This 100mm DV 12 System with flowtech 100 Carbon Fiber Legs and Carry Bag from Sachtler provides you with a tripod system that includes a DV 12 fluid head, flowtech 100 legs, a removable ground spreader, and a padded carry bag. The DC 12SB features a Touch-and-Go camera plate and supports up to 31 pounds. For balancing your camera on the head, it features 2.8" sliding range on the camera platform. 12 steps of counterbalance adjustment as well as 5 steps of pan drag, plus a zero setting, enable adjusting your head to match the needs of the shot.

The flowtech 100 carbon fiber legs are lightweight and extremely stable. Capable of supporting up to 66 pounds, they resist twist when panning for smooth camera movements. The legs have three self-locking positions, or for more height adjustment you can use the included ground spreader, which folds neatly into the legs when packed for transport, and it allows a working height range from 10 to 62.2". The carry handle attaches to the head fitting of the legs, providing a comfortable way to carry the legs. The padded bag holds the head and legs during transport and storage.

Sachtler DV 12SB Fluid Head (100mm)

The Sachtler DV 12SB Fluid Head with a 100 mm bowl and integrated flat base fitting, and a load capacity of up to 31 lbs (14kg), is the choice for the professional videographer utilizing heavy camcorders who demands the smoothest pans and tilts as well as rapid setup. It features a 12-step counterbalance system with a 2.8" (70mm) sliding plate for perfect balance, and 5 steps of drag plus zero in both axes for whip pans. The Touch & Go quick-release system makes mounting and takedown a nonissue: no fumbling, no struggling, no worries. For complete flexibility and ease of operation in unforgiving circumstances, the DV-12SB is a sound choice.

Sachtler flowtech 100 mm Carbon Fiber Tripod (Ground Spreader)

The Sachtler flowtech 100 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ground Spreader eschews the common single or double carbon fiber tube design; instead it has redesigned the shape of the legs for improved torsional strength. The legs weigh 8.8 pounds, yet they can support a payload of up to 66 pounds, and extend from a minimum height of 16.9" to a maximum height of 62.6" when using the included removable ground spreader. Each leg features a single clamping lever that locks and unlocks the sections.

Each leg extends or retracts independently from the other two, and when it is detached from the spreader each leg can pivot without affecting the other legs. This is especially useful when working on rough or uneven terrain. You can remove the spreader completely and lock each leg in one of three positions, so you can work without a spreader if you wish. This enables you to spread the legs extremely wide for low shots while the tripod legs maintain their torsional stability. The dual spikes at the end of each leg provide extra grip when working on softer ground.

Features

Dual-stage, carbon fiber, 100mm bowl tripod.
Three 3/8"-16 accessory mounting holes are integrated into the outside of the 100mm bowl.
The legs by themselves weigh only 8.8 pounds but support up to 66 pounds.
The design and construction of the legs provide tremendous torsional stability. In other words, the legs resist twisting when you pan the tripod head.
Each leg features a single clamping lever lock design at the top of the leg, near the 100mm bowl. This allows you to loosen all three leg sections from a single location, saving you time while reducing the wear and tear on your body as you don't have to bend down to loosen a lock at the bottom to lower or raise the legs.
The legs incorporate a locking mechanism that enables the legs to move freely for working with a spreader, or to lock at one of three angles when working without a spreader.
With the spreader, the height range is 16.9 to 62.6". However, if you remove the ground spreader and utilize the built-in locking mechanism, the usable height range is 10.2 to 60.2".

question

Hi! im Ricky from Monterrey, Mexico; has anybody used this tripod with a RED Epic/Scarlet with a lightweight configuration, around 16-18Kg (35-39Lb). Does the pan and tilt work properly? the last year ive used a $800 manfrotto just for pulling the work done, but now it is almost depleted, i cant put the scarlet back on it. so, will this hold the scarlet?
Asked by: Ricky M.
I have a light weight camera (Sony ax2000) the tripod is greased for the high end of the camera weight specification. I had to take the tripod apart and basically remove some of the grease for it to pan and tilt properly. I guess in selection you need one that the max weight is close to your camera weight.
