The fully variable counterbalance system is designed to accommodate offset payloads ensuring excellent performances at any tilt angle. The Delta features a continuously adjustable fluid damping mechanism providing extremely smooth and precise camera movements. Standard performances of +70, -60° can be increased to +/- 90° with the optional sliding base plate.
