I’ve had the privilege of watching the latest innovation from CPM Camera Rigs evolve over the past two years. The vision was to bring a low cost, lightweight geared head to the market for small cameras. With a MSRP of $2500, CPM has succeeded. While some will see $2.5K for a video head as expensive, it is important to note the the lowest costing alternative is over $7K. Geared heads offer incredible control over pans and tilts seen in the demo video below. Take a look on the next major motion picture set you come across and notice what the camera up is using.
For a limited time you can get the DSLR Geared Head for under $2K. More details here.
