Our thoughts

I can only describe this as a miniature professional tripod. It’s very small and very light and if you take the head off you can put the legs in a suitcase, which is very handy if you’re travelling around. It’s reasonably stable considering its size and the fluid head is of a similar quality, albeit much smaller and lighter than the larger Sachtler heads. At a push you can get an FS7 or C300 on one, and it’s really good for DSLRs and small camcorders. If you’re rushing around the world with a small camera and want a proper fluid head, that with care can give you good results, then this is a good bet. It’s the best of the small tripods.

The FSB 6 is a multifunctional all-rounder that is a must have for anyone. Ideal for all set-ups of up to 8 kg at 55 mm cog, the reliable fluid head offers the Snap & Go side-loading mechanism. This enables set-ups to be mounted quickly and easily from the side of the tripod. The long displacement makes the positioning of the camera easy. Of course, the FSB 6 comes with Speedbalance technology, the established Sachtler damping, large load range, wide temperature range, illuminated spirit level and parking position for spare camera screws.
