Sachtler’s best-selling Video 18 fluid head is also our most popular rental tripod.
Featuring Sachtler’s SpeedBalance technology and able to take a payload of up to 18kg, this highly reliable fluid head is flexible in being great both on location and in the studio by combining rugged durability with lightweight materials.
A useful grip accessory for increasing the camera angle (tilt) and is commonly used in combination with a tripod head. Adjustable from 0° to 60° with secure locking at all angles and is compatible with cameras in almost any weight category. It can be used to achieve both a camera angle looking straight down as well as straight up at 90°
The base of the wedge plate is tapped with 3/8 threads for attachment to tripod heads & other rigging/grip. The sliding dovetail top plate enables further precise adjustments to be made to the camera position.
This is the perfect tripod for use with small camcorders such as the Sony PMW-300 and DSLR cameras like the Panasonic GH4.
This reliable grip kit is great for ENG shooting as the Touch-and-Go plate mount allows you to switch to handheld mode and back quickly and effortlessly, whilst the lightweight nature of the tripod allows extended periods of use.
Shoot Blue is an amazing rental company who's reliable and competitive in what they offer. I've had the opportunity to work with them on several different projects and their service has always been top. Highly recommended!
Shoot Blue have been my supplier of choice since 2007 ever since they were first recommended to me. Even if you're just doing a small shoot you're treated with the same care and attention as when you're on a big shoot and they go out of their way to accommodate your needs. Their prices are very competitive and the service is top notch and I always feel comfortable turning to them for advice and asking for recommendations on kit. When you hire their in house crew to work on your shoots the crew members are always really knowledgeable about the equipment and well trained, they are reliable and come to the set with a positive attitude and work hard to get the best results possible. I would highly recommend them to any independent filmmakers.
As a business owner, Director Shoot Blue has helped me build who I am as a story teller behind the camera. In my view the most important thing to my success as a story teller is knowing that I have a rental house you can always depend on. Shoot Blue has delivered outstanding service time after time again. Great job to the team :)
Shoot Blue are a fantastic rental firm with lovely staff and awesome equipment. They supported my recent commercial production very well indeed and I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend them to any size project. They deliverted and collected the kit as neccesary, modified the order when production requirements changed and generally helped the whole process go smoothly.
