*** Precision Mini Pan/Tilt/Roll Head ***
The SFH-50 shown with the Arri Alexa and RED
The new roll option on the SFH-50 Pan Tilt head offers what MRMC believe to be the worlds most compact Pan Tilt Roll head capable of carrying a wide range of professional cameras including the Arri Alexa, Red One & Epic, Canon 5D & 7D. The SFH-50 head released last year is proving to be very popular and has already found its way into a variety of locations and applications, including being used in Antarctica for wild life filming, being used as a remote head for car mounted filming, filming a new 3D animated feature and a variety of standard motion control and remote head applications.
The SFH-50 head is slightly bigger than its counter-part the SFH-30 Pan Tilt head but is designed specifically to cater for slightly larger cameras and to allow the option of a 360 degree roll. It really is compact but superbly strong by any standard. We don’t believe there is any other head on the market that offers the range of motion or payload or high-precision in such a small size and additionally at such a low cost.
As you can see from the photos of it with the Alexa and the RED, it carries the large cameras with aplomb, and in the short video footage from the Interbee exhibition in Japan, it can also be used with track and does equally well with long ENG type cameras and zooms. (with some minor restriction).
The head is designed to adapt to different uses, whether on a crane as a remote head, on a tripod or track for timelapse footage, in studio or on location for motion control work, it will fulfill any task with ease. The controllers can include wireless PDAs, Handwheels, Joysticks, Pan-bars or full motion control software, and that includes any motion control software, be it our own Flair software (recommended), Kuper or Lynx.
