The big fluid head swap


As part of a global competition, Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, is looking for the oldest head from its top-selling model, the Video 18 fluid head, as well as the most exciting environment in which it has been used.

The oldest head which is still in use will be exchanged for a new Video 18 S1 tripod system with the Speed Lock CF. In addition, Sachtler is inviting all Video 18 users to submit photos of their shoots.

Exceptionally robust, the Video 18, which has been in the market since 1984, works dependably in extreme temperatures ranging from -40° to +60° C (-40° to +140° F) and when filming under unusual shooting conditions.

All photos will be entered in a draw in which three Sachtler Video 18 S1 tripod systems with the Speed Lock CF will be raffled off.

The closing date for the compeition is 30 June.
