Vinten Camera Supports 2009 - Perfect Balance

Perfect Balance Perfectly Balanced Pan and Tilt Heads Why is Perfect Balance the best solution? Most manufacturers offer counterbalance systems that cannot produce the exact amount of torque required. Figure 1 shows that the amount of torque required as a result of tilting the camera has a precise but non-linear pattern. This means that Why? The weight does not become heavier but the amount of effort (torque) the out of balance effect is most required to support the weight increases prominent on heads manufactured as the weight is moved further from the with linear counterbalance systems. elbow (pivot point). Even where a manufacturer has included continuously variable counterbalance, This explanation is also true for a if it is only approximate the camera will camera that is tilted. The further it is not be completely controlled throughout tilted from the horizontal, the more the tilt range torque is required to prevent the of the head (see Fig.2). camera falling. Why is balance important? Imagine the scenario: a person holds a weight at shoulder height with their arm bent and close to their body; the further they extend their arm from their elbow, the harder it becomes to support the weight.

This means: p Consistent movement and easy positioning of the camera at any angle p Perfect shots captured with minimal effort

The Vinten Perfect Balance system is easy to set and offers infinite adjustment, providing precisely the right amount of torque necessary to counterbalance the camera throughout the head’s tilt range.

This torque is produced by the pan and tilt head’s counterbalance system. If it does not match the camera weight and angle exactly the camera will either fall away or return to centre.

Minimal effort is required to move the camera; the camera operator can even go hands-free. Vinten’s infinite adjustment allows exactly the right amount of torque to be generated at whatever angle the camera is positioned. Compensating for the effect of gravity, Vinten’s Perfect Balance makes the camera appear weightless in the hands of the camera operator. And, as it balances perfectly the drag control can be used for what it is intended to do: shot framing and control, rather than helping to balance the camera.

1 Slide the camera onto the head using the Vinten slide plate and position it so that the camera’s centre of gravity sits over the centre of the head. 2 Reduce the tilt friction to its minimum. 3 Tilt the camera both forward and back; if the camera is correctly positioned it will either fall away from, or return to the horizontal at an even rate either side of the head’s top dead centre. 4 If the camera falls away from the centre position, turn the Perfect Balance knob clockwise. If the camera springs back towards the centre, turn the Perfect Balance knob anticlockwise. Perfect Balance is achieved when the camera remains stationary in any tilted position.

Perfectly Balanced Pedestals Perfect Balance is an equally important part of Vinten pedestals.

How to achieve 180° Perfect Balance in 4 simple steps:

Perfect Balance ensures that the pedestal column system consistently offers the exact support required for the camera operator to raise and lower the camera with minimal effort.

Vinten pedestals are used all over the world because Perfect Balance enables the operator to concentrate on the shot and not on the pedestal.

Vinten Camera Supports 2009 - Drag Technology

Drag Technology If the action changes out of shot Vinten’s patented drag systems allow instant whip pan movement without any manual reduction of the drag. This is ideal for applications such as sports coverage which require lower drag for following the close action and higher drag for longer shots.

Why is drag important? In order to control the camera, resistance to movement (drag) is needed to prevent overshooting, dampen out unwanted movements and to make minor adjustment virtually impossible to detect. Why is Vinten drag technology the best solution? Whilst drag is essential, it can have a negative effect if the system is poorly designed. All too often (see Fig.1) drag systems are designed so that resistance to movement increases proportionally with the speed of pan or tilt. Where this is the case, whip pan becomes impossible and minute framing adjustments difficult to achieve.

Vinten pan and tilt heads also offer infinite, rather than stepped adjustment. This enables the camera operator to select the drag level that suits their working requirements, rather than a pre-determined level which may not.

This means:

p Simple, infinite adjustment without steps

Vinten drag systems are designed to offer complete camera control at any level of movement. Figure 1 shows how Vinten drag systems provide a steep increase in friction at the start of any movement. This ensures that maximum control is gained quickly: essential for slow moves and fine framing adjustments. As the movement speed increases a shallower friction curve is created, enabling the pan and tilt head to remain light and easy to move whilst the shot continues to be controlled.

Picture quality relies as much upon the rigidity of the camera support as it does on the smoothness of the pan and tilt head and accuracy of the counterbalance. Vinten offer a range of Pozi-Loc tripods (pages 27 to 29) that are designed to achieve optimum picture quality for those shooting with lightweight camera configurations, as well as Heavy Duty tripods (pages 30 to 31) that make the perfect shot possible with heavier camera configurations up to 140 kg / 308.6 lbs. All Vinten tripods are precisely manufactured using the highest quality materials and are designed to optimise torsional rigidity without compromising operational essentials such as weight, reliability, maintenance and speed of set-up. All Vinten tripods are precisely manufactured using the highest quality materials.

1. One of the Spread-Loc arms incorporates a dislocation feature, ensuring that the spreader will survive excess force and eliminating accidental damage.

2. Controlled by a central lock knob, the SpreadLoc arms are geared to move together. A single turn controls all three legs for fast repositioning. In addition a unique ratchet mechanismprovides an audible warning that the spreader is locked, but still allows the system to be closed for rapid repositioning.

Vinten spreaders provide stability and camera control in any situation.

Vinten has developed the Vector 950 Active pan and tilt head system to interface with the Canon Optical Shift Image Stabiliser (“Shift-IS”) technology. The result is a new stabilisation system for sports and events broadcasts. The Vector 950 Active features integral real-time digital electronic positioning for precise and accurate data, which communicates with the stabilisation systems of Canon’s DIGISUPER 100AF and DIGISUPER 86AF long-field zoom lenses. The result is that the intuitive and natural motions of the camera operator provide instant and active control of the Shift-IS stabilisation. The Vector 950 Active comes complete with a standard four bolt base, single telescopic pan bar and wedge adapter. It offers an increased capacity of up to 120 kg / 264 lbs providing perfectly balanced tilt.

By combining the characteristics of the TF drag control with infinite perfect balance adjustment, the effort needed to control the effect of a heavy, moving camera payload remains constant, predictable and minimal- not a major distraction.

Vinten Camera Supports 2009 - Osprey Light

Osprey Light The Osprey Light is designed for the growing number of small studios that require the quality of on shot movement synonymous with Vinten pedestals. The Osprey Light is a 40 kg / 88.2 lbs capacity pedestal, with crabbing base capability. This single stage pedestal also has an on-shot stroke of 54 cm / 21.2 “and a significantly improved wheel braking mechanism that eliminates the flat spots that can ruin a rolling shot. Perfect Balance is easy to achieve in any situation as the Osprey Light has an integral manual pump as well as an inlet valve for use with external pressure sources. The Osprey Light is ideal for studios that require a lightweight pedestal which does not compromise functionality.

The time taken for set-up and breakdown is wasteful, which is why Vinten have developed their range of Quickfix adaptors. Constructed entirely from corrosion resistant components, Quickfix adaptors are ideal for OB applications.

1. A simple lever operation secures and releases the pan and tilt head in seconds, leaving more time to capture the action. 2. The Quickfix profile is incorporated into the base of current pan and tilt heads. (Screw on ring adaptor available for older heads) 3. The locking system will not release the head until the safety catch is opened.
