The Sachtler 3012 System 30 EFP 2 MCF consists of the 3006 Cine 30 HD 150mm fluid head, 6386 EFP 2 CF tripod, 7007 mid-level spreader, 3370 telescoping pan arm, 3060 side-load camera plate, and the 7004 rubber feet 100/150 (set of three).
Any long-suffering camera assistant will appreciate the Cine 30 HD 150mm fluid head and its unique side-load sliding camera plate. With the camera fully equipped, mounting and dismounting using the Snap & Go locking mechanism is safe, efficient, and worry-free. It is fully compatible with Arri and OConnor camera plates, and features a fine adjustment for a tight, secure fit even if the plate is worn from use. Counterbalance is accomplished with an 18-step selector dial and a high/low range lever for rapid, yet fine-tuned, repeatable setups. Horizontal and vertical drag is governed by a similar 7-step (plus zero) indexed selector system in conjunction with Sachtler's patented leak-proof frictionless cartridges, which carry a separate 5-year warranty. A tilt safety lock guarantees the integrity of the payload until it is secured, and caliper disk brakes ensure reliable pan and tilt fixing during operation with a quick flip of a short-throw lever.
The 6386 EFP 2 CF one-stage tripod features a die-cast 150mm receiver, dual 22.0mm carbon fiber composite leg tubes, and rapid-action clamps for fast, secure setups. Stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum, carbon fiber composites have the added advantage of absorbing vibration- a particularly useful trait with HD cameras. Used in conjunction with the included 7007 mid-level spreader and the 7004 rubber feet, payload integrity is assured regardless of terrain.
Naturally, the 3012 System 30 is covered by the standard Sachtler 3-year warranty, as well as comprehensive worldwide voice and web-based tech support, complete with CAD drawings, manuals, and service bulletins.
