The Sachtler DV 12SB Fluid Head with a 100 mm bowl and integrated flat base fitting, and a load capacity of up to 14kg, is the choice for the professional videographer utilising heavy camcorders who demands the smoothest pans and tilts as well as rapid setup. It features a 12-step counterbalance system with a 70mm sliding plate for perfect balance, and 5 steps of drag plus zero in both axes for whip pans. The Touch & Go quick-release system makes mounting and takedown a nonissue: no fumbling, no struggling, no worries. For complete flexibility and ease of operation in unforgiving circumstances, the DV-12SB is a sound choice.
