If you're like us, wanting your kit to look like new, especially "in front of a client", then you will certainly not be disappointed. Just as you wouldn't want to turn up at a shoot in a battered car, you'd be likewise taking a risk if you turn up with a battered up old tripod. Take a look and see what you think, and remember that Vinten (Vitec) is the leading company world-wide for professional camera support systems because most broadcast companies and producers specify them because of their rugged resistant long life. THIS LISTING DOES NOT INCLUDE A TRIPOD - NO TRIPOD. See our other listings for tripods.
Apart from looking like new, the thing we like most about this head is that you can use any camera from the weight of a DSLR 35mm camera to a fully accessorised full-size broadcast camera and the second thing we liked most is it's weight, a mere 5.7 lbs / 2.6 Kg. It will handle cameras/camcorders weighing between 1Kg - 10 Kg - there is no other head in the world that offers that kind of flexibility and Vinten achieved it by allowing you to easily change the tensioning spring yourself for one that suits the load you're using - no screwdriver required.
We shall supply the head with one of the following springs. NOTE: WE DO NOT SELL SPRINGS SEPARATELY. PLEASE CHOOSE WHICH SPRING BEST SUITS YOUR PURPOSE FROM THE LIST BELOW No.

The Vision 3 is the smallest and lightest pan & tilt head in the Vision range. Designed for the new digital age of smaller, lighter video cameras, the Vision 3, weighing only 5.0 lb 2.27 Kg. Without the pan bar, incorporates many key features you would usually only expect to see in larger, more expensive heads.
The Vision 3 comes with an illuminated levelling bubble for quick and easy set-up, calibrated drag controls using Vinten's Lubricate Friction (LF) system, plus a full ±90° of smooth tilt movement. To provide balance over a range of payloads from 2.2 lb to 22 lb, the Vision 3 incorporates a unique and easily interchangeable spring. Perfect Balance with Interchangeable Springs The Vision 3 pan & tilt head achieves the Perfect Counter Balance by means of an innovative and unique interchangeable spring balance mechanism, allowing the use of a variety of camcorders with different payloads. This allows the heads to tilt through the full range of ±90° in perfect balance. Eliminating a considerable amount of physical effort required by the operator to control the tilting action.
LF (Lubricated Friction) Drag Control To provide the right amount of resistance, the Vision 3 uses the field proven Vinten LF (Lubricated Friction) damping system. Featuring a progressive, friction free drag, where the torque is provided from a sliding contact between dissimilar surfaces. The variable drag is adjusted to provide a non-linear torque speed characteristic, which allows "whip pan" movements. Quick Setup The unique design features allow fast setup - a must if you are continuously on the move.
The levelling bowl has a double threaded screw shank, which allows the bowl lock to be tightened and released quickly. Very handy when you are constantly adjusting the bowl to level the camera (especially on uneven terrain). Tough die-cast body ensures robustness, while quality design and construction provide a lifetime of precision. Adjustable camera mounting plate with unique rubber grip strips holds the camera rock steady. Built-in illuminated bubble for horizontal levelling, ensuring easy levelling even under unfavourable lighting conditions.
