The Sachtler ACE 1001 M MS Fluid Head with 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod & Mid-Level Spreader is a full tripod system for videographers. Whether you're doing documentaries, ENG, weddings, corporate videos, or any other type of project with a smaller camera, the Ace M system matches your needs, enabling broadcast-style performance with lightweight components. With its lightweight, compact size, and mid-level spreader, this system is perfect for projects that involve multiple setup changes on unpredictable surfaces.


With a payload of up to 4kgs, the Ace M fluid head features five steps of counterbalance as well as a plate that features a 4.1" range of adjustment, so you can balance your small camera to a very precise degree. Designed by Sachtler engineers for the Ace fluid head system, the SA drag system enables smooth, precise panning and tilting via the head's pan bar, with three grades of drag in both the horizontal and vertical dimensions, plus the option of zero drag. The head's tilt range is +90° to -75°. The tripod mounts the head via its 75mm bowl. With the Ace M head attached, the two-stage aluminium model reaches a maximum height of 169cm for a comfortable working height for almost all users. Also included is a mid-level which adds to the stability of the system on any surface, indoors or out.


SA Drag for Perfect Performance
For the Ace fluid head system, Sachtler engineers developed a patented drag, SA (synchronized actuated) drag, which guarantees accuracy and repeatability at a remarkable price. With three vertical and three horizontal grades of drag, SA drag enables fine adjustments for precise panning and tilting. Damping can also be completely deactivated


Lightweight Material
Weighing just 4.4kgs on its own, the Ace M head is composed of a glass fibre-reinforced composite material, which keeps the head especially light and offers a comfortable, non-slip surface feel. The head enables camera operators to work extremely intuitively and professionally – and with the system's lightweight and compact size, operators will want to take Ace on the go


Familiar Sachtler Features
The Ace M head reflects Sachtler's 50 years of developing camera support products, which is evident in such practical features as the Ace M camera plate's parking position for spare camera screws and the long 4.1" sliding range. The plate comes with a 1/4"-20 screw and a video pin


Broadcast Feel for Smaller Cameras
With its payload range of 0-4kgs, the Ace M fluid head and legs are ideal for smaller cameras. The five-step counterbalance makes it easy to achieve proper balance quickly
