The Sachtler System 18 S1 SL MCF brings together the update of a classic fluid head with a solid, quick-action tripod to provide a professional level of support for today's news-gathering videographer. Whether you're shooting with a large ENG camcorder or the latest video DSLR, this system--which also includes mid-level spreaders, rubber feet, and a padded carry bag--will give you the quick, easy balance and flexible control you need.

Video 18 S1 Fluid Head

This relaunch of the legendary Video 18 head incorporates a wider payload range and a faster, simpler balancing system. The increased range means that even lightweight cameras--such as video DSLRs--can be used effectively, aided by a 16-step counterbalance system that allows for fine degrees of tuning. Like its predecessor, the Video 18 S1 can also easily handle heavier ENG camcorders, with a Boost Button included for sudden shifts in payload range. Other features include 7 levels of drag, a self-illuminating bubble level, a Touch and Go plate for speedy mounting and removal, and Sachtler's already proven Speedbalance technology.

Speed Lock CF Tripod

The Speed Lock CF is among the fastest two-stage tripods in the world. This extremely sturdy and twist-resistant carbon fiber tripod ensures that you're already shooting while everyone else is still setting up. Simply release the three easy-to-reach clamps and you're ready for action. The patented clamping system lets you adjust the tripod smoothly and safely, even with a camera mounted, while the carbon fiber construction ensures minimal load-free weight, increasing stability and twist resistance.

Mid-level Spreader, Rubber Feet, Carry Bag

The included mid-level spreader ensures absolute stability regardless of the working surface, while a set of rubber feet will protect floors from scratching. Topping off the system is the ENG/EFP padded bag, which comfortably and quickly contains the whole kit for efficient transport.
