Model Description:
Pan and Tilt Head up to 264 lbs with perfect counter balance, and other new features

Model Details

The Vector 950 offers an increased capacity of up to 120 kg and at this payload provides ±60° of perfectly balanced tilt, allowing the safe control of today's long OB lenses.The compact and durable Vector 950 head incorporates a wealth of features. Set-up is aided through the inclusion of a tilt deadlock, Quickfix groove in the base, retractable carry handle and illuminated controls, as well as an LCD display that offers a 24 hour clock, stopwatch and counterbalance readout that can be set for known payloads. The pan and tilt brakes are positioned at the rear of the head, making them easily accessible, and the camera plate can be simply adjusted forward and back using a retractable, ergonomically designed adjuster.The Vector 950 features TF Drag, allowing outstanding whip pan control and an extensive operational temperature range from-40°C through to +60°C. The high output tilt drag modules also provide superb holding force and enhanced control in windy conditions. Combining these characteristics with infinite Perfect Balance adjustment ensures that the effort needed to control the effect of a heavy, moving camera payload remains constant and predictable, eliminating a major distraction during filming. Infinitely adjustable Perfect Balance system TF Drag offers extensive operational temperature range and enhanced control Illuminated controls for low-light situations Counterbalance readout for repeatable camera set-up Up to ±90° of tilt


True caliper disk brakes arrest movement during operation, and the center lock button firmly fixes the head in a horizontal position for safely mounting and dismounting camera payloads.

Operation is streamlined with the brightly illuminated rear-facing status LCD and bubble level, and dual pan-arm rosettes allow left- or two-handed configurations.

Perfect Counterbalance
The Vector 950 achieves perfect counterbalance by means of continuously-variable spring mechanism. This allows the head to tilt through the full range of -90 to +90° in perfect balance, eliminating a considerable amount of physical effort required by the operator. Since the camera is perfectly balanced, it can be left at any angle - totally hands free - without having to engage the tilt brake.
TF (Thin Film) Drag Control
The Vinten TF (Thin Film) damping system provides consistent drag performance in demanding conditions from -40°F to +140°F (-40°C to 60°C). It offers total control for precise movement and excellent camera control during the critical slow start-up of the shot, providing seamless transitions into whip pans and instant recovery to the original drag setting at the end of the movement.
LCD Time/Stopwatch/Counterbalance Display
An LCD display located on the back of the head facing the operator provides a 24-hour clock, stopwatch, and indicates the current level of counterbalance selected. This is particularly useful when necessary to regularly change the camera, lens, magazine, viewfinder or battery configuration on the fly and re-balance with predictable results.
Illuminated Bubble Level
Built-in illuminated bubble level facilitates efficient leveling even under unfavorable lighting conditions.
Caliper Disk Brakes
To efficiently and reliably arrest pan and tilt movement, the Vector 70 employs true caliper disk brakes which, for safety purposes, are on by default, requiring operator action to release.
