The Orion DVC200 was introduced by ProAm USA, a US designer and manufacturer of film and video equipment that was founded in 2003. ProAm USA released the first tool-less camera crane in 2004 and continues to produce innovative cranes and jibs.

Auto & Manual Tilting
The Orion DVC200 features automatic leveling to keep your camera facing ahead while booming up and down. Enable Manual Tilt for more precise control of the camera, creating compound movements.
- Auto tilt keeps the camera pointing straight at all times.
- Manual tilt allows the camera to move independent of the crane.
- Create Hollywood style shots with independent crane and camera moves.
Out of the box, the Orion DVC200 Crane mounts to your sturdy tripod head. The base of the tripod mount has both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads to attach your quick release plate.
If your tripod head doesn't have the capacity to support the crane, you may elect to purchase the 3/8 Inch Bearing Mount option so that you can mount it directly to your tripod legs.
Another option is the economical Crane Stand featuring an all aluminum mounting bracket.
(Bearing Mount and Crane Stand options are sold separately.)

Adds so much production value to the shots. I even use it on some regular hand held shots to help hold steady.
However, my one only biggest complaint is the flex on the mounting bracket where you attach the camera.
There is considerable flex after mounting a DSLR rig to it. In airplane terms: it rolls clockwise. In other words it tilts to the right, since it hangs to the right of the main arm. So the camera, when facing forward, looking down the length of the arm, is always off level and tilted to the right.
I have tried bending and flexing it back, but it always relaxes back after mounting equipment to it.
The simple solution was to level the tripod that the crane is mounted, to compensate for the slight angle, but alas, as soon as you swing and pan in either direction, the angle is worse in one way or the other.
The obvious solution would be to mount an adjustable head on the bracket, which is what I've done. However, now I need to buy another tripod head so I can do the quick release thing from crane to tripod without having to unscrew everything back and forth every time I switch between supports.
There really shouldn't be any flex there at all. Aside from that, a good product.
Sturdy construction, no flex, smooth as silk, and stable! I ordered the suggested stand in addition to this jib because it just makes sense. Everything is sturdy and the crane has a wonderful matte finish that just says BC went the distance. Everything fits together as planned without drama or buyers regret. I'm 100% thrilled with both items.
The only thing that I don't like... No carrying case. This is such a great deal already, so I don't think anyone should be discouraged from buying it... as a note to BC Media... Bags are cheap to make, but hard to find. If you did that homework for me it would have just been that little extra step to show guys like me that you're covering all bases (no pun intended).
All together great! Send me some transport gear and I'm head over heels... :) I'd hate to scratch beauty with it banging around the trunk. Keep up the hard work guys!
Upon opening the crane and stand, I set it up and was blown away. I can't believe how high quality the product is and how high it will really go. I ordered it with the stand, it works with just a tripod but the stand build is actually really thick (not clunky), I was unsure about ordering the stand but I'm glad I did. It's worth the $60
The DVC200 is an 8' jib and I thought it wouldn't be high enough and I would need to buy the extension eventually but 8' plus the stand which expands a lot, the jib gets way higher than I thought. I haven't measured the maximum height yet but I guarantee it's at least 12'
I did my homework all over the web, I came down to the proam and the indiesystem jib but I decided on the proam because I believed they gave you more for your money and I was right, it really is an incredible deal. No I don't work for them but after this I just might apply.
