The Sachtler 5201 2-75 Vario Pedestal is suited for modern broadcast cameras and offers OB and studio packages. The compact, modular construction of these pedestals achieves maximum stability at a relatively low weight. This pedestal is very user friendly offering a Vario dolly and a Quickfix fitting for fast and easy setups without screws.
The modular design of the pedestals means that the steering wheel, column and dolly form three easily portable lightweight components which can be assembled in seconds without tools.
The crab-and-steer function enables simple maneuvering with defined rolling turns. A small steering wheel is available and can even be used with a teleprompter.
A column lock and Sachtler Quickfix mount are offered for fast changes of the fluid head.
This pedestal offers safe air charging with pressure relief valves. The air charging feature saves on fluid pneumatic costs and can be done with a hand pump or compressor.
The Vario dolly works well for applications concerning narrow passage and portability.
