Is AKTIV8 Sachtler appropriate for a PXW-Z750 ...

Is AKTIV8 Sachtler appropriate for a PXW-Z750 with 5 pound lens with a 96w battery? Wondering if I need to step up to Aktiv10.
Asked by: benjamin
The Sachtler aktiv8 will support up to 26lb payload weight. The Camera is 9lbs and the lens is 5lbs. You would still have room for more equipment. I think the Active8 would be fine. But the Aktiv10 would also support up to 26lb payloads however it has a more stable strong 100mm bowl fitting for the head. The Aktiv8 head would be amaller at 75mm.

Does the Aktiv8 head work with VCT-14 quick ...

Does the Aktiv8 head work with VCT-14 quick release plate? Old school Sony, has 1/4 and 3/8 screws. How does the pin work with that?
Asked by: Kevin
Yes, the Sony VCT-14 plate will mount onto the Sachtler's aktiv8 quick release plate. The Sony plate has a series of 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 ports underneath that are spaced out so that the pin will sit in the 3/8"-16 port when screwing in the 1/4"-20. Apart from that, the aktiv8 main feature is centered around how the head mounts and clamps onto the tripod legs. This is a perfect setup for integrating with a VCT style workflow.
