Sachtler has announced a new fluid head designed for HDSLR users. The Cine DSLR has a payload range of 2 to 11 lbs, a ten step counterbalance, and three vertical and horizontal grades of drag. All of these adjustments allow for professional smooth operation. Additionally, the Cine DSLR comes with a special camera plate, which has a bracket on it to prevent the camera from twisting. The Cine DSLR will be available in two different systems, one with floor spreaders and one with mid-level spreaders. Sachtler tripod heads are known for their smooth control and stability, which any HDSLR shooter could benefit from. The price has not yet been announced, but we’ll post as soon as it is.
