Overview
  • 1Description

Designed to support the latest Studio and OB cameras equipped with long lenses, studio viewfinder or large teleprompter, the Omega is an extremely compact fluid head incorporating an entirely new patented counterbalance system as well as an advanced fluid damping module.

The continuously variable counterbalance system is ideally suited to operate with cameras featuring a high center of gravity and weighing from 77 - 176 lb. The frictionless damping modules features a complete patented design, which provides for extraordinary performances over an extended temperature range, with smooth and precise movements together with a linear response in any critical environment. And for ease of use the counterbalance and damping system are connected to easy-to-read digital readouts, allowing quick set up even in low light situations.

The Omega interfaces directly with any Mitchell or 150mm bowl base and can be easily mounted on top of all existing pedestals featuring the 4-hole bores. Weighing only 33 lb, it's the lightest in its class and comes provided with an integral soft grip carrying handle, two telescopic pan bars and illuminated spirit level.

Continuously Adjustable Counterbalance System
The Omega features continuously adjustable counterbalance system allows the cameraperson to fine-tune an extremely wide range of cameras featuring a high center of gravity and weighing from 77 - 176 lb throughout a tilt range of -/+ 65 degrees. Calibrated with a variable adjustment connected to a digital readout display, the counterbalance-operating knob is conveniently located on the side of the head.
Pan and Tilt Control
