Like other members of Sachtler's DV family of fluid heads, this new head offers the SpeedBalance feature that greatly reduces setup time due to its 12 steps of counterbalance. In addition to finer counterbalance graduation, SpeedBalance expands the payload range, including a reduction in minimum payload, so the DV 10 SB ideal for lightweight camcorders such as those in the DVCAM, HDV and DV classes.
The DV 10 SB also features Sachtler's Touch & Go® Plate DV for quick camera mounting and a wider sliding range, a self-illuminating Touch Bubble, and the ability to operate in diverse climates, from -40 to +140°F (-40° to +60° C). The head weights 5.7 lbs. (2.6kg), and is available as a system with any of Sachtler's 100mm bowl mount tripods.
