Vinten unveils new range of Vision pan, tilt heads
Vinten launched a new range of Vision lightweight pan and tilt heads at the NAB Show.
With a new look, the four new heads cater to a broad range of professional DV camcorders from 4.4lbs to 32.0lbs. The heads offer new V motifs and tough non-reflective black coating for discrete use on location.
The new Vision heads offer ergonomic improvements including new placement of Vinten’s multiturn Perfect Balance counterbalance adjuster from the rear to the side, where it is unfettered by camera overhang.
The leveling bubble has been repositioned and stands out with a new bold, blue switched LED for quick, accurate, convenient set up in low-light situations. The restyled pan and tilt brake knobs have a robust and user-friendly design. Similarly, the multiturn infinite drag adjusters are easier to use.
