This Sachtler ACE XL Fluid Head and Flowtech 75 Carbon Fiber Tripod System supports cameras and accessories weighing between 2 kg and 8 kg, and is well suited for DSLRs, Mirrorless, and small- to medium-sized camcorders. The head features a sliding balance plate with 4.1" of adjustment to balance your camera, 8-steps of counterbalance adjustment and 3-steps plus a zero setting of independent pan and tilt drag. The slide-in plate features 104 mm of travel, and this amount of adjustability combines to give you precise control of your camera on the head, and the ability to easily tune your set up on a shot-by-shot basis.
The included Flowtech legs are a lightweight set of tripod legs that can be used without a spreader. The legs support up to 20 kg, which means they can easily handle the weight of the ACE XL Fluid Head as well as your camera and accessories. The legs extend from approximately two feet to five feet, and are extremely resistant to twisting when you pan. Additionally, each leg features a single locking lever near the top of the leg that allows you to open the leg sections to raise or lower the leg. There is room for an optional mid-level spreader, and the legs feature a magnetic locking system strong enough to hold them together during transport, but weak enough to easily release the legs when you want to set them up. The included padded carry bag is for storing or transporting the head and legs.

Padded Bag for Flowtech 75
With dimensions of 930 x 201 x 232 mm, this padded Bag from Sachtler is designed specifically for carrying a Flowtech 75.
It is made with a high-density 900D fabric, which is both flame retardant and water-resistant to help ensure that your equipment stays safe. Additionally, layers of both open-cell and closed-cell foam are used in the construction to protect your gear against small bumps and shocks.
The bag opens via a full-length zipper found at the top, which allows for easy access while shooting. For transport, two straps on each side can be connected to an integrated hand grip for easy carrying. There are also small handles on each side of the bag where the zipper ends, and right next to them are D-rings that can be used to connect an optional shoulder strap. Finally, a clear plastic window on the outside allows you to insert a tag with your name or phone number for easy identification when travelling.
