Product Description

Create amazing videos using this pan/tilt head, specially designed for DV, HDV, and broadcast cameras up to 16 pounds in weight. The 360-degree endless tilt and 360-degree panning movements are controlled by a precise, proportional joystick control, allowing you to remotely control your camera mounted on a crane arm, tripod, or in any other remote control situation. The smooth, variable speed is easily adjusted using the "Speed" and "Dead Spot" potentiometers on the joystick control unit. (The Dead Spot control determines the center band of the joystick where no motion occurs.) The joystick is operated in a handheld position or from a flat surface such as a tabletop, or can be attached to a boom arm of a jib. The universal adapter (included) provides four international adapters, child protection, safety shutter, power indicator, and surge protector. The adapters allow for use in nearly every country of the world.

THIS IS THE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH: Overall, a solid metal construction and it comes in a lovely padded case for storage and transport. The Joystick Control Box has a nice metal body, but it has a plastic adapter to attach it to the Boom arm of the camera jib/crane. This plastic may eventually crack or wear out after rigorous use. I think this should also be made out of metal or at least a tougher ABS plastic.
The pan/tilt MOTORS are a tad bit noisy, so RECORDING LIVE AUDIO when the Pan/Tilt head is in use, will present challenges. Of course, this wont be an issue if you are not recording live audio.
The pan/tilt head MOVEMENTS from the motors are, however, quite smooth.
The supplied cables are of industrial strength with professional connectors.
The Pan/Tilt head comes with 12V AC Adapter, and also a worldwide universal AC adapter, but you can also
operate it by purchasing and adapting a 12 or 24 volt DC Battery (like the Anton Bauer Trim Pac)using a 4-PIN XLR connector. Make sure the Positive and Negative polarity are properly connected.
You also get two spare fuses for the Joystick Control Box.
HINT: Secure the Pan/Tilt Head with a rope or strong wire when attaching (or removing) it from the Jib/Crane arm. This is just a wise precaution, so if the Pan/Tilt head were to accidentally slip from your hands, the rope or wire would hold it in place, preventing it from falling to the ground. I also advise that you use TWO bolts instead of one(if possible) to connect a large video camera to the pan /tilt head.
Its a great buy, and a good investment, SERIOUSLY...and will provide you with flexibility of viewpoint and dramatic presentation for videography. If the Pan/Tilt Head had quieter motors, it would easily get a 5+++++ rating. But it does the job and does it really good.

While this item was priced a bit higher from Amazon.com Prime I decided to keep it because of Amazon reliability as a vendor. The product is well made, worked out of the box. The only issue is that it is noisy and if you want to move around talking actors with good mikes, it may pose a problem. I would recommend this product and would purchase from Amazon and the vendor again.

The unit is well built and rock solid. I wish the joystick was of higher quality but it does the job as expected.
