The 9.Solutions Mini C-Pan arm is the On-the go version of its big brother C-Pan arm, a 55cm long slider with a pan range of 140cm horizontal and vertical. Weighing only 1,5 Kgs and measuring 400mm when folded, it makes for a perfect camera companion for the lite traveling videographer.
Even with its compact traveling size, it still makes it possible to make 70cm of straight movements. As its big brother, it is also able to make inward and outward curved shots both horizontal and vertically (for vertical shots, a tiltable tripod and ball head is needed) or in-outs and flyovers.
I really liked the Mini C-pan arm for its size and quick operation. So versatile when you dont want to set up a slider. Also some of the movements the Mini C can do, will be hard to do with a regular slider and some impossible, like the curvature moves…
I met Bo Christensen, director of 9.Solutions and designer of the Mini C-Pan arm at IBC 2017, where he showed it to me. See it here…
In the near future I will receive a Mini C-Pan arm for a review in Copenhagen. So stay tuned! You could like our Facebook page here to get notified when the review is out.
