CineShooter is a true nodal head that can support cameras up to 15lbs and can control up to 5 axes of motion control out of the box. It is a tool that can check many filmmaker's boxes with a variety of accessories to expand weight capacity and additional axes coming in the near future, as well as multiple control options and a variety of shooting modes currently available.
Please Note: Orders typically will ship in 2-3 days after being placed.
Units are shipping with a stable tested firmware, but not all features are supported at this time. Regular firmware releases will be published throughout the first quarter of 2021 as features become available, please see below for more information.
Born from the technology and architecture of our two wildly popular camera motion control systems, CineShooter was designed from the ground up as an entirely new ecosystem of camera movement that bridges the gap between the feature-rich, high performance and dependability of CineDrive, and the affordable, easy-to-use Second Shooter systems, all while riding the bleeding edge of this techology and advancing what is possible in camera motion control.
This nodal pan and tilt head is packed with features, including a variety of ways to power, control, program, and operate your camera moves… but this isn’t just another pan and tilt head.
This is a completely new kind of tool that is fully supported with an ecosystem of major accessories, as well as the support of several popular third party accessories and software previously unavailable on our motion control systems. CineShooter is an ideal choice for serious filmmakers looking for the best of both words— a hybrid motion control system that offers both affordability and high performance.
