Bolt High Speed Camera Robot
The Bolt High-Speed Camera Robot is the fastest of its kind – capturing images in crisp focus that would be impossible by hand or any other method. The bolt adds an entirely new perspective to filming – whether shooting commercials, tabletop work, film or television.
High Speed Capture
From a standstill to full high-speed motion and back to a complete stop in fractions of a second, the Bolt Cinebot™ rig captures the fastest action with absolute precision. Capable of horizontal and vertical movement speeds of up to 2 metres per second, and a 180-degrees of rotation in a 1 second, the Bolt can keep up with almost anything.
- High-speed robotic arm
- Camera payload up to 20kg
- Track speeds up to 5m/sec
- Arm reach 2m
- Max Height 3.5m
- Can be used as both camera rig or model mover
Industry Standard Software
Flair is MRMC’s premier motion control software. Designed to give exceptional command over camera movement, Flair precisely controls up to 500 axes of motion and interfaces seamlessly with CGI packages. Flair is the tool that makes your vision reality.
Bolt On Track
To add another dimension of movement for the Bolt, you can run the high speed camera robot on a track. Follow any object, person, or landscape to give much more flexibility in terms of visual creativity. Capable of speeds of up to 5 metres per second, execute any number of complex camera movements with pinpoint accuracy for new levels of dynamic high-speed tracking shots.

Flair precisely controls up to 500 axes of motion and is fully compatible with all of our motion control rigs, heads and accessories.
A natural and intuitive way of controlling a motion control head, Pan Bars can be used in isolation or conjunction with other axis controllers, and movements can be recorded and accurately played back as required.
Frame your shot and accurately record manual camera movements for repeated playback in Flair. Compatible with all MRMC Motion Control heads and rigs, and assignable in Flair to control any axis of motion, the MRMC balanced handwheels have a very fluid feel just as top DoPs and directors would expect. Additional standard built-in features like electronic gearing/scaling and direction adjustment make the handwheels a perfect accessory for all rigs.
HAND HELD BOX
The Hand Held Box, or Jog Box, is a remote unit that connects to a Flair controlled rig, giving the user the freedom to move around the studio when inputting moves. Users can configure the Hand Held Box to individual requirements.
Gain accurate manual control of the focus and aperture of your lens. Use the Focus/Iris Controller together with the MSA-20 Hand-wheels or Flair Motion Control software to record and playback lens movements.
Manually control the focal length of your lens with the Zoom Controller. Use together with the MSA-20 Handwheels or Flair Motion Control software to record and playback the zoom motion.
Use Bloop Lights to mark specific frames with a bright flash of light during shooting. The ‘blooped’ frame enables editors to match up angles from a multi-camera shoot quickly.
FOCUS/IRIS/ZOOM LENS CONTROL MOTORS
Playback programmed moves or record manual lens movements for later playback with these precision-machined, highly accurate lens control motors. Compatible with wide a variety of types and sizes of lenses.
Connect of your external equipment, such as lights, to the Flair Motion Control software using the Triggers Box. This simple solution allows you to trigger all of your equipment through Flair, giving you full, accurate control of every aspect of your shoot.
Connect the rig or Flair software to the different types of camera to enable control of on/off, synchronisation and other camera functions.
