About this item

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.

Key Features

  • Vinten has developed the Vector 950 Active pan and tilt head system to interface with the Canon Optical Shift Image Stabilizer technology. The Vector 950 Active generates real-time digital data that accurately describe the camera operator's operational movements of the lens-camera system.
  • The Active data communicates over the interface with the new 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 achieves perfect counterbalance by means of continuously-variable spring mechanism. This allows the head to tilt through the full range of -90 to +90° in perfect balance, eliminating a considerable amount of physical effort required by the operator.
  • The Vinten TF (Thin Film) damping system provides consistent drag performance in demanding conditions from -40°F to +140°F (-40°C to 60°C).
  • It offers total control for precise movement and excellent camera control during the critical slow start-up of the shot, providing seamless transitions into whip pans and instant recovery to the original drag setting at the end of the movement.
  • An LCD display located on the back of the head provides a 24-hour clock, stopwatch and indicates the current level of counterbalance selected. This is particularly useful when necessary to regularly change the camera, lens, magazine, viewfinder and re-balance with predictable results.
  • Built-in illuminated bubble level facilitates efficient leveling even under unfavorable lighting conditions.
  • To efficiently and reliably arrest pan and tilt movement, the Vector 70 employs true caliper disk brakes which, for safety purposes, are on by default, requiring operator action to release.
  • For left- or two-handed configurations depending on application and operator.
