Sachtler 0375 overview

  • 1Description

The Sachtler 0375 FSB-4 is a carbon fiber tripod system offering stable movements to deliver the best images possible. The FSB-4 system consists of the FSB-4 fluid head, 2-stage carbon fiber tripod, mid-level spreader and case.

Snap and Go
The FSB-4 head accepts a payload from 0 to 4 kg 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.
Tripod
The Sachtler 4588 Speed Lock 75 carbon fiber tripod with 75 mm levelling bowl supports up to 44.1 lb (20 kg). Speed Lock tripods feature traditional dual-tube design with a twist -- three leg clamps instead of six for rapid setup to catch fast breaking news.

    Sachtler 0375 reviews

    0375 FSB-4 Carbon Fiber Tripod System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Everyone has a bad day I've been a fan of Sachtler tripods for 25 years. Unfortunately, I got a dud when I ordered this tripod. One of the leg clamps wouldn't close completely, causing me to doubt its stability and its reliability. Trying to avoid lost time, I asked B&H if there were a way for me to fix the clamp without returning it or sending it off to a service center; B&H responded with a few suggestions. I appreciated their helpfulness but nothing worked. Rather than perching an expensive camera atop this platform and hoping for the best, I sent the tripod back. B&H accepted the return without issue. Though Sachtler's tripod had a manufacturing defect, B&H's customer service was flawless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best for basic DSLR setup ignore the FSB-2, it only hods 2kg. the FSB-4 is best for basic DSLR setup, I want to keep everything as light as possible, so I chose the FSB-4. I also considered the FSB-6 and FSB-8, but their prices kept me off. FSB-4 has one spring for counterbalance, 6 has two and 8 has three. I also don't like the toy-like battery door which the FSB-6/8 has, how a professional head would come with a such amateur battery cover is beyond me. I have tried Manfrotto 504 and Libec DV55, the FSB-4 is better than them. The package is also a good bargain. I use Canon 1D MK4 with lens up to 300/4, which I think is its limits. If you have something like 70-200/2.8 or 200/2 or 300/2.8 beyond, FSB-8 is what you need, or Sachtler's 100mm heads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made in Germany When I was 17 I got my very first job as a camera assistant at a local TV station in Germany. They used heavy-duty Sachtler tripods and they sure took some heavy beating, but somehow always survived. I just received the 0375 FSB-4 today and I was surprised how well it was built. It seems that the people at Sachtler really put some thought into some smart and helpful features: You don't have to slide the camera plate back in for example - just drop it in, click, tighten, done. The tripod almost seems small altogether, but it's perfect for small(er) DV/HDV and HD camcorders. Above all: Excellent value. I'm sure I'll still be working with this tripod in 15 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best portable video tripod This tripod + head offers a great weight / rigidity ratio thanks to the carbon legs, it is very stable for location work and, thanks to the original single release lever for each leg, very quick to deploy and fold. In fact everything is both very quick (e.g. setting the head to horizontal), well thought-out and clear to use. The fluid head is remarkably smooth in both directions. I used it during a trade show, lots of moving about, setting up and changes, with a Canon 5D MkIII, 70-200 2.8 lens, sound and LCD monitor gear, 8-10 lbs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Worth the price I work on documentaries, live events, a lot of light eng type work with some higher end stuff thrown in, but we really like a nice pro feel and that's exactly what I felt when I tried out this system. It was a little pricer than I wanted, but the cheapest, lightest, most stable, most pleasing feel of anything at B&H under 3K. So from that point of view it was a steal. Its fast, its light, it's simple and reliable. I would have loved something a little more heavy duty, but that's not coming at this price point. I am a little worried about wear and tear as there are a ton of moving parts, but after several shoots its been a total dream.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and Solid I use my Sachtler mostly for DLSR filmmaking and couldn't be happier. It's light, solid, and it's super smooth with pans and tilts. The fact that each leg only has one lock for adjusting height is brilliant because it makes your set-up quick and easy. I'm in love with this thing. Yeah, it's a little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. I was stuck between the FSB-4 and the Manfrotto 504HD, but after using both tripod systems extensively I have to go with the Sachtler, hands down. The only thing I don't like is the total amount of weight it can support. The FSB-4 is rated for 8.8 lbs which doesn't seem like much. Honestly though, I never have more than 6lbs of gear total on my tripod, even with my Canon 70-200mm lens (which is fairly heavy) so I'm not worried. The higher level FSB tripods support more weight, but they're a little out of my price range. Bottom line: If you're investing in a DSLR video tripod that'll last you a long while, the FSB-4 with the carbon fiber legs should be at the top of your contender's list.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fluid head, above-average sticks I bought this tripod system after using a 501HDV head for years. I am currently shooting on 5D / 60D although I occasionally use an EX3, for field documentary work in extreme temperature conditions. I did a lot of research and landed on this model, and am glad I did. The FSB4 head is a delight to use. This head is smooth and easy to use and is miles ahead of the Manfrotto models. These sticks are also a pleasure-- they deploy with the flick of a single lever, making them one of the fastest models I've used. I got sick of turning multiple levers per leg, especially when jumping in and out of a car and trying to capture fast-moving aircraft. This model allows me to quickly extend the legs, as they are heavy enough to drop down by themselves when the levers are opened. I believe this model of sticks beats the pricier models that rely on turn-cranks for each leg segment. I've withheld one star, because there are more plastic parts than I would expect for an item this expensive. Also, the first one that I got had to be returned, because the level bubble had dried out. Otherwise I am very happy with this purchase. I am typically tough on my gear, and while I've only battle-tested this tripod for a week now, it seems pretty rugged, although time will tell how well the plastic bits hold up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, Professional Gear I bought this tripod to use with a Canon 7D fitted out for cinema-style video. It's a lot more expensive than some of the other options, but it's definitely worth it. We used Sachtlers mostly in film school, and I got spoiled. Still, when it came time to buy, I was tempted to get something cheaper (I won't mention any names...) but I am so glad I didn't. Here is what I like about it. The head is easy to level, the legs have enough weight to drop when you release them, and you only have one set of locks to worry about on each leg. Also, the action of the fluidhead is smooth and consistent and easily adjustable. The carbon fiber is light and more durable than aluminum. You pull this tripod out of its bag and people know you're not messing around. And you're not. You won't waste any time trying to level the three legs or get steady footing or redoing pans or tilts or any of that other nonsense. Just smooth working. That's what I like. Here's what I don't like. It's expensive. But I'm over it.
