The Roamer is an easily affordable option for different applications. No matter if you are shooting with Prosumer type DV and HDV cameras or broadcasting cameras, the Roamer is always able to support and offer great performance. It can be used as 4m, 6m or 8m to meet your length requirements.


  • Control system of Roamer crane adopts the digital circuit and MCU (Micro Controller Unit). The signal transmitted between control box and remote head is serial digital signal. It enhances system reliability and control sensitivity.

  • The head of Roamer crane offers the operator very smooth pan and tilt movement. Moreover, the head and control system of Roamer crane can be used separately as pan/tilt remote head system because the serial digital signal can be transmitted to extensively long distance.


Compatible with most hand-held DV&HDV cameras from all major manufacturers. It also supports broadcasting camera with less than 9kgs/19.84 lbs.

Max remote head capacity is 9kg, more than enough for most ENG configured camera.

Built with high strength aluminum alloy.

Completely tools-free setup.

Using one single steel cable to make installation much easier than any other cranes on the market.

The specially designed monitor supporting rod can tilt along with the crane arm, so the operator can easily watch the monitor all the time without adjusting the monitor's position. The supporting rod is also free to be moved in any direction. So it gives the users more flexibility to place the monitor wherever they want.

The specially designed supporting rod enables the installation of focus and iris servo motors much easier. It can easily be fitted with the majority of Canon and Fujinon lens due to its adjustable servo motor supporting rod.

The Roamer crane uses high quality connectors which ensure reliability of control system.

The tripod of a Roamer crane can be installed on a dolly, or can be placed on the ground directly with the special feet of the tripod.

Control box has drag and speed control of pan, tilt and roll. Each axis has a separate on/off switch. It can turn off the control signal to prevent the accidental rotation when the axis is fixed.

Control handle for head can control pan, tilt and roll movement of the head.

Control handle for camera has variable speed zoom control. It can also control focus, iris, start/stop recording. This single control handle enables control of different type of cameras, DV/HDV and ENG.

Equipped with tilt lock and pan lock for jib arm movement.

The complete Roamer crane sytem is packed in three flight cases (for 6m, 8m. If 4m, only two flight cases). So it makes it easy to lift and out into cars or small trucks for transportation.

The flight case which the remote head and control system are packed in has special space for other accessories: such as ENG camera adapter, battery, monitor. Therefore, the operator can just put everything into three cases and go and shoot on location without carrying more cases for other stuff.
