Sachtler Cine 7+7 HD Overview
The Sachtler Cine 7+7 HD is a fluid head for film and video camcorders that features a 100mm ball for fast leveling without having to adjust the legs and supports up to 48 lbs. This head provides two support ranges, 4.4 to 33 pounds for shooting with small and compact sized cameras, and 20 to 48.5 pounds for shooting with a medium sized camera. The payload range is selected by using the payload boost button. The fluid head features 5.9″ of balance adjustment with the sliding balance plate, and it incorporates a sideload QR mechanism.
The head also features independent horizontal and vertical drag adjustment, with each axis having seven levels of drag, plus a zero setting for no drag. The fluid head also provides 16 counterbalance settings. The counterbalance and drag settings are stepped and not variable, which makes them accurate and repeatable. The built-in illuminated bubble level confirms that your fluid head is level, and features a replaceable battery.
- Sideload Clamp
- The sideload clamping system combines the features of a quick release plate and a sliding balance plate. This makes it easier to mount and dismount the camera from the tripod than with just a sliding baseplate system, while still being able to balance the camera on the head using the 5.9 inches of adjustment the sliding baseplate allows.
- A 16-Step counterbalance ensures accurate and fast balancing of many camera systems 4 to 48 lbs.
- Boost Button
- There is a payload high and low adjustment called the boost button. This boost will offer a top-heavy system a little extra control on radical pans and tilts.
- This head offers very specific levels of 7 horizontal and 7 vertical drag for silky smooth pans and tilts.
