Vinten VB5-AP2M Blue5 Camera Support System

The Vision blue5 camera support system is ideal for uncompromising performance designed and built with the long lasting quality of a Vinten system. Offering genuine Broadcast quality pan, tilt and drag, the Vision blue5 provides a full ±90° of smooth tilt movement with a counterbalance range of 5.5 kg to 12 kg (@100mm CofG), perfect for supporting a wide range of cameras and accessories.

The ‘infinitely variable’ LF drag system delivers silky smooth framing and on-demand whip pan movement, while Vision’s perfect balancing system allows total control. The Vision blue5 has the added advantage of an illuminated levelling bubble for quick and convenient set-up.

The Vision blue5 system is available packaged with a two stage Pozi-Loc tripod, ground or mid-level spreader and a branded soft case.

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.

Key Features:

  • Less than 2.5kg in weight
  • ±90° Tilt Range
  • Continuously Variable Patented Perfect Balance & LF Drag System
  • High contrast Blue Illuminated Levelling Bubble
  • 75mm Ball Base
