Sachtler Ace XL overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Sachtler Ace XL reviews

    Ace XL Tripod System with CF Legs & Mid-Level Spreader (75mm Bowl) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for DSLR and small C100M2/C200 camera This is my 1st true fluid+CF sticks. wow, so smooth. The XL is very similar to the FSB6 in terms of weight capacity but at a more affordable price. The tripod is made in Costa Rica in case you guys are wondering, however the built quality is superb. Some parts are made with plastic to reduce weight and cost. Body/lens combo I've used so far: 5d4+100-400L, 5d4+70-200LII, and C100M2+70-200LII (all these only required a lv. 2 counter balance setup.) and 5d4+16-35LIII(at lv 1 counter balance setup)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, good The head is great. THe legs are fine. Definitely a step up from a stills tripod with a video head grafted on. Lightweight. My only concern is that one of the lower leg joints is causing the lower section of the leg to be hard to pull out. It doesn't just slide out at the turn of the screw. I have to pull the leg down. Something that looks like a rubber gasket is stuck between the carbon fiber leg and the plastic 'coupler' thing. I think it's starting to work it's way out though... not sure if that means trouble with it down the road... Overall it's a good tripod to work with outside of the stuck leg.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ACE XL Tripod - Lot's to Like First of all LIGHT. Compared to my high-end Cartoni I've been using for eight years the Sachtler Ace is really great to carry around even with camera mounted. I would caution against pushing weight limit as this version is more suited to a camera not fully rigged out. The ACE retracts to compact size and has adjustable hard-stop settings for pan, tilt, take the guesswork out of setting up head. Works great with my FS5. Recommend this tripod for light to moderately heavy rigs.
