The Sachtler 0742 FSB-8T Tripod System with DA 75L Tripod is ideally suited for HDV camcorders and Mini-DV cameras. It has a payload of up to 20 lbs and comes equipped with Sachtler’s damping technology, which allows increased levels of control, smoothness, and reliability when tilting and panning due to high-quality damping segments inside the head. There are five grades of drag in both the horizontal and vertical dimensions, plus the option of zero drag. The middle-level spreader provides extra support and the dural aluminum legs are strong and travel well. Sachtler’s Touch & Go system enables fast changeover from tripod shooting to shoulder shooting.
