MovieBird® 60 Technocrane


The MB 60 is the largest of our telescopic cranes. Despite the MB 60’s reach it is delivered in the same size trailer as a 35ft bird.

This 60 foot telescopic camera crane comes standard with 2 axis remote head, operator’s cart with HD monitor and Preston FIZ.



High end digital electronics that enables the operator to program the actual range of movement. Nine digitally controlled speed settings with additional smooth logarithmic movement fades. Leveling system controlled by digital laser encoders ensures that the remote head is at the true horizontal position regardless of the speed or complexity of the movement.

A highly specialized rail system ensures totally smooth telescopic movements.
