Vinten Unveils Fusion Upgrade

News Image
Vinten has announced upgrades to its Fusion Tripod Fluid Head. The Fusion FH-145 has been updated to offer almost twice the available drag at maximum than the original model.

The FH-145 S2 provides operators with high quality broadcast output, in addition to three distinct steps. Step One gives the identical drag levels offered by the original FH-145, while Step Two and Step Three offer additional drag levels.

It is designed to support typical camera and lens packages up to 66kg/145lbs.

Neil Gardner, Product Manager, said: "The FH-145 is our flagship robotic head, and is widely recognized as the class-leading performance for studio automation. This is an incredibly flexible system that can be used as a fully robotic pan-and-tilt head controlled remotely, or can be instantly switched to manual control when a cameraman is preferred during the production. With the increased choice of drag in manual mode, the FH-145 S2 provides the cameraman with finer control over the 'feel' of the head's movement which offers the user all the more flexibility for shot control and creativity."
