What sets this crane apart from others on the market?
- Don't be fooled by imitations! ProAm® virtually created the market for mid-sized cranes. While imitations come and go, ProAm® will be around to honor the crane's LIFETIME warranty.
- The single rail design achieves a light weight crane easily assembled by 1 person. It is complemented and made more stable by a second rail that accomplishes the tilt function.
- High Density scratch resistant powder-coating. Others use only a black spray paint which flakes off easily.
- The combination of price, usable features and excellent build quality make it the best mid-sized crane on the market. The manufacturer warranties the product for life and we guarantee your total satisfaction with our 30 day money back policy!
- The design is completely tool-less at no extra cost!
- With this camera crane, operators can choose to tilt the camera independently while tilting the crane body so there is no need for an expensive motorized panhead, or by using the auto tilt feature, keep the camera fixed at the same angle while tilting the crane body. Most cranes force you to keep the camera level while booming. That won't allow you to keep focused on a subject and can severely limits your shots.
- ProAm® backs this product with a LIFETIME Guarantee, because they know it will last.
- Design protected by US Patent.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can this crane be mounted directly on the tripod head?
Yes, the crane's tripod mount has both 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes for mounting to a tripod head's quick release plate. Just make sure your tripod head can support the overall weight of the crane and keep the tilt lock tightened.
is the dvc 200 only for dslr cameras
No, both the DVC200 and DVC210 can be used with all types of cameras.
- The DVC210 (with center mounted and overslung camera platform) work great with the shorter bodies of DSLR and Mirrorless camera, but with the included extension plate, it can accomodate longer camcorder style bodies. The DVC210 can support slightly more weight than the DVC200.
- The DVC200 (with L shaped side mounting bracket) works with all styles of camera body, but has a lower weight limit of 8 pounds due to the offset camera mounting position.
With the Orion 210 and the added 4 foot extension, how much camera weight can it support, or is it still 10 lbs ?
We advise mounting a load of no more than 8 pounds when using the 4 foot extension with the crane. For 10 pound loads at the extended length, we recommend using the cable support kit.
