Sachtler Unveils New Cine Series Fluid Heads

Sachtler has just announced a new series of fluid heads designed to meet content creators’ unique needs, whether they are operating as a one-man crew or part of a huge professional production.

The Cine Fluid Heads combine a self-proclaimed host of innovative features with reliable flexibility and smooth camera movement.

There are three models to choose from, the Cine 20, Cine 30, and Cine 50, each of which Sachtler proudly proclaims are the smallest and lightest in class.

Each model is specifically designed for the specific needs of content creators using camera setups ranging from mirrorless camera rigs, to fully fit-out cinema cameras with monitors and focusing systems.

The Sachtler Cine 20 offers a load capacity of 2-22 kg (up to 48.5 pounds) and fits in a 100mm bowl head. The Cine 20 can carry everything from a mirrorless camera fitted with a large lens, as well as additional accessories including a monitor recorder, V-mount batteries, and wireless transmitters.

The Cine 20 offers 16 Speed Balance Steps for counterbalance and 7 pan and tilt steps, with a 5.9″ Sliding Plate Range, support for Sideloading, and a pan bar rosette.

It also includes a telescopic pan handle and an illuminated bubble level. And while Sachtler recommends the Flowtech 100 carbon fiber tripod to round out the setup, any tripod with a 100mm bowl is supported.

Moving on to the Cine 30 and Cine 50, both these fluid heads can carry a useful load of up to 30 kg and 50 kg respectively, equating to up to 110 pounds.

This makes these two fluid heads ideal for heavier platforms including large-format cinema or broadcast-style cameras.

Both fluid heads offer 18 Speed Balance steps and both 7 and 9 Pan and Tilt steps respectively. Moreover, both heads offer side load support and a front pan bar rosette with a 5.9” sliding plate range and illuminated bubble level.
