Cartoni Maxima Series Video Head Overview

The MAXIMA 30 Flat Base Fluid Head from Cartoni includes all the advantages of the Cartoni MAXIMA Fluid Head, but in a compact size. The pan and tilt fluid movements are smooth with progression, going from almost freewheeling to an extremely consistent maximum drag. The wing counterbalance will assist any camera with payloads ranging from 7 to 66 lb with a smooth response throughout the entire ±90° range and can reach up to 88 lb at 100mm CG.

For ease of use, the digital read-out indicates counterbalance, pan and tilt fluid settings at a glance. The head also features an illuminated bubble level. To make the MAXIMA 30 user friendly, the pan and tilt brakes are both placed on the left side of the head, as well as the camera plate latch, which can be activated with one hand to disengage the safety lock and free the camera plate completely.

The camera plate stage accepts all industry standard plates as ARRI, RED, and more, with a sliding run of 140mm. It also features four rosettes attachment for pan bars. The standard configuration comes with right telescopic pan bar and a left front pan handle.
