HunterCam CLAMP-A-CAM PRO overview

  • 1Description

The HunterCam Cradle PRO with Manfrotto 128RC Pan/Tilt Head is designed for the highly advanced outdoor videography, and is suitable for cameras up to a maximum weight of 12 lbs. Attachable to trees with a maximum diameter of 24", the Cradle Pro consists of a tree mounting base with 2 built-on custom ratchet straps, an independent arm assembly with the Manfrotto 128RC pan/tilt head, a standard self-leveling, and an optional heavy-duty clamping base. The unit has an average reach of 30" and a maximum of 35".

The tree mounting base has a wide range of adjustment level capabilities. The first adjustment point makes it possible for the HunterCam Cradle to be used in various situations. The second adjustment point allows the PRO to extend in and out from the tree for added comfort and ease of movement about your waist line. In addition, the reversible base allows the camcorder set-up to the left or right-hand side of the user.

With an arched design, the mounting base ensures added stability and enhanced orientation directly off the tree. The torquing levers are placed in the most accessible locations for minimizing arm movement, allowing you to maintain adjustments in a comfortable seating position.

Two built-on custom ratchet strapping assemblies make attachments to a tree twice as easy as conventional ratchet straps. The rubber coated flat hook hooks to the body of the ratchet, while an inline cam buckle enables you to easily gauge the circumference of the tree, switch out the excess slack, and also provides quiet and quick dismount. The pan/tilt head with a quick-release camera shoe makes for video shots with multiple angle adjustments.

The all metal built-in bubble level helps you identify whether the positioning is level or plumb. The optional detachable clamping base offers more mounting options to the Cradle PRO. The lightweight compact design of the Cradle PRO makes for easy backpack portability.

    HunterCam CLAMP-A-CAM PRO reviews

    Cradle PRO with Manfrotto 128RC Pan/Tilt Head is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hunter Cam Cradle Pro w/Manfrotto Pan/Tilt Head This is really a pro model. Well constructed. The bass plate as 2 ratchets built into it, with each strap includes 2 metal hooks, one on each end. That hooks right onto the metal cams on the base. Safely securing the base onto any tree, or round pole or post. The arm assembly slides right into the post on the base plate. The arm extends out, away from the base about 35. As a Manfrotto pan/tilt head, with a built-in bubble for leveling the base plate. I use it for videotaping my music performances in nightclubs where I cannot safely place a tripod on the dance floor, where someone may knock it over. Heavy duty construction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommened to others who need an articulating camera arm I bought this camera mount to use in our testing facility. We had used a few tripods and home-built camera mounts for various tests, but they all had some drawbacks. For a recent test we didn't have any space on the floor tripod legs or a base, etc. Our HunterCam Cradle Pro is now mounted to an I-beam beside the test cell. The large amount of articulation and the great tilt/pan head greatly makes our test setups more efficient. It is also great how light weight this unit is being made of aluminum.
