The Osprey Elite is extremely versatile, designed to support the latest range of digital, portable and full facility cameras for both studio and OB productions. The two-stage column offers on-shot movement from a minimum height of 66 cm/ 26 ” to a maximum height of 143 cm/ 56 “, and features full crab and steer facilities controlled from a central steering ring.

The studio version of the Osprey Elite includes cable guards, whilst the larger wheels of the OB version offer greater ground clearance. Both versions have an exceptional combination of lightness and structural integrity giving maximum stability whilst still allowing the column and dolly base to fold for easy transportation.

The Osprey Elite is also ideal for use on track when combined with Vinten’s Tracking Skid (see page 29). Other optional accessories include a portable hand pump to counterbalance the pneumatic system, a large steering ring and OB wheel cable guards.

  • Extensive on-shot capability
  • Removable steering and kick rings
  • Crab and steer facility
  • Folds for easy transportation

The Osprey Elite pedestal comprises a central two-stage telescopic column and a steerable, fold- ing skid assembly. For transport and storage, the steering ring may be removed and the column and skid separated.

The moving column is pressurized from an external pressure source. Trim weights are provided for fine balance.

The skid comprises a centre casting with carrying handle, a fixed leg and two folding legs. Each leg carries twin wheels, with brakes on the folding legs and a tiller socket on the fixed leg.

Two versions of the skid are available. The OB skid has 160mm (6.3in.) wheels. The studio skid has 125mm (5in.) wheels with cable guards. The Vinten heavy-duty tracking skid, designed for use on 620mm track, may also be used with the Osprey Elite pedestal.
