The new fluid heads feature SpeedLevel and SweepSwap technologies and can be mounted to Flowtech tripods with no bowl required.
Sachtler has introduced the Aktiv series of fluid heads: the Aktiv6, Aktiv8, Aktiv8T and Aktiv10.
The Aktiv6 and Aktiv8 are compatible with all main Sachtler 75mm tripods, with the Aktiv8T available in side load or Touch & Go camera-plate options. The Aktiv10 is a 100mm bowl head with side-load camera plate.
The new heads feature Sachtler’s SpeedLevel technology, which allows the user to quickly release, lock and level the head tightly; an illuminated PrismBubble that is visible from any height or angle; the ability to mount to Flowtech tripods with no bowl clamp required; and the SpeedSwap system, which facilitates quick swaps from a tripod to a slider.
The Sachtler Aktiv fluid head range is priced from $1,525 and can be preordered from Sachtler resellers as a head only or as part of a Flowtech system.
