Cartoni Master Series Video Head Overview

In broadcast and studio configurations, the Master 30 Flat Base Fluid Head from Cartoni covers the needs of video shooters using cameras weighing from 7 to 66 lb. With a low center of gravity configuration such as with teleprompter, the Master 30 can hold cameras as heavy as 88 lb. The fluid module, in both pan and tilt modes, ensures smooth movements. With accurate starts and stops, the drag system allows a wide variety from almost freewheeling in fast action movements to maximum resistance for long focal shoots.

Counterbalance performs perfect balance at any angle from 0 to ±90°
Operating knobs and levers are conveniently located and easy to reach with a special care for ergonomics
Head comes equipped with dual telescopic pan bars, illuminated spirit level and digital readouts for drag control and counterbalance settings

Does this have a Mitchell Base?

Asked by: Andrew
It does not, this head has a 4-Bolt Flat Base. For a Mitchell Base from Cartoni you would need to look at the Maxima Film Style Fluid Action Head, B&H # CAM570, instead.
