Vinten Rolls Out Vision AS Heads

Vinten launched its new range of Vision AS lightweight pan and tilt heads—which cater to professional DV camcorders from 4.4 pounds to 32 lbs—at NAB.

The Vitec Group unit said the four heads use its Perfect Balance technology, which allows the camera to be moved in any direction under fingertip control. And the AS line’s sideload camera plate feature allows operators to mount and dismount the camera in seconds.

The complete Vision AS range and corresponding camera payload (at 125mm center of gravity) is: Vision 3 AS (4.4-11 lbs), Vision 5 AS (9.9-23.1 lbs), Vision 8 AS (12.1-27.6 lbs), and Vision 10 AS (14.3-32.0 lbs).
