Hague Camera Supports Releases The PH100

News Image
Hague Camera Supports has released a new motorised pan and tilt powerhead, suitable for small handheld camcorders, compact cameras, lightweight DSLPs, miniature cameras and action camera such as the GoPro.

The Hague PH100 Mini Remote Pan & Tilt Powerhead is priced at £450 (ex VAT), and £540 (inc VAT).

The Powerhead can be mounted to a tripod, jib or wall bracket either vertically or underslung and supports up to 1kg. It is supplied with a control box which allows the user to adjust the speed and direction of the head with the capability to pan & tilt through 360°.

PH100 Mini Pan & Tilt Powerhead
The Hague PH100 Powerhead will pan and tilt through 360 degrees, enabling the camera to point directly up or down as required. It is powered by two geared motors, with the camera's tilt being belt driven, allowing the head to provide smooth movement with minimum backlash.

The camera plate on the tilt drive has three mounting positions for the different sizes of camera which enables the camera to be correctly balanced. With all DSLR cameras it is essential that they are correctly balanced, and this can be more difficult depending upon the lens used, so we would recommend the BCP Balance Correction Plate which is listed as a related product below.

The speed of movement is variable, from the slowest crawl up to 24 degrees per second (0 to 4RPM). The drive motors are reasonably quiet, but will be heard if the camera's onboard microphone is used in quiet locations, similar to most powerheads on the market. The Head can be mounted to a tripod, jib or wall bracket and it has a standard ¼" threaded hole in its base. A ¼" stud with locking wing nut is also supplied to enable the head to be mounted to a beam or Jib.

PH100 Control Box
The Hague Control Box has two variable speed control knobs which give the head a precision pan and tilt movement in either direction, from a slow crawl up to the required speed. You can also pan and tilt simultaneously. The head is powered by a rechargeable internal battery, allowing the power head to be used anywhere without the need of a power supply.

On the back of the control box are switches to change the direction of the control knobs and a socket for the control cable. On the side of the control box is an on/off switch and a battery charging socket. A led light on top of the box indicates when the unit is switched on.

On the bottom of the control box are 4 non-slip feet to prevent it moving when it is used on a table and there is also a ¼" threaded hole in the base to allow it to be mounted to a tripod or any other mount that has a standard ¼" mounting screw. If used with a Hague Jib, we offer a mounting bracket that would allow the control box to be mounted to the crane.

Control Cable
A 5-metre cable is supplied to connect the control box to the head. Optional longer cables are available should you need to have the control box further away from the head.
