The Vinten 3D wedge adaptor is designed to facilitate the proper balancing of under/through beamsplitter 3D rigs on Vinten pan and tilt heads.
By offsetting the head’s level position by a few degrees the balance mechanism produces a back-torque when the camera is level, this enables the centre of gravity of the payload (3D rig, lenses and cameras) to be forward of the tilt axis.
Key features and benefits:
- Balances rigs which cannot be mounted to a conventional head in a balanced position due to physical restrictions
- Allows more clearance for the under-slung camera therefore increases downward tilt available
- Quick release of rig, wedge assembly from head

V4091-0001 – 3D wedge for heavy duty Vinten Vector heads (950)
V4091-0002 - 3D wedge for medium duty Vinten Vector/Vision heads (430, 250)
