Compact, Lightweight High Speed Camera Robot
Bolt Jr. is a compact, lighter weight high-speed camera robot that’s an agile, smaller option than the full scale MRMC Bolt. The Bolt Jr. is an ideal solution where space, weight, mobility and budget are key.
Small But Mighty
Capable of impressive and sophisticated high-speed, automated image capture, the compact Bolt Jr. is ideal for working in small studio spaces.
Weighing only 110 kg, half that of the Bolt, the Bolt Jr. is a portable motion control option that can be set up and ready for action in under an hour, making it an obvious choice for use on location.
BOLT JR. HIGHLIGHTS
- Small, light high-speed robotic arm
- Only 110kg weight (under half weight of the Bolt)
- Camera payload up to 12kg
- Can be used as both camera rig or model mover
- Track speed in excess of 3m/sec
- Arm reach 1.2m
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 Jr. On Track
To add another dimension of movement for the Bolt Jr, you can run the high speed camera robot on a track. Run the Bolt Jr. along a track and follow any object, person, or landscape – giving much more flexibility in terms of visual creativity. With rapid acceleration, the Bolt Jr. on Track can reach 3 meters per second. Additionally, through MRMCs Flair software, you have programmable acceleration profiles so you can consistently reach and maintain desired speeds with pinpoint accuracy.

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.
