The Rhino Arc II is a new take on the usual “slider-with-a-pan-and-tilt-head” style solution. First of all everything is highly modular.  It’s 4 axis (focus being one “axis”), with the main parts of the Rhino Arc II system being a motorized pan and tilt head, a focus motor, a slider motor and the sliders themselves. The interesting part is that the head is designed so that it can be used separately, say on a tripod, either as an automated head, or just as a motorized yet hand-controlled head using two ergonomically placed joysticks to control the pan and tilt, as well as focus and slide. The system also comes with an app, to help control the head, plan movements and add new features (like the Light Lapse feature). The head has a load capacity of 15 lbs / 6.8 kg, features a high capacity battery with a DC out to power your camera and a built-in Manfrotto 501 plate receiver. This capacity will give you enough leeway to use most smaller cinema cameras, even rigged. The battery has a capacity of 60Wh, will power your timelapses for up to 48h and can be charged in around two hours.

The next part of the system is the Rhino Focus, a .8 gear pitch compatible focus motor, that comes with an integrated 15mm rod by which it can be attached to the Rhino Arc II motorized head and the motor tasked with sliding the motorized head along the compatible sliders. The motor is capable of moving 25 lbs /11.3 kg horizontally, 10 lbs / 4.5 kg vertically. There are two slider motors, slider motor one High Torque lower speed & one High Speed lower torque.

Use Arc II on a tripod for B-Roll and V-Logging to quickly get rack focus shots, pan/tilt moves and precise close-ups. Leave your fluid head at home and replace it with Arc II. Use Automatic Face Tracking to step up your Vlog shots when you’re filming alone.

Add dynamic motion to your stagnant interview shots. Easily setup a looping move that automatically tracks your subject if they re-position. The new Rhino Slider is 3x more rigid and mounts to tripods in seconds.

Capture incredible time-lapses with Arc II. Use the High Torque Motor for vertical or incline shots and LightLapse (iOS app) for day to night “Holy Grail” sequences.
