More crane operators choose VariZoom heads to add on to their cranes / jibs than any other remote head on the market. Users of the QuickJib, SnapCrane and other jibs choose the MC100. The reason is VariZoom's MC100 and MC50 have a tried and true history around the globe. VariZoom heads are reliable and we can service them years after the purchase if they ever need repair as they are made here in our Austin, TX factory. The MC100 has been the choice of rental houses around the globe because of the rugged and reliable design. Buy with confidence from VariZoom as we take care of our customers.
NEW Camera Platform - An all new design for the camera platform makes it more rigid, easier to adjust, and best of all there is no support member protruding below the camera plate, allowing camera moves that were not possible before. The camera plate is 50% thicker and vertical balance adjustment is made using smooth-sliding dual rods. With no protrusions below the camera plate, it is now possible to sweep the camera along very close to the ground or other objects.
Quality Design and Construction - Precision CNC machining, top-shelf components, rigorous parts inspection, and thorough individual unit testing ensure grade A quality. In production for years, the MC100's original design has remained basically unchanged, but over the years customer feedback and engineering review have led to numerous refinements to make the unit lighter, smoother and easier to operate. We back the MC100 with our full two-year warranty and lifetime technical support.
A Powerful Tool - Total remote camera operation becomes possible with the MC100 system. Whether it is mounted on a jib or crane, placed on a tripod as a 'robotic cameraman', or in a fixed location in an auditorium or church, you will have full capability to pan and tilt 360 degrees from the slowest sustained crawl to the rapid moves needed to follow the action. No jib is complete without a motorized pan/tilt head, and the MC100's light weight, universal mounting base, and intuitive compact control box make it a breeze to set up and operate on virtually any jib.
An Investment in Production Value - While certainly not inexpensive, the MC100's price is considerably lower than units of comparable quality and capability. The cost of renting a professional pan/tilt head alone makes it worth considering. With the MC100 at your disposal, productions become more expansive, dynamic, and "high-end", so much so that every time you use it you are increasing not only the artistic quality of the work, but also its dollar-value to prospective clients.
Case - Our NEW custom hard case features: super-rugged waterproof design, ultra-compact form (40% smaller than before), 4-point positive-locking system, auto pressure-release valve (for air travel), comfort-grip handle, customized protective foam insert, padlockable, optional high comfort shoulder strap.
Convenience - The custom lightweight carrying case with die-cut foam insert will protect the MC100 for storage or transport via air or land. A modular architecture makes parts replacement and repair simple, and we are happy to consult with you about options to suit your needs.
The MC100 allows remote operators to execute smooth, variable-speed 360-degree pan and tilt movements. Lightweight head mounts to nearly any jib or tripod and can be integrated into permanent AV systems in studios, churches, or auditoriums.
