Sachtler Ace M GS (1002) With Ground Spreader
• Designed for low weight professional cameras
• Best-in-class drag performance
• Ergonomic and intuitive - designed for ease of use
• Best price to performance ratio in its class

Payload range of 0 to 4 kilograms (0 to 8.8 lbs), with a 5-step counterbalance and the new patented SA dragTM, the new Ace 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 new patented SA-dragTM system has three horizontal and three vertical steps. Ace 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 in this price segment, a constant and repeatable drag that professionals need and have always relied on, with Sachtlers’ broadcast and cine heads.

The 5-step counterbalance capability ensures easy balancing and optimum positioning of the camera – a true Sachtler!

namely 1001 and 1002 ( Mid and Ground spreader respectively ). Both are of the same price

Best for my DSLR
By Anthony on1 /2/2016

This is the best fit for my DSLR cameras Canon 5D MKII, I have now complete control of where I want the shooting angle to be, the smooth Pan- tilit and drag is what I like the most.

Value for Money

Confusion over the Range
By Murali on 28/12/2015

Many Thanks for provide me the link
My Friend  recommended to buy a Sachtle Ace, least I do not know there are several model available.
As I needed A smooth Fluid head tripod for less than 4 kg, thus I have selected  Ace 1002.

Great Product
By Bens on 7/12/2015

I have Bought the Sachtle L series, as the capacity is 6 kg as compared M series which was my original choice.
L series not only lighter but the reach is higher, Many thanks for the advice.

By Andy Hau on 2/12/2015

I have bought the Sachtler Ace from your store back in Nov 2011, however due to change of my cameras,
I would prefer to have Sachtler 6 or Sachtler Ace L series, Can I trade in my current Sachtler Ace Tripod ?

Please bring in your current Ace, and our people assess to it

By Yong on 1/12/2015

I have notice both Sachtler Ace and Sachtler FSB4, are having the same leg, except for the tripod head.
FSB4 tripod head is definitely better than Ace, except the price.

Great After Sales service
