The Ace product line is ideally suited for small HDV camcorders and video-enabled DSLR cameras. As a beginner's system, the Ace M MS is perfectly adapted for operation with a payload of 0 - 4kg.
Besides a first-class price/performance ratio, this tripod system made of aluminum features a 5-step counterbalance, which ensures easy balancing and optimum positioning of the camera.
With a payload up to 8.8 lb, the Ace M fluid head features five steps of counterbalance as well as a plate that features a 4.1" 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 aluminum model reaches a maximum height of 66.5" 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.
