The 24 step counterbalance which can be adjusted in 12 stages with the well known Sachtler dial. Fine-tuning is achieved via a half step lever. The Video 75 Plus EFP normally supports up to 165 pounds with a camera center of gravity (C.O.G.)of six inches above the camera platform, however using the boost button allows the fluid head to asupport up to 185.4 pounds at C.O.G. of six inches. For even more precise adjustment the balance plate has a sliding range of up to 120mm / 4.7", and up to 145mm / 5.7" for the studio version. This allows you to safely balance the camera at any tilt angle.
The Video 75 Plus EFP fluid head has a modular design, allowing you to change it for different applications. Various configuration options are available like; 150mm Ball Base with the Touch & Go quick release system and camera plate 35 wedge or Flat Base with the V-shaped wedge plate, or you can even mount it on a Mitchell Mount base.
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 Balance Plate
The sliding camera mount and plate with a 4.7-inch (150mm Ball Base) or 5.7-inch (Flatbase) sliding range, allows you to compensate precisely for a variety of configuration weights. Ensuring perfect balance across the horizontal plane. Most importantly, once adjusted, the settings cannot be lost.
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. Freeing you to concentrate fully on your camerawork.
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.
The Boost feature allows you to increase the supported maximum payload the head can support from 75kg to 84.1 kg.
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.
