VZ-MC50 Remote Pan and Tilt Head for Cameras up to 12 lbs
Quality Design and Construction - Precision CNC machining, top-shelf components, rigorous parts inspection, and thorough individual unit testing ensure grade A quality. Borrowing from the design of our classic best-selling MC100, the MC50 is a compact, lower-cost, lighter head for the latest generation of small HD cameras. Built upon a sterling reputation for bulletproof, high-performance remote pan/tilt heads, we back the MC50 with our full two-year warranty.
A Powerful Tool - Total remote camera operation becomes possible with the MC50 system. Whether it is mounted on a jib or crane, placed on a tripod as a 'robotic cameraman,' or in a fixed location in an auditorium or church, you will have full capability to pan and tilt 360 degrees from the slowest sustained crawl to the rapid moves needed to follow the action. No jib is complete without a motorized pan/tilt head, and the MC50's light weight, universal mounting base, and intuitive control box make it a breeze to set up and operate.
An Investment in Production Value - The MC50's competitive price is considerably lower than units of comparable quality and capability. The cost of renting a professional pan/tilt head alone makes it worth considering. With the MC50 at your disposal, productions become more expansive, dynamic, and "high-end", so much so that every time you use it you are increasing not only the artistic quality of the work, but also its dollar-value to prospective clients.
Utilizing the same rugged and field tested electronics and controls that have made the MC100 so popular for years, the MC50 is the lighter duty choice of professionals using smaller HD and DV cameras.
Convenience - The MC50 is specifically tailored for smaller DV and HD cameras under 12 lbs. The MC50 head mounts to nearly any jib or tripod and can be integrated into permanent AV systems in studios or churches. The custom lightweight carrying case with die-cut foam insert will protect the MC50 for storage or transport via air or land. A modular architecture makes parts replacement and repair simple, and VariZoom's renowned customer service is second to none.
