Sachtler Cine 75 HD Fluid Head (150mm Ball Base)
Whether it's digital high-definition production or classical film, the Sachtler Cine 75 HD gives you the best of both worlds.
With an outstanding payload range of 9 to 165 pounds it's suitable for both types of production. The head features a payload boost button that allows you adjust the head for use with smaller/lighter cameras and larger/heavier cameras.
The Cine 75 HD features a 12-step counterbalance knob, and a half-step lever that provides you with 24 counterbalance settings. The head incorporates a Touch & Go quick release plate and a sliding camera platform with a range of up to 4.7", this allows you to safely balance the camera. The 150mm ball base allows you to quickly level the head without having to adjust the legs when used on tripod with a compatible bowl base. The head's ball base also incorporates a Flatbase/Mitchell base.
The Cine 75 HD fluid head also comes with a huge selection of accessories for the various cameras that can be used with the head. Interfaces for a frontbox and viewfinder extension are standard accessories.
Frictionless leak proof fluid damping with Nine levels of drag
A prerequisite for perfect pictures is a panning movement without jerks and vibrations. Sachtler's patented damping system takes everything is stride. The individual modules are frictionless and contain no hydraulic oil. This means they are permanently leak proof.
The damping action of heads is identical across both horizontal and vertical planes and offers you nine steps of drag, for smooth camerawork under the toughest of rough conditions. You can completely disengage the drag for fast panning without affecting the dynamic counterbalance system.
Touch & Go Quick Release / Automatic Locking System
Stop wasting time by fumbling around with clumsy attachments, or bother screwing the camera to head and then having to unscrew it again. With the Touch & Go system invented by Sachtler, the camera plate is secured to the camera, while the mating balance plate is mounted on the fluid head.
All you need to do is slip the camera into position, engage the mechanism, and the camera is locked firmly in place, when finished just disengage the latch and go. When you set up the camera for the next shot you still have all the original settings. Also features a safety lock lever that prevents inadvertent disengagement of the camera latch.
Sliding Camera Platform
The camera platform (top of the fluid head) incorporates the quick release mechanism and a sliding balance adjustment of 4.7".
24 Step dynamic counterbalancing system with Boost Button
Built with torsion springs the dynamic counterbalancing system compensates for torques as the camera tilts, preventing the camera from inadvertently tipping, and ensuring that it is positioned securely at any tilt angle.
Its 24-step counterbalance allows adjustments via dial, in 12 stages and fine tune by half step function, and can be activated and deactivated individually. Independent from the damping system, they work silently and without the need for maintenance.
Safe at any temperature
Pressure or temperature does not influence the damping system, it has an operating range from -40°F to +140°F, and works without friction. Shoot wherever you want, from torrid heat to cold climates.
