Vinten Vector 70H

The richly-featured Vinten Vector 70H pan/tilt head is intended for high center-of-gravity professional studio and OB camera packages weighing up to 154 lbs (70 kg).

Counterbalance is achieved by means of a sliding top stage and a continuously-variable spring mechanism which allows the head to tilt through the full 104° tilt range in perfect balance, eliminating a considerable amount of physical effort required by the operator. In that the camera payload is perfectly balanced, it may be left at any angle, totally hands free, without engaging the tilt brake.

Though not a fluid head, proper, the Vector 70H delivers the same function of smoothly conveying the camera package in a manner akin to heads filled with fluid, but with greater versatility. The Vinten LF (Lubricated Friction) drag system provides continuously variable, stiction-free drag where the torque is provided by a bearing assembly of dissimilar materials assisted with a specifically-engineered lubricant. Unique to this method of dampening, drag may be interrupted with whip pans or tilts at any point within the dampening range, then return to the normal resistance.

In addition to superior operational handling, the Vector 70H includes important design details such as illuminated controls and wide-spaced dual pan arm rosettes for operator comfort and peace of mind. Product support begins with the 2-year warranty period, and is augmented with one of the most extensive online PDF libraries in the industry, complete with service manuals and highly-detailed CAD drawings.

Perfect Counterbalance for High Center-of-Gravity Cameras

The Vector 70H achieves perfect counterbalance by means of continuously-variable spring mechanism. This allows the head to tilt through the full range of -52 to +52° in perfect balance, eliminating a considerable amount of physical effort required by the operator. Since the camera is perfectly balanced, it can be left at any angle – totally hands free – without having to engage the tilt brake.

LF (Lubricated Friction) Drag Control

To provide the appropriate amount of resistance, the Vector 70H uses the field proven Vinten LF (Lubricated Friction) damping system. It features a progressive, stiction-free drag where the torque is provided by a sliding contact between dissimilar surfaces, ensuring that the smoothest movement is always achieved. In addition, drag may be interrupted with on-demand whip pans at any point within the dampening range.

Illuminated Bubble Level

Built-in illuminated bubble level facilitates easy leveling even under unfavorable lighting conditions

Caliper Disk Brakes

To efficiently and reliably arrest pan and tilt movement, the Vector 70H employs true caliper disk brakes which, for safety purposes, are on by default, requiring operator exertion to release
