About Sachtler

Sachtler, founded 1958 by cameraman Wendelin Sachtler, is the worldwide market leader for professional camera support systems. A benchmark of the media production industry is starting to change the world of capturing the species BIRD.

ULTRA SMOOTH

You may know how tough it is to follow a flying bird in the far distance through a long lens. Getting a sharp still or even a video of those flying beauties is almost impossible. Sachtler is known for solving this issue through a super smooth pan and tilt operation of their unique fluid head technology. Film makers around the world trust in Sachtler for exactly this reason. The only difference? They shoot actors, sport stars or news.

PERFECT BALANCE

We use a minimum of 5 counterbalance steps for smaller loads and up to 24 counterbalance steps for the heaviest set-ups. This helps to bring your different camera-lens combinations in an ideal balance, to let the fluid head perform on its best. So no matter if you use a Canon EOS-1D C with a 300 or 1000 mm lenses, your set-up will be always perfectly balanced.


PROFESSIONAL QUALITY

For more than 50 years, camera operators worldwide have relied on the high quality of our products. True German engineering means you get robust, durable and intuitive gear - even in unusual filming conditions and extreme temperatures.
