The CinebotMini was designed to be a user-friendly and flexible live-action camera robot that is compact and lightweight.
The new Cinebot Mini gives users full manual control over camera positions with the whole goal of making complex motion control movements simple.
The Cinebot Mini has a maximum camera payload capacity of 10kg / 22.04 lb so it was designed for use with mirrorless hybrids and smaller-sized digital cinema cameras in mind. It has an arm reach of 1.3m and it can even run on battery power for an entire shoot day
It is available on track or pedestal, and it integrates motion control with the familiarity and type of control that is used on everyday sets, using regular grip equipment. Cinematographers can hand-hold the camera in various positions, and the robotic arm will record them. They can also push the track like a standard dolly, and this movement can be recorded and played back.
There are flexible control options, from direct handheld manipulation to simple control through a mobile device, with all information recorded in Flair.
