Motorized panoramic head
Motorized panoramic head is aimed at enabling video or photo camera to turn accurately along X and Y axes. Cog belt transmission allows to minimize the noise level. Motors built into the head ensures accuracy of movements not influenced by torsional strength or camera balancing.
The compact closed design ensures long uninterrupted work of the head both indoors and outdoors.
Camera is fastened to the head by standard 3/8″ or 1/4″ bolts. The head construction allows to install the removable head platform onto the camera, as well as additional accessories (e.g. external microphones), and move with them.
The head is fastened through the through-hole by an M12 bolt. It is the most convenient fastening system for every type of camera crane or dolly.
The head is powered by means of external power supply. Additional equipment is provided for battery-operated configurations (the head can be powered by built-in batteries, V-Mount batteries and several types of SONY rechargeable batteries) and for using power supply from the camera.
The head is illuminated to make the camera mounting easy when the light is insufficient. The illumination is turned on by the lower switch.
Advantages: The product is a refined, accurate multi-purpose tool which can be installed on any camera crane or dolly. You will appreciate the quietness and smoothness of its motion and minimalismof external equipment.

WIRELESS REMOTE CONTROL
The remote control is powered by two AA batteries. It has a switch and a LED showing the on/off status. The average battery life is about 400 hours of uninterrupted work. The internal inverter discharges the battery competely, which is why using rechargeable batteries is not advisable: complete discharge will damage them.
The rotational speed increases when pressing the joystick down. This is convenient for moving the head at a high speed while working comfortably at a low speed.
At power on, the joystick is automatically zero-calibrated, so that it will not rotate if it gets damaged.
The remote control has an advanced data communications protocol. It uses addressing, which prevents the influence of noise and other devices. Every camera head has its unique address. Several heads can work in the same location without interfering with each other.
The remote control has an intuitive design. First, slide open the back battery compartment lid and insert the batteries. Close the lid. Switch on the power supply on the front panel without touching the joystick. The LED will light up. The remote control is ready for work. Engraved arrows show the direction of movement in the camera frame. When the shooting is over, turn off the power supply.
