This kit includes a dual arm telescopic jib arm featuring not only boom and swing, but also includes mechanical tilt and Pan. Thats right you get all the axis' and easy control of them. This kit includes a padded carry backpack for hands free travel. Finally we cap the whole thing off by adding a 3 stage Aluminum tripod, a 501 compatible fluid head, mid level spreader, 501 release plate and a padded carry bag.
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 111cm (46 inches) to 246cm (8 feet) so it can meet a wide range of applications. The weight bar can be adjusted allowing for easy and quick balancing and setup.
Small and Easy to Transport
The FotoCrane2 weighs less than 5 kilos, making it easy to transport. With a retracted size of only 111 centimeters 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 CC501 is a Manfotto 501 compatible tripod head mounted on a three stage aluminum tripod base with midlevel spreader and spiked and rubber mounted feet. This tripod is compatible with any of our Single arm CobraCrane systems, lighter weight dual arm systems and of course our BackPacker systems. This tripod features an extra long panhandle that can mount on either side of the head providing tons of extra leverage and distance allowing for super slow, fluid pans and tilts. Both pan and tilt are fully adjustable by a dampening know making adjusting on the fly easier and secure.
Padded carry bags and weight bag are included.
