The Hague UPH Underslung Pan & Tilt Power Head can be mounted to a tripod, jib, crane or wall bracket. It can be mounted either vertically or underslung and it supports up to 2.5kg making it ideal for handheld camcorders and DSLR cameras.
The head will pan and tilt through 360 degrees, this enables the camera to point directly upwards or downwards when required. The Power Head is fastened from above to an overhead beam, pole or jib and has 3 mounting holes, one of which is a standard ¼" 20 thread which would allow it to be mounted vertically on top of a tripod.
The Underslung Powerhead is ideal for use with the Hague Camcrane K18, Multi Jib K12, & Junior Jib K2. It can also be wall mounted with the Hague Powerhead Wall Bracket or used on top of a tripod. The unit is battery operated with a wired remote control for both pan & tilt and it has a variable speed control.
This unit can also be used with the Camranger and PT Hub combination.

Just updated our one from over 15 years ago, as needed to hold a bigger camera for a production of Macbeth at school, where we provided the live 'reality TV' feed to a screen above the actors. 3 Year 10's operated this rig over 4 nights on the end of a jib Hague don't make any more. Although the panning is jerky on top speed -ie it starts powerfully and jerks across, this was counter acted by following actors using jib rotation. So top speed good for lining up your shot. Slower speeds won't keep up with fast action. The controller is basic, and a toggle one would be better with a variable push=speed on it. The equipment is solid and 4batteries lasted through 5 performances, being on for over 18 hours including a class session I took with it. We found our jib had a slight lean to it so we compensated with the tripod to get level shots. The whole rig at times was over the audience heads at times (about 2ft), but we were confident in it's strength and abilities in testing. Good basic unit that we can use inverted as a remote in difficult place settings just on a tripod, so the money now buys two different approaches - very useful.
