The iFootage M1-III MiniCrane is a compact, portable jib arm featuring lightweight carbon-fiber construction, a telescoping square-arm tube, and multiple mounting options. Its square tube design helps to minimize potential shaking during operation. The M1-III has a maximum payload of 15 kg in standard mode and 10 kg in low-angle mode. The main jib arm and the counterweight arm each have one telescoping stage (two sections) with locking thumb-lever knobs. Standard barbell weights (available separately) may be used as counterweights.
Mount your DSLR (or other small camera) on either of two included quick release plates: the M1 or the Motion X2. The M1 plate has both a flat camera plate and a ball mount, enabling use of a fluid head (with a 60 or 75mm ball). The Motion X2 plate is used with micro cameras or when using wide- angle lenses. Both the arm base and the camera base incorporate 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 holes for mounting accessories.
The adjustable tilt-damping knob, the tilt lock, and the pan drag function give you added control over your crane shots. For programmable moves, the M1-III can be used with the iFootage Motion X2 or other motion control systems.
Note: Product is shown in use for illustration Only, additional equipment is not included.
Beautifully designed with a sleek black finish, the M1 III was created using precise CNC machine cutting technology for unprecedented support and durability.
Use the Tilt function for unusual angle while moving the crane up and down and Hold function for to lock the camera position for steady focus.
The newly added damping function enables you to adjust the tightness for up and down tilt.
Mount a camera on it, in standard or low profile mode, or install your Motion X2 system directly on the crane to create a complete motorised system and shoot those interesting angles with ease.
The brand new locking buckle design facilitates quick crane extension for those situations where you need to act fast to get that perfect shot.
