Premiere fluid head maker Sachtler is looking for the oldest of its Video 18 fluid heads in use. Owners of Video 18s worldwide are invited to submit the serial number of their fluid head and a photo. The oldest Video 18 head still in-use will be exchanged for a new Video 18 S1 tripod system with Speed Lock CF. In addition all Video 18 owners who enter will be part of a drawing in which three additional Video 18 S1 tripod systems with the Speed Lock CF will be awarded.   Sachtler requests that owners worldwide send photos of their Video 18 being used in the field. The Video 18 has been setting the standard in ENG/EFP production since 1984.  Exceptionally robust the Video 18 works dependably in extreme temperatures ranging from -40° to +140° F (-40° to +60° C) and when shooting in unusual conditions.   Video 18 fluid head owners around the world are encouraged to participate. The company plans to post photos of the legacy Video 18 systems working in exotic and challenging locations.   The contest ends June 30.
