1000 PRO

Camera Stabilization System (up to 6 lbs)

Imagine a world in balance. Imagine smoothness, freedom and grace. With the 1000

PRO your camcorder seems to float, always balanced, isolated from your hand’s undesirable motions. Now you are free to move with your camera – panning, tilting, booming or running – without any camera instability or shake. The 1000 PRO is a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system that allows you to shoot incredibly smooth and graceful shots, even while running up and down stairs or traveling over rugged terrain. And when it comes to normal shooting, like walking or moving the camera slowly around someone, the results are equally magical. Shot after shot, move after move, the 1000 PRO delivers beautifully smooth and professional results. No more need for a tripod or a Dolly — now all you need is your imagination!

Only 16˝ tall, supports any camcorder weighing up to

6 pounds.

Easy to set up and balance, the 1000 Pro allows unrestricted booming and unrestricted 360° panning.

The camera platform moves back and forth and side to side, allowing quick adjustment of the camera’s horizontal balance. Camera’s vertical balance is adjusted by varying the amount of counterweight disks on the base platform.

Offset handle grip is attached to a free-floating precision Gimbal, allowing hand movement up and down and side to side, thereby isolating unwanted hand interference from the camera. The up and down movement alleviates the bouncing pogo-type action associated with other systems whose handles cannot move up and down.

409+ Industries offers a wide variety of camera stabilization systems for use with motion picture, video cameras and camcorders. These hand-held and body-mounted camera Stabilizers create super smooth shots, allowing you to walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles, and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake. Ideal camera accessories, they easily replace or can be used in conjunction with Dollies and Tracks, Booms, Camera Cranes, Tripods or Monopods. Both professionals and amateurs alike can enjoy the fluidity and grace that stabilizers provide.

3000 PRO

Camera Stabilization System (up to 6 lbs)

Employing a unique exoskeletal forearm support brace, the 3000 PRO is the first camera stabilization system designed to distribute the weight of the system over the entire forearm of the operator. The forearm brace not only provides you with cushioned comfort while shooting, but also eliminates “torque” which would otherwise cause stress on your wrist. With the forearm support brace, shooting smooth and professional looking images is a natural — as the 3000 PRO becomes an extension of your body.

Balance and stabilize any camcorder or camera weighing from

4 to 10 pounds.

The counterweights on the Base Platform can be quickly attached or adjusted while the system is resting in an upright position on its base.

The 3000 offers 360° panning and more than 270 ° tilting.

G L I D E C A M

3000 PRO

Additional 3000 PRO Features

You can shoot upside-down, sideways, low near the ground, overhead and angled, as in a Dutch shot.

The system's free floating, precision gimbal includes integrally shielded bearings, two of which are housed in the unique

Offset Handlegrip. These precision bearings create the super-smooth and pivotable connection between your arm and the unit's Central Support Post.

Made of aluminum with foam padding, nylon cloth and velcro strapping, the

Forearm Support Brace has a connector that allows it to quickly slip in and out of the offset handle for quick connection or disconnection from the System.

The connector can be attached to the handle at varying angles to suit your preference of shooting.

The Camera Mounting Platform (x-y motion table) measures 5.25˝ by 8˝ and has both 1/4˝ and 3/8˝ mounting holes.

The 3000 is 20” tall without the supplied

5˝ extension post attached. Using the post allows less counterweights to be used when setting the vertical balance, thereby making the whole system lighter.

The Forearm Brace can be removed from your arm very quickly in case of an emergency. (The system can be used without the Brace, but only with lighter cameras.)

For remote viewing, an optional LCD monitor can be attached to a variety of mounting holes on the base platform.

BODY POD

Support for 1000 and 3000 PRO

The Body Pod is a lightweight rigid support system which lets you shoot in cushioned comfort for indefinite periods of time with either the 1000 or 3000

Pro. By taking the weight of the Stabilizer off your hands and arms and placing it onto your waist and shoulders, the Body Pod virtually eliminates stress and fatigue, allowing you the freedom to shoot events that require uninterrupted shooting.

The Body Pod is designed to allow you to quickly slide the handle of either the 1000 PRO or 3000 PRO on and off its rigid support, permitting quick back and forth switching between hand-held stabilization shooting and body mounted shooting.

Use the system while on the move, such as when walking up and down stairs around your subject matter. You can also become a sort of mobile tripod, maintaining your position while shooting, yet being able to quickly and easily change shooting location, based upon the shooting requirements.

■ The Body Pod is especially suited for commercial, industrial and corporate videography, such as weddings, real estate videos, sporting events, etc. The system allows you to leave your tripod behind, rendering you free to move about and shoot from places you would normally be unable to shoot quickly from.

Since the support of the Body Pod is rigid and, for the most part, inflexible, it will not absorb and smooth out camera movements as well as a Stabilizer which is being held in just your hands. However, shooting with your Stabilizer attached to the rigid support of the

Body Pod still yields results that are far better than unstabilized, hand-held shooting or shoulder-supported shooting. Once you get the feel of using the Body Pod, you won’t shoot anything else without it.

V-8

Professional Camera (up to 10 lbs) Stabilization System

With the the V-8, offers the most affordable and versatile line of professional camera stabilizers in the world. With its unique and exclusive

Orbital Hinge technology and compact Dyna-Elastic Arm, the V-8 revolutionizes camera stabilization by bringing and advancing the technology of body motioned camera stabilization to cameras weighing up to 10 pounds. Simply combine a Canon XL-1 or Sony DSR-200A with a V-8, and you have one of the best video acquisition tools available.

Walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles and travel over uneven terrain without camera instability or shake.

The V-8 allows you to shoot the type of super smooth tracking shots that take people’s breath away. Produce the type of ultra-smooth handling shots that until now were only achieved with very heavy inertially stable cameras, and instantly add high production value to every scene.

Whether shooting commercials, industrials, weddings, documentaries, news, music videos or feature length motion pictures, the V-8 brings the fluidity and grace of professional, body mounted, camera stabilizers to your productions.

FEATURES

Support Vest

The support vest is lightweight and comfortable and can be easily adjusted to fit a wide range of operators. High endurance closed cell, FVA foam padding and integral T6 aluminum alloy creates a vest which can hold and evenly distribute the weight of the V-8 system across your shoulders, back and hips. For safety, quick-release high impact buckles allow the vest to be removed quickly. When it comes to the art of stabilizing cameras that are very lightweight, it quickly becomes apparent that the main virtue of a body-mounted system is that it allows you to shoot for long periods of time with very little fatigue.

Dyna-Elastic Support Arm

The adjustable Exoskeletal Dyna-Elastic Support Arm is designed to counteract the weight of the combined camera and Camera Mounting Assembly (the Sled) by employing a high carbon alloy spring. The Support Arm can be boomed up and down, as well as pivoted in and out and side to side.

It is the combined booming and pivoting action of the

Support Arm which isolates the motions of the operator from the camera in a way that creates ultra-smooth shots.

The spring force is field adjustable to allow for varying camera weights.

Orbit Hinge

Innovative Orbit Hinge was designed to increase the isolation between your hip and the Dyna Elastic Arm. The Orbit Hinge accomplishes this isolation with the ability to rotate 360°. This rotation allows the back end of the Rigid

Arm to continuously move in an unobstructed orbital path around the Vest

Mounting Plate.

Camera Mounting Assembly

The rugged and adjustable Camera Mounting Assembly (the Sled) is designed with a lower telescoping central support post (the Extension Post) that allows adjustment of the system’s vertical balance. The central support post can be adjusted from 18˝ to 23˝. The camera mounting platform (or the x-y motion table) moves back and forth and side to side to allow adjustment of the system's horizontal balance. The camera plate has both 1/4˝ and 3/8˝mounting slots

(holes) to accommodate a variety of camera bases. For remote viewing, an LCD monitor can be easily attached to a front 1/4˝ mounting hole on the base platform. Fine weight disks (included) can be used on the base platform as counterbalance to allow adjustment of the system’s vertical balance. A variety of mounting holes are supplied on the base platform, letting you customize it to fit your needs. A free-floating precision (Three-Axis Gimbal), incorporating integrally shielded bearings, creates the super smooth and pivotal connections between the front end of the Dyna-Elastic Arm and the Camera Mounting Assembly. The

Three-Axis Gimbal provides the operator with finger-tip control over fluid tilting, panning and rolling.

DUAL-G

Dual-Handle Counterbalanced Stabilization System

The Dual-G is a dual-gimbaled, dual-handled counterbalanced camera stabilization system designed to distribute the weight of the system between two operators. The Dual-G allows walking, running, going up and down stairs and travel over rugged terrain without any camera instability or shake. It easily replaces conventional dollies and tracks and frees the camera in a way previously only accomplished with systems costing ten times as much. Using a unique, dual-gimbaled support assembly, the Dual-G stabilizes cameras and camcorders weighing from 8 to 22 pounds. The assembly has two handles, dividing the weight of the system between two operators — each person ends up carrying only half the weight. It is the role of the second operator which allows cameras in this weight range to be stabilized without the use of a spring loaded, exoskeletal support arm. With the Dual-G, you will free your mind as well as the camera.

FEATURES

Dual Gimbaled Support Assembly

Both of the Dual-G's free-floating precision gimbals incorporate integrally shielded bearings. These precision bearings create the supersmooth and pivotable connections between the operator's arm and the unit's Central Support Post. The distance between the two foampadded handles can be adjusted to accommodate a variety of shooting styles and situations – the narrowest setting to be between thirteen inches and the widest over five feet.

Central Support Post

The upper portion of the central support post includes guide scale markings. This allows for accurate and repeatable gimbal positioning.

By adjusting the height of the gimbal assembly on the central support post, you can control the system's center of gravity or vertical balance. The Dual-G also comes with a 6˝ extension post. The extension post allows less counterweight(s) to be used when setting the vertical balance, thereby making the whole system lighter.

The Camera Mounting Platform

The camera mounting platform, (or the x-y motion table), moves back and forth and side to side, allowing quick control of the system's horizontal balance. The camera mounting plate measures

5.25 x 8˝ and has both 1/4˝ and 3/8˝ mounting slots to accommodate a variety of cameras.

The Base Platform

The base platform can be configured to use counterbalance weight disks (included) in the event of choosing not to use a monitor and/or battery on the base as counterbalance. The base comes with an adjustable monitor bracket, as well as threaded mounting holes for an Anton Bauer Gold battery plate. Adjustable "Kick-Stands" are located on both sides of the base to give the system more stability when resting on the ground.

Specifications:

Supports and stabilizes any camcorder from 8 to 22 pounds.

■ The system is made of precision aluminum and is 26˝ tall, or 32˝ tall when the 6˝ extension post is attached.

The system weighs 8 pounds without counterweights. For remote viewing, an LCD monitor can be easily attached to a variety of mounting holes on the base platform, or a CRT TV monitor can be attached to the monitor bracket.

The system allows 360° panning and 360° tilting.

The system can also be used with three operators. One person controls the camera at the center, while the other two each hold the handles. This technique is especially useful for trick shots, like flying the camera over a car, etc.

STEADICAM SK2

Professional Steadicam for Cameras 9-19 Lbs

Incorporating the same patented design principles as its larger cousins, the

Steadicam SK2 is designed for use by professional videographers with cameras weighing from 9-19 lbs. Far more compact and less complex than its Oscar and Emmy winning predecessors, the complete SK2 system – sled, stabilizer arm and vest – weighs a mere 21 pounds and fits neatly into the trunk of a car. A patented design makes balancing easier than ever, and a single battery operates both camera and Steadicam. In fact, the SK2 is the only Steadicam simple enough to be operated without workshop training. A comprehensive instructional video will have you up and running in a matter of hours. But make no mistake. The lightweight SK2 performs like a true heavyweight.

The SK2 lets you shoot on the move effortlessly, without cranes, booms or dollies. The sled-mounted monitor offers a crystal-dear picture, relieving your eyes from being glued to your camera’s eyepiece. And with the vest spreading the

SK2's weight comfortably over your torso, you can climb stairs, shoot on the run, or even from a moving vehicle. With one smooth tracking shot, you can capture what used to require five or six setups. An optional low-mode bracket can further enhance your creativity, while eliminating other costly setups. All the shots you might once have considered too expensive, too elaborate or just too impossible are yours with the SK2.

Articulated Arm - This is the spring arm that supports the weight of the camera on all Steadicams (except the JR). Its official name is the

"Double Hinged Exoskeletal Articulated Spring Support Arm”.

Center of Gravity - The point at which an object's weight is in balance in all directions, and from which an object can be manipulated with the least additional rotation. The SK2 gains stability by bringing the center of gravity outside of the camera and placing it within easy manipulation of the operator.

Don Juan - An operating position where the operator walks forward but the camera points backward. Excellent for viewing the faces of actors in motion.

Gimbal - This bearing system allows the Steadicam to rotate freely in all three dimensions, or more precisely, to use its inertia to resist rotation whenever rotational force travels through the Articulated Arm.

Hard Mount - When the socket for the Articulated Arm is bolted, glued, nailed, welded or otherwise securely fastened to some sort of moving platform, ie. the back of a minivan, a Dolly, a wheelchair, a pickup truck, a motorcycle, etc.

Low Mode - Operating with the camera below the Gimbal, instead of the more common, above. This is achieved by either:

1) Mounting the camera from above by using a specialty bracket, the handle or the screw-holes into which the handle attaches, or,

Steadicam Glossary

2) Mounting the camera to the bottom of a Low Mode Cage which is mounted by its top to the Steadicam. This lowers the lens height to about knee height, which is excellent for those dog-eye, snake eye, and little kid's-eye views.

Missionary - an operating position where the camera lens points more or less forward. As opposed to Don Juan.

Moment of Inertia - The resistance of an object to rotation around its center of mass, due to inertia. The larger an object's Moment of

Inertia, the more force is needed to initiate rotation at a given speed.

Moment of inertia can be increased by increasing the distance between the center of mass and the masses within an object.

Sled - This is the electronics portion of the Steadicam, on the opposite end of the Post from the camera. The Sled contains the battery and the monitor. Named "Sled" because earlier Steadicam models had a toboggan, or luge-like shape. The SK2 uses a more modular system for greater flexibility, rather than the all-in-one design that gave the Sled its name.

Vest - This is the part of the Steadicam that distributes the weight of the system to your body. The Articulated Arm fits into a socket just above the waist, which can be switched from the right side (for righthanded operation), to the left (for left-handed operation).

STEADICAM SK2

Oscar and Emmy Award-Winning

The Oscar (and Emmy)-winning Steadicam has revolutionized film and video production techniques worldwide. No other single piece of equipment, since the invention of the handheld camera, has ever added so much to the vocabulary of camera movement. With innumerable features, documentaries, television programs and commercials to its credit, Steadicam has become as essential a production tool as the tripod or dolly.

Designed to provide total mobility, portability and versatility while recording extremely steady and smooth images, Steadicam permits an infinite variety of both moving and static shots — walking, running, or at a standstill.

The Iso-Elastic arm is a single articulated design and can be adjusted while supporting the camera.

This unique design allows you to place the shot in any position where it will remain. This is especially useful for “lockoff ” shots.

STAGE

Rack and pinion lead screw drives offer quick, precise balancing. With simple connections for power and video, it takes only moments to mount your camera to the SK2.

GIMBAL

Cinema Products’ patented Gimbal affords the SK2 operator the same precision that every professional

Steadicam operator has counted on for years.

BATTERY

The SK2 is compatible with NP-1 style, PAG and Anton Bauer bricks.

VEST

Ergonomic and lightweight, the custom vest keeps you cool and comfortable throughout your shoot while providing excellent support to reduce fatigue.

MONITOR

The P43 phosphorous monitor is sharp and clear whether you are shooting in low light conditions or bright sunlight.

The patented system allows the camera to move with you as if it were an extension of your body, automatically adjusting and correcting for body motions as you guide and control the camera position with a gentle hand movement. Released from the constraints of dollies, tracks, and heavy camera platforms, you and the camera are free to go anywhere without restrictions - recording shots previously considered impossible. Capture action scenes with a new sense of fluidity and realism in sweeping continuous takes. In the studio or on location, Steadicam's enormous versatility allows cameraman and director greater creative latitude while effectively reducing production costs.

The ‘Fugitive’ is an excellent example of modern, non- intrusive

Steadicam technique. No scene stands out as a Steadicam shot; the Steadicam shots blend smoothly with all of the tripod and dolly shots. Whether running through lobbies, sneaking through drainage tunnels, or charging through ballrooms, the characters are usually lead by the camera -- and that leading camera is the

Steadicam. With the Steadicam, the actor can move freely in line with the camera (so that the camera sees their faces) without stepping on or over tracks. And the characters in that movie were almost always on the move.

STEADICAM SK2

With the Steadicam SK2, you only need to add a battery (and a camera) as all other required system parts are included. The SK2 includes the Turtle Base “C”

Stand as well as the “Lo-Mode” kit. The Turtle Base “C” Stand, required for balance, is in two sections and fits neatly in the supplied soft carrying case.

Utilizing a proven Low Mass Gimbal, the

SK2 helps capture the fluid movement that only a Steadicam can provide.

■ P43 Green Screen monitor allows good contrast from dark to light conditions

Precision camera stage provides a solid base for the camera and facilitates smooth adjustment – side to side and fore and aft.

Carbon fiber post and interface to the stage form a solid bond to assure no jitter in the picture as you capture those unique scenes.

Includes a self-instructing videotape with manual. (While you can learn with these tools, Cinema Products offers regional

Steadicam workshops on a regular basis).

STEADICAM JR

The ‘Personal’ Steadicam

Incorporating the same isolation techniques as the Steadicam SK2, the JR

(pronounced J.R. not “Junior”) works with small digital camcorders to yield images as smooth and jitter-free as those of the professional Steadicam rigs.

The JR relies on the same techniques for isolation, spreading camera mass and manipulating the center of gravity as the professional Steadicams. Now the invention that won Academy and Emmy awards for technical achievement is available for your camcorder.

Three-Axis Gimbal reduces rotary jarring.

The gimbal, located at the top of the handle, is the most sophisticated engineering in the JR, intercepting unwanted rotation before it reaches the camera.

■ Spreads the weight of the camera, increasing the resistance of the rig to unwanted Tilt and Roll and pulling the center of gravity into your hands (actually, fingertips).

Instead of using an articulated arm to support the weight of the rig, the JR uses the more sophisticated, but less predictable human arm.

With the larger rigs, taking a shot that does not involve the Steadicam in flight

(like on a tripod) requires removing the camera from the Steadicam. With the JR, however, you do not need to remove the

Steadicam to get those shots.

Folding up the bottom arm and folding out a "Whale's Tail" (a small, "Y"-shaped piece of metal) converts it into a shoulder mount. If both arms are folded flat, the

JR attaches to a tripod with standard screws. In all positions, the LCD monitor is still useable.

Includes a specially treated 3.5˝ LCD monitor that minimize reflections, freeing your eyes from the camcorder viewfinder.

■ Folds and stores in a layer 2˝ high beneath your camcorder. Weighs 2 lbs.

Includes an excellent training video describing setup, practice, and operation.

VZ-LSP

Professional Shoulder Brace

One of the biggest drawbacks of

DV camcorders is their lack of a proper shoulder mount. With the

VariZoom VZ-LSP this problem is now a thing of the past. Designed by Peter Lisand, the VZ-LSP is the ultimate shoulder brace providing no less than ten adjustable fittings for an endless variety of shooting configurations. Precision crafted from machined aluminum, the VZ-LSP is tough, lightweight and built to last.

Separating this brace from its competitors is the fully ab support

(included), giving you three points of contact with the brace

(hand, shoulder and body) for maximum camera support and control. The camera mounting platform can be positioned exactly as desired, raising the viewfinder right to the shooter’s eye. Combined with a VariZoom Lens Controller clamped to the grip handle, you not only have the most powerful acquisition tool, but also the most comfortable one. Ideal for camcorders like the XL-1,

The ideal companions for the 3031, 3036, 3046 and

Many dollies brake against the caster wheel itself, which can cause wear and slippage. But when you depress the centrally located foot pedal of the 3056 or

3156, you release all three wheels. When you lift the pedal, cam action raises the wheels free of the ground, and the weight of the Dolly and tripod rests on separate feet.

To support a camera for very low angle shooting, a European thread stud is provided on the central casting where you can mount your Bogen fluid head.

FLUID HEADS

Libec by Matthews Fluid Heads

The professional videographer has no choice but to depend on his equipment, in the studio and on location. Libec by

Matthews Fluid Heads have been designed to perform in all conditions and circumstances, allowing the videographer to concentrate on the shot, instead of the equipment. Smooth pans and tilts, with no backlash or bumps, are a given with the use of Libec by Matthews Fluid Heads. Rapid, secure camera counterbalance is achieved through torque control and plate positioning. Most Libec by Matthews Fluid Heads feature claw-ball bases for easy system leveling and will operate in temperatures as low as -22°F (-30°C).

H-80 FLUID HEAD

Only Libec could engineer a premium fluid head that allows the smoothest pan and tilt available anywhere. "Infinite" control of pan and tilt drag is obtained by a continuous Drag Control System that eliminates click stops at predetermined points. Optimum camera balance with tilt angles of

+90° or -90° is obtained with the continuous Counterbalance Control System. The counterbalancing mechanism is so unique that a patent is pending. The DoveTail Plate is included with the H80 head and will allow the entire unit to snap onto the head without the need to line up the dovetail.

The plate will slide approximately 4˝ (100mm) to obtain the proper camera balance. State of the art technology permits performance in temperatures down to -22°F (-30°C).

The H80 is equipped with a 100mm claw-ball to simplify camera leveling, one pan handle (PH-7) and a claw-ball locking knob. Weighs 8.5 lbs., camera load capacity is 13 to 37 lbs.

H-70 FLUID HEAD

The H70’s patented counterbalance mechanism supports various operating configurations, from stand-alone cameras to cameras with docked recorders, and even studio configurations with large viewfinders. Perfect balance can be obtained with settings from 0 to 3, depending on camera weight —from 13 to 33 lbs. (6-15kg) – and tilt angle.

The patented 4-Step Drag Control System permits four individual levels of drag tension to be set on either Pan or Tilt to accomplish the smoothest camera moves imaginable. Tilt angle is

+90º to -75º.

To further enhance the H70, a sliding balance plate is provided, featuring a patented locking mechanism and allowing a total of approximately 4˝ (100mm) of travel for camera balance.

The H70 is equipped with a 100mm claw-ball, one pan handle (PH-7) and claw-ball locking knob. It weighs 9 lbs. (4kg).

H-60 FLUID HEAD

The H60 Fluid Head has 2-step drag control for both Pan and Tilt, and a sliding quick-mount plate with 4˝ (100mm) travel for camera balance. Tilt angle is +85º to -65º.

Includes 100mm claw-ball, one pan handle (PH-7) and claw-ball locking knob. Weighs 9 lbs., camera load capacity is 18-29 lbs.

Pneumatic counterbalance will accept any head made.

Easily rolls through doorways with a minimum clearance of 28˝.

■ Steering wheel diameter is 19˝. Controls the

5.75˝ diameter dual truck wheels.

Completely sealed pressure system 1 to 1 ratio (PSI to load) with pressure relief valve at 250 PSI. Standard compressed air is used;

12 pressure differential trim wafers provided.

P-8 Studio Pedestal ....................11,650.00

P-6 Studio Pedestal

The P-6 represents state of the art design in an affordable studio pedestal. The P-6 is completely counterbalanced and requires only fingertip control for elevation adjustments or lateral crabbing. The 20˝ diameter steering wheel controls three sets of 5.75˝ diameter dual wheel trucks with adjustable cable guards. The P-6 has a doorway tracking width of 28.5˝. Counterbalanced loads of up to 160 lbs. (head and camera system) are supported by quiet constant force spring cassettes. Minimum camera load is 15 lbs.

P-6 Studio Pedestal Load capacity of 160 lbs. weighs 167 lbs. ................................................7750.00

P-100 Pedestal

The P100 is a small size pedestal that offers great flexibility without taking up too much space. Featuring an advanced air pressure system, the P100 smoothly handles loads up to 66 lbs., easily accommodating professional cameras used in a studio. Ideal for CATV, small studios, event and wedding video, as well as all kinds of industrial and institutional applications.

■ Air pump attached to the main body frame allows air to be pumped into a column anywhere and anytime – even while a camera is mounted on the pedestal. This allows you to check and adjust the air pressure while using the pedestal, and to avoid the over-filling of air.

■ Air pressure can be gradually adjusted by discharging air through a bleed valve. A relief valve automatically lets air out when air pressure inside the column exceeds the uniform value.

A track lock mechanism locks the wheels of the pedestal, so that it only moves in a desired position.

■ Large double wheel 5˝ casters allow the

P100 to move smoothly and quickly.

CAMERA SUPPORT

The greatest reassurance for ENG and EFP professionals is knowing that their camera support equipment is designed by a company aware of the specific needs of field and location production. Tripods must be light, stable on all terrains, weather resistant, compact, and easy to set up. Pan and Tilt heads must operate smoothly and consistently, and they must seamlessly handle different payloads. They should also be light, compact, anti-corrosive and simple to operate. The silky, smooth action of each Miller Fluid Head is the product of the finest quality cast and machined parts, functioning together in a fluid environment. They are engineering masterpieces, built to operate under the most extreme conditions. They are engineered to exceptionally fine tolerances, and their mechanisms are protected effectively against ambient moisture and dust. So, too, with Miller’s comprehensive tripod range. As new materials and new design techniques are implemented, the tripods become lighter, yet achieve greater torsional rigidity and continue to offer innovative features that set new standards for camera support systems.

Miller Fluid Heads

The smoothest Pan and Tilt action in the field, from the company who invented Fluid Drag

Multi-Step Pan & Tilt

Fluid Drag System

The benchmark by which others are judged,

Miller’s multi-step Fluid Drag system ensures smooth, consistent fluid drag control across all temperature ranges and through a wide range of light and heavy settings – something continuous drag systems cannot duplicate. By being independent of payload weight, the multi-step system ensures smooth “starts” and dead “stops” for precise framing without any backlash. The system is fully sealed within sub-assemblies for a leakproof, low maintenance life.

Preset and Adjustable

Counterbalancing

Miller has designed specialized counterbalancing systems to neutralize the effect of payloads and their centers of gravity. The preset counterbalance system built into the DS-5, 10 and 20, combined with a sliding camera platform (DS-

10 and 20), optimize tilt control in the intended capacity range of these heads. The adjustable counterbalance of the DS-25 and Arrow 50 accommodate a broad range of cameras, lenses and other accessories for ENG & EFP applications.

Quick Release

Camera Platforms

Every Miller fluid head is fitted with a precision, quick release camera platform that incorporates a sliding balance plate for fine tune payload balancing.

The self-engaging action of Miller camera plates ensures rapid camera attachment in the field, while the built-in safety lock guarantees camera safety during setup and pull-down.

Arrow 50 Pan/Tilt Fluid Head

Today’s ENG/EFP cameras are lighter, more versatile and offer a wider range of ergonomically accessible controls than ever before. The design functionality of the Arrow 50 reflects this evolution. The result is a totally new approach to head design which complements the position, color and shape of camera operational controls. Pan and Tilt controls are at the rear for easy access. All rear-mount controls, including the bubble level, are illuminated for easy operation under low light conditions.

Using the latest CAD/CAM technology, precision milling and advanced wear-resistant material, the Arrow 50 offers the smoothest 7-position selectable drag system possible. It satisfies every need – from those who call for an ‘ultra-light’ touch to those who demand the heaviest in drag resistance.

SERIES II TRIPODS

Lightweight Alloy and Carbon Fiber Tripods for Any Application on Any Terrain

Ultra-Light Carbon Fiber

Stronger, more durable and 25% lighter than metal-based systems,

Miller’s Ultra-Light carbon fiber tubing optimizes strength and torsional rigidity. Ultra-Light is manufactured by a ‘pull-trusion’ method, which draws three offset layers of fine woven carbon fiber through a high temperature resin bath. The result is optimum strength across all axis and the ultimate in shock, scratch and corrosion resistance.

Pro-Lok: Torque Limited Leg Clamps

No more over tightening, no more adjusting. Pro-Lok is a single-turn torque limited leg clamp that is the fastest and safest means of clamping tripod legs into position. Selfadjusting Pro-Lok eliminates over tightening and keeps leg pressure constant under all extremes.

Tripod Bowl and Ball & Socket Hip Joint

Reinforced ball and socket hip joints and strengthened tripod Bowl combine in an axial design to produce tripods that boast the highest level of torsional rigidity – with no backlash – at all heights and across any terrain.

Positive Grip Rubber Feet

Positive grip rubber feet are designed for use on all Series II tripods with above ground Spreaders. The increased pad diameter, suction rubber molding and low center of gravity at the tripod attachment all ensure optimum stability on a wide range of surfaces. All

Series II ENG tripods are available with above-ground Spreaders, which provide maximum stability when mounting tripods on uneven surfaces.

Quality Construction

All Miller tripods are constructed using the most advanced alloys and polymers.

Specially milled, cold drawn alloy and crosslaminated carbon fiber tubing, thermoplastic moldings and stainless steel fixings combine to create lightweight, corrosion-resistant tripods which are highly stable under load.

Lightweight Series II Tripods

Weighing only 4.4 lbs. in carbon fiber (5.5

lbs. in alloy) and boasting a 30 lbs. payload,

Miller’s lightest ENG tripod is ideal for lightweight CCD cameras and camcorders.

Collapsing down to 32˝, they are extremely compact and operate with a ground spreader or above-ground spreader.

Singl e

-Stage Series II Tripods

With a dual lower leg system, the Miller

Single-Stage provides a rock solid camera base at all operating heights for cameras up to 50 lbs. A new, reinforced ball and socket hip joint and sturdy alloy or carbon fiber tubing eliminate play and backlash to allow for the smoothest shots possible.

2-Stage Series II Tripods

Miller's 2-Stage tripods offer the ultimate in torsional rigidity for all field operations.

Weighing only 5.3 lbs. in ultra-light CF, the

2-Stage axial design ensures equal stability to regular tripods. With a 15 to 62” operating range, any job can be tackled with a single tripod.

PRO-JIB

The Miller Pro-Jib is a versatile camera mount, designed to add the dimension of tracking and elevation to the normal range of movements afforded by your fluid head. By adding elevation and tracking to the traditional Pan and Tilt movements of fluid heads, the Pro-Jib dramatically extends the creativity of film and professional video production. It is no doubt the most creative tool you can add to your arsenal.

The most versatile and cost-effective camera jib available, the Pro-Jib is lightweight, compact and portable. Weighing only 25 lbs. and folding into a soft reinforced shoulder bag (optional), the Pro-Jib is ideal for travelling to a location shoot or for use in the studio. It is precision engineered to deliver smooth action, while meeting the toughest physical demands of

ENG/EFP and studio production. Handling camera payloads up to 50 lbs., the Pro-Jib attaches quickly and easily to most conventional heads and tripods, giving it flexibility for use as a cost-effective studio crane where onshot elevation is required, or on location where setup speed, weight and size are critical.

The Pro-Jib is fitted with Pan and Tilt drag controls and a positive lock for the Jib arm vehicle movement. The tilt lock is easily distinguished from the tilt drag by the large cone shape thrust locker located under the tilt lock knob. Rotating the drag adjusters increases or reduces the amount of drag.

Extends your camera height range to 2 meters (6’), allowing a single operator to achieve impressive crane perspectives.

Uses standard barbell weights (not included), plus a unique sliding tailshaft for precise counterbalance.

Tracking and elevation has never been easier or smoother.

Combined with Miller’s Maxi tripod, Pro-Jib is the lightest, most versatile camera Jib arm available.

The Miller Undermount lets you track from ground level up to nearly six feet with absolute stability. Unlike other reverse mounts,

Undermount fits directly below the existing Bowl to ensure that the camera’s center of gravity remains at its most stable point.

Only 25 lbs., Pro-Jib is half the weight of comparable Jibs. It also folds down to an incredibly compact 48˝ for easy transportation.

Miller Highjack

The Miller Highjack is an accessory column lift for its ENG/EFP range of tripods and camera support systems. The column lift can be added to any existing Miller 75mm or

100mm ball-base tripod without modification and attaches by merely removing the existing threaded stud from the bottom of the head. Now getting shots over a crowd, over a shoulder or even on the tabletop becomes routine with this versatile tool.

M I L L E R

HIGHJACK

At normal operating heights, small height changes are made easily. It is also much simpler and faster to set up with a column, rather than to adjust three legs individually.

Adds approximately 13˝ of vertical travel while maintaining the ball level capacity of the system.

Practical and easy to shoot straight down when working close to tables and shooting documents. The legs can be set low, so that the leg joint goes under the top of the table, while the column gets the camera to operating height.

Remarkably stable, even at full extension.

CAMERA SUPPORT SYSTEMS

Tripods and Fluid Heads

Sachtler, the leader in professional camera support equipment, is guided by a simple philosophy: The cameraman can only transform his ideas into fascinating footage when engineering supports him in the proper manner. To that end,

Sachtler support equipment is designed and manufactured to give the cameraman complete flexibility, allowing maximum creativity without any restrictions. When it comes to sure handling, ease of operation and durability, Sachtler sets the standard.

Frictionless Fluid Damping

A prerequisite for perfect pictures is a panning movement without jerks and vibrations. Sachtler’s patented damping system takes everything in stride. The individual modules are frictionless and contain no hydraulic oil. This means they are permanently leak proof. The damping action of our heads is identical across both horizontal and vertical planes. Sachtler’s patented damping system is not influenced by pressure or temperature, from - 40°F to + 140°F, and works without friction. This is because the damping modules perform no other tasks, such as counterbalancing the camera.

Touch and Go Automatic Locking System

With Sachtler’s supporting equipment, one does not need to spend a lot of time fiddling around. The Touch and Go system invented by Sachtler is the best proof of this. The camera is automatically locked after being placed onto the fluid head, and all settings stay unchanged. The safety lock protects against accidental release.

Dynamic Counterbalance System

The sliding camera mount and the balance plate respectively, in combination with the Sachtler Touch & Go automatic locking system, make a fast balancing system for the camera.

Most importantly, once adjusted, the settings cannot be lost.

The torque, while tilting the camera, is adjusted simply and quickly by dial in counterbalance. The Sachtler torsion spring elements form the most compact counterbalancing system.

They are adjusted individually for the different classes of cameras. Independent from the damping system, they work silently and without the need for maintenance.

Precision Manufacturing

Parts and structural components for all Sachtler’s fluid heads have to pass quality control before being used. That means passing fatigue tests simulating five years of continuous use.

DV Systems — Digital Support for Every Budget

Today’s compact digital cameras require light, fast and highly versatile camera support systems. Starting from the DV2, all the way up to the DV12, Sachtler has a solution tailored for just about every conceivable digital camera package available today. All feature

Sachtler’s patented Counterbalance system and Touch and Go wedge plates. And all, except the DV2, feature sliding camera platform to ease in the balancing of your camera.

1-90/2-75 Vario Pedestals • 1-90/2-75 Studio Pedestals

One and Two-Stage Steering Pedestals with

Vario Dolly or Studio Pedestal Dolly

■ The Vario and Studio series Pedestals are perfectly suited for all weights and sizes of modern broadcast cameras for OB and studio use.

■ The compact, modular construction of these pedestals achieves maximum stability at a relatively low weight. Precision engineering techniques are employed to guarantee the optimum setup for any studio or

OB work.

■ The modular design of the pedestals means that the steering wheel, column and dolly form three easily portable lightweight components which can be assembled in seconds without tools. Due to the increased weight, the Studio Pedestals provide just the right feel for maneuvering in the studio, while keeping all the advantages of an OB pedestal – narrow track ability, in particular.

■ The Pedestals are steered by a removable hand wheel on which holders are fitted for trim weights to compensate for temperature changes during a shooting session.

■ The Vario and Studio pedestals use a low pressure system with a safety pressure valve, preventing over pressure of air to the pedestals. A column lock and Sachtler Quickfix mount for fast changes of the fluid head are standard, as is the friction damping which prevents unwanted movement of the column during rapid tilting.

■ Whether on hard rubber wheels or optional pneumatic tires, the Vario Peds can shrink to

27˝ doorway clearance for narrow passages.

The Dolly base may be folded for easy transport. Crab and steer switching, individual wheel brakes and cable guards are standard on both pedestals.

■ The Vario 1-90 and Studio 1-90 are heavyduty with extra load capacity for heavy camera configurations up to 198 lbs. The Vario 2-75 and Studio 2-75 are "true" two-stage pedestals, offering an extended ‘on air’ stroke of 30˝, with a load capacity of 165 lbs. The height range of the Vario and Studio pedestals allows horizontal cameras to shoot persons who are sitting or standing.

Studio Pedestals Only

■ The Studio Pedestals have all the advantages of the Vario series and combine the feel of a traditional pedestals with a kick strip to maneuver the pedestal by foot.

■ The large, flat Dolly surface of the

Studio Pedestals eases camera setup by providing a platform for accessories and better visibility of the wheels and thus the steering direction.

CII Pedestal and Combi Pedestal

Portable Pedestals

■ The Sachtler C II and Combi Pedestals offer the performance of a studio pedestal with the portability to go on the road to outside events.

■ The compact modular construction of the C II and Combi pedestal allow set up without any tools and makes transporting them an easy one person task.

■ The column utilizes a low pressure pneumatic spring. To fill the column simply attach the manual compressor and fill with air --no pressure cylinder is needed.

■ The only difference between the C II and the Combi Pedestal is that the Combi is a steerable pedestal and the C II is a non-steering stand alone pedestal

CAMERA SUPPORT SYSTEMS

Why Vinten?

The video picture is essentially dynamic, therefore camera movement needs to be perfectly smooth. The ability to start a Pan or Tilt and stop it without any camera shake is absolutely essential. To avoid backlash at the end of a camera move, a totally rigid platform for the head to sit on is critical. The ability to move from place to place, quickly and easily – absolutely vital.

All Vinten Pan and Tilt Heads feature a combination of a unique counterbalancing system which offers “perfect camera balance” and a fluid damping system which incorporates continuously variable adjustment for precise and stable camera movement. Vinten’s range of tripods, while robust enough to provide total stability, set up fast, and are lightweight for easy transport and quick action deployment.

As the world leader in the manufacture of studio, lightweight and OB camera support for over sixty years, Vinten allows cameramen to produce the most creative pictures possible. The winner of numerous awards for design and engineering, and the possessor of an unsurpassed reputation in the broadcast industry, is it any wonder that Vinten equipment can be seen in the studios of the world’s TV broadcast stations?

FEATURES

Pan and Tilt Head Balancing

If a camera is not counterbalanced, you need a considerable amount of physical effort to control the tilting action, and poor picture quality can result. The function of a Vision balance system is to provide an infinitely variable adjustment to compensate for the variety of portable camera and lens combinations available. Comprised of an innovative and patented spring mechanism, Vinten’s patented counterbalance system permits fast, simple camera balancing at any tilt angle within the head’s range and weight capacity.

Whichever Vision head you use, adjust it once to get perfect “hands off ” camera balance at any angle over the full 180° range of tilt. A ‘‘Perfect Balance System’’ for portable and studio cameras, it allows total control and provides precise camera movement.

Drag Systems

Without some form of drag control to provide the right amount of resistance or

"damping", it would be almost impossible to control any camera movement. It is a key feature of any Pan and Tilt head system. Vinten uses two types of drag systems:

TF (Thin Film): TF is an innovative 'non-contacting' new drag system which ensures consistent drag and constant performance over a temperature range of - 40º to + 60ºC. The drag characteristic has been developed to ensure the critical slow start-up of movements and to offer you total control with a seamless transition into

“Whip Pan” and instant recovery to the original drag setting at the finish of movement. The drag knobs are detented to give a dial-in "feel" and prevent any backdriving during operation.

LF (Lubricated Friction):

The LF is a progressive, striction free drag, where the torque is provided from a sliding contact between dissimilar surfaces. The variable drag is adjusted to provide a non-linear torque speed characteristic which allows "whip-pan" movements.

Torque Safe Clamps

The clamping efficiency of tripod legs is a key function to maintain reliability and safety. Utilizing torque-lock principles, Vinten engineers developed “Torque-safe” — a tripod clamping system which always maintains its factory set efficiency. Standard on all tripods, except the PRO-130, the clamp can never be stressed, as the torque limiter prevents over-tightening of the clamp. It is also self-adjusting with a detente system. When the knob is turned to its first detente, you are provided with a tactile feedback, confirming optimum clamping.

Vision 8 and 11 — Lightweight Heads for the Future

Superbly engineered and designed for use in professional broadcast, educational and corporate poductions, the Vision 8 and Vision 11 simultaneously provide the ultimate in lightweight support with exceptional robustness — even in the toughest shooting conditions.

Field proven LF Fluid Drag system ensures that the smoothest movement is always achieved, with built-in ‘on demand’ Whip

Pan capability. Drag is activated by the new style controls which are ergonomically positioned to provide the simplest operation and strongest protection, even in tough handling situations.

■ Continuously variable fluid damping enables the “feel” of a camera to be perfectly adjusted to any shooting situation. Pan drag and tilt drag work beautifully, and since the camera is perfectly balanced, it can be left at any angle - totally hands free

- without having to lock off the tilt brake.

■ Adjustable camera mounting plate with unique rubber grip strips hold the camera rock steady.

Interlock device prevents the camera mounting plate from sliding off the head when the plate lock is released.

Unique design features allow fast setup – a must if you are continuously on the move.

The leveling bowl has a double threaded screw shank which allows the bowl lock to be tightened and released quickly. Very handy when you are constantly adjusting the bowl to level the camera (especially on uneven terrain).

■ A single rotary knob on the back of the heads ensure variable adjustment for perfect camera balancing. Vinten's patented spring-assisted, counterbalance system allows perfect “hands-off ” continuously variable camera balance at any tilt angle from - 90° to + 90°. Any camera combination can be quickly and easily balanced.

Ideal for the latest portable digital camcorders and camera combinations.

Tough die-cast body ensures robustness, while quality design and construction provide a lifetime of precision.

To assist in dim lighting, the drag knob of both heads are backlit with amber illumination. The illumination level is adjusted accordingly (depending on the lighting conditions) by a light sensor built into the digital readout. For further convenience, the leveling bubble of the Vision 11 is also illuminated.

■ The Vision 11 has the advantage of a digital counterbalance readout, with repeatable balance setting for even faster setup. The display is activated by a simple press of a button and remains visible for 15 seconds.

Six decades of engineering, combined with today’s state-of-the-art technology, has resulted in a family of fluid heads so technically advanced that they seem virtually attuned to the operator.

Operation is exquisitely smooth, counterbalance is a breeze in any configuration, controls are easy to access and easy to operate.

Handcrafted from the finest high tech metal alloys and composites, they also offer a host of smart features. Patented drag controls allow various progressive and repeatable intensity levels in both Pan and Tilt modes. Versatile graduated dial-in counterbalance provides quick, precise and repeatable setups. Fluid modules are hermetically sealed for long life, and the heads themselves are finished in rugged black scratch-proof exteriors.

ALFA I AND ALFA II

Designed for today’s generation of lightweight ENG Video cameras, they provide fast and easy dynamic counterbalancing of cameras up to 16 lbs. (Alfa I) and 22 lbs. (Alfa II).

Weight is counterbalanced with a double spring module. When using with ultralight digital cameras, the spring module can be disengaged with the flip of a lever.

Alfa Dual Drag (DD) combines patented

"labyrinth" module with an advanced lubricated friction drag mechanism for infinitely variable precise settings.

Quick-release sliding plate combines with three presettable counterbalance tilt angles, allowing the camera to be perfectly balanced and easily mounted.

In Tilt mode, the "labyrinth" module and the lubricated friction are constantly coupled to ensure various drag levels. Simply adjust the ergonomic tilt knob.

In Pan mode, the damping system can be activated separately or simultaneously.

OFF, the lubricated friction mechanism works separately for Whip Pans, providing excellent smoothness and linear movement. ON, the lubricated friction and fluid module work simultaneously for super professional drag.

A continuously variable control knob provides consistent drag levels with the

DD system, activated either separately or simultaneously.

Comes equipped with a 95 mm Bowltype base and a telescopic handle.

SPIDER POD

Portable Tripod Riser and Standing Platform

Designed for professional videographers and news crews who need to raise their camera’s viewpoint, the unique Spider Pod elevates you and your tripod two feet — with speed and rock solid stability. With the Spider Pod you can now easily shoot above crowds and capture unobstructed, stable images. Large staging risers are often used as camera platforms. However, as you shift your footing, the camera and tripod may shake, producing an unstable video image. Add multiple shooters, or use the camera zoomed in with a long focal length, and the problem becomes significantly worse. The

Spider Pod eliminates all this by featuring a separate tripod riser and separate standing platform — providing rock solid support.

■ Unique design allows set up within 30 seconds

Supports all standard tripods with spreaders or feet

Optional shipping case available

Works with ENG or studio configured cameras

Tripod riser supports up to 200 pounds, the standing platform up to 300 pounds

EXPANSION WEB

The Expansion Web riser system is designed for those who need the portability of the Spider Pod, but require a larger standing area for cameras with studio controls. Based on a modular concept, the Expansion Web provides many advantages over a traditional riser. The 2 x 2´ square panels interlock in a variety of configurations to accommodate a myriad of shooting requirements.

■ Similar to the Spider Pod, the Expansion Web is separated from the tripod riser to eliminate any potential shake caused by operator movement. The modules form a platform large enough to accommodate a chair or stool for longer shooting times.

■ Portability makes the Expansion Web an ideal choice for remote broad-cast needs, corporate video departments and staging companies. It eliminates the need for a staging riser, sets up quickly and is easy to transport and store.

■ Constructed of high quality component materials, such as anodized aluminum and a carpeted slip-resistant surface. Each modular square is carefully designed to interlock with the others for a strong stable standing platform. The ability to interlock from all sides is the key to the Web’s versatility and portability.
