Sachtler 0373 overview

  • 1Description

The Sachtler 0373 FSB-4 is an aluminum tripod system offering stable movements for creating the best images possible. This FSB-4 system consists of the FSB-4 fluid head, 2-stage aluminum tripod, mid-level spreader and 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-4 head accepts a payload from 0 to 4kg while using Sachtler's Snap & Go sideload mechanism.
Dynamic Counterbalancing System
The dynamic counterbalancing system compensates for torques as the camera tilts, preventing the camera from inadvertently tipping, and ensuring that it is positioned securely at any tilt angle.
Safe at any Temperature
Operates without any frictions from -40°F to +140°F.
The Sachtler two stage aluminum tripod is designed for ultralight DV camcorders with its proven Touch & Go system. This system enables fast changeovers from the tripod to the shoulder within a matter of seconds.

    Sachtler 0373 reviews

    0373 FSB-4 Aluminum Tripod System is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and Durable Independent Documentary Producer. PROS: It is very solid and sturdy. The fluid head is well made and operates smoothly in both tilt and pan. It can be locked down tight to where it does not move at all. CONS: It can't be set up very quickly because of its twist-knob leg locks. The screw that fastens the quick release to the camera can work loose from the small aluminum guide when not in use and fall off. I found both screw and guide loose inside the bag when I unpacked the tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent tripod I have always preferred to use Sachtler tripods for video productions because of the solid construction and ease of use. The FSB-4 has lived up to and surpassed all of my expectations. Every aspect of the engineering shows the refinements of many years of research and development. Most importantly it provides silky-smooth pans and tilts. The quick release functions conveniently. The counterbalance allows for easy adjustments for a variety of settings. Sachtler produces an excellent product that sets the bench mark for all others to emulate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine German engineering This is a fine piece of equipment in both form and function. It does everything a fluid head and tripod should: provide solid support, enable smooth motion, and protect the camera. The mounting plate snaps in place, allowing the balance to be accurately adjusted while preventing the plate from sliding off. There are 5 levels of counterbalance. I couldn't exactly match the weight of my camera, but a adding a bit of tilt drag was all that was required to make the camera remain at any angle. The tilt and pan have 3 different drag settings each and the motion is perfectly smooth. The zero drag setting is just that. Set the pan to zero and the camera will spin freely. This is the second FSB-4 I've purchased. Some other reviewers have complained about the legs and spreader but I'm satisfied with those as well as the exceptional fluid head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Lightweight Tripod This unit and head are very well made and easy to use. We use it with a Sony HVR-Z5U and it is easily up to the challenge. It is not heavy and comes with a good bag to tote it around. Everything adjusts smoothly and it looks every bit as professional as it's more expensive bigger siblings. It feels solid I would like some more variation in the drags, but that is minor, especially when you look at the bang for buck.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice I use the tripod quite often. It's lightweight and very sturdy. I just purchased a new P2 camera and its a perfect fit. I highly recommend this tripod for any Videographer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 stage solid tripod Great light tripod with very soft head operation, gives you perfect control over panning and tilting. It lacks lighting for the level bubble.
