Sachtler Ace XL overview

  • 1Description

The Sachtler Ace XL Tripod System with 75mm bowl combines the Ace XL fluid head with carbon fiber legs and a ground 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 variously-configured rigs. 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 configured for shooting with a slider.

This 75mm bowl-based combo has a 22 to 68" height range for capturing low and high shots. Its ground spreader aids in quickly setting the tripod up on level ground, and can be removed when working on an uneven surface. When the rubber spreader is removed, it exposes 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 & Ground Spreader (75mm Bowl) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flimsier and smaller than I thought Probably a case of buyer error on this one, but the tripod doesn't seem well suited to anything more than DSLR videography. I was attracted by the CF legs, the weight capacity and of course the Sachtler brand, but when I received the tripod I was underwhelmed. It doesn't look nearly as beefy as competing tripod systems (ex. Manfrotto with 504HD head) and comes at a higher cost. The fluid head works perfectly and the drag levels are fantastic, I just don't have confidence that it will be stable enough when pushed to the limit with our cinema rig. Guess I was just expecting a beefier product from Sachtler. I guess you gotta pay to play!
