camBLOCK introduced Adventure at NAB – a fully featured, portable motion control camera system. camBLOCK Adventure builds upon the company’s existing line of motion control systems. Adventure enables filmmakers to create repeatable and precise camera moves for real-time effects, motion time-lapse and animation. It is smaller, lighter and more portable than the company’s original modular system, having all three axis built into a single unit that can be controlled from a wireless mobile device.
“After our successful KickStarter campaign last year we have been working extremely hard to bring this new lower cost and more portable and rugged camBLOCK system to the market. Adventure filmmakers will be blown away once they start shooting with this,” said Stewart Mayer, camBLOCK’s founder and chief inventor.
Adventure is designed for small to medium sized cameras such as digital SLRs and compact digital cinema cameras. Pan, tilt and dolly mechanisms are housed in a single unit allowing for fast and easy setup. One of the most innovative features of Adventure is its tilt mechanism, allowing for a high degree of nodal tilt without having any bulky side support. This design dramatically shrinks the system’s form factor. Key features of the system also include an expandable track system, built in camera trigger, WiFi control with an advanced Android app, and accessory ports for future expansion.
