The SKATER Junior can be equipped with a wide range of smaller camera heads from manufactures such as Cartoni, Sachtler, OConnor, Manfrotto, Silk and others or with photo heads, like three way heads, ball heads etc with a 3/8" or 1/4" mounting screw. To maintain a low lens position, these camera heads should have a flat base or a removable bowl. Engravings on the bottom side of the base plate indicate several sets of mounting holes for different manufactures.
The new patented adjustable wheel shows detailled scales in metric and imperial which allows to directly determine
the radius for a rotation tracking shot. No other adjustment is required. To execute linear tracking shots the adjustable wheel is set to a parallel position within seconds. Of course rotating shots can also be set up with a laser pointer which is identical to the one used on the SKATER® Mini. A wide range of additional accessories from the SKATER® Mini can be used on the Junior as well (see below).
