ACE Fluid Head
With its payload range of 0 to 4 kilograms (0 to 8.8 lbs), Ace is the ideal camera support for smaller HDV camcorders and DSLR cameras. The 5-step counterbalance (+0) makes fast counterbalancing of the camera set-up easy. With 3 vertical and 3 horizontal grades of drag (+0), the new patented SA dragTM enables fine adjustment for precise panning and tilting. The new Sachtler Ace fluid head has a tilt range of +90° to -75°. For Ace, a glass fiber reinforced composite material was chosen, which makes the new 75mm fluid head especially light and offers a comfortable and non-slip surface feel.
Ace is delivered with the Ace plate. It comes with a 1/4” screw and pin. Spare camera screws (1/4” and 3/8”) are stored in the balance plate.

I've had my Ace for about four years. JUST after the 12 month warranty ran out the legs dropped off it. I had if fixed by CVP (paid by me) and it lasted a short while but the legs drop out of the plastic casing all the time......very embarrasing. The screw attachment on the head camera attachment about 2 years ago then decided to stick so I couldn't slide the camera onto it. Attempted a repair thanks to BBC engineering but I now carry a large Leatherman so I can hammer it until it gives in. Shame because there's nothing I can find to compare with the ACE payload and carry weight and price although I'd be happy to pay more for a lightweight, professional Tripod that worked.

I have had my ACE now for about 6 months and seemed like the perfect companion for my Panasonic AC-AG 160 Camera.The head is very fluid and is good to use, very impressed from a tripod at this price point. However just last week when out filming TWO of the lower legs decided to drop out! In closer inspection it looks like the glue used to hold the lower adjusters in place had given up, a wee bit of EPOXY resin later and all is well. Didn't expect this from a company like Sachtler though.I will be investing in a new set of sticks soon but in the meantime they are still holding up well.
