GIBRALTAR CAM HEAD FROM QUICK-SET IS IMPROVED VERSION OF THE FAMOUS HOUSTON FEARLESS HFCH

One of the first things Quick-Set, Inc. did after acquiring Houston Fearless was to redesign the company's well-known HFCH cam head. Now QuickSet's all-new version has been introduced as the Gibraltar Cam Head (Cat. No. 4-62302-1). Though smaller in size and lighter in weight than the trusted HFCH, it still accommodates camera loads up to 375 pounds!

A precision-engineered roller bearing system provides smooth, flawless, 360° panning. Camera tilt is an effortless ±50°. Interchangeable dual cams (in size range from 3 inches to 10 inches) match the head to most cameras' specific center of gravity, to perfectly counterbalance the load.

A movable wedge plate adapter - now an integral part of the balance system - achieves forward and aft camera balance. The adapter is included at no additional charge.

Optional accessories include a second telescoping control arm and a wedge plate.

A catalog sheet is available, on request, from Quick-Set, Inc., 3650 Woodhead Drive, Northbrook, Illinois 60062.

"The Beaulieu 5008S Multispeed Single-System Sound Super-8 Camera and the Topcon Super DM 35mm SLR Camera will soon be placed on PERMANENT Exhibit in the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House (Rochester, New York)," announced Morton G. Schoncite, Vice President of Hervic Corporation (exclusive U.S. distributor of both product lines).

"We are indeed thrilled to have such an honor granted to not one, but TWO of our products," Mr. Schoncite further stated.

"Each camera was chosen for permanent exhibit at the George Eastman House because of the unique, state-of-the-art design and feature contributions each camera has made within its respective film format.

"Beaulieu brought to Super-8 (right from the beginning) the 'professional touch' with such innovations as Mirror Reflex Viewing, the widest range of filming speeds. Lens Interchangeability, and unmatched optics for Super-8.

"Topcon is a true 'pioneering' brand name in 35mm SLR, responsible for the Auto Wind Concept, Behind-the-Lens Metering and the world's fastest optics (Topcon's 300mm, 2.8 lens)."
