SKU: S20 Categories: , , , ,


Working in the field calls for gear that is durable enough to go where you need it to, and versatile enough to do what you need it to. The Sachtler 20 (Video 20 S1) introduces an even wider payload range and an innovative, Speedbalance system for fast weight compensation. The wider range enables lightweight DSLR cameras to be used but it can also handle heavier ENG and EFP camcorders; switching between these payloads is made easy with the intuitive Boost Button.

EFP and ENG TV crews will love the excellent seven level drag properties, the Touch & Go function for speedy mounting and removal, robust temperature resistance, parking positions for spare camera screws and the self-illuminating bubble level. The Sachtler Video 20 S1 is designed to work as fast as you do.
