Ace Support

Designed to complement a host of pro-video equipment, Sachtler‚Äôs innovative accessories and camera support systems bring an added element of robustness and reliability to any shoot… find out how.

Sachtler has had an amazing year so far, launching a number of new and re-designed products. NAB proved to be the ideal place to show these off to audiences for the first time and the feedback we received on these new additions was very positive. The beauty of a show like NAB is that it enables customers to see, try out and talk about the new developments with our knowledgeable team members.


The ENG 75/2 D HD aluminium tripod was a much talked about product this year. The tripod has been designed to support precise camera operation across a wide payload up to 35kg / 77.2lbs, with robustness and durability being its two distinguishing features. It weighs just 3.1kg / 6.8lbs and is extremely easy to use and quick to set up which is vital in ENG environments.


The Ace Accessories range, which includes the Ace Base Plate, Ace Follow Focus and Ace Matte Box, also wowed visitors, as well as beta user Paul Cook. Not only do the accessories add functionality and efficiency to shoots, but they are of the same excellent quality as expected from Sachtler at an affordable price. They can be purchased individually, or as a set, and are compatible with other Vitec Videocom brand’s products, such as Anton/Bauer batteries (mounted on the base plate rods) and Litepanels LEDs like the Croma compact which can be attached to the matte box.

The SPEEDLEVEL Clamp changes the way videographers approach the head levelling process – making it simpler and quicker, both great advantages when shooting on-the-go. The innovative new bowl clamp is the perfect partner for Sachtler’s 100mm fluid head and really brings an added level of performance to videographers.

Another highlight at the show was the Ace L 75mm tripod head that has been redesigned to be compatible with all types of sliders, therefore delivering even more functionality to users. The Ace L can be quickly and easily converted to a flat base by removing a bottom screw and is extremely versatile with a payload range of up to 6kg. The redevelopment of the fluid head was as a direct result of customer feedback, and was favourably received.

We have been supporting videographers for over 50 years with premium quality products, always developed with our customers in mind and often as a direct result of feedback detailing how we can help make their professional lives easier. If you have a Sachtler story to tell – how you’ve used our products or how they’ve helped your career – please get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you.
