Bescor MP-1K overview

  • 1Description

The Bescor MP-1K comes as a kit and contains one Bescor MP-101 motorized pan and tilt head, and one Bescor TH-36 aluminum alloy tabletop tripod.

The MP-101 head can be mounted to a tripod or any mounting system with a 1/4"-20 screw, and provides smooth motorized pan and tilt features for cameras weighing up to 6 lb. The MP-101 has a pan range of 340° and a tilt range of 30°. This compact and lightweight motorized head is useful for mounting and controlling the pan and tilt of a camera where automatic or remote operation is preferred.

The MP-101 can be powered by four AA batteries, the Bescor PS-260 power supply, or the Bescor 90-645 battery, which are available separately.

The TH-36 tabletop tripod is robust enough to support the weight of the MP-101 head and appropriate camera, and can be used on almost any flat surface for fast easy set up. The foldable "cold" shoe bracket is a useful extra for attaching items with a hot shoe mount.

MP-101 Motorized Pan Tilt Head

Range of Motion
The MP-101 has two motors, one each for the pan and tilt functions. The motors operate independently of each other, and can be controlled by the included MP-REMOTE.

Tilt Range is -15 to 15° and is set to position using the included MP-REMOTE.
Note: The tilt axis has no automatic movement functionality.

Pan Range is 0 to 340°, with the following settings:
Auto Mode - 0 to 340°, then returning to 0° cycle repeats
90° Mode - 0 to 90°, then returning to 0° cycle repeats
45° Mode - 0 to 45°, then returning to 0° cycle repeats
0° Mode - Unit pans to 340°, then returns to 0° and parks
Note: for Auto, 90° and 45° mode the MP-101 starts by panning to zero before starting its cycle.
Remote Operation
The included MP-REMOTE can be used to set both pan and tilt position on the MP-101 head. The remote can also be used to control both pan and tilt movement directly, and the speed slider on the remote can vary the speed of the movement from between normal to 3x slower. The speed slider also varies the speed of the pan movement when the head is in Auto, 90°, and 45° mode.
The MP-101 is powered by any of the following non-included power sources:
4x AA batteries
Bescor 90-645 battery
Bescor PS-260 power supply

TH-36 Tabletop Tripod

The TH-36 Tabletop Tripod is compact in size, folds for travel and supports a maximum load of 12 lb. The TH-36 can easily support the weight of the MP-101 head and 6 lb video camera.
The tilt angle can be adjusted, and the tripod comes with a 1/4"-20 mounting screw and an anti slip cork mat.
Accessory Brackets
The tabletop tripod comes with a "cold" shoe bracket on a foldable arm for mounting accessories with a hot shoe mount.
