Innovision Optics unveils new pan and tilt head, support column
Innovision Optics has introduced the Birdy Pan & Tilt head and Bird’s Eye Camera Support Column.
Birdy is a lightweight remote-controlled pan and tilt head that accommodates cameras weighing up to 10lbs. The head is capable of both panning and tilting a full 360 degrees. Operated by joystick control, the system has a pan speed range of 360 degrees in 8 seconds (at 45 degrees per second) and a tilt speed of 26 degrees per second.
The new Bird’s Eye lightweight, portable camera support column is well suited for situations in which the shoot calls for an overhead elevated camera position. Weighing less than 50lbs and constructed of sturdy galvanized steel, the Bird’s Eye four-stage telescoping center column expands to a height of 16ft. This enables camera height adjustment from 4ft to 16ft. Dual locking bolts in each stage anchor the extended column firmly into position.
