Vinten is introducing a new addition to their acclaimed Vision series, with the worldwide launch of the VISION 6 at NAB 2000. A refined, lightweight and compact pan & tilt head, the Vision 6 has been specifically designed to meet the growing demand for a high performance, flexible pan & tilt head to support today’s portable digital cameras.
Appealing to a broad range of applications, with a counterbalance range of 4.5 to 10 kg (9.9 - 22 lbs), the Vision 6 is the lightest Vision head in the range, weighing less than 2.5kg (5.3 lbs). With a maximum payload capacity of 10 kg, the Vision 6 can simply and effectively balance a wide variety of new lightweight cameras, utilising the unique Vision ‘perfect balancing system’, enabling you to position the pan & tilt head at any point, and just leave it - there is no ‘fall away’.
The Vision 6 also features an illuminated levelling bubble for quick and easy set-up especially in low-light situations, together with a true ±90° of perfectly balanced camera movement throughout the full range of pan & tilt.
The Vision 6 incorporates a calibrated, fully variable LF drag mechanism which is a progressive, fluid drag system, allowing in-built ‘on demand’ whip pan capability and precision movement with total control throughout the shot.
Says Simon Derry, Managing Director of Vinten Broadcast "Launching the Vision 6 is key for Vinten, particularly at a time when camera development is moving so rapidly. We have to continue with our philosophy of being pioneers in camera support product development. Vinten have always listened and responded to market needs and we aim to expand our open approach to develop the highest level of quality product and customer service worldwide."
Vision 6 systems are available with a single or two-stage tripod option in both aluminium and carbon fibre, and you can choose between torque-safe or toggle clamp leg locks.
