FotoCrane 2 dual arm 8 foot variable length camera jib for cameras up to 12lbs.
The FotoCrane2 was created as a result of that customer feedback requesting a dual arm lightweight crane able to support a wide variety of DSLR and modern high performance cameras such as the new 4:3 systems as well as the exciting BlackMagic Cinema Cameras and be very mobile.
Telescopic Aluminum Tubes
The FotoCrane2 uses a three-part telescoping aluminum tube system. Both the weight bar section and the camera section telescope in and out of the chassis section allowing variable lengths from 46 inches to 8 feet, so it can meet a wide range of applications inside and out. The weight bar can be adjusted allowing for easy and quick balancing and setup.
Small and Easy to Transport
The FotoCrane2 weighs less than 11 lbs. (5 kg), making it easy to transport. With a retracted size of only 42 inches it’s also, easy to store and can fit behind almost anything, so it does not take up a lot of room when you are transporting or storing.
Integrated Pan & Tilt
Cameras can be mounted directly on the camera bracket via a slot for quick release, or via a wide variety of other mounts. The FotoCrane 2 includes our cable operated Panning systems, so it both pans and tilts remotely or automatically. You can add our ProLine Intelligent Motion Control head or any other small motorized pan tilt heads are supported as well as our 501 release plate systems, allowing you to quick release using your 501 sliding plate.
Manual or Static Tilting
You can lock the tilt in any position, so that it stays where you set it in relation to the movement of the boom, or you can manually tilt the camera benefiting from the drag of your fluid head causing the camera to tilt forward or back. You can even tilt while booming and you can do it very smoothly because when you tilt the handle you actually tilt the tripod head, so if you like tilting with lots of drag or just a little, you can easily select the drag at your leisure, meeting any shooting requirement.
The crane can be mounted on virtually any medium or heavy-duty video tripod. Including small Benro KH25 with go pros and smart phones, and Manfrotto 500 series including 501, 502 and 503 systems using cameras up to about 12 lbs. They also support - with small cameras - other lightweight, affordable tripods, making the whole system considerably more affordable than some of the other heavier units available.
