Description

The class leading Vision 250 is designed to support the latest portable cameras complete with viewfinders, prompters and pan bar controls and is becoming the standard in new studio production as well as OB/EFP applications. With a choice of easily changeable spherical or flat bases, the Vision 250 can be mounted on any pedestal or tripod, making the Vision 250 head one of the most versatile products in the range.

The TF drag system offers infinite adjustment and because it works independently of the balance system, allows precision balancing of the pan and tilt axis so that the effort needed to follow the action becomes totally insignificant.

The Vision 250 also includes illuminated drag controls and a digital counterbalance readout, ensuring simple and repeatable camera set-up in any lighting situation.

  • TF drag mechanism
  • Perfect Balance throughout
  • 180° tilt range
  • Digital balance readout display
  • Extensive operating temperature from-40°C to +60°C

The Vision 250 pan & tilt head achieves the Perfect Counter Balance by means of an innovative and patented infinitely-variable spring mechanism. This allows the head to tilt through the full range of ±90° in perfect balance, eliminating a considerable amount of physical effort required by the operator to control the tilting action. Since the camera is perfectly balanced, it can be left at any angle – totally hands free – without having to lock the tilt brake. The variable counterbalance mechanism allows it to be used with a variety of lenses, batteries, viewfinders and on-camera lights.

For even faster setup, the Vision 250 offers a digital counterbalance readout, with repeatable balance setting. The display is activated by a simple press of a button and remains visible for 15 seconds.

The Vision 250 uses the Vinten TF (Thin Film) damping system, to provide consistent drag and constant performance in demanding conditions from -40°F to +140°F. The TF system offers total control, for precise movement and excellent camera control during the critical slow start-up of your shot. Providing seamless transition into Whip Pan and instant recovery to the original drag setting at the finish of the movement.
Calibrated with variable adjustment and a single turn rotation from fully On to Off, the drag knobs are backlit and are adjusted accordingly (depending on the lighting conditions) by a light sensor built into the digital readout. For easy viewing and detented to give a “dial-in feel”, ensuring that settings are always maintained.
