The Sachtler 3006 Cine 30 HD Fluid Head is a fluid head with a 150mm half ball with integrated flat base that allows you to use this head with a tripod with either a 150mm bowl base or flat base. It features a side-load sliding camera plate mechanism. Unlike traditional sliding baseplates that require you to slide the camerqa plate into the head, the side load mechanism allows you to snap the camera into the head, and still slide the plate foward and back to adjust the balance of the camera on the head. This is especially useful when the camera is weighed down with accessories. It is compatible with Arri and OConnor camera plates, and features a fine adjustment for a tight, secure fit.

The head features two payload ranges, from 3 to 29.9 kg, and 7.9 to 35 kg selectable. The head features 18 steps of counterbalance, these are selectable via the 9-step setting dial, with the half step lever providing 9 additional steps of counterbalance. Pan and Tilt drag is governed by a similar 7-step (plus zero) indexed selector system in conjunction with Sachtler's patented leak-proof frictionless cartridges. A tilt safety lock guarantees the integrity of the payload until it is secured, and disk brakes ensure reliable pan and tilt fixing during operation with a quick flip of a short-throw lever.
