The Magnum fluid head is the flagship in the Cartoni range of camera supports, with a payload up to 130 kg (287 lbs)


As the flagship in the Cartoni range, the Magnum fluid head is designed to support fully decked Studio and Outside Broadcast cameras equipped with long boxed lenses, viewfinder or large teleprompter.


The Magnum incorporates patented counterbalance system as well as Cartoni’s advanced “planetary” fluid damping modules.


The counterbalance system is ideally suited to operate with cameras featuring a high center of gravity and weighing between 30 kg & 130 kg (66 lbs & 287 lbs). Cameras within this weight range can be perfectly balanced through the entire 130° tilt angle.


The frictionless fluid damping modules give an extraordinary performance from freewheeling to maximum drag, over an extended temperature range.


The continuously variable fluid control knobs are ergonomically located at each side of the head, easy to reach and connected to the digital readout for pan, tilt & balance, allowing the operator for quick set-ups even in low light conditions.


The effective control brakes on both, pan and tilt mode are located on the right side of the control panel for an easy one-hand operation.


Two threaded holes for the teleprompter tubes are located on the front of the sliding platform.


The Magnum interfaces directly with any Mitchell flat tripod, and all existing pedestals featuring 4-hole system.
