Sachtler Ace M Tripod System Overview
The Sachtler Ace M Fluid Head with 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod & Mid-Level Spreader is the perfect tripod system for videographers using HDSLR cameras and smaller camcorders. This lightweight system is ideal for documentaries, ENG, weddings, corporate videos and other projects with a smaller camera, providing broadcast-style performance with lightweight components. With its compact size and mid-level spreader, the Ace M is perfect for projects that involve multiple setup changes on unpredictable surfaces.
With a payload of up to 4 kg, the Ace M fluid head features five steps of counterbalance as well as a plate that features a 10.41 cm range of adjustment, so you can balance your small camera to a very precise degree. Designed by Sachtler engineers for the Ace fluid head system, the SA drag system enables smooth, precise panning and tilting via the head's pan bar, with three grades of drag in both the horizontal and vertical dimensions, plus the option of zero drag. The head's tilt range is +90° to -75°.
The tripod mounts the head via its 75mm bowl. With the Ace M head attached, the two-stage aluminium model reaches a maximum height of 168.91 cm for a comfortable working height for almost all users. Also included is a mid-level which adds to the stability of the system on any surface, indoors or out.
SA Drag for Perfect Performance
For the Ace fluid head system, Sachtler engineers developed a patented drag, SA (synchronized actuated) drag, which guarantees accuracy and repeatability at a remarkable price. With three vertical and three horizontal grades of drag, SA drag enables fine adjustments for precise panning and tilting. Damping can also be completely deactivated.
Weighing just 1.67 kg on its own, the Ace M head is composed of a glass fibre-reinforced composite material, which keeps the head especially light and offers a comfortable, non-slip surface feel. The head enables camera operators to work extremely intuitively and professionally - and with the system's lightweight and compact size, operators will want to take Ace on the go.
Familiar Sachtler Features
The Ace M head reflects Sachtler's 50 years of developing camera support products, which is evident in such practical features as the Ace M camera plate's parking position for spare camera screws and the long 10.41 cm sliding range. The plate comes with a 1/4"-20 screw and a video pin.
Broadcast Feel for Smaller Cameras
With its payload range of 0-4 kg, the Ace M fluid head and legs are ideal for smaller HD & HDV camcorders as well as HDSLR cameras. The five-step counterbalance makes it easy to achieve proper balance quickly.
