Sachtler Ace M

The beginner’s systems Ace M MS and Ace M GS are perfectly adapted for operation with a payload from 0-4 kilograms. Besides a first class price/performance ratio, the tripod systems made of aluminum feature a 5-step counterbalance, which ensures easy balancing and optimum positioning of the camera. For shooting on uneven ground, the Ace M and MS are equipped with a mid-level spreader. Due to its ground-level spreader the Ace M GS is perfectly suitable for operation on level ground.
