9.Solutions showed us their very interesting C-Pan Arm, a jib-like arm that can be flipped and turned for curved slider shots or even curved vertical movement.
The C-Pan allows the camera plate to move in a straight line. With a travel of 5 feet and a payload of 17lbs, this can be used to replace most conventional sliders, but by simply adjusting the radius knob on the joint, the camera plate will remain pointed at a subject, mimicking a curved slider. Interestingly enough, this rig can be arranged to be vertical at any angle in-between, allowing users to even move the camera along a curved diagonal line around their subject.
The video showcases a prototype, but the core mechanics are the same. The C-Pan Arm will be available by June at $2200.

Looks like a very versatile solution.

Honestly one of the best things to come out of NAB this year. That and the peace of mind that the camera world seems to be plateauing for a little bit.

Now that's a great piece of kit. I know some will think it bulky but it's 2 or maybe even 3 bits of kit in one. As a narrative film maker I could see this being set up and used daily. Even as a one or two man crew this is do-able. Audio going in wirelessly to your mirrorless camera. Completly replaces the tripod as it can be locked off for static shots. Has a relitivly small footprint, I WANT ONE!
