Bill Fenster chooses the Sachtler Ace M for political documentary Posted: 30/10/2013
Bill Fenster chooses the Sachtler Ace M for political documentary
Documentarian Bill Fenster based in Phoenix, Arizona has relied on Sachtler fluid heads and tripods throughout his career. Sachtler is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. Therefore, when he first put a Sachtler Ace M to work in the summer of 2013, he was more than familiar with Sachtlers signature operational feel that the new, small tripod system would have to live up to. It was quite a challenge, keeping the quality of Sachtler with the much miniaturized size, he said. You wouldnt believe this thing it has Sachtlers immaculate movement, as all Sachtler tripods do. But this thing, you can practically put it in your back pocket.

Sachtlers Ace M Provides Fluid Movement for Surf Documentary Posted: 02/05/2013
Sachtlers Ace M Provides Fluid Movement for Surf Documentary
Filmmaker Kellen Keene is dedicated to documenting artistic endeavors through his visuals. Recently, he was inspired to go behind-the-scenes with surfer and photographer Chris Burkard to show what it is like to be a surf photographer and to showcase how some of the images Burkard shoots are made. Keene knew every shot had to be in-the-moment, so he wanted a shooting package that could keep up with the quixotic personality of the surf. Thats why we shot most of the project on the Canon 5D Mark II and Nikon d800s. We also used the new GoPro 3. We had multiple water housings, stabilization gear and various Canon L-series and Nikon glass. For support, my choice was Sachtlers Ace M. Sachtler is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

Captivating Witnesses: John Rose and Sachtler Ace M
That tingling in their stomach is a thousand butterflies. They are waiting to be freed by those magic words and to fly into the sky. It's not about "I love you". Much more magical are the words: "I do!" A vow seals the marriage, and a video captures this unique day: It gives the couple memories. This is exactly what fascinates wedding and event videographer John Rose: "Every individual event is fantastic. People spend months or even years planning this day." With the Ace M tripod system by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, Rose records the wedding butterflies that always accompany the couple.

Sachtler Ace M accumulates frequent-flyer miles with Jonah Kessel

In one moment, the world smells like fresh croissants and full-bodied red wine; chansons accompany a touch of lavender on the streets. Around every corner, one can breathe in the aroma of freshly brewed espresso and pause to hear the moving sounds of accordion music in the artful cities and picturesque landscapes. Faraway hoof beats invite you to continue the journey on the tracks of Genghis Khan the climate gets rougher, agricultural crop lands are spread across the land, a yak eats from the scant grass.

On the go with the Sachtler Ace in Sierra Leone

When Sierra Leone won independence from Great Britain in 1961, the country was seen as the "Athens of West Africa". Sierra Leone was famous for its high level of education. Now, it is among the poorest countries of the world and ranks near the bottom of the Human Development Index 2011. Since 2002, when the civil war came to an end after ten years, the country has worked to rebuild itself.

Sachtler expands Ace Product Line with Ace L

 

Sachtler, part of Vitec Videcom, a Vitec Group company, will expand the Ace product line with the new 75mm Ace L fluid head at IBC2012.  The new fluid head will be available with a choice of three different carbon-fiber tripods. In comparison to the popular Ace M, Ace L has an extended payload range of zero to six kilograms (0 to 13 lbs). This makes the new fluid head extremely versatile: whether filming with a lightweight video-enabled DSLR camera, a heavier rig with camera accessories, or a HDV camcorder. Seven steps make counterbalancing comfortable and quick. The Ace L also features the patented SA dragTM (Synchronised Actuated Drag) damping with three vertical and three horizontal grades of drag (+0), which provides an authentic broadcast feel and familiar dependability for precise panning and tilting. Popular Sachtler features, such as the illuminated bubble level, round out the new Ace L fluid head.
