VariZoom VZ-MC100 Overview

  • 1Description

The VZ-MC100 Pan and Tilt control system for all camcorders up to 25 lb. VariZoom has created a brand new lightweight and extremely portable remote head, weighing only 8 lb. The VZ-MC series pan and tilt heads allow for remarkably fast set-ups.

VariZoom has compacted all of the electronics necessary to drive the precision pan and tilt head into one small control housing, allowing for portability and versatility. Just mount the VZ-MC remote head on a tripod or jib plug into the supplied cord leading to the control handle power up your control handle by battery or with the supplied ac power supply and you're ready to go.

Note: We recommend mounting the MC100 on a 100mm bowl-type tripod since it will fit snugly and enable you to thread the supplied bolt through the MC100 mounting plate and down through the bowl of the tripod. Using the supplied oversize washer and nut, you can securely bolt the MC100 onto the tripod bowl. VARIZOOM DOES NOT RECOMMEND MOUNTING THE MC100 ON ANY TRIPOD OTHER THAN A 100 mm BOWL TRIPOD.

When used with a VariZoom remote focus and zoom controller you will possess the most powerful acquisition tool. Imagine a complete camera control with smooth pan, tilt, zoom, and focus. It will increase your production values.
Beautifully, machined parts with the highest standards of industrial grade, electronic components, VariZoom's machining electronics and quality control are second to none.

    VariZoom VZ-MC100 Reviews

    VZ-MC100 Pan and Tilt Control System is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great since 2008 I bought this with an EZ Jib and it has worked well so far. Can be mounted overhead or underslung and the controls on the remote can be switched accordingly to allow for the change of direction. In addition to this, the rotation speed can be varied on the remote as well as varied by the joystick on the remote. It can move fast or silky smooth. Make sure to take the time to properly balance your camera for best results. Also; don't forget and leave your quick release plate behind as I did once. I was 2 hours away and had to attach the camera to the head with a 1/4-20 camera knuckle that had a long enough thread to pass though the plate and securely attach to the camera. My original head came with the varizoom remote cable and RCA video cable already routed through the inside. Since then I have run an HDMI cable (mini to regular) through it to accomodate my HD cameras I did not have back in 2008.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional quality head I use this with a VariZoom jib and find it to be crucial as the jib is long and I'm no expert at operating a fluid head on tippy-toe with a poor view of the monitor.Assembly and balancing are very intuitive, and the included RCA video and Lanc cables are helpful. I would purchase an extra control cable and add a D-Tap power cable as well.This works incredily well with small/medium size video cameras. However, with a fully built-out DSLR rig, you may need a longer plate to balance the rig - mine was always front heavy with a matte box and ff. That said, the mounting plate on the head is quite wide and should accomodate almost anything within the wight limit.Using the head takes some practice. The speed controls for pan and tilt are helpful, but the joystick takes some getting used to after a gear or fluid head.Buy this head with confidence - it adds a tremendous tool to the production kit and I can already think of a dozen ways in whcih it will be helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great remote head for QuickJib Bought complete system with QuickJib2 Ext. Shoot events and fixed products. B&H delivered quick and complete. What I like Fast setup and very sturdy well thought out design both jib and remote head. The kit is made so well it looks like it will last forever.
