The Ace M fluid head features five steps of counterbalance and three steps of pan and tilt drag adjustment, plus a zero drag option for pan and tilt. Cameras are mounted using the slide-in balancing plate for quick locking for stable shots or quick access then you want to shoot handheld off the tripod. 

With a sliding range of 4.1", this head can be adapted to a variety of rig configurations and extra features include a detachable right-side pan bar and a bubble level to make sure those horizons are level. The Ace M also features an integrated flat head base, so it can be used when shooting with a slider.

This 75mm bowl-based combo has a 30.7 to 66.5" height range, and has an integrated mid-level spreader which aids in quickly setting the tripod up on level or uneven surfaces so you can get the shot as quickly as possible while keeping everything balanced, and more importantly stable. The tripods rubber feet at the base of the two-stage legs can be removed, exposing dual spikes for extra stability outdoors or shooting in wet conditions, also an added bonus when out in the field. When you have completed shooting for the day, you can quickly collapse the Ace M Black Edition to 33" and pack it into the included padded case, making this the perfect solution for independent filmmakers that are looking for a solid solution to hold their camera rigs and improve their cinematography.
