The PTX Model 3 PRO PanTilt Head is designed and manufactured in Texas, USA where we have complete control of all components, software and firmware, thus minimizing the impact of parts shortages and unpredictable delivery times.

This design combines the best features of the previous models into a sleek, powerful and whisper-quiet precision robotic head that’s a great platform for any camera – from a Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4k or Pocket Cinema – to the URSA and Studio Camera 4K styles, plus other larger form factors like Canon C models, Lumix Box Cinema, Red, Arri, and the Sony FX line.
