VariZoom Showed CP Micro and Control System at 2016 NAB

VariZoom introduced the CP Micro frame-accurate drivetrain and the River control system at 2016 NAB.

Using the same control system as VariZoom’s CP and CP JR heads, the CP Micro offers the same design at a much more affordable price and in a much smaller and lighter package. It is ideal for Canon C100 and C300, Sony FS5, DSLRs and any other compact cameras under 12 pounds.

VariZoom said the CP Micro sacrifices nothing in quality but is tailored to meet the needs of shooters who need a smaller and lighter package for use with their compact cameras.

The CP Micro works with any jib, remote pan tilt or multi-camera studio control system. The price is $4,000.

The CP Micro is compatible with all of the CP controllers, including pan bars, hand wheels, advanced console, Jibstick Pro, Jibstick JR and the new "River" multi-head 28-axis console.
