The EP880XK Pneumatic Pedestal Kit is designed for broadcast camera operators who require heavy payload capacity and tight counterbalance. This pedestal system has a counterbalance payload of 88 lbs and will carry an ENG camera with a box lens and servo controls.
The fluid head features 9x micro counterbalance settings (3 steps), a payload switch (2 steps) for a total of 54-steps of adjustable counterbalance system. The system also offers 11 steps of pan & tilt drag.
The Pneumatic Pedestal includes the E-Image Mono-Lock leg design and the Easy Lock base plate system. The pedestal system, without the fluid head mounted, can support payloads weighing up to 110 pounds. This pneumatic pedestal includes an air release to achieve the perfect balance of the center column.
The fluid head includes a 150mm bowl mount with a twist lock to secure the teleprompter and camera payload.
The 205mm tripod plate mounts the teleprompter system to the fluid head and provides an extra 8 inches of sliding range to counterbalance your entire teleprompter and camera setup.
The dual panhandles allow you to maintain firm control on your shots. These panhandles also work perfectly for mounting zoom, focus, and iris controls. The length range for each panhandle is 16.7″ to 24″
CARBON FIBER LEGS
The pedestal features dual carbon fiber legs for each section. When mounted onto the heavy-duty dolly, these pedestal legs can provide support up to 110 lbs.
VERSATILE DOLLY SHOTS
The dolly base has track lock wheels to maintain direction during complex dollying and tracking shots. By locking the wheels in certain positions, radial arc shots can also be achieved.
