The Cobra Crane is very versatile piece of equipment enabling the camera to capture everything from sweeping panoramas to tight tracking shots of a moving subject. A control lever allows the camera to be tilted down for interesting overhead shots. The included monitor lets you see everything the camera does. The Cobra Crane can be paired with a flex track system to add even more possibilities and movement to camera shots. Relatively light weight and easy to set up, the Cobra Crane will give your shots another dimension.
