You only get one shot
so make it count
With its payload range of 0 to 4 kilograms (0 to 8.8 lbs), Ace is the ideal camera support for smaller HDV camcorders and DSLR cameras. The 5-step counterbalance (+0) makes fast counterbalancing of the camera set-up easy. With 3 vertical and 3 horizontal grades of drag (+0), the new patented SA dragTM enables fine adjustment for precise panning and tilting. The new Sachtler Ace fluid head has a tilt range of +90° to -75°. For Ace, a glass fiber reinforced composite material was chosen, which makes the new 75mm fluid head especially light and offers a comfortable and non-slip surface feel.
Ace is delivered with the Ace plate. It comes with a 1/4” screw and pin. Spare camera screws (1/4” and 3/8”) are stored in the balance plate.

Sachtler Ace M
Ace is ideally suited for small HDV camcorders and video-enabled DSLR cameras. With a payload range of 0 to 4 kilograms (0 to 8.8 lbs), a 5-step counterbalance and the new patented SA-drag™, the new Ace tripod system enables a genuine Sachtler broadcast feel.
Due to its lightweight and compact design it is the perfect companion for work on the go whether you are working on low-budget documentaries, electronic news-gathering (ENG), weddings events and training videos or a secondary unit.
The new patented SA-drag™ system has three horizontal and three vertical steps. Ace uses three capsuled damping modules allowing you to choose a drag setting that suits any shooting situation - from a very tight control with lots of resistance to a very loose control with virtually no resistance at all. This technique gives, for the first time in this price segment, a constant and repeatable drag that professionals need and have always relied on, with Sachtlers’ broadcast and cine heads.
The 5-step counterbalance capability ensures easy balancing and optimum positioning of the camera – a true Sachtler!
