Sachtler FSB CELL Now Available
CELL by Sachtler, a Vitec Group brand, is now shipping. Last year the battery
concept for MiniDV and HDV cameras was presented for the first time and has
been subsequently optimised following relevant tests by product developers and
CELL’s underside is fashioned like a camera plate and can be fastened perfectly
onto Sachtler’s award winning FSB fluid heads, ensuring secure locking and optimised
handling features for the cameraman through the battery’s attached weight (1.43
lbs / 0.65kg). By mounting the battery directly onto the fluid head the FSB
CELL’s weight increases stability without adversely influencing the balancing
of the camera, ensuring steady and smooth pan & tilt movement.
CELL is renowned for its large capacity. Depending on the type of camera, an
operating time of up to eight hours is guaranteed. Furthermore, additional
equipment, like the Reporter 8LED, the first LED on-camera light by Sachtler,
can be used.
corresponding adapter cable the battery can also be used to power cameras from
Sony, Canon and Panasonic. Another advantage of the FSB CELL is the extended
sliding range of 8.8 in. (225mm), resulting in maximum flexibility for the use
of accessories. In combination with the FSB CELL the Sachtler fluid heads FSB 2
and FSB 6 make the ideal support package.
