ABC Products P15 multi-axis head

ABC Products' new P15 remote head can support up to 25kg on its 2-axis model, or 15kg for the 3-axis version.

Its modular design means that users opting for the lighter 2-axis version (12kg) can add the third later, taking the weight of the unit up to 19.5kg.

“The P15's relative light weight means that it is equally at home rigged in the studio or quickly attached to a mobile crane or jib. This level of flexibility is what modern production operations need in order to get the most out of their equipment. As such this is a great tool for the modern broadcast and film environment," said Nick Allen-Miles, MD of Ianiro UK, its distributor.

It boasts silent operation, precise, intuitive controls and robust build quality. The remote head allows users to continually change the speed, movement, tilt, pan and roll of the camera using a joystick, electronic controller with built-in 4.3-inch touchscreen (pictured) or a pan bar. There is also the option of focus and zoom control via its integrated motors.

Its euro mount system or optional Mitchell adapter allows cameras to be rigged quickly and simply. These mounting options mean that the head can be attached to a large range of cranes or jib arms.
