  • 1Description

The Sachtler FSB-6 / 2 MD Aluminum Tripod System offers stable movements to deliver the best images possible. The FSB-6 system consists of the FSB-6 fluid head with Sideload S camera plate, the ENG 75/2 D two-stage aluminum tripod with mid-level spreader, and a padded case.

Frictionless Leak-Proof Fluid Damping
Frictionless leak-proof fluid damping with three levels of drag, for perfect pictures while panning, without jerks and vibrations. Identical across both horizontal and vertical planes, and allows complete disengagement of drag for fast panning.
Snap and Go
The FSB-6 head accepts a payload up to 17.6 lb while using Sachtler's Snap & Go side-loading mechanism.
Dynamic Counterbalancing System
The dynamic counterbalancing system compensates for torque as the camera tilts, preventing the camera from inadvertently tipping while ensuring that it is positioned securely at any tilt angle.
Safe at Any Temperature
Operates without any friction from -40 to 140°F.
The aluminum tripod offers very economical and strong support.

    Sachtler 0473 reviews

    FSB-6 / 2 MD Aluminum Tripod System is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Sacthler The head is great, no regrets what so ever, the legs are light and because of that a bit unstable, I knew what I was getting into but wish the legs were a bit more stable. On pans I get a slight amount of bounce-back from the legs torquing and relaxing on level 3 dampening. Note the fsb has a short thread that will not work with most 75 to 100mm adapters, this was confusing to me and I bought a manfrotto 325n that did not work with the included adapter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great The tripod is basic but it does well, it is lightweight and easy to use, maybe a little too light but ok. The head performs flawlessly, good construction, compact, nice and superb smooth, expensive but you get what you pay for. For me a no doubt i would not go back to a cheaper brand, i like it more than the other brands similar in price. Go for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I've been using this tripod for four years in every type of weather imaginable. I've used it with DSLRs, Lightweight cine cams and Prosumer camcorders.Drag is easily adjustable and the long mounting plate makes it very easy to balance. The ball-mount is really convenient when you need to be set up quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight. Good operation. A plastic part has increased probably because of lightening. The leg is compact. SB head is good for HDV cameras.
