The Vector 950 offers an increased capacity of up to 120 kg and at this payload provides ±60° of perfectly balanced tilt, allowing the safe control of today's long OB lenses.
The compact and durable Vector 950 head incorporates a wealth of features. Set-up is aided through the inclusion of a tilt deadlock, Quickfix groove in the base, retractable carry handle and illuminated controls, as well as an LCD display that offers a 24 hour clock, stopwatch and counterbalance readout that can be set for known payloads. The pan and tilt brakes are positioned at the rear of the head, making them easily accessible, and the camera plate can be simply adjusted forward and back using a retractable, ergonomically designed adjuster.
The Vector 950 features TF Drag, allowing outstanding whip pan control and an extensive operational temperature range from-40°C through to +60°C. The high output tilt drag modules also provide superb holding force and enhanced control in windy conditions. Combining these characteristics with infinite Perfect Balance adjustment ensures that the effort needed to control the effect of a heavy, moving camera payload remains constant and predictable, eliminating a major distraction during filming.
