The patent pending Atlas 30 (formerly Pegasus Heavy Lifter) uses 5/8" chromed steel rods and a body precision machined from a single block of aluminum. It was developed in collaboration with the studio crew from Stillmotion.ca to meet their needs for rapid setup, rock solid stability, silky smooth movements, light weight and compactness for air travel.
The system is designed for ultra-smooth movements on loads up to 30lbs using long even long focal length lenses, and will accept heavier loads up to 45lbs with no complaints.
The system uses a highly refined steel ball bearing system. It can be broken down by hand for easy transport. The Atlas 30 units have a 100mm bowl integrated into them, making the unit lighter, stronger
