Camera Supports have announced the release of a new motorized pan and tilt
powerhead that is ideal for small handheld camcorders, compact cameras, lightweight
DSLRs, miniature cameras and action cameras such as the GoPro. The Powerhead can
be mounted to a tripod, jib or wall bracket either vertically or underslung and
it supports up to 1kg. It is supplied with a control box which allows the user to
adjust the speed and direction of the head with the capability to pan &
tilt through 360°.
PH100 Mini Pan & Tilt Powerhead
Hague PH100 Powerhead will pan and tilt through 360 degrees, this enables the camera
to point directly up or down as required. It is powered by two powerful geared
motors, with the cameras tilt being belt driven, and this ensures the head provides
a very smooth movement with minimum backlash.
camera plate on the tilt drive has three mounting positions for the different
sizes of camera which enables the camera to be correctly balanced. With all
DSLR cameras it is essential that they are correctly balanced, and this can be
more difficult depending upon the lens used, so we would recommend the BCP
Balance Correction Plate which is listed as a related product below.
The speed of movement is variable, from the slowest
crawl up to 24 degrees per second (0 to 4RPM). The drive motors are reasonably
quiet, but will be heard if the cameras onboard microphone is used in quiet
locations (similar to most powerheads on the market). The Head can be mounted
to a tripod, jib or wall bracket and it has a standard threaded hole in its
base. A stud with locking wing nut is
also supplied to enable the head to be mounted to a beam or Jib.
PH100 Control Box
The Hague Control Box has two variable speed
control knobs which give the head a precision pan and tilt movement in either
direction, from a slow crawl up to the required speed. You can also pan and
tilt simultaneously. The head is powered by a rechargeable internal battery,
which enables the power head to be used anywhere without the need of a power
On the back of the control box there are switches
to change the direction of the control knobs and a socket for the control cable.
On the side of the control box is an on/off switch and a battery charging
socket. A led light on top of the box indicates when the unit is switched on.
On the bottom of the control box are 4 non-slip
feet to prevent it moving when it is used on a table and there is also a
threaded hole in the base to allow it to be mounted to a tripod or any other
mount that has a standard mounting screw. If used with a Hague Jib we do
offer a mounting bracket that would allow the control box to be mounted to the
metre cable is supplied to connect the control box to
the head. Optional longer cables are available should you need to have the
control box further away from the head.
