The Sachtler 0371A Tripod System with FSB 4 Fluid Head, Aluminum Legs, and Ground Spreader is a full tripod system for videographers who use cameras and accessories up to 8.8 pounds. The FSB 4 fluid head is suitable for larger DSLR and mirrorless MFT cameras, as well as smaller camcorders.

The fluid head features five steps of counterbalance plus 0, and three steps of pan and tilt drag adjustment, plus a zero drag option for pan and tilt.

The legs can support up to 44 pounds, which easily handles the weight of the head, your camera, and accessories. Each leg is individually adjustable, providing a stable platform, even when working on uneven terrain. The included ground level spreader is suitable for use on hard and soft surfaces, and it helps protect delicate surfaces. The padded carry bag holds the tripod system fully assembled with the head mounted on the legs.

Sachtler FSB 4 Fluid Head

With its 8.8 lb capacity and compact size, the Sachtler FSB 4 Fluid Head is ideal for supporting small handheld camcorders and video-enabled DSLRs. As the only head in its class to feature Sachtler's Sideload mechanism, the FSB 4 boasts an exceptionally large sliding range of 4.7". Along with a 5-step counterbalance, this ensures extremely quick and precise balancing. At the same time, no-compromise vibration damping allows for extremely subtle and finely graded movement.

Sachtler 75/2 Aluminum Tripod for 75mm Fluid Heads

The Sachtler 75/2 Aluminum Tripod for 75mm Fluid Heads is a two-stage tripod that supports up to 44 pounds and is well suited for use with lightweight cameras such as DV-sized camcorders and DSLR cameras. This item is for the legs with head fitting only and does not include available spreaders or rubber feet. The legs feature a working height range of 16.6 to 61.8" when using a ground spreader.

Each leg is independently adjustable in height and angle, allowing you to quickly rough in your position. The adjustments allow the tripod legs to work in oddly shaped spaces and remain stable on uneven surfaces. The lever leg locks are durable and lock the leg heights quickly and securely. The tripod legs can be used by themselves on soft ground, with rubber feet, with a mid-level spreader, or with a ground spreader.

The legs feature independent height adjustments and spread, which allow the legs to remain stable on rough terrain and uneven surfaces including stairs.
The dual spiked feet provide a firm grip on soft surfaces, such as earth or sand, when the legs are at a normal height or when you need to spread them wide for low-angle shots.

Sachtler Spreader SP 75 Ground Tripod Spreader

The Sachtler SP 75 Ground Tripod Spreader fits all 75mm tripods except flowtech, Soom, and Ace M/MS, and it's used when shooting on a level surface such as a studio, city street, office, sports field, or stadium. It allows for rapid setup and pull-down by keeping tripod legs at an equal or preset distance relative to each other. The SP 75 spreader attaches directly to the bottom of a tripod's feet and its telescopic arms allow for the extension of the legs.

Sachtler DV 75 S Padded Bag

The Sachtler DV 75 S Padded Bag is a soft tripod bag designed to carry the Sachtler ENG 75/2 D tripod with various DV heads. The case can be carried by the interlocking handles or with the attached shoulder strap.

Is the fsb 6 too much support for a sony a7s3 with a 24-70 lens attached?
Asked by: Scott
The FSB6 might be a bit too much for the A7SIII, especially if you use a lens that keeps the weight below 3.3 pounds. The FSB4 would be a better option.

What's the difference between this head and the ACE XL head?
Asked by: Justin
The FSB 4 head offers a capacity up to 8.8 Pounds with a 5-Step Counterbalance. While the Ace XL goes between 4.4 to 17.6 pounds and has an incremental 8-Step Counterbalance system. However the FSB line up in general offers a higher quality build over the Ace series as far as the materials used.

Will this rig support a basic Sony FS7 setup?
Asked by: Kyle
This tripod has an 8.8 pound load capacity. If you keep the total weight of the FS7 below that you may be able to use it, but we do not recommend this tripod for a camera like the FS7. We recommend an FSB 6 based system instead, which has a load capacity between 3.3 - 17.6 pounds. https://bhpho.to/2GWZfEd
