516 PRO CINE-VIDEO HEAD / Cat. No: 516

Specifically designed for the latest DV camcorders, the 516 Pro Cine/Video Head is compact, light, and can support cameras up to 22 lbs.

The 516 is a cost effective high performance cine/video head equipped with fluid cartridges that provides continuous adjustable drag control. This system gives quite a wide range of friction control down to "zero drag" and operates on both pan and tilt axis.

Other features include separate pan and tilt locking mechanism, a fixed counter balance spring of 16.5 lbs load capacity at a center of gravity of 5", two telescopic pan handles, and a bubble level.

The 516 can be mounted on a flat base tripod with a 3/8" female thread attachment, or by attaching the 3141BALL to the head base, allowing it to fit a 100mm bowl.

Sliding quick-release plate for balancing the camera supplied with 1/4-20" and 3/8" camera screws plus VHS locating pin.

The round black knob on the side of the head is used to adjust the tilt friction; the tilt-locking lever is on the opposite side.

The notched black wheel below the quick-release plate mechanism is the pan friction control; the pan-locking lever is just below it near the bubble level.
