Designed by Film Air, this crane is a classic. Well known and years on sets of Feature Films and hard to get to locations. Its unique look and design feature tapered sections nesting in
each other making it transported easily and extremely durable.

Accommodates both Remote Heads and Platform, the Giraffe crane is a strong, modular designed and efficient crane that makes the job simple and reliable.

Q&A: Can the Crane run on tracks? Most of the cranes we have are able to run on tracks but we need first to calculate the weight of the crane after we know what length, remote head or platform and camera are being used because some of the tracks are limited to a certain payload.

Can the crane be built on a car for traveling shots? Yes, we prefer using the Giraffe crane on a car simply because it’s the most rugged crane on the market, it has an outstanding tolerance for bumpy rides and has a long range and height when swinging up/down. The perfect set for a car rig is the Giraffe equipped with our Gyro stabilized Active Head.
