Sachtler Releases 'Ace Accessories'

News Image
Sachtler has released a new range of camera support gear to complement the Ace product range. 'Ace Accessories' include the Ace Base Plate, Ace Follow Focus and Ace Matte Box.

The height adjustable base plate provides the platform for the other two accessories to be attached to a tripod using industry-standard 15mm rods. The Ace Follow Focus enables camera operators to manipulate the focus point of photo or cine lenses without needing to touch the lens barrel directly. The follow focus operates backlash free. Operators can change the direction of the drive gear mechanism, as well as set the hard stops – merely by pressing one or two buttons.
The Ace Matte Box can be used to minimise unwanted lens flare and provides housing for up to two standard-sized filters for the 4x4 and 4x4.56 variants. It supports a range of DSLR and professional video cameras, such as the Canon 5D. It features an adjustable top and side flags, two filter stages (one rotating), four filter frames, two different sized donuts, one gear wheel and a friction drive wheel, as well as a rear clamping interface.
"The new rig features the same robustness and reliability that customers expect from Sachtler products and has been designed drawing on the experience held within Vitec Videocom. The range specifically addresses the gap that exists in the market for support gear that is both high quality and economical. I am confident in saying it will be the best value for money package in the industry at the moment," says Tobias Keuthen, global brand manager, Sachtler.
