Mo-Sys L40 Mini


This precise, robust and light weight 2-axis head for high-end digital cinematography is ideal for medium sized camera packages. At the core of the L40 is our highly robust and precise motor drive with zero backlash, providing lag-free operation.


The precise gear drive enables flawless operation even with the biggest zoom lenses, unlike worm gear drives which can cause judder.

The L40 sets a new standard with the digital back-pan gyro option, making it a preferred choice for telescopic and standard crane work. It allows the operator to concentrate on the framing while the head takes care of the compensation of the crane movement.

The L40 boasts a payload of incredible 88lbs while only weighing 35lbs. It is one of the lightest heads on the market with that strength.

The head features a quick release camera plate to enable fast camera installation. All head frame size adjustments are by quick release levers for quickness and ease of balancing and nodal point positioning.

The L40 can be operated with a variety of input devices such as hand-wheels, pan-bar or joystick. The Button-Console interface provides controls for pan/tilt velocity adjustment, input smoothing and direction, user defined position limits with feathering and axes zeroing.

With built in high-resolution encoders the L40 is ready for a full VFX workflow, outputting accurate pan and tilt data and also connects to Mo-Sys VR modules to track cranes, dollies and cameras.
