The Sachtler Video 18 S2 Head System with ENG 2D Aluminum Tripod & Ground Spreader provides you with a complete tripod system featuring a 100mm ball-leveling fluid head. This Video 18 S2 combination supports camera rigs 4.4 to 48.5 lb while still operating smoothly at lower drag settings when using DSLRs and other lighter-weight cameras. A two-stage aluminum 100mm-bowl tripod with ground-level spreader and a padded carrying bag round out this combo.
Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head
Able to handle DSLR setups weighing four pounds up to ENG and digital cinema cameras weighing 48.5 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 that 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.

Sachtler Spreader SP 100 On-Ground Tripod Spreader - for all 100mm Bowl Tripods (Except DA-100 Short Tripod)
A On-Ground Spreader is chosen when shooting is performed on a level surface, such as studio, city streets, offices, sport fields and stadiums. It allows for rapid set-up and pull down by keeping tripod legs at an equal or preset distance relative to each other. Attaches directly to the feet at the bottom of a tripod and its arms are telescopic to allow extension of a tripod leg without detaching the spreader. Fits all 100mm bowl tripods (except DA-100 Short tripod)
