Designed with both broadcast professionals and filmmakers in mind, the MOTUS22 tripod kit is an ideal choice for anybody looking for solid payload support. Included in the kit is the MH22 fluid head, featuring a continuous variable counterbalance that gives operators unparalleled adjustment capabilities on the fly for payloads up to an impressive 48.5lbs. With 1 – 4 grades of independent fluid drag adjustments (and separate locking knobs) for both pan and tilt, allowing the operator to easily adjust the head to suit their shooting style, the MH22 is an incredibly responsive option for professionals that are looking for optimal control and reliability. Longer and wider than its competitors, the MH22’s double-locking plate ensures that the camera is securely mounted to the sticks quickly and efficiently, snapping into place from the top of the head. This quick release system is a fantastic perk for larger rigs that struggle to move into place with a rear slider. Speaking of the sticks, the ECT100M 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod supports payloads of up to 220.5lbs, is made of lightweight carbon fiber, and has a bowl size of 100mm. This 3-Section tripod has designated flip lock levers for each stage, which can be raised to a maximum height of 59.6″ and lowered to a minimum height of 21.9″. No matter the setting, the ECT100M provides exceptional stability with its extendable mid-level spreader. Quick-release legs allow for even more flexibility to securely adapt to the terrain and then lock the sticks into place, while removable rubber covers for the spiked feet help to protect more delicate work surfaces.
Large broadcast camera? Complex cinematography rig? Not a problem. Secured with its 100mm bowl, the MH22 boasts payload capabilities of up to 48.5lbs, providing sturdy support for your next award-winning shot.
Quick Release Plate/Dual Locking System
Continuous Variable Counterbalance
MH22’s step-less system offers continuous variable counterbalance support from the maximum payload all the way down to zero, preventing a camera from tilting forward or backward on its own. From here, MH22 really jumps beyond its competition. A hand-crank and visualized date display allows operators to fine-tune exact counterbalance settings, maintaining that perfect angle for an exceptional shot.
Illuminated Bubble Level
Carbon Fiber Leg Tubes/Metal Body
The 3-Section carbon fiber leg tubes are your quintessential tough guys with a soft side. They’ll hold up more than 200lbs of camera equipment without busting, but their lightweight carbon fiber material will save your back from the aches and pains often seen after lugging around weightier aluminum tripods.
The extendable mid-level spreader on ECT100M offers a great deal of flexibility in a wide variety of situations. Working on rugged terrain? Activate the quick release feature with a small lever to easily remove one – or all – sections of the spreader and bring balance to the tripod. Tight spaces are also easy to navigate, thanks to a locking knob below the spreader that helps keep the tripod legs closed and steady.
Removable Rubber Feet
When you’re shooting indoors, a tripod’s spiked feet aren’t the best fit for delicate or slick surfaces. Thankfully, the ECT100M comes with removable rubber feet that will protect the floors (and keep you from sliding around) inside, but then pop right back off when you find your way outside again.
