The Ace M System Black Edition from Sachtler combines the Ace M fluid head with 75mm bowl, a two-stage aluminum tripod, and a mid-level spreader. Designed for digital cine-style cameras, the Ace M Black Edition supports rigs weighing up to 8.8 pounds. This system is suitable for larger DSLR and mirrorless cameras, as well as pro-style cine cameras.
The Ace M fluid head features five steps of counterbalance and three steps of pan and tilt drag adjustment, plus a zero drag option for pan and tilt. Cameras are mounted using the slide-in balancing plate. With a sliding range of 4.1″, this head can adapt to a variety of rig configurations. Additional features include a detachable right-side pan bar and a bubble level. With an integrated flat head base, the Ace M can be used when shooting with a slider.
This 75mm bowl-based combo has a 30.7 to 66.5″ height range, and its integrated mid-level spreader aids in quickly setting the tripod up on level or uneven surfaces. The rubber feet at the base of the two-stage legs can be removed, exposing dual spikes for extra stability outdoors. When you’ve completed shooting, quickly collapse the Ace M Black Edition to 33″ and pack it into the included padded case.
