Glidecam Camcrane 200 overview

  • 1Description

The Camcrane 200 is a tripod mounted, boom-arm, camera crane system designed to allow you to smoothly boom your camera up, boom your camera down and move your camera in an infinite number of 360 degree areas. When balanced and used correctly the Camcrane 200 moves with such tremendous precision and fluidity that the results can only be called "picture perfect".

Camera cranes have been an industry standard for over 85 years. People have used cranes to move cameras to new heights both literally and figuratively, and now you can too.

The Camcrane 200 is the most affordable and versatile crane of its type on the market today. With its ease of set-up and variable boom lengths, you'll soon find yourself shooting the shots that you've always dreamed of.

Constructed of aluminum alloy with black coat finish.
With the four length combinations - 3.3', 4.10', 6.6' and 8.1' - and three fulcrum (balance) settings, the arm can be adjusted and balanced to right elevation that's needed, and holds cameras up to 25 lbs at 8-ft and 30 lbs at the 6.6' length.
Can vertical boom from floor to 10-ft @ the 8-ft length (variable).
Rotates 360 degrees via precision, zero deflection, needle roller, turntable bearing.
Mounts on the 3/8" standard bolt found on the majority of medium and heavy-duty tripods.
The Head Unit has a 3/8" mounting holes/slots allowing you to attach and horizontally balance a pan and tilt video head and can be set up in either high or low mode.
Crane can be operated from either the head unit or the weight unit.
Fits easily into trunk of car at only 3.3-ft long.

    Glidecam Camcrane 200 reviews

    Camcrane 200 Camera Crane is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bang for the buck!!! I use the Camcrane for short films and am more than pleased at the advanced camera movement this crane is able to achieve with little more than a spare set of sticks and a few weights for counterbalance. Without a remote head, I am able to control the properly weighted crane from the camera mount to add the tilts and pans to my vertical/horizontal movements. It is easy to build/break down. If you have a spare fluid head/sturdy tripod legs w/spreaders (which I keep broken down with the crane when stored), building the crane can be accomplished in only a few short minutes. As a con, there is no secure lock for the crane's panning unit. If wind is blowing, you better have someone holding the weights because it can swing on its own.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Directions archaic I was excited to find an affordable camera crane and ordered the camcrane 200. What could have taken 10 minutes to show how to put it together with a video or maybe 20 minutes with a few step-by-step print images, it was taking hours to read through all the pages of just text. I finally called the company and in a quick phone call had all my questions answered and found that my tripods the B&H rep said would work needed a ball leveler in order to mount the crane. Maybe all this wouldn't be a problem for someone who's already used and built a crane but even then it says to read all directions before assembling. Now that we have it up it is pretty cool and we have figured out a way to transport it without taking everything apart.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome, but..... I almost wrote this review before ever using the product, because it was SOOOO annoying to set up. The instructions are horrible (very few pictures!) and I set out to Google and found an outside source giving an instruction video. It is about as hard as putting together an Ikea dresser. It does NOT come with the rachet/wrench you need, but does have all the screws, etc. You also need a semi sturdy tripod base and dumbell weights to use with it!!! The crane is also huge. Not easy to store, and I only dismanttled it into 2 pieces as I don't want to put the while thing together every time. All that said, it is AWESOME. First time I used it, gave me professional looking video movements. I am no super video expert, but my first shots for a music video looked great. Way easier to to us than to setup!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for those seeking quality I am a videographer and this Camcrane 200 is fantastic. It gives me great jib shots and does so at a minimal cost. It takes me to the next level of videography. It is hard to move around when fully assembled (cumbersome), but is also very light. I rented it once and became a believer, and so decided to buy it outright.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the price but not great I bought a glidecam 200 because it was about $700-800 less than the seven jibs I work with on a regular basis. Its variable length set up made it sound like a good deal too. I often work in small spaces and the short arm set up seemed like a good idea. The crane was easy to set up for the first time although you have to press in the fulcrum bearings yourself, something that the manufacturer should do for you. The entire thing bolts together with a lot of standard hardware. Building the jib takes a good bit of time and requires tools to tighten the locking nuts, not good if you're on a tight schedule. I'm getting around this by replacing about half of the bolts with hitch pins and the fulcrum bolts with thumb screws. Once it's built it performs like a mid-priced crane. It's smooth but has more side to side wobble that it should. It seems to work better with heavier loads. It's very sloppy under the weight of a DSLR. That being said it's a good tool for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Footprint. Big Possibilies! Best Portable Jib ever! Fit's completely set up minus the tripod in our Chevy Tahoe. This crane can fit inside a passenger elevator with the head section to the ground. Amazingly, this crane can also achieve a very high angle. Add the glidecam remote head over-slung and you get even more height!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shots! A little difficult to set up, and takes more than two people to get together initially. The results however are worth the hassle. We got to shoot really excellent footage and the flexibility is just right for a small TV crew that wants to simulate the look and feel of film.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING CRANE FOR THE PRICE I have been using this jib to shoot rock climbing, live concerts, real estate videos, and done studio work and it has performed great in all locations. It's pretty easy/straight forward to set-up + balance. Very smooth when balanced properly.
