Able to handle DSLR setups weighing four pounds up to ENG and digital cinema cameras weighing 40 pounds, the Sachtler Video 18 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 to fit your application, be it studio or field production.
The top of the Video 18 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. Both sides of the head feature rosette mounts for pan handles. 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.
