The Sachtler System 18/1864 includes the Video 18 Fluid head with Speed Balance, the Speed Lock carbon fiber double extension tripod, and the ENG 2 padded transport bag; it supports up to 40 lb (18 kg). The Video 18 fluid head has a temperature-independent frictionless damping system with five levels of drag, enabling operators to capture the most riveting scenes with the greatest of ease in any setting. The Speed Lock two-stage tripod uses leg sections drawn out of one-piece carbon fiber material, features a 100 mm bowl, and is fitted with fast-action leg locks. The ENG 2 padded bag completes the package by safely and comfortably enclosing the whole kit for transport.

Frictionless fluid damping with five levels of drag
A prerequisite for perfect shots is pan and tilt movements without jerks or vibrations. Sachtler's 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.
Carbon fiber leg tubes
Lighter and stronger than Dural aluminum, carbon fiber composite materials also have the useful characteristic of absorbing vibration.
