Vinten VB3-AP2M Vision Blue3 Camera Support System

With Mid-level spreader

The Vision blue3 head and tripod system delivers effortless support, freeing you to focus on the filming. With the widest payload capacity in its class, the perfect balance and control can be adapted for DSLRs and camcorders from just 2.1kg when using the new Vision blueBridge.

The Vinten Vision blue3 system offers outstanding quality of camera support with its infinitely adjustable Perfect Balance and Lubricated Friction (LF) drag technology, freeing you to focus on getting the best from your camera.

Now comes equipped with the Vision Bluedridge accessory plate. The Vision blueBridge accessory extends the lower range of payloads for each Vision blue system.

Quickly and simply attaching to the underside of the camera, it raises the camera above the platform allowing lower weight cameras to be used that would otherwise be too light for the counterbalance system to balance perfectly.
