Sachtler Adds To ACE XL Range

News Image
Sachtler has introduced two new aluminium tripod systems to its ACE XL range; the ACE XL GS AL and ACE XL MS AL, which both come equipped with the new ACE XL 75mm fluid head.

The ACE XL GS AL (with a ground spreader) and ACE XL MS AL (with a mid-level spreader) are suitable for use with DLSR cameras and the latest cine-style cameras, such as Blackmagic Design's URSA Mini Pro, Canon's EOS C200 and EOS C300 Mark II, Panasonic's LUMIX GH5, and Sony's PXW-FS7. The 75mm fluid head supports an extended payload range of 2 to 8kg (up to 17.6lbs), allowing it to support a broader range of configurations; whether a lightweight, video-enabled DSLR camera to a heavier rig with camera accessories or an HDV camcorder.

Both tripod systems offer eight counterbalance steps for camera balancing, and the ACE XL's patented SA drag™ (synchronised actuated drag) damping provides dependability for accurate panning and tilting. The 104mm (4.1 inch) sliding range of the ACE camera plate allows for quick camera setup, and clearly marked counterbalance settings aid in setting repeatable moves and provide a tilt range of +90 degrees to -75 degrees.

In addition, the ACE XL GS AL and ACE XL MS AL can operate in a broad temperature range, from -30 C/-22 F to 60 C/140 F. The aluminium ACE XL models weigh only a fraction more than their carbon-fibre counterparts, at 4.5kg/9.9lbs for the ACE XL MS XL and 4.1kg/9lbs for the ACE XL GS AL. The ACE XL GS AL with ground spreader provides a height range of 56 to 173cm (22 to 68 inches), with the ACE XL MS AL offering a height range of 79 to 170cms (31 to 67 inches) with mid-level spreaders.

Both tripod systems include Sachtler rubber feet and come with a padded bag featuring grips and a carrying strap.

"Camera operators would be hard pressed to find a more cost-effective professional tripod system that can support an 8-kilogram payload," said Tobias Keuthen, Director of Global Product Marketing Management, Vitec Group. "Not only are our new ACE XL GS AL and ACE XL MS AL among the lightest-weight tripod systems on the market, but they offer everything that's made Sachtler the industry standard for professional lightweight camera supports – completely jerk-free camera movements and maximum stability."

The ACE XL GS AL and ACE XL MS AL are available from today, 16 October.
