Bescor MP-1B overview

  • 1Description

The Bescor MP-1B includes the MP-101 Motorized Pan/Tilt Head with 90-645 Battery and BC-665R Charger. The MP-101 head can be mounted on 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 the included Bescor 90-645 battery, and can also be powered by either the separately available Bescor PS-260 power supply or four AA batteries.

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

Pan Range: 0 to 340°, with the following settings:

  • Auto mode: 0 to 340°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
  • 90° mode: 0 to 90°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
  • 45° mode: 0 to 45°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
  • 0° mode: Unit pans to 340°, then returns to 0° and parks

Note: For Auto, 90°, and 45° modes, 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 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 the included Bescor 90-645 battery, or by the following non-included power sources:

  • Four AA batteries
  • Bescor PS-260 power supply

Battery and Charger

Bescor 90-645 Battery
The Bescor 90-645 battery is rated at 6V 4.5A, and will power the MP-101 for 6-12 hours depending on the load.
Bescor BC-665R Charger
The charger is a standard overnight charger and is not equipped with an automatic shutoff feature. It will charge a fully depleted Bescor 90-645 battery in 8 hours.

Charging Notes

Do Not Overcharge the Battery
Charging a battery for more than 12 hours can damage the battery and shorten its lifespan.

    Bescor MP-1B reviews

    MP-101 Motorized Pan/Tilt Head with 90-645 Battery and BC-665R Charger is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost perfect for the price This works pretty well and considering the price it's an excellent purchase. I wish the speed could be controlled more precisely though. My real problem is the small tilt angle (otherwise i would have given it 4 stars) The built is somewhat cheap but so was the price so hopefully it'll last. I sue this on a jib and so far works well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific piece of equipment Better than advertised. I use this with my night vision monoculars and it works great. The slow speed is perfect for looking at the night sky. I also bought the 20ft extension cord so I can be indoors and use the remote. Its a great unit. Definitely would recommend to anyone interested in this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than advertised. I am very happy with my purchase of your MP-1B Motorized Pan Head with battery and Charger. I also purchased the 20ft extension cord. I am using this to hold my Night Vision Monoculars. I do not have to go out to the Balcony after the initial set-up. Its great, I sit in my chair with the remote control and point using the Pan and Tilt Head. It moves just slow enough for me and operates well. The tilt mode could be better if it moved about 50 degrees. But I am still happy with the complete product.
