ABOUT THE EQUIPMENT The Ultimate Arm is a high-speed, high-torque, gyro-stabilized remote-controlled camera crane. It is designed and developed for extreme operating conditions and high-image stability. Unlike the other camera cranes, the arm and counter balanced rear are independent of each other which allows the crane arm to absorb the frequency and reduce the oscillating effect that often plagues more rigid arms. The Ultimate Arm is a driving force in the film and television industry, prized for its ease of operation and flexible use.
