iFootage M1-III Overview

The M1-III Mini Crane from iFootage is a compact, portable jib arm featuring lightweight carbon-fiber construction, a telescoping square-arm tube, and multiple mounting options. Its square tube design helps to minimize potential shaking during operation. The M1-III has a maximum payload of 33 lb in standard mode and 22 lb in low-angle mode. The main jib arm and the counterweight arm each have one telescoping stage (two sections) with locking thumb-lever knobs. Standard barbell weights (available separately) may be used as counterweights.

Mount your DSLR (or other small camera) on either of two included quick release plates: the M1 or the Motion X2. The M1 plate has both a flat camera plate and a ball mount, enabling use of a fluid head (with a 60 or 75mm ball). The Motion X2 plate is used with micro cameras or when using wide- angle lenses. Both the arm base and the camera base incorporate 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 holes for mounting accessories.

The adjustable tilt-damping knob, the tilt lock, and the pan drag function give you added control over your crane shots. For programmable moves, the M1-III can be used with the iFootage Motion X2 or other motion control systems.

Note:
Low-mode use requires the M1 Low Profile Quick-Release Adapter (available separately).
Counterweights are not included.

question

How does it do with Benro s8 video head and the C3573F Series 3 CF Tripod?
Asked by: kevin w.
The Benro S8 and C3573F tripod has a load capacity of 17.6 pounds. This crane weighs 8 pounds and can accept a load up to 33 pounds. If you are using a camera that that is 9 pounds or less, the Benros S8 may still work. However if you are using a heavier camera you will want a heavy duty tripod. iFootage also has the Wild Bull T Series T5 Aluminum Alloy Tripod, which can handle a load up to 132 pounds.
