The award-winning Vinten Osprey Elite Studio 2-Stage Steering Pedestal is a high performance, lightweight pedestal capable of handling a wide range of digital and portable cameras. The pedestal provides extensive on-shot movement capability with full crab and steer functionality. The Osprey Elite's special folding design makes it easy to transport.
Eliminating the need to concentrate on camera balance allows the camera operator to focus entirely on framing. Vinten's standard of high quality pedestals for both studio and on-location shoots, along with their design innovation ensure the perfect shot every time.
The pedestal's versatility is heightened by its extremely lightweight design, allowing it to support almost twice its weight.
High Payload Capacity
The Osprey Elite can hold up to 165 lbs, making it a premium performer for most cameras.
Vinten's Low-Pressure counterbalance system compensates perfectly for gravity.
The unit collapses into two lightweight folding parts for easy transport.

A pedestal's on-shot stroke (vertical distance the pedestal can be lifted with one smooth motion) is very important both in the studio, and on location. Osprey Elite provides an amazing 30" of on-shot stroke, making sure you achieve the shot you need.
Adjustable Dolly Track
Narrow doorways are no problem with the Osprey Elite. Simply reduce the spread of the dolly track and you are ready to go!
Crab and steer movement is achieved by using the a detachable Steering Ring. The Steering Ring is equipped with two moveable indicators, allowing the camera operator to produce quick reference points for various camera positions.
Control the wheels simply by using the durable foot-operated braking buttons.
