Sachtler Supports Cinema Camera with FSB 6 Fluid Head
A perfect match for the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera is the Sachtler FSB 6 Fluid Head, which provides Sachtler's well-known operational feel and familiar dependability for precise panning and tilting, and supports the 3.75lb camera well within its 2-13lb payload range
Blackmagic Designs created a huge buzz in the filmmaking industry with the introduction of its amazing Cinema Camera, providing a true feature film look and amazing dynamic range for beautiful images, delivered at an affordable price. But the new camera’s unique form factor requires a versatile fluid head system. A perfect match for the Cinema Camera is the Sachtler FSB 6 Fluid Head, which provides Sachtler’s well-known operational feel and familiar dependability for precise panning and tilting, with specifications to let the Black Magic camera’s user get the most out of his Cinema Camera.
Introduction of Black Magic Design’s Cinema Camera has spawned a large assortment of film-style camera and lens accessories. Camera users mounting a variety of lenses and accessories find themselves dealing with a wide payload range, from the bare-bones camera weight of 3.75 lbs (1.7kg) to over triple that. The FSB 6’s 2 - 13 lbs (1 to 6kg) payload range more than covers that span.
With its 5 inch built-in monitor on the back of the camera’s housing, many of the Cinema Camera’s users choose to operate using that screen in place of an external viewfinder. With little weight behind the camera’s tripod mounting tap, the FSB 6’s 4.7 inch (120mm) sliding plate range is essential to placing the camera, lens and accessory package squarely over the fluid head. The FSB 6’s 10 steps of counterbalance lets the user position the exact center of gravity over the head to keep the camera in place at any angle of tilt through the head’s entire +90°/-75° tilt range.
The FSB 6 also features three vertical and three horizontal grades of drag (+0), which provides Sachtler’s familiar pan and tilt feel and dependability.
