Upgrade your shots with smooth, precise motion using the HeadPLUS v2 Pan and Tilt Head from edelkrone. This updated sturdy aluminum and steel head supports a maximum equipment load of 10 lb. It can be mounted onto a tripod with a 3/8"-16 screw or paired with the SliderPLUS, SliderPLUS PRO, SliderONE, Slide Module v2/v3, DollyONE, DollyPLUS, FocusPLUS PRO (new and old models), or the laser module for smooth, accurate, sharply focused pan-and-tilt sliding shots.

The v2 head can be precisely controlled via the edelkrone smartphone app or it can be moved manually. When mounted on the SliderPLUS or DollyPLUS, you can track objects automatically to produce dramatic motion shots such as parallax effects. The head can also be programmed for time-lapse or special effects shots by recording motions and repeating them.

You can also purchase the Laser Module which can record the distance and location of your subject, allowing you to track the object while in motion. The head also has a LANC port which allows you to trigger your camera's shutter with a separately available cable. The head folds flat, which makes it easy to store in a production bag. The HeadPLUS v2 also includes an L-bracket with 1/4"-20 mounting screw for your camera. You can power the unit with a separately available AC adapter or optional V-mount, Gold mount, LP-E6, or NP-F battery plates.

Sturdy Aluminum Design

The HeadPLUS v2 is made with CNC-machined aluminum and can hold an equipment load of up to 10 lb. It weighs under 5 lb and folds to fit in a bag.

Easy Manual or Auto Operation

The head requires no calibration and operates smoothly and silently. You can either program it for automated motion or operate it manually.

Mounting

The HeadPLUS v2 can be installed on a tripod with a 3/8"-16 mount or used with the SliderPLUS with Slide Module for sliding shots. It can also be used with the SliderPLUS PRO and the previous-generation SliderPLUS and SliderPLUS PRO. It comes with an L-bracket with a 1/4"-20 camera-mounting screw.

edelkrone HeadPLUS Reviews

My Surrogate Camera Operator

By Edward
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-08

I use the HeadPlus V2 to operate a remote camera, completely wirelessly and battery-powered, when I'm bound to an operating station for multiple cameras, recording and streaming gear. It's like a PTZ camera, but without the need for control and video cabling. I put it in a balcony or at the rear of the venue, where it is impractical to lay cables. It's only Bluetooth, but works well at 50' if there's a line-of-sight.

Great addition to the Edelkrone products

By Nicolas

This pan tilt head is a great addition to the Edelkrone line of products. It allows one to great extend the motion capable for a slider, the jib, or on its own. It will shift a bit when the motors park and the work around is to keep it looping while operating. I have reached out to the edelkrone team letting them know that adding a live mode where it doesn't park would be great to avoid this subtle shift. This this works with a Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS II and a 5D MK IV. You will need a plate of some kind between the lens collar and the mount. I used a Kirk KLP-525 plate. You will want to use the stabilization mode depending on how you have it mounted. I found it worked just fine when it was mounted directly to a tripod but when on a SliderPLUS v5 PRO Long that it needed the IS to smooth out the footage.

Does this motion control system work with the black magic pocket cinema 4k?
Asked by: Whit
Thank you for your question. The Blackmagic cameras do not have a port to be able to take a shutter release cable. So you will not be able to connect the camera to the edelkrone unit for automatic shutter release during time lapse or 360 shooting modes. However, you can still mount the Blackmagic cameras to the edelkrone units to take advantage of the slide, pan, and tilt movements for video recording.

How far away from the edelkrone HeadPLUS v2 Pan and Tilt Head can I manually control it using the app or controller?
Asked by: Sun
Because the app uses Bluetooth to communicate with the Edelkrone HeadPLUS v2 Pan and Tilt Head, the furthest you could get from the head without losing connection would be around 330 feet.

What are the improvements over the previous version?
Asked by: Joanna
1. HeadPLUS v2 has an LCD information screen and a physical On/Off button on its body. 2. HeadPLUS v2’s L-Bracket has an additional marking point that will allow you to enter more information regarding your camera’s position to the edelkrone app. As a result of this development, HeadPLUS v2 will provide better results in Target Mode. 3. HeadPLUS v2 also has pan and folding angle lock pins for straight adjustments, this is safer to use with the JibONE in hanging mode, and safer to relocate the setup on a tripod without detaching. It is also compatible with the new vision module for automated face tracking.

Can this make smooth tilts using long lenses? Perhaps not a 600mm f4, but what of a 150-500 at the 500 end?
Asked by: Douglas
Yes it is possible but you will need to make sure that the payload (lens + camera) is within the weight capacity (10 lbs) and take some time to make sure that it is properly balanced. This is even more essential with telephoto lenses because their size makes it more challenging to balance.
