"We dispensed with the tilt plate and bolted the tilt motor straight onto the camera rig. This saved us some weight but more importantly it put the axis of the motor at the nodal point of the rig. This meant that the motor was under virtualy no strain when tilting and as a result we were able to use a 29Kg rig for six week with no mechanical or electrical problems whatsoever. The head is clearly much stonger than is claimed! For anyone who wants to know it was two Red Epics on a P+S Technik Freestyle rig."

“The Key to THE KEY HEAD is its versatility, easy of use, compact design and simplicity. A remote head that isn’t over engineered is lightweight yet rugged, precise and accurate, simple to set-up & use. THE KEY HEAD is definitely on my wish list as an everyday remote head. Highly recommended, 5 Stars!”

Peter Field – D.O.P. - “Agent Crush”

“The Keyhead is a simple yet incredibly versatile piece of kit. It can be used overslung or underslung for pan and tilt or horizontally for pan and roll or tilt and roll with minimum set up time between modes. On a demanding model and puppet shoot it is saving a great amount of valuable time.”

Keith Manning – Key Grip - “Agent Crush”
