Stinger I Crane


The Stingers are our smallest fixed length crane arms designed to work with Chapman Dollies and Bases. They are ideal for creating intricate moves with a Dolly, achieving low angle shots and are compatible with remote heads and stabilisers for tracking shots. Just like the Lenny Arms the Stingers can be configured to give you different lengths to work with (see features).

Chapman's Stinger arms are great for Pack shots (commercials), small crane movements in confined areas on a set or location or mounted on our tracking vehicles as manually operated arms. They're engineered to the same specification as our larger cranes, smooth, rugged and easy to configure, with safety features such as fluid dampening to remove the risk of a 'backlash' (in the event the crane arm is not balanced).

The Stinger I is supplied mounted on it's own special Dolly the Pee Wee (see photo below) as this saves set-up time on set. The Stinger I features a camera slider which does not affect the dynamic balance of the arm, even in use. All this comes as a standard package, ready to use with any of our Fluid Heads or Remote Heads.
