Built for modern single and three chip camcorders weighing up to 6.5lbs, the CobraCrane I is a single bar crane that provides shots from an ant's point of view up to 8 feet high. Sweeping vista shots of panoramas and sporting events have never been easier or more dramatic. Nothing compares to the sweeping shots obtainable with the CobraCrane I 
Tripod and counterweights are not included.

From the ground level, the camera can be tilted up over 90 degrees. Shooting from the ground up gives you incredible perspective when shooting trees, buildings or people to show how tall things really are. From over the top, the CobraCrane I offers a tilt down perspective capturing the “larger than life” shots. The over the top shot is ideal for cooking and food marketing videos. CobraCrane I also offers a framing mode where the subject stays framed while the camera is boomed up and down.

CobraCrane I works with our Extension Kit 1 adding three-feet to your five-foot crane. When used in with the extension, CobraCrane I can reach up to 11 feet high. The ease and flexibility will make this system one of the most popular tools in your toolbox.

Combined with one of our dollies, the CobraCrane I offers users a combination of swings, booms, tilts, rolls and dolly moves. Incredible shots are simple to create and master in minutes.

Tripod recomendations:

Any tripod that currently is used with a shoulder mount Beta, Digibeta, Varicam, Arri, Viper or Cinealta camera will most likely do very well with a CobraCrane. Your tripod is not listed here it may still work. Look for the weight rating of the tripod you have on the manufacturer's site. Also if your tripod has a crank up head then its a good indication that its design is meant for heavier cameras and cranes. Keep in mind the size and weight of crane you plan to use.
