Sachtler FSB 6 / 6T fluid head

Sensitive, fast and robust
Perfectly designed for all users of MiniDV and (H)DV cameras, Sachtler’s new fluid heads have payloads ranging from 0 to 2 kg / 0 to 4.4. lb (FSB 2) and 1 to 6 kg / 2.2 to 13.2 lb (FSB 6). The FSB 6 is the only in its class to feature Sachtler’s Snap & Go sideload mechanism which boasts an exceptionally large sliding range of 120 mm / 4.7“ and 10-step counterbalance. This ensures extremely fine and fast balancing. Alternatively, the head is also available with the classic Touch & Go camera plate. The smaller FSB 2 offers counterbalance settings of 1 and 0, while both fluid heads have three horizontal and three vertical grades of drag plus 0. No compromises have been made with regard to the damping, which is based on the same construction principles as the „large“ heads.

Sachtler’s new fluid heads FSB 2 and FSB 6 and the FSB CELL are all components of the SOOM modular construction system.
