Motion Control

The new Floatcam Motion Control system (MoCo) is now shipping from Floatcam UK.

This digital MoCo device, designed specifically for use with the Floatcam DollyCrane and DollyCrane HD brings portable motion control to customers at a very low cost.

Consisting of a digital control handset, cable and digital step motor, and with new RF wireless capability, it can be operated up to 50m from the DollyCrane.

It features a series of factory programmed moves for quick and easy setup, but is also highly programmable. It can record and store manual movement as well as use entirely pre-programmed parameters including start & stop points, speed ramping and repeat moves. When used with either Nikon or Canon DSLRs*, it can also control shutter release, shutter speed and exposure for motion time-lapse shooting.

You can also extend pre-recorded movements, so if the original movement had a 10″ duration, you can extend it to 30″/60″ etc for ultra slow tracking movement. It has a maximum tracking speed of 20cm/sec.

The MoCo unit can be used on the DollyCrane in both slider and tower setups. It is supplied with an AC power adaptor as standard but a D-tap – 2.5mm power cable is available for powering from suitable professional batteries.
