The 9.Solutions Camera C-Pan Guide Arm is a compact arm that provides multiple camera movements for dramatic effects. Bring your video to life with simple vertical or horizontal movements. Get dynamic shots with diagonal, curved or fly-over camera moves. The C-Pan Arm can do it all and with counterweights weighs just 24 lbs.
The camera is always set to move with whatever move the arm makes i.e.: if the arm moves in an outward shaped curve, then the camera will stay directed towards the centre of the curve and if the arms are set for a smaller radius curve, then the camera adjusts accordingly to stay pointed at the centre. Through positioning its arms at different angles to each other, the C-pan arm can be set to move in a virtually infinite number of curves. When making a straight pan, the arm functions as a traditional straight-track dolly slider, but without the tracks, where it can pan in a range of 3 1/2 times its folded length (which is approx. 55 cm). The C-pan arm comes with dumbbells which can be used to counter weigh vertical movements and/or to smoothen and stabilise horizontal moves.
