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.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
