The Academy Award winning Shotmaker Elite combines a powerful yet smoooth running camera car with a ready to use crane in one hardworking vehicle. Take command of an Elite on your next production and discover why it's been called the most significant movie making tool in a generation!

Features include:
  • A crane arm that reaches a lens height of 23' (higher with risers). The arm can rotate through 360 degrees without cable wrap-up, with the vehicle in motion or stationary.

  • The center post which supports the arm can be hydraulically adjusted to compensate for camber in the road, keeping the camera horizontally level at all times.
