The Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head & Speed Lock CF Dual-Stage Tripod System provides you with a complete tripod system featuring a 100mm ball-leveling fluid head. This upgraded version of the Video 18 S1 handles loads up to 44 lb while still operating smoothly at lower drag settings when using DSLRs and other lightweight cameras. A two-stage carbon fiber 100mm bowl tripod with a mid-level spreader, a SpeedLevel clamp, and a padded carrying bag round out this combo. The Video 18 S2's counterbalance knob lets you dial in 16 steps of weight compensation. A handy feature for multi-camera shoots, the boost button quickly adjusts the overall weight range when switching between heavier and lighter loads.

The SpeedLevel clamp offers squeeze-and-release locking of the head on the tripod, eliminating the fumbling sometimes encountered when trying to screw on a traditional tie-down lock. The carbon fiber tripod legs have a mid-level spreader to increase stability and Speed Lock clamps for quick setup of the two-stage legs. The tripod and head together extend from 2.2 to 5.5', and the combined weight of the components is just under 19 lb.

  • 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.

  • Speed-Lock CF Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs

    It takes just three quick movements and the Speed Lock CF is ready for action - and users don't even have to bend over! The patented clamping system lets you adjust the tripod smoothly and safely, even with a camera mounted. The Speed Lock CF's carbon fiber construction ensures minimal load-free weight, and increases stability and twist resistance. On top of that, the clamping connection forms a third tube to further increase stability. The ergonomically shaped, high-tech clamps have a rounded design, which ensures that cables slide off without catching. In addition, you can tell at a glance whether the legs are clamped into position. The Speed Lock CF weighs less than 3 kg / 6.6 lb, only a couple of hundred grams more than the ENG 2 CF, highly favored by camera crews all over the world. And of course, it's compatible with all existing 100-mm accessories.

    Double extension design
    Maximum height of 60.9-inch

  • Mid-Level Tripod Spreader

    A Mid-Level Spreader is chosen when shooting is often performed on uneven surfaces, such as steps, rocky ground, slopes. It allows for rapid set-up and pull down by keeping tripod legs at an equal or preset distance relative to each other. Attaches to the center bracket of a tripod and its arms are telescopic to allow extension of a tripod leg without detaching the spreader. Fits all 100mm, 150mm bowl, (except short tripods) OB-2000M, Cine 2000 and Cine 2000 Medium tripods.

  • Rubber Feet (Set of 3)

    Set of three Sachtler Rubber Feet. Snap these feet onto your tripod when it's not possible to use the dual spiked feet, ideal on slippery and glossy floors. For all Tripods with Off-Ground Spreaders (Except OB-2000/M and Cine 2000/M tripods).

  • SpeedLevel Clamp for Sachtler 100mm Fluid Heads

    The Sachtler SpeedLevel Clamp for Sachtler 100mm Fluid Heads is innovatively designed with squeeze handles that let you more accurately and easily level your fluid head. Instead of the traditional twisting and untwisting, the SpeedLevel Clamp loosens the head position when you squeeze the handles and sets the head in place the moment you release the squeeze.

    The SpeedLevel Clamp is compatible with all Sachtler 100mm heads and supports a maximum weight of 55 lb. (Third-party heads may not be compatible because a Sachtler 10mm thread is required.)
