Wow, Andy that's awesome.

Are you an experienced jib operator? If not, how much practice did it require?



Thanks

Hi Paul - not really - and this was the first time out with this head on. Of course I 'cherry picked' the best bits of tape - but actually didn't edit and awful lot out of that.

Andy,

Thank you, looks good. A couple of questions.
Did you get the Sr or the Jr?
If you were running a second camera/recording audio would the noise of the unit interfere with that recording?

I am considering ordering one of the SR models.

Bill

Those of you who have purchased the PT head, do you think it would support a camera up to 15lbs as they claim? We use JVC GY-HM700's which weigh just over 8 lbs. with the battery attached. For the price, this would be great.

How do you avoid getting the cables to the camera getting all twisted up and pulling out?

Really? No one can tell me if they think the head will support a 9 lbs. camera?

Curious if there are any updates from users of any of the Proaim motorized pan tilt heads? They upgraded their top of the line model and it is now called the "Gold Proaim". I see they still sell the old top of the line model as the "Sr." and of course still sell the lighter weight "Jr.".

I am seriously considering getting the Jr. for my Sony V1U. I have $2000+ taste but a very low budget and the $475 price is great. If it works as advertised but is just not as durable as a name brand I would probably be ok because it would be used in a very limited fashion with my Kessler crane. I have had good luck with the Indian steadicam arm / vest and am hoping the same would be true here. Hope somebody has current input!

Hi, i'm new to this forum. This is actually my first post i believe.

I just received my pro aim pan and tilt crane two days ago.

I'll write up a review on it and make a youtube review aswell for people who are interested.

If anyone has any urgent questions ask here and i'll be happy to respond.

Hi all,

I ordered the ProAim Gold head and a Kessler Ultra 12/8 last night. Will get a review and some footage up when it arrives!

I would love to read your reviews guys, along with any sample videos. I'm mostly interested in the POWER of the motors, as in, will they actually work with a 10lbs. camera.

Power I am not really concerned with. I am more concerned that the start/stop will be jerky. We shall see.
