HDN DC Drive for ROAD JIB Camera Crane

HDN PRO Drive for Road Jib allows to perform smooth rise up and fall down movements of Jib and custom timelapse creations.

HDN DC drive works with ROAD JIB. The drive allows to move the arm of the jib steadily with a setpoint speed as well and to make Timelapse photos. Quiet operation of the drive reduces the noises to the minimum on the recorded material.

HDN-ZN-5 POWER UNIT

HDN-ZN-5 power unit is attched to GIANT tripod leg with a clamping knob. Transmission of power is achieved thanks to the toothed belt attached to the counterweight arm of the jib.

CONTROLLER AION α

controller is equipped with a 2,5mm Trigger jack to connect the shutter release cable.

Drive can be supplied from either AC adapter or three R6/AA batteries. Drive controller is equipped with 1/4" mounting hole that allows to mount it on devices with the use of VARIO ARM - Classic 8" or 11".

CONTROLLING PROGRAMS

VIDEO mode: VIDEO mode is designed for smooth shots from the camera or a photo camera mounted on a cart of Slidekamera device. It is possible to control the direction and speed of the shift using SPEED knob.
LOOP mode: LOOP mode similarly to VIDEO mode, is designed for smooth shots from the camera or a photo camera mounted on a cart of Slidekamera device. In this mode, when the drive encounters too much resistance, it automatically starts to move in the opposite direction.
TIMELAPSE mode: Timelapse shots synchronized with the movement of the cart (Motion Timelapse). In this mode, the operator sets the length of the jump and time at which the drive stops thus enabling to take a photo without a motion blur.
In PRO version thanks to the cable release that connects the controller with the photo camera, the drive controller releases the shutter in time when the cart is motionless. If you do not have the PRO version, we suggest using a wireless timer and shutter release.
  • Interval values: 1-300s
  • Length of jump values: 0,2 – 999mm

It is aimed not only at Slidekamera customers, but also at all photo and video enthusiasts, professional and amateur alike.
