The Varizoom VZ-MC50 is specifically tailored for smaller DV and HD cameras under 12 lbs.
The MC50 head mounts to nearly any jib or tripod and can be integrated into permanent AV systems in studios or churches. The custom lightweight carrying case with die-cut foam insert will protect the MC50 for storage or transport via air or land. A modular architecture makes parts replacement and repair simple, and VariZoom's renowned customer service is second to none.
Precision CNC machining, top-shelf components, rigorous parts inspection, and thorough individual unit testing ensure grade A quality. Borrowing from the design of the classic best-selling MC100, the MC50 is a compact, lower-cost, lighter head for the latest generation of small HD cameras.
Total remote camera operation becomes possible with the MC50 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 MC50's lightweight, universal mounting base, and intuitive control box make it a breeze to set up and operate.
The VZ-MC50's competitive 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 MC50 at your disposal, productions become more expansive, dynamic, and "high-end".
Utilizing the same rugged and field tested electronics and controls that have made the MC100 so popular for years, the MC50 is the lighter duty choice of professionals using smaller HD and DV cameras.
