DV-12SB Fluid Head (100mm) and Carbon Fiber Tripod Kit Reviews

Great Tripod System

By Mark
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2018-12-04

Ive owned this system for several years and have nothing but good thing to say. Terrific option for documentary cinematographers. The Sachtler 12SB head is great for medium sized cameras such as the Canon C300 mkI&II, Sony FS 7s, etc., and I use a RED Epic on it with no issues. The sticks are lightweight and rugged. Not inexpensive, but you truly get what you pay for.

This is a typical Sachtler tripod... exactly what you would expect. It's easy to use with a good counterbalance. The only downside, as with other hotpods, is the lack of ability to get low to the ground.

works well so far

i've been using it for the last 2 months and it's been okay. But I have problems with the floor spreader. The rubber catch doesn't hold onto the spreader very well and it tends to go out of position. This is my experience with rented Sachtlers with the same spreader as well. The tilt drag control is also a little stiff, maybe it's still a little new.

It's a Sachtler... need I say more?

It's a Sachtler... need I say more? They make the best fluid tripod heads, period. It's definitely worth the investment! This combo in particular is great. The speed legs are awesome and the mid level spreader is so much better than the cheaper ground spreader which will keep breaking on you. I've had already two ground spreaders break in the past. It also comes with their great form fitted bag.

Love Sachtler products

I love using Sachtler for my tripods. I prefer the mid level riser as its much easier to maneuver in and around set. This tripod was a well needed addition.

question

Hi! im Ricky from Monterrey, Mexico; has anybody used this tripod with a RED Epic/Scarlet with a lightweight configuration, around 16-18Kg (35-39Lb). Does the pan and tilt work properly? the last year ive used a $800 manfrotto just for pulling the work done, but now it is almost depleted, i cant put the scarlet back on it. so, will this hold the scarlet?
Asked by: Ricky M.
I have a light weight camera (Sony ax2000) the tripod is greased for the high end of the camera weight specification. I had to take the tripod apart and basically remove some of the grease for it to pan and tilt properly. I guess in selection you need one that the max weight is close to your camera weight.
