Cartoni Lambda 25 third axis rental. Nodal hydraulic head designs have become synonymous with Cartoni. The brand has perfected and refined the Nodal head design, making it the industry standard. The signature camera movement of the Nodal design is a unique visual style, and when combined with Cartoni's technique, the result is a performance that cannot be easily replicated. Cartoni's patented third axis option further extends the angle and full 360° panoramic rotation.


Cartoni Lambda 25 third axis head mounting

  • Install Cartoni LAMBDA 25 rental on the support (tripod, crane, dolly) after locking all safety knobs.
  • Place LAMBDA 25 rental fluid head on the Mitchel base and rotate it until it coincides with the steel notch; tighten the head firmly by screwing the locking nut under the flat base.
  • Insert the pan lock and tilt lock, and turn both the tilt drive selector and the pan drive selector to the "0" position on the Cartoni Lambda 25 rental.
  • To release the camera plate, pull the red safety lever on the cartoni lambda 25 rental head and open it fully to disengage the camera plate.
  • Place the camera plate under the camera and tighten it firmly with both screws. Try to position the cartoni lambda 25 rental camera plate centrally, taking into account the position of the centre of gravity.
  • Place the Camera on the cartoni LAMBDA 25 rental head, tilting it towards the side of the external sliding base, then push the assembly horizontally until the red safety lever clicks into place; push the red safety lever all the way down to lock it.
  • On cartoni Lambda 25 rental, unlock both vertical slider locking knobs, unfold the outer slider handle and turn it up or down until it meets the chamber centre of gravity; lock the vertical slider knobs and fold the handle into the housing position.
  • Unlock the two locking knobs on the camera mounting bracket and adjust the length of the main vertical slide to suit the camera dimensions by lifting the bracket with the crank handle, lock the knobs when in position; if necessary, unlock the red safety lever and adjust the position of the camera assembly, then secure it with the red cartoni Lambda 25 safety lever.
  • Unlock the two horizontal slide lock knobs, move the slide into position and lock the horizontal slide knobs. The centre of gravity of the camera assembly must be aligned with the axis of the cartoni Lambda 25 rental turning unit to avoid unnecessary displacement and to optimize the performance of the head. At this point, the Camera should freely rotate 360 degrees around the tilt position with the adjustable main pan bar.
  • Adjust the pan and tilt selectors to the desired drag position and unlock the pan lock to be able to initiate a movement with the Cartoni Lambda 25 head we have for rent.

  • Place the camera mounting bracket at 90° on the third axis; lock it in position with the twist lock lever; unlocks the tilt lock lever. Check the spin rotation and fix the camera mounting position by turning the cartoni lambda wheel for hire.
  • Rotate the control wheel to align the axis of rotation with the position of the Center of Gravity of the camera.
  • If the Chamber is unbalanced, the center of gravity of the entire system must be corrected. Attach one or two counterbalance rods with weights to the rosette, adjust the angular position of the rod and the position of the weight, until the camera is balanced. This operation may require several attempts to achieve a fine adjustment.
  • Unlocks twist lock lever and pan lock lever on fluid head cartoni lambda 25 rental.
