Smooth Operators
The freedom to get the lens exactly where it's wanted in a studio or
location environment is seductive to directors, and drives continuous
innovation, writes Contributing Editor Adrian Pennington...
Heads
Jimmy Jibs are the industry standard
for broadcast so Mo-Sys Engineering
has created an interface suitable for its
own B20 remote head. The Jimmy Jib
control box is replaced with a control
allowing users to alter speed, direction
and ramping. The interface also opens
up the possibility to use the B20 with
other Mo-Sys inputs, like hand-wheels
or pan-bars for more demanding shots.
Telemetrics' servo technology is
included in its new PT-LP-S5 head to
accommodate higher payloads and
"smoother, quieter on-air operation".
A quick button access enables pan, tilt
and pedestal limits to be set directly
on the PTZ head, without the need for
a control panel. LED indicators provide
monitoring capability for Ethernet
connectivity, power and load out of
balance status. Along with Ethernet
and Wi-Fi support, the PT-LP-S5 is also
'virtual set'-ready.
Miller Camera Support has a new
set of Arrows which share a unique
sequential counterbalance design,
according to MD Mark Clementson.
"Unlike other solutions where a
continuous counterbalance or a boost
button would shift the whole range by
four steps, causing the user to have to
start over finding the right position,
Miller's 16 CB PLUS features eight
large counterbalance steps, allowing
the user to get to their position quickly
and efficiently," he explains.
ArrowX series consists of three
models, ArrowX 3, ArrowX 5 and ArrowX
7. The CB Plus switch located at the
front of the head, adds a half step
Sachtler Video 18-S2
can handle 20Kgs

between each of the eight larger steps
enabling counterbalance fine-tuning
when required.
Libec is marketing the RH25D Dual
Head which supports 13lbs, and the
RH45D Dual Head which supports
26.5lbs. These heads come equipped
with both a 75mm and flat base
adapter for use on 75mm and flat
base tripods. Both feature continuous
counter balance. "They are perfect for
DSLRs and heavy rigs with settings for
pan and tilt making it a professional
fluid head that supports heavier
payloads," explains spokesperson Jose
Larios.
Sachtler's bestselling fluid head
Video 18 S2 has been upgraded to
handle a greater load bearing capacity
up to 20kg (4kg more than the S1).
The head is claimed as unique in its
ability to work at -40 to +60 degrees
centigrade "without any impact on its
smooth operation".
Using the same control system as
its CP and CP JR heads, VariZoom's
CP Micro is more "affordable" and
comes in a smaller package suitable
for compact cameras like the Canon
C300. The CP Micro works with any jib,
remote pan tilt or multi-camera studio
control system and is compatible with
all of the CP controllers, including pan
bars, hand wheels, advanced console,
Jibstick Pro, Jibstick JR and the new
River multi-head 28-axis console. The
latter can control up to four cameras
with
PTZ/focus/iris/track/boom
capability.
Rushworks' PTX Universal PanTilt
head works with BMD Micro Studio
Camera 4K, Sony, Canon, Panasonic,
JVC and other cameras that support
LANC control. The head also integrates
robotic lighting and video control
enabling lighting directors and
scene designers to use DMX consoles
to block shots using one or more
cameras. Additionally, they can
ISO-record one or more cameras for
post-event video editing.
Stabilisers
Steadicam, a Tiffen brand, has
launched Steadimate, a gimbal arm
and vest adapter that allows operators
to attach a Steadicam arm and vest

to motorised gimbal stabilisers
including the DJI Ronin and Freefly
MōVI. The user swaps
out one of the handles
of the motorised gimbal
and replaces it with
the Steadimate. From
there, the Steadimate
serves as the handle of
the motorised gimbal, but
now it is equipped with
an arm post for attaching a
stabilising arm.
This is intended to smooth out
some of the movements you still
get by only using a handheld gimbal
as well as enabling camera tilting
and interchangeable use from
handheld operation to Steadicam. The
Steadimate, which may be purchased
separately, is bundled free with a
Zephyr Arm and Vest combo.
Steadicam has also introduced its
A series, a replacement for its Pilot
stabilisation system. Alone, the sled
supports up to 25lbs. and features
P-tap, 1/4-20 weights for balance,
a handle, a carbon fibre post and
detachable aluminium base.
New to Glidecam Industries is
the XR-Pro, a stabiliser for handling
up to 10 lbs./4.5 kg. The iGlide II is
presented as "the most advanced
and sophisticated small stabiliser for
compact cameras up to 3 lbs./1.36 kg."
Whereas the previous iGlide model
handled up to 16 ounces in camera
weight, the iGlide II has three times
the capacity and features the familiar
Glidecam gimbal.
Freefly, best known for its MōVI
stabilisers, has a remote-controlled

Articulated: MSE Infinity Arm loaded up

four-wheel vehicle designed to
hold a MōVI M5, M10, or M15 3-axis
gimbal stabiliser. Applications for
the TERO include getting a camera
into the middle of a stunt scene or
other situations that would be too
dangerous for a human operator, all
while maintaining shot control and
stability. A top cheeseplate makes it
easy to mount a MōVI and accessories.
For controlling the TERO and all three
axes of an attached MōVI, a radio
transmitter is included.
Dollies and tracks
Dolly moves are a staple in big
budget productions, but traditional
dollies are heavy, expensive, and can
take two people over an hour to set
up. With Camera Goat's system, dolly
type shots can be set up by one person
in a matter of minutes, claims inventor
and DP Jeffery Garland. The modular
aluminium-machined system can take
cameras from GoPros to Imax. "The
advantage to using four independently
levelling legs is a more stable shooting
platform than other sliders that use
traditional tripods and combo stands
for support," claims Garland.
