The Vinten has developed the Vector 950 Active pan and tilt head system to interface with the Canon Optical Shift Image Stabilizer ("Shift-IS") technology. The result is a revolution in operational control of lens image stabilization for sports and events broadcasts. The Vector 950 Active generates real-time digital data that accurately describe the camera operator's operational movements of the lens-camera system. This data communicates over the interface with the Canon high definition DIGISUPER 100AF and DIGISUPER 86AF long-zoom field lenses to assist the action of the lens image stabilization system.
The Vector 950 Active comes complete with a standard four bolt base, single telescopic pan bar and wedge adapter. It offers an increased capacity of up to 120kg/265lbs providing perfectly balanced tilt. By combining the characteristics of the TF drag control with infinite perfect balance adjustment, the effort needed to control the effect of a heavy, moving camera payload remains constant, predictable and minimal - not a major distraction.
The combination of Vinten's Vector 950 Active and Canon's Shift-IS stabilization is ideally suited for use in sports broadcast and other production.
