Dual Axis MECHA C2 Controller

Here comes the MECHA C2 controller, a dedicated dual axis controller with an OLED display and external battery. The display can guide you through all the major operations and settings, making C2 much more intuitive than the single axis C1 controller with LED indicators only.

The use of external battery means you can carry spare batteries and quickly refuel MECHA before or during a shooting session.

A power cable splitter (optional) is available for using 2 sets of batteries at the same time for extended operation and / or changing batteries without a pause.

Dual Axis Mecha C2-E1 w/NN3 MK2

Finally a compact and very affordable dual axis pan tilt head solution. We use parts from NN3 MK2, RS2 lower rail, together with 2 MECHA E1 rotators, a C2 controller and a dual battery holder.

Use as a single axis horizontal rotator for single row shooting of turntable object VR. Or use as a dual axis rotator for both horizontal and vertical movements. The MECHA C2 and E1 being modular in design will be compatible with future Mecha rotators and controllers paving the way for future low-cost upgrades.
This setup supports a camera/lens up to 2 kg (4.4 lb) and a turning torque of 16 kg-cm (13.9 lb-in). NPP adjustment is up to 105mm from the pivot point. It is ideal for mirror-less, compact and lighter DSLR cameras. Shoot 360° panoramas or even high-resolution gigapixel images.

  • Two MECHA E1 Rotator (F9900)
