Vinten Brings New Camera Accessory To BVE 2013

Vinten has announced it will be promoting its new camera operator accessory, the 'Vision bluebridge', at BVE 2013.
The accessory works with any of the pan and tilt heads in the Vision blue range to extend the payloads which can be balanced.
It offers flexibility to camera operators using the original Vision blue, the recently launched Vision blue3, or the Vision blue5.
The bluebridge works by shifting the payload range down and extending the payload capabilities of the chosen Vision blue system. This means operators effectively need one single tripod system for their shoots.
The Vision blue family encompasses the three head and tripod systems, providing balance for payloads as low as 2.1kg/4.6lbs, to suit the lightest of camcorders and DSLRs, right up to 12kg/26.5lb for the larger professional cameras.
The Vision bluebridge also offers an additional offset (45mm) of the payload from the tilt axis. The counterbalance system is required to provide more output per unit weight of payload, and therefore the total balance capability of the pan and tilt head is shifted downwards.
Andrew Butler, strategic planning and project manager, Vinten, says: "We have created this simple accessory so that users can achieve the perfectly balanced and genuine broadcast performance they have come to expect from their Vision blue heads, for an extended range of payloads. The hugely versatile Vision bluebridge now enables camera operators to satisfy all of their filming needs using a single Vision blue system."
The Vision bluebridge will be shown alongside the recently announced Vision blue3 for the first time on Vinten’s stand #F022 at BVE 2013, which takes place at Excel London on 26-28 February.
