The Ace XL System with SpeedLock Tripod from Sachtler combines the Ace XL fluid head with 75mm bowl, the SpeedLock 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 cameras, as well as pro-style cine cameras.
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 a 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 30 to 63" 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, quickly collapse the Ace XL Tripod System to 32.67" long and pack it into the included padded case.
