Matthews 417013 - The CAM Tank - Low & Dutch Shots with Fluid Pan & Tilt Capacity


Matthews CAM Tank is designed to accept all large format camera plates or direct mount to any large or medium format camera equipped with 3/8"-16 mounting holes. The CAM Tank was designed for extremely low shots, without taking away your ability to pan and tilt the camera. lt is also used to achieve dutch angles when mounted to a fluid head, or shots designed to be pointed straight down off of a fluid head on a tripod or jib. The bottom of the plate has 17 strategically placed 3/8"-16 tapped holes spaced 1'' apart, complying with Motion pcture industry standards. The system is CNC machined out of 6061 T-6 aluminum, stainless steel hardware. The pan bearing uses a machined polyoxymethlyene, delrin disk, which self-lubricates and has an endurance rating 100 x more than any plastic. The tilt system uses 4 premium NSK deep grooved, ball bearings, made in Japan. Both pan and tilt functions come with brakes for lock of shots and camera safety.
