Sachtler 1863S2 Overview

  • 1Description

The Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head & ENG 2 CF Tripod System comprises of the Video 18 S2 head, ENG 2 CF carbon fiber tripod legs, mid-level spreader, set of three rubber feet, and a padded bag. The fluid head has a payload capacity of 4 to 44.1 lb with support for DSLR setups, ENG, and digital cinema cameras. It offers sixteen steps of counterbalance and seven steps of pan and tilt drag, along with locks for each axis. The head is packed with features such as temperature resistance, a Touch & Go quick release camera plate, parking positions for spare camera screws, and an illuminated leveling bubble.

The fluid head attaches to the dual-stage tripod via a 100mm bowl interface. With the head attached, the tripod offers a height adjustment of 26.4 to 66.1" and collapses to 35". The mid-level spreader and rubber feet hold the tripod legs in position, providing rigidity and stability. The tripod system packs into the padded bag for easy transportation.

  • Video 18 S2 Fluid Head

    Able to handle DSLR setups weighing four pounds up to ENG and digital cinema cameras weighing 40 pounds, the Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head can fit into a wide range of video productions. Sixteen steps of counterbalance and seven steps of pan and tilt drag, along with locks for each axis, let you easily customize the response of the Video 18 S2 to fit your application, be it studio or field production.

    The top of the Video 18 S2 head is dominated by a sliding balance platform which accepts Sachtler's convenient Touch & Go quick release camera plate. Once the plate is secured, the entire platform adjusts to balance your camera setup. At the front of the platform, parking spaces for 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16, and registration pin screws are available for when they are not being used. Both sides of the head feature rosette mounts for pan handles. A right-side pan handle is included with the Video 18 S2. The base of the head terminates in a 100mm bowl mount for coupling with industry standard tripods, jibs, sliders, or other grip equipment that feature 100mm bowls.
