The Sachtler System 18/1863 includes the Video 18 Fluid head with Speed Balance, the ENG 2 carbon fiber double extension tripod with rubber feet, and the ENG 2 padded transport bag. The Video 18 fluid head has a temperature-independent, frictionless damping system with five levels of drag, thereby enabling operators to capture the most riveting scenes with the greatest of ease in any setting. The ENG 2CF two-stage tripod uses leg sections drawn out of one-piece carbon fiber material which makes it twist resistant and even lighter than Dural aluminum. It features a 100 mm bowl, tube diameter of 22 mm, and is fitted with fast-action leg locks. A mid-level spreader completes the package by ensuring absolute stability regardless of the working surface, and the ENG 2 padded bag comfortably and quickly contains the whole kit for transport.

Sachtler 1863 Features:

Frictionless fluid damping with five levels of drag
A prerequisite for perfect shots is pan and tilt movements without jerks or vibrations. Sachtlers patented damping system takes everything in stride. The individual modules are nearly frictionless and contain no hydraulic oil, thus, completely leak proof. The damping action is identical across both horizontal and vertical planes and offers five steps of drag for smooth moves in the most strenuous conditions. The operator may also completely disengage the drag for fast panning without affecting the dynamic counterbalance system.
Ten step dynamic counterbalancing system
Using torsion springs the dynamic counterbalancing system compensates for torque as the camera tilts, preventing it from inadvertently tipping, and ensuring that it is stable at any angle (freeing the operator to concentrate fully on camerawork). These springs may be adjusted individually, independent from the damping system, and work silently and without maintenance.
Sliding balance plate
The sliding balance plate with a 4.7" (120 mm) sliding range allows the operator to compensate precisely for a variety of configuration weights, ensuring perfect balance across the horizontal plane.
Locks
Vibration-less vertical and horizontal disc brakes for maximum safety in fast-paced reporting situations.
Bubble level
Built-in illuminated bubble for horizontal leveling uses a conventional battery and ensures easy leveling even under unfavorable lighting conditions.
Carbon fiber leg tubes
Vibration-absorbing composite construction with 22 mm (0.87") tube diameter- stronger and lighter than aluminum.
Fast-action leg locks
Rapid, secure cam-based system locks tripod legs in seconds.
