    Sachtler 0775 reviews

    0775 FSB-8 Tripod System with Speed Lock 75 Tripod is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just okay I hope Sachtler reads these reviews because I have tried to contact them about his numerous times and they have ignored me every time. I have called, emailed, even Facebooked - they must not want or need to respond to their customers I guess. I really liked this tripod at first but then began to find it's shortcomings. it handles nowhere near the payload it says. I am at about 15 pounds and the legs become weak. The feet - forget about the feet. They ripped and broken numerous times. I have asked to have them replaced. Nothing. They are very very cheaply made. The speedlock is nice but again, its weak. For almost $, you wish it would work as advertised.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good tripod and head for pmw-ex1r I'm using the tripod/head with the Sony PMW-EX1R camera, and wanted in particular a small, lightweight tripod that can travel easily, stow into a small space, has ball leveling, and a good true fluid head for pan/tilt of the camera. The FSB-8 with the side load is a fine head for the purpose, the counterbalance works well set at '2' for the camera weight, and springback in the counterbalance is offset when the tilt drag is set to 1 (minimum drag level, as 0 = off/no drag at all). The sideload plate is excellent for video cameras, as the plate has sufficient front/back slide to adjust for camera balance. I use the quick release plate a lot as I always remove the camera from the tripod prior to adjusting tripod height. The speed lock feature of the tripod is quite nice, makes it simple to extend/retract the legs for setup. Overall I'm quite happy. Things that could be improved: the bowl locking handle on the FSB-8 is a rather long, long enough that it would not fit under the hi-hat that I have - so I purchased a second lock handle and cut the plastic handle short enough to fit the hi-hat. It would also be nice to have a carrying strap included with the tripod. A hook under the ball mount for adding a stabilizing weight or tie down is missing, so I'll need to figure out how to add one to the tripod.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sachtler FSB 8 Here is one of my experiences in using the Sachtler FSB 8: I put a Sony PMW-200 camera on the Sachtler FSB 8 to shoot photographs and paper doucments with Tiffen's close- lense, the mentioned tripod provided very smooth pan & till movements as expected and it performed very well at the starting & stopping points, its performance has been satisfactory. However, I was gravely surprised that one of the rubber feet of set mid-level spreader 75 was torn as shown as attached photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do it, buy this tripod I have used Sachtler before and knew they were great tripods. I will be using this tripod for video production. I wanted to get a tripod that I could use with a DSLR rig but also heavier cameras that I might use in freelance gigs or might purchase some time in the future. Got the tripod and it's one of the most beautiful things I've ever owned. Simply fantastic fluid movements with enough flexibility to handle light or heavy cameras. To boot, it's carbon fiber so it's very light--a must if you shoot by yourself. And, of course, you can extend the legs fully without ever having to bend over--one release per leg extends both sections. This is a great tripod that I plan to use for a very long time. Definitely worth the purchase price. If you're on the fence, get it. You won't regret your purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Gear Just a great product from the best tripod manufacturer on the globe. I've been in the Film+Video world for close to 30 years and have used just about every brand of pro tripod made: Sacthler, Vinten, Miller, Manfrotto, you name it. This is just great kit. It always seems that it can take a few minutes to get the counter-balance and drag just right the first time you mount a new camera rig to a tripod and I was amazed at how quick and seamless the process was with the FSB-8. My only small complaint is that the legs locks are a bit stiff - which is probably a good thing - but to open them, you almost have to use one finger to insert into the lock. I'm still giving it 5 Stars, though. You will not regret purchasing this rig. And get the Sideload version...very slick!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent investment This is an excellent investment. The CF legs are awesome, especially when you have to change the heights in a hurry. I use this tripod for my Sony HVR Z7U rig that weighs about 11 lb. The FSB8 head can take upto 20 lb, but I recommend not to exceed 15 lb. Once properly balanced it gives very smooth and solid performance. I debated getting the Aluminium versus the carbon fibre legs. I am glad I spent that extra money. It is well worth the investment. I also use a Sachtler dolly and the whole setup is a charm to work with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's good and for the price it should be We use this tripod when videotaping animal cruelty. It provides very smooth camera movement without interruption - no bumpy video or blurred pictures. It's lightweight for lengthy distances on foot to our shoot location, yet very sturdy support for our very heavy Canon EF 800 mm lens and our Canon camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Tripod This tripod is awesome! I was looking for a light weight tripod that could still handle a heavy camera. This thing does the trick! It holds my RED Weapon setup perfectly. It is super sturdy and the carrying case is really nice. I'd buy this again.
