New EZ Head RPT 25 motorized remote pan/tilt from EZ FX

Just landed is our new  EZ Head RPT 25 motorized remote pan/tilt from EZ FX based in Ocoee, Florida. The EZ Head RPT 25 can carry a camera weight of upto 25 pounds. What we like about this remote head is the ability for it to be converted into a revolving turntable for product shots. The motors and joystick from the EZ Head RPT 25 can also be used on the soon to be released EZ FX Slider that has gearing for automated movement. Other cool features is the auto calibration of the joystick that takes four seconds, ramping speed function, direction switches for both pan & tilt and low clearance of the camera platform with very little protrusion below.

The remote head alone is now available separately for rentals in South Florida for $180 per day and $540 per week. A full working package is available for $420 per day or $1260 per week that includes the EZ FX Jib with Extension Kit, Heavy Duty pedestal with dolly wheels and EZ FX remote head. We also have experienced Jib operators available that can safely and quickly build the system and operate it with precision throughout your shoot.

Feel free to arrange a demo of the jib by contacting Andrae Palmer at (954) 593-0411 or email andrae at facetmedia dot com.
