remove control

I can use three video cameras from the mixer for a full theater production with limited cameramen. It has good movement for pan and tilt. They should add the lanc controls for remove of the zoom on the cameras. The remote head should have at least a 20 foot cable, the short cable where you can still touch the camera, is not "remote", that is why I bought two 50' extension cables.

Better than I expected. I'am suprised.

By

from Huntsville Al.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I am surprised it doesn't cost more. It is larger than expected and it had no problem handling my spotting scope. I do a lot of wildlife photography and was tired of fighting my tripod and missing shots. it is easy to use. There is a slight amount of drift after you release the remote control button.

Works as expected

By

from Winfield, KS  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this with an outside web cam to watch deer feeding in my back yard. So, It's outside and subject to weather. I have taken steps to protect it from that, but it is obviously not designed for what I am using it for. Only glitch so far is in the placement of the power and remote cables. They stick out enough I had to tape them up to keep them from restricting rotation. But that is because of the way I have them mounted. A few inches should be enough to let it travel. Otherwise, I think it will do what I wanted. Not like I move it around much. But sometimes the FOV with the camera needs a "touch up" in direction and vertical movement.

Bescor Video Motorized Pan/Tilt Unit

By

from Arlington, TX.  -  Casual Photographer

Easy to setup and use right out of the box. No problems with adjustments and it has been very dependable. No big battery drain. I really enjoy using the pan/tilt for unique photo and video opportunities. I added a large magnet to the base and attached it to my sidecar. The remote works very well and it is a fun piece of equipment to use with my various cameras.

AC to DC Adaptor

By

from Albuquerque, NM  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Uses AC to DC adaptor that comes with unit. I use in our small Church to follow the Pastor from about 25 to 30 foot. The Further away the subject the quicker the pan & tilt in the field of view. I personally would like even slower settings to follow objects along way off while zoomed in.It's alittle too quick even on slowest setting unless you are close to the subject.

Great Product!

By

from Frenchburg, KY  -  Casual Photographer

I bought this for my church because we record our services and they are shown on a local cable channel. We pan across the choir while they're singing. I find the speed of the pan on the lowest setting is still too fast.

Motion Good, sound bad.

By

from Furlong, PA  -  Casual Photographer

I like the product but it is a little bit too noisey when it reaches the max points while in auto-rotation. The unit seems solid but I do hear a little grinding sound occasionally. If you are going to record audio from the camera attached to this unit, it may be a problem. For what I am using it for, it does the job very well.
