Matthews CAM Tank Overview

The CAM Tank Mount from Matthews is used with all large format camera plates or directly mounts to any large or medium format camera equipped with 3/8"-16 mounting holes. It is designed for low shots, without taking away your ability to pan and tilt the camera. It is also used to achieve dutch angles when mounted to a fluid head, or shots designed to be pointed straight down off of a fluid head on a tripod or jib. The bottom of the plate has 17 strategically placed 3/8"-16 tapped holes spaced 1" apart, complying with Motion Picture Industry Standards.

The system is CNC machined out of 6061 T6 aluminum, stainless steel hardware. The pan bearing uses a machined polyoxymethylene, delrin disk, which self-lubricates and has an endurance rating 100x. The tilt system uses 4 premium NSK deep grooved ball bearings. Both pan and tilt functions come with brakes for lock off shots and camera safety.
