Sachtler adds two more innovations to the artemis line of professional camera stabilization systems. The ACT 2 C Carbon Fiber Spring Arm Upgrade turns the artemis ACT 2 arm into the world's first carbon fiber spring arm. Plus the new ACT 2 Vest provides a host of advances to promote comfort, fit and versatility for camera stabilizing systems including the artemis EFP, EFP Pro SDI HD, Cine, and Cine HD.

Working in collaboration with racecar industry experts, Sachtler's engineers developed the Carbon Fiber Upgrade for the artemis ACT 2 standard aluminum spring arm. For this upgrade, the ACT 2 Arm's aluminum skeleton or ?bones? are replaced by new carbon fiber components. Carbon fiber's lightweight and outstanding torsional strength make the ACT 2 C Upgrade an asset for lengthy or fast-paced shoots.

Like the standard ACT 2 aluminium model, the upgrade retains the torsion-free design and features three, quick-to-change spring sets that handle payloads from 24-57 lbs/11-26 kg.

When combined with the new artemis ACT 2 Vest, operation of the camera stabilizing system is optimized. The ergonomically-designed ACT 2 Vest provides a brilliant new padding system to facilitate a comfortable fit for any body type. It features six moveable pads that may be custom positioned to prevent pressure points and promote even weight distribution. To enhance wearability, the pads are smartly designed with a soft wicking core and covered with top grade nylon Cordura so the operator stays dry throughout the shoot. Furthermore, ACT 2 pads are easy to remove for washing.

The Vest's new memory-fasteners located at the chest and hip straps enable quick & easy adjustment. During shooting breaks, the entire Vest can be loosened with a simple flick of the wrist, then easily refastened so that the belts return to their preset positions. Thanks to the memory-fasteners, the Act 2 Vest ?remembers? the fit and again suits the operator's body perfectly--no readjustments are necessary.

The new ACT 2 Vest and ACT 2 C Arm feature industry standard connections for compatibility with systems by Sachtler and other popular makes. The development, production and assembly of artemis products take place at the Sachtler headquarters in Munich, Germany. For more information about artemis systems, please visit: www.artemis-hd.com
