First Impressions:

Cinematographers and camera operators had a sneak peek of aktiv; this is what they had to say.

“I really love to shoot from low angles, this head it really good, because you can pull it off the tripod and put it on the slider in two seconds"
Uroš Podlogar

“We like to work a lot during golden hour so we have a limited window to catch the best light, so we need to have gear that is fast, aktiv is perfect for this.”
Moritz Sieber

“The range that it enables you to be able to get is just incredible, and that - as a camera operator - means I have no concerns about having time to get that shot – I know with this system I definitely can because it’s so quick and it’s so easy.“
Stuart Howells
