Details of where you have found the cheaper item.
With the Studio 9+9, Sachtler’s unique, patented damping system has been significantly extended. As the name indicates, there are nine levels of extra-powerful drag, ensuring perfect counterbalance in 18 steps. Levels 2 to 7 are fairly fine, while the jump from levels 7 to 9 is much greater.
The fluid head also boasts a sliding plate, which has an integrated spindle drive. Centering the camera weight is now fast and easy – just slide the plate quickly into place, and fine tune with the spindle drive if required. The counterbalance system combines the renowned Sachtler system with a dial knob system, compensating perfectly for any load up to 55 kg / 121 lb.
In addition, the Studio 9+9 has a viewfinder extension bracket and front box connections as standard features.

Functional and easy to operate
Sachtler's fluid heads offer 100 percent reliability. The patented damping system excels even when you and your equipment are challenged by the most adverse shooting conditions imaginable. Extreme temperatures have absolutely no effect on these fluid heads. They provide frictionless operation, are free of hydraulic oil and are completely enclosed in their own capsule against any external influence. A special feature of the heads is their ease of operation. Instead of time consuming adjustment and re-adjustment in search of the perfect balance, Sachtler's fluid heads offer finely-tuned counterbalance for optimized settings.
A key reason why Sachtler fluid heads function so reliably is their stability. All components co-operate in a friction free environment, a key consideration for users who want equipment that functions tirelessly for years to come. In addition, the modern, lightweight materials we use help you limit the stress that unnecessary weight can have on your equipment, especially during long shoots.
The secret behind the payload
The center of gravity height (C.O.G.) of the camera mounted ion a fluid head is decisive in determining the head's payload. The C.O.G. describes the distance between the camera or camcorder's center of gravity and the top edge of the fluid head being used. The shorter the distance, the greater the maximum camera weight. The C.O.G. tables shown in the images section show how the payload of a head changes according to the camera's center of gravity height.
The meticulous quality that is a feature of Sachtler's products is due in part to their close working relationship with the film and television professionals. The regular feedback sent in from the field provides Sachtler's engineers with the constant incentive to redesign even our their most proven products. The result is solid, innovative and extremely reliable products with a longer than usual life span.
From featherweight to heavyweight
Sachtler offers the ideal tripod for every camera and camcorder. Whether your equipment weighs just a few hundred grams, like a digital (mini) DV camcorder commonly used in day-to-day news gathering, or over 50Kg / 110 lb, like many film and studio cameras loaded with multiple accessories and high performance optical systems, Sachtler has the right tripod for you.
Systems designed to meet your needs
A fluid head can only be fully effective with the right pedestal or tripod. Sachtler offers a wide range of camera support system packages that are designed to meet your demands. The systems let operators choose between differently configured tripods with spreaders or mid level spreaders for example. In most cases, a padded bag or cover is included in the package. Users can also customize and extend their own systems with optional accessories, such as additional pan bars or adapters.
The film makers' partner
Sachtler is a sustaining member or many different organisations and institutions that represent and unite camera operators, film makers and broadcast technology. Membership in the German Society of Cinematographers (bvk), has put Sachtler into direct contact with all well known camera operators in the German speaking world. Sachtler's international service and dealer network puts them into direct contact with camera operators worldwide. They also exchange experience with many of the other manufacturers of broadcast equipment in the International Association of Broadcast Manufacturers (IABM), where questions concerning standardisation, current technical trends and developments are discussed.
Recommended for high definition (HD)
All Sachtler fluid heads are ideal for use with HD cameras. Some heads, such as the Cine 75 HD or Cine 30 HD, are particularly user friendly for classical film camera operators, who find all the operating controls in their usual place. Of course, those who shoot with cinematography camcorders (e.g. Varicam) also want to take advantage of features such as viewfinder extension or front box. Excellent solutions for users of small and lightweight HDV camcorders, such as the new SpeedBalance head DV 6 SB are also available.
Thanks to the worldwide distribution of Sachtler products, they also offer a widespread service net. Every authorised dealer is able to carry out competent repairs or exchange parts. And in acute situations, Sachtler even provides replacement heads or tripods.
Every Sachtler product comes with a comprehensive guarantee. Through quality testing during and after production to ensure problem-free, reliable operation over a long life span.
