Designed to support 35mm film cameras as well as video configurations the Sigma fluid head combines a patented counterbalance system with an advanced damping module for both pan and tilt functions.
The continuously variable counterbalance system is ideally suited to operate with cameras featuring a high center of gravity and weighing from 45 - 100lbs. The frictionless damping modules, features a new patented "planetary" design, which provides for extraordinary performances over an extended temperature range, with smooth and precise movements together with a linear response in any critical environment. And for ease of use the counterbalance and damping system are connected to easy-to-read digital readouts, allowing quick set up even in low light situations.
The Sigma interfaces directly with any Mitchell or 150mm bowl base and can be easily mounted on top of all existing pedestals featuring the 4-hole bores. Comes provided with an integral soft grip-carrying handle, two telescopic pan bars and illuminated spirit level.
Continuously Adjustable Counterbalance System
The Sigma features continuously adjustable counterbalance system allows the cameraperson to fine-tune an extremely wide range of cameras featuring a high center of gravity and weighing from 45 - 100 lbs throughout a tilt range of -/+ 90 degrees. Calibrated with a variable adjustment connected to a digital readout display, the counterbalance-operating knob is conveniently located on the side of the head.
Pan and Tilt Control
Features frictionless damping modules, with a new patented "planetary" design, which provide extraordinary performances over an extended temperature range, with smooth and precise movements together with a linear response in any critical environment. Located on the rear panel the continuously variable fluid control knobs are easy to reach and have the benefit of a digital readout, which allows the cameraman for a quick set-up even in low light conditions.
Built-in illuminated spirit level allows easy set-up even in low light conditions
