The Ace-M is ideally suited for JVC's GY-HM150U camcorder. With a payload range of 0 to 4 kilograms (0 to 8.8 lbs), a 5-step counterbalance and the new patented SA-drag™, the new Ace-M tripod system enables a genuine Sachtler broadcast feel.

Due to its lightweight and compact design it is the perfect companion for work on the go whether you are working on low-budget documentaries, electronic news-gathering (ENG), weddings events and training videos or a secondary unit.

The SA-drag™ system has three horizontal and three vertical steps. Sachtler uses three capsuled damping modules allowing you to choose a drag setting that suits any shooting situation — from a very tight control with lots of resistance to a very loose control with virtually no resistance at all. This technique gives, for the first time at this price point, a constant and repeatable drag that professionals need and have always relied on.

The 5-step counterbalance capability ensures easy balancing and optimum positioning of the camera.

  • New patented SA-drag™ mechanism (Synchronised Actuated Drag)
  • Long sliding range of camera plate
