The Sachtler Video 18 FT MS flowtech 100 Tripod System is a bundle by Sachtler that includes the Video 18 fluid head with the flowtech 100 MS tripod. The lightweight, carbon fiber tripod paired with the fluid head are capable of supporting up to 48 lbs, and the two together offer a quick and simple setup, smooth, fluid panning and tilting, and stable support for your heavier Electronic News Gathering (ENG) camera rigs. Additionally, you will also receive a carrying handle and a padded bag with your tripod and fluid head bundle. 

Video 18 S2 Fluid Head

Able to handle DSLR setups weighing four pounds up to ENG and digital cinema cameras weighing 40 pounds, the Sachtler Video 18 S2 Fluid Head can fit into a wide range of video productions. Sixteen steps of counterbalance and seven steps of pan and tilt drag, along with locks for each axis, let you easily customize the response of the Video 18 S2 to fit your application, be it studio or field production.

The top of the Video 18 S2 head is dominated by a sliding balance platform which accepts Sachtler's convenient Touch & Go quick release camera plate. Once the plate is secured, the entire platform adjusts to balance your camera setup. At the front of the platform, parking spaces for 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16, and registration pin screws are available for when they are not being used. Both sides of the head feature rosette mounts for pan handles. A right-side pan handle is included with the Video 18 S2. The base of the head terminates in a 100mm bowl mount for coupling with industry standard tripods, jibs, sliders, or other grip equipment that feature 100mm bowls.

flowtech 100 MS Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader & Rubber Feet

The Sachtler flowtech 100 MS Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader & Rubber Feet is a carbon fiber, lightweight tripod that can be set up and adjusted in no time at all, and can hold up to 66 lbs. When it comes time to adjust the tripod height, you no longer have to worry about stooping down to reach the locks - the novel flowtech design places the quick release locks at the top of the legs, allowing for quick and easy access. The three legs are able to be deployed simultaneously, making it easier and faster for them to find their individual levels when setting up on uneven ground.

The flowtech 100's versatile leg hinges adjust freely or can be locked at 20, 46, and 72° angles, providing a height range from 10" to 5' and reducing the need to carry a set of baby legs. Additional ergonomic features include a flatter leg design that's more comfortable when carrying on your shoulder, and magnetic locks that neatly snap the legs together for travel. Three handy 3/8"-16 threaded mounts can be used to attach a variety of accessories.

Weighing only nine pounds with its spreader and feet, the flowtech 100 can support a payload of up to 66 pounds and extends from a minimum height of 20" to a maximum height of 61" when using the included mid-level spreader. Each leg features a single clamping lever that quickly and easily locks and unlocks the three sections.

Designed with dual-spiked feet, this 100mm bowl tripod includes rubber feet that feature a quick release design for easy attaching and removal. A flowtech Carry Handle is included to enable carrying your flowtech system in one hand.

SpeedLevel Clamp for Sachtler 100mm Fluid Heads

The Sachtler SpeedLevel Clamp for Sachtler 100mm Fluid Heads is innovatively designed with squeeze handles that let you more accurately and easily level your fluid head. Instead of the traditional twisting and untwisting, the SpeedLevel Clamp loosens the head position when you squeeze the handles and sets the head in place the moment you release the squeeze.

The SpeedLevel Clamp is compatible with all Sachtler 100mm heads and supports a maximum weight of 55 lb. (Third-party heads may not be compatible because a Sachtler 10mm thread is required.)
