Bescor MP-101 reviews

MP-1AC Motorized Pan & Tilt Head Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works excellently! We use this product in church. We have a small camcorder mounted on the wall; the camcorder is mounted on this product. We use the 50 ft and 10 ft extensions to bring the controller to a controlling station about 50 ft away. The head is quite responsive to the controller, and we like the fact that it gives tilt as well as panning ability. Of note also is that there are options for power. You can use the included adapter, or use batteries, whichever works for you. A highly recommended product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Made for very light cams ONLY I bought 1 for the top of my 'Eyes in the Air' tripod for shooting sports. It worked ok for a bit but then would only pan and tilt down, not up. Thought it was just a simple malfunction of the specific unit. Did an RMA and got another one. Same thing - now won't move in any direction, so now need another RMA and am getting a different motorized pan/tilt head. I think because the Bescor is made for those coke-can camcorders, not the prosumer models that are heavier (Sony HXR-NX100 or heavier). It says it supports 6lbs, but don't believe it. It's made for those lighter cams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment Was hesitant with this purchase. But I'm one happy videographer now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well! Pan/Tilt heads are generally very expensive.   But most the time, you just need something simple and inexpensive to get the shot you need, such as a camera high off the ground that cant be reached.  The Bescor is excellent!  It runs from 4 AAs for much longer than needed for all-day work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Okay...but I returned it. I know this device will have a use for some people. However, for me, it did not. I purchased it with the idea of using it to do Broll for products. Small items like, routers, NAS devices, PC parts, etc. I wanted something that could pan/tilt flawlessly without making the footage shaky or the speed inconsistent. For the most part, it worked. Aside from the few random times the motors with get a little glitchy, it was able to provide a smooth, constant speed when getting my shots. The issue is, for my use, it moves way to fast. Even on the slowest setting it moves almost twice as fast as I would want it. The footage is unusable at the speed options it has. If it had an option to cut that speed in half, I would have forgave the random glitches (they dont happen often tbh) and made it work... It could be used for outdoor shots though. The speed is fine if you are panning large areas. Or, if you are able to shoot in 60fps and slow it down 50%...but I dont have a 4k 60fps camera, only 30. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am going to buy another one I use this as a wide camera position where I really don't need a camera op. It works quiet well. It does shake a little while moveing but I don't use it for traveling or panning I set then take the shot. I wish the speed was a little faster. Don't use it with batts. Use with ac supply

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A remote camera man! This motorized P&T head is excellent. Very quiet and does a nice job of both panning and tilting. I use it for Wirecast productions to line up the distance shots without having to get up and physically reposition the camera. I am very happy with my purchase so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works great We need to record meetings for web streaming so we mounted a webcam on top of the tan / tilt head and now have full coverage of the meeting room.
