MovieBird® 50 Technocrane


Despite the similar reach to the MovieBird® 52 it’s a totally different crane. The MovieBird® 50 was designed from the start to handle very heavy head packages (maximum nose load is 80 kg). It’s much stiffer than the MovieBird® 52 and MovieBird® 45. Despite it’s reach of 50ft it’s still a very compact crane when retracted, easy to transport and move around on the film set. Short back end of only 2,6 m makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces and allows high tilt angle of up to 53 degrees. There’s also a pair of telescopic rails that extend the back end for additional 1m for more leverage and easier arm control.
