Sachtler Ace XL Tripod System Overview

The Sachtler Ace XL Tripod System with 75mm bowl combines the Ace XL fluid head with the Ace 75/2 CF carbon fiber tripod and a mid-level spreader. Designed for digital cine-style cameras, the Ace XL supports rigs weighing up to 17.6 pounds. This system is suitable for larger DSLR and mirrorless MFT cameras, as well as pro-style cameras such as the Blackmagic URSA Mini, Canon C200/C300 Mk II, Sony FS7, and the Panasonic EVA1.

The Ace XL fluid head features eight steps of counterbalance and three steps of pan and tilt drag adjustment, plus a zero drag option for pan and tilt. Cameras are mounted using the slide-in balancing plate. With a sliding range of 4.1", this head can adapt to a variety of rig configurations. Additional features include a detachable right-side pan bar and an illuminated bubble level. With an integrated flat head base, the Ace XL can be used when shooting with a slider.

This 75mm bowl-based combo has a 31 to 67" height range for capturing low and high shots. Its integrated mid-level spreader aids in quickly setting the tripod up on level or uneven surfaces. The rubber feet at the base of the two-stage legs can be removed, exposing dual spikes for extra stability outdoors. When you've completed shooting, collapse the Ace XL Tripod System to its 34" folded length and pack it into the included padded case.

If I had a C200 or similar using a vct plate, could this head support the force of locking the plate in place?
Asked by: Gage
A VCT plate assembly could attach to the Plate included with the ACE XL head. It supports up to 17lb payloads and should not have issues with weight or the force of mounting the C200 with a VCT baseplate.
