Video 25 Plus Fluid Head
Frictionless Leak Proof Fluid Damping
Frictionless leak proof fluid damping with seven levels of drag, for perfect pictures while panning, without jerks and vibrations. Identical across both horizontal and vertical planes, and allows complete disengagement of drag for fast panning.
Touch & Go Quick Release / Automatic Locking System, for quick set up without having to bother screwing the camera to head and then having to unscrew it again. Also features a safety lock lever that prevents inadvertent disengagement of the camera latch.
Sliding Balance Plate
Sliding camera mount and plate with a 4.4-inch sliding range, makes a fast balancing system for the camera and ensures perfect balance across the horizontal plane.
Dynamic Counterbalancing System
The 18 Step dynamic counterbalancing system, with 9-stage fine-tuning in half steps compensates for torques as the camera tilts. This prevents the camera from inadvertently tipping, and ensures that it is positioned securely at any tilt angle. These features can be activated and deactivated individually.
Combi Pedestal System
Air Pressurized Pneumatic Column
The pedestal is anchored by a pneumatic column. The system works on the principle of compressed air, which acts as a counterweight and allows for quick height adjustments.
When in its folded position, the unit can easily be carried by one person, making this pedestal truly a "go-anywhere" piece of equipment no camera operator should be without.
Crab and steer movement is achieved by using the provided detachable Steering Ring. Toggle between one and three wheel controls with ease.
Wheel Overload System
Each wheel case has an overload protection mechanism, realigning the wheels again after just half a turn of the steering wheel. All bearings and guides are maintenance-free.
