Sachtler, a Vitec Group brand, introduces the Cine 7+7 HD fluid head. This 100mm system offers a host of cine-style features including a front pan bar. With a generous payload range of 4.4 to 48.5 pounds (2-22kg) the new head aptly supports a variety of packages from HDV camcorders to full-sized cameras loaded with accessories. Yet, at just 7.3 lbs (3.3kg), the location-ready Cine 7+7 HD is one of the lightest weight heads in its class.
The Cine 7+7 HD fluid head is well-suited for a variety of HDV, HD and film productions. Thanks to a 16-step counterbalance and reliable Sachtler multiple contact switching, camera balancing is quick and safe. Additionally, the payload can be switched between “High and Low” with the Boost Button. Seven horizontal and seven vertical adjustable levels of drag (plus 0) ensure jolt-free pans and tilts. Plus the 7+7 HD offers an extensive temperature range from -40° to +140°F (-40° to +60°C), making it ready for use in extreme climatic zones, from the Antarctic to the Sahara.
According to Robert Zierer, Product Manager for Sachtler “The lightweight Cine 7+7 HD offers Sachtler-quality in the 100mm size. Thus, it is an attractive alternative to 150mm heads when using smaller film and HD cameras.”
The Cine 7+7 HD is available in five complete systems when matched with different types of tripods. For further information, please go to www.sachtler.us or contact: Sachtler, 709 Executive Blvd., Valley College, NY 10989, Phone: 845-268-0100, Fax: 845-268-0113, Email: [email protected]
