The Osprey Elite is extremely versatile, designed to support the latest range of digital, portable and full facility cameras for both studio and OB productions. The two-stage column offers on-shot movement from a minimum height of 68.5 cm / 27 inches to a maximum height of 145.5 cm / 57.3 inches, and features full crab and steer facilities controlled from a central steering ring.
The studio version of the Osprey Elite includes cable guards, whilst the larger wheels of the OB version offer greater ground clearance. Both versions have an exceptional combination of lightness and structural integrity giving maximum stability whilst still allowing the column and dolly base to fold for easy transportation.
The Osprey Elite is also ideal for use on track when combined with Vinten's Tracking Skid. Other optional accessories include a portable hand pump to counterbalance the pneumatic system, a large steering ring and OB wheel cable guards.

Crab and Steer Facility
Crab and steer functionality is the optimum solution for on-shot movement and general positioning of pedestals. In crab mode all three wheels are interlinked to steer simultaneously and the pedestal travels in the direction of the steering indicator on the steering ring. This allows the operator to easily follow the action on-shot, tracking in and out and crabbing from side to side with minimal effort. Steer mode locks the position of two wheels and then the third wheel turns as the steering ring is rotated. This enables the operator to set the pedestal position prior to a shoot, or to negotiate awkward obstacles.
Vinten pan and tilt heads and pedestals are the professional's choice because thanks to Vinten's unique Perfect Balance technology the support they provide is effortless - allowing you to focus on the perfect shot for longer.
Seperates for Easy Transportation
Vinten provide a number of pedestals that can easily be separated into skid and column for easy breakdown, transport and set-up. This added portability does not compromise the functionality of the pedestals. For example the Osprey Elite provides extensive on-shot capability, crab and steer facility and Perfect Balance - despite the fact that it can be broken down to fit into the boot of a car with no problem!
