Cable operated Pan Head Kit for BackPackers and CobraCranes 8 feet and under.
Add the next dimension to your CobraCrane system with our new Pan Head kit. This simple, lightweight kit provides you with the ability to pan your camera 180 degrees at the end of the crane. A simple turn of the handle offers 90 degree pans left of center and 90 degrees right of center throughout the entire arc of your crane. You can even pan while tilted.
Now you can pan your camera 180 degrees so you can get those tough to get shots that previously required a panning mechanism costing thousands of dollars. Ideal for repositioning the camera when at the end of your crane. Our super simple panning kit attaches to any CobraCrane and adds the dimension of localized panning to your shots. Like everything else from the SteadyTracker company, the panning kit is easy to use and offers a great value for your money. Its smooth teflon cable operation allows you to pan the camera 90 degrees from center left and right and works even while tilted.
Now you can follow your talent by either swinging the crane or panning the camera on it’s own. Also great for doing dutch rolls, where your camera is set 90 perpendicular to the crane, then using the tilt control will roll the camera. Weighing in at under two pounds the Pan Head kit is made of high strength, lightweight aluminum, turns on smooth encased roller bearings and supports cameras up to 6.5 pounds, so it does not add much weight to your crane. Its easy to carry and even easier to use.
You simply turn the handle clockwise and the camera pans clockwise up to 90 degrees from center. Turn the handle counterclockwise and the camera pans left. You can set up the panning kit in under 5 minutes and get super cool panning shots from every angle throughout the tilt range.
We designed the unit to be trouble free and easy to setup and use. Its rugged construction will last for years and provide you with trouble free panning right away. Its simple design makes it easy to learn and with only a few minutes of practice, you will be getting the money shot on your very first shoot.
The kit comes complete with handle mount assembly which mounts to the lower part of any CobraCrane; while the panhead mounts on the camera bracket; cables, sliding quick release plate and all associated hardware, so its ready to go when you are.

Whats the difference between the PH1 and the PH1PLUS?
The difference between the pan head kits is simply the length of cable to support the longer crane.
