SpeedBalance... With a payload range of 19.8 lbs, the DV6 SB offers high-precision and extremely fast counterbalance to digital camcorder operators.

The head is called SpeedBalance, because it features 10 step counterbalance, greatly reducing set-up time. In addition to finer counterbalance graduation, SpeedBalance heads also have an increased payload range, including a reduction in minimum payload.

This makes them ideal for lightweight camcorders such as those from the DVCAM, HDV and DV classes. The Fluid head DV 6 SB features 75 mm tripod fittings and is thus perfect for news gathering. Another feature of the fluid head is its self-illuminated Touch Bubbles that make balancing in poor light conditions even easier.

With all these new developments, Sachtler has continued to follow its secret of success step switching. It allows camera operators to optimally balance the fluid head and camera in no time at all. While stepless systems often require time-consuming adjustments by trial and error, graduated-step counterbalance gives you perfect set-ups on demand.

The DA 75 Long 1-Stage Tripod for DV Users. With its compact dimensions, this tripod is an indispensable companion. The proven Touch & Go system enables fast changeover, so camera operators can go from using the tripod to shooting from the shoulder within a matter of seconds. In combination with the DV 6 SB Fluid head this tripod system is ideal for MiniDV camcorders starting from around 1 kg / 2.2 lb.
