Bolt X On Track

The biggest and fastest high-speed camera robot just got even faster

For increased range and breath-taking camera speeds, Bolt X has been given a track axis to take high-speed cinematography to the next level.

With a 3.1m arm reach, Bolt X gives a much larger operating envelope, giving operators greater freedom for creativity. Extremely useful for shooting live-action subjects, the Bolt X is perfect for music videos, commercials, film & TV.

Rig Fixing (per rail)

While the Bolt can be used with counter weights for some shots, if you are looking to achieve the highest speeds with the smoothest possible results the optimum mounting for the rig is to fix it to the floor. This is the suggested method of use. Mr Moco bring to set the equipment necessary to fix to sound concrete floors. It only requires x4 20mm holes drilled to a depth of 65mm, these are filled with M16 plugs that the rig can be screwed into per rail.
