 Per specs issued by Sorensen Design the Graphlite is constructed of carbon fiber composite and has a 12 foot boom allowing for a lens height of up to 16 feet. The Graphlite head can operate in both an under-slung or over-slung position. The second user system we have for sale comes with 15 metres of track.

 We would not recommend the Graphlite for live action, however it is an ideal rig for stop motion. MRMC can rewire and upgrade the electronics with the option to run the Graphlite from Flair.
