Tripod heads have been a key technique in film production for many years, in part because fluid motion is closely related to the "look of the film." As films are shot on increasingly complex locations, the demands increase. ARRIHEAD 2 rental responds to these demands. It has a patented design of drive elements and guide rails, is compact and, most importantly, stable over a wide range.

The drive system and the ARRIHEAD II rental guides are new. It has a patented, precision-ground steel chain that drives the tilting motion, ensuring smooth, backlash-free action.

Previous designs of geared head tilt rails required side guides to maintain accuracy. However, in the patented ARRIHEAD 2 rental design, the side guide is one of the rails, ensuring accuracy. This design also distributes the weight of the headstock evenly throughout the mechanism, eliminating nicks, dents, and flat spots in the rails caused during transport and handling that affect the smoothness of the headstock.

ARRIHEAD II hire also has an operator feature that no other head has ever had: one of the tilt wheels can be adjusted laterally. This allows the operator to move the tilt wheel from its normal operating position to any outward position within a 38-degree radius. So you can select with Arri Head 2 for rent the most comfortable working angle, and it allows cameras with rear-mounted loaders to clear the tilt wheel in extreme upward tilt positions without having to add a riser.
