A versatile, digitally-controlled pan/tilt head
DitoGear™ OmniHead is a compact motorized pan/tilt head based on digital architecture designed for high-precision operation with payloads up to 12 kgs. Whether you shoot with a DSLR or digital cinema camera, OmniHead is another must-have in your kit.
Even the most sophisticated hardware is worth nothing without the right controller. OmniHead is compatible with all existing DitoGear™ motion controllers to cover full range of applications ranging from live-action shooting, through time-lapse and stop-motion to multi-pass visual effects.
Live action & VFX
DitoGear™ Evolution allows for setting up multi-pass effects in a matter of minutes thanks to graphic user interface and Bezier curves based motion programming. Hardware executes the moves across real-time, time-lapse or stop-motion modes with ease and precision necessary for further compositing.
DitoGear’s long-standing alliance with DZED Systems brings reliable integration of OmniHead (and other DitoGear™ motion control units) with Dragonframe software and hardware. Enhance your creativity and take full control over the scene with even richer camerawork.
Follow the stars
Due to high-precision build and unmatched performance, OmniHead is a perfect tool for enhancing your night timelapse work with creative camera work. Together with DitoGear™ wedge, you can use OmniHead even as a simple celestial tracker for long-exposure astrophotography.
Panoramic photographic captures
OmniHead coupled with DitoGear™ Evolution allows also for automated captures of panoramic imagery. No more need to carry two devices.
