The Vinten 3D wedge adaptor is designed to facilitate the proper balancing of under/through beamsplitter 3D rigs on Vinten pan and tilt heads. By offsetting the head’s level position by a few degrees the balance mechanism produces a back-torque when the camera is level, this enables the centre of gravity of the payload (3D rig, lenses and cameras) to be forward of the tilt axis.
Balances rigs which cannot be mounted to a conventional head in a balanced position due to physical restrictions
Allows more clearance for the under-slung camera therefore increases downward tilt available
Quick release of rig, wedge assembly from head
Suitable for medium duty Vinten Vector/Vision heads (430, 250)
