Matthews Studio Equipment is proud to announce the introduction of the Elevator. The Matthews Elevator system is a counterbalanced elevation tower designed to give operators 25.5” of smooth vertical movement, as well as a complete 360 degrees of rotation. The Elevator was specifically designed to work with a variety of camera platforms including heavy-duty sliders like the Matthews Slider, Doorway Dollies, The Dutti Dolly, tripods, pipe dollies, high hats, bazookas, or any other platform or adapter that uses an elemac mounting base.

The system gives budget conscious film makers and smaller productions the ability to create compelling vertical camera moves without having to rely on conventional dollies or cranes. The 25.5” of travel will cover the range between sitting and standing positions.

The Elevator features a simple 1:1 counterweight (Olympic size barbells), infinite 360 degree panning, multiple 3/8-16 threaded holes for mounting accessories and or triangulating. Its rugged design will support any camera/ fluid head combo up to 23kgs or 50.5 pounds.

And just like the Matthews Slider, it is a dry running system. No grease on the rails or wheels... Just wipe it down with a damp cloth regularly. Another unique new tool from Matthews where “Technology Complements your Imagination.”

Tools required are 8 and 10mm open wrench (supplied) and one set each of Metric and SAE Allen keys, a level might prove handy also.
