The famous most affordable Sachtler tripod gets a bigger brother.

What is this, a second Sachtler Ace?
Indeed, this is an upgrade version for those who like the affordability of the first Sachtler Ace, but require some more features.

Basically the advantages of the Ace L over the normal Ace (Ace M) are the following:
– 6kg (13.2 lbs) payload capacity
– illuminated bubble
– much lighter carbon fibre legs
– you can get photo style legs for even more versatility
– 7 instead of 5 counter balance steps

When will the XL version come?
For those who need even more payload capacity I can only recommend the bigger Sachtler FSB 8 with the cool speedlock feet, but then that’s a different pricerange alltogether (LINK). Let’s see if there’ll be an XL Ace anytime into the future.

Here’s a nice demo by my office colleague Nino Leitner:
