Rhino Camera Gear SKU0089 overview

  • 1Description

Liven up your time-lapse and real-time motion shots with the Rhino Arc Motorized Pan Head. Designed to integrate with an existing Rhino Motion system, the Rhino Arc lets you add panning to your linear movement to create dynamic arcing or sweeping shots. Installing directly on your EVO Slider carriage, the compact device weighs only about 1 lb, yet supports camera setups weighing up to 15 lb. Its internal motor is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery.

The Rhino Arc connects directly to the Rhino Motion controller using an included cable, allowing you to control both linear and pan motion using a single controller. An OLED screen on the Rhino Arc provides quick visual verification that both devices are paired together. For creating time-lapse videos, a built-in intervalometer is used to trigger your camera's shutter when connected to the camera using a separately available shutter release cable.

    Rhino Camera Gear SKU0089 reviews

    Arc Motorized Pan Head for Rhino Motion is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wobbly I waited four months and the actual unit was not close to the quality of the slider. It's actually loose and when I contacted the company they said that was to be expected, part of the spec. They gave no explanation but my thinking is that they mis-engineered this and yet couldn't stop production. Also the programming of the pans is clunky and requires a total reset for any alteration. In all a product that is not ready for release made by the company whose slider is the best. Go figure.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had to return and replace for a new one The first time I used my Arc with a Sony A6300 for a 1-hour time lapse, as the pan went through it's path for that hour, it jerked 2 or 3 times as if the internal gearing had skipped a gear tooth or something. I explained this to their support person and they suspected it was a weight distribution problem, which was ridiculous given the small head and camera I was using. Once I sent them a video of me replicating the issue, they paid to have the defective one sent back and a replacement sent to me (yet to receive it...waiting since last week). I agree with the other review in that this product is not yet ready for primetime. Their support appears to be just one person who, although is very nice, doesn't appear to have the knowledge and experience of actually shooting time lapses. The price and simplicity attracted me to the Rhino products for adding motion to my time lapses, but now I'm finding that it may have been the wrong move.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not quite as impressive as other Rhino Products First, let me say that I have been thoroughly impressed with many other products that I've purchased from Rhino (EVO 24 with Motion Controller, Flywheel, 48 Rails, even the carrying case is great). Perhaps they've set my expectations too high. I haven't had any of the problems the previous two reviewers posted about mechanical issues. Mine seems pretty solid and moves very smoothly so far. I'm just baffled by the noise coming from it (especially considering how quiet the actual motion controller is). The strangest part of it is that it even makes noise even when it's not rotating in either direction (not quite as loud, but why when it's still?). It's not that loud and it hasn't been picked up by my external mics that are closer to my subjects (a good 6 feet or more away), but it just seems like it should be a little quieter. Setting it up is pretty easy and it's really convenient in the end. For what I need it for, I'm very happy. Would be nice, though, if the motion controller would keep your settings saved after it turns off. Not sure if that can be fixed in the firmware. I hope so, even if it means keeping a micro SD card in it to do so.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Amazing unit overall. Love the functionality and integration with Rhino Motion. My one issue has been with the artificial limiting of the rotation to 360 degrees. Seeing as how this is a software limitation (as the unit resets to zero on turning it on therby proving its not a physical limitation) I'm hoping a future firmware update fixes this in the unlikely instance that you might overstep the limit by 10-20 degrees on a move. I also wish the unit motor was a BIT stronger and more capable of slanted (un-leveled) operation.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Many Problems I had preordered this product along with a whole slider with motion system from Rhino. Firstly, the company said that I would receive the unit about a half a year after the expected shipping time before it actually was delivered. When I got the unit it worked seamlessly for the first test. Every test other than that I saw jerking motions from left to right at the same points every time the slider would make a motorized slide. The company then explained that they would ship me another unit. I got the new unit and had the same problem. The company then would not refund me the money for the unit because I had thrown the broken one out, even though there was no indication that I had to send the broken unit back in the first place. Long story short, this product is not worth it and the company communication is just as bad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A now integral part of my kit I was really nervous about this item, after hearing lots of folks having issues with theirs, but I'm relieved to say (after three weeks using it) I've yet to run into a single issue. It has served me well across 3 different shoots so far, using my DSLR as well as my kitted Ursa Mini 4.6K with zero issues. Beautiful unit. Really adds an incredible new dimension to interviews and all of my regular slides. I was at a point where I was hesitant to waste time/resources bringing along my big slider, when I can recreate the same moves with just a little trial/error with my Steadicam. But now that the Arc adds such an amazing, subtle edge to the move, it makes it a huge attraction for me during my shoots. Highly recommended! If you get a bad unit, swap it out and try again, because the good ones ARE out there, and they're well worth it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost great I'm a little disappointed with its lack of solidity. The turntable seems to not be very sturdy. Even a small rig on it wobbles. It seems like a design issue. The platter seems to only be supported from the center. A ring of bearings around the circumference would make this a winner.
