The Camera Quad Bike is a specially modified design with a purpose built, aluminium exo-frame, for mounting a wide range of camera configurations (see photos). The 750cc engine provides more than enough torque and power for coping with heavy loads on road and off. The centrally mounted engine provides an even weight distribution and a naturally low centre of gravity. Drive is selectable at the flick of a switch between two or four wheel drive for on road or off-road applications. All four wheels have double wishbone suspension for stability, traversing inclines and negotiating steep slopes over rough and loose ground (see features).
Fitting perfectly in between the Chapman Dune Buggy and the Chapman KTM Tracking Bike is the all-terrain, four wheel drive, Chapman Camera Quad Bike.
For tracking shots where larger vehicles can't go due to their size, or for maneuvering in very small & confined areas, Chapman UK developed a camera tracking vehicle that has the stability and off road capability of our Dune Buggy, with the maneuverability and small footprint of our two-wheel, KTM Tracking Bike.
The result is a mobile camera tracking vehicle that's perfect for hard to reach exterior locations such as forests, beaches, steep & uneven paths or wet & muddy terrain (see photos).
The Quad Bike can carry a seated and secured (all seats have a safety harness) Steadicam operator on the front or the back (see photos). Seats can be configured facing forwards or backwards on either end of the Quad Bike. Compatible with all our Stabilised Remote Heads, Vibration Isolators, Fluid Heads and Sliders.
As you should expect with all our specialised camera tracking vehicles, the Chapman Camera Quad Bike is packed with features that ensure it's ready for professional applications, the innovative design incorporates:
