Sachtler Ace:
Broadcast-Feeling für alle!
“Ace has all of the important
functions I need and I can afford it.”
Phil Arntz, DSLR filmmaker, London
SA-drag -Technologie
Sachtler’s renowned engineer, Leonhard Jaumann
developed a completely new damping technology,
the SA-drag™ (Synchronised Actuated Drag),
for the Ace fluid heads. Jaumann has been with
Sachtler since the company began and worked
on the first fluid heads. The SA-drag™ guarantees
constant and consistently repeatable drag using
an entirely new technology. When the camera
operator turns a pan or tilt drag knob to increase
or decrease the drag, precisely designed damping
segments inside the head engage or disengage to
provide the desired amount. This provides levels
of control, smoothness and reliability that you will
immediately feel and appreciate.

Top performance
Our entry level system with the fluid head Ace M is
ideally suited for small HDV camcorders and videoenabled DSLR cameras. With a payload range of 0 to 4
kg (0 to 8.8 lbs), a 5-step counterbalance and patented
SA-drag™, the Ace tripod system enables a genuine
Sachtler broadcast feel. With a payload of up to 6
kg (13.2 lbs), a 7-step counterbalance, and extremely
lightweight carbon-fiber tripods with high torsional
stiffness, the lightest of Sachtler’s tripod systems, the Ace
L tripod systems are multipurpose in their class.
• New patented SA-drag™ mechanism
• Long sliding range of camera plate
• Parking position for spare camera screws
• Glass fiber reinforced composite fluid head
• Scale on camera platform

Ease of use
We know there is no need for unnecessary complication. With both Ace sytems, you’ll find all of
the controls are located right where you need
them. This intuitive ergonomic design gives you
a decisive advantage when you are working. The
Sachtler Ace systems are lightweight and easy
to transport — thanks to the 75-mm heads, which
are made from fiberglass-reinforced composite.
In addition, the Ace L tripod systems with tripods
made of carbon fiber weigh as little as 4 kilograms
(8.8 lbs)! and can be used easily with sliders and

stops, pinion/friction wheel insertable on every gear box
side, changeable direction of rotation. The heightadjustable Ace Base Plate is the ideal platform for
15-mm rods. And there is more – the Ace

the field of DSLR filmmaking and is

Best value
Sachtler Ace fluid heads are sold as a complete
system so this means head, camera plate, legs and a
bag. The Ace range is therefore especially valuable for
anyone who wants to work with professional
equipment in the event, training and education,
corporate and government fields. The Ace Base Plate,
Ace Matte Box, and Ace Follow Focus create an
optimal combination when accessories are used
during shooting. But even when the budget is limited,
Ace can be an attractive alternative for documentaries
and the news field. With Ace, you no longer have to
accept lower levels of quality or performance. Ace
offers you a genuinely professional tripod and fluid
head feel at a price you can afford.
