Heads up on new Vinten Vector 75

Vinten will have a new introduction at NAB: the Vector 75 head, which boasts the same camera carrying performance (up to 75kg) as the Vector 750 (the i version of which is pictured above), but incorporates the standard LF drag control that helped make its predecessor, the Vector 70, an industry standard for many years.

The design, built upon the skeleton of the original Vector 70 (pictured below), now includes a range of standard features that address the needs of today’s fast paced and cost conscious productions without compromising camera control.

The pantographic balance mechanism, unique to the Vinten Vector range, allows simple adjustment and eliminates time-consuming cam changes when altering the camera configuration. This counterbalance mechanism, combined with the Vinten standard LF drag system, is claimed to offer smooth, precise movement. Prototype trials for the Vector 75 begin this month and the product will be released in June.

“NAB2011 provides the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our broad spectrum of products, from the unveiling of our brand new Vector 75 head, right through to our established, award winning Vision range. Customers can experience the high quality performance of our products for themselves and can see the equipment in action in a variety of different set ups,” said Peter Harman, Vinten product manager.
