The "Original"


CamMate is Celebrating over 25 Years of Offering Top Quality Products, with the "Original" Octagon Arm and the First T-Bolt Locking Design 

Since 1987, CamMate Systems has been delivering the highest quality cranes for the film and video industry. Producers, Directors, and Directors of Photography all over the world have discovered the quality and versatility that our equipment has to offer.  

CamMate has been involved with the jib/crane industry for over 25 years.  We manufacture all of our cranes in our 10,000 square foot facility in Chandler, Arizona.

Many of the "new" companies produce their jibs in a garage, and there is no quality control.  You might be able to find a cheaper crane, but keep in mind that the quality, customer service and the longevity in the industry will not come close to a CamMate Crane.

Our factory trained electronics team will repair and upgrade most Cammate camera cranes and return promptly,  usually in the same week. Call us for tune up specials. We can go through your electronics and L Head and make the older products operate like new. Owner/operators-ask about our heavy duty connectors which are great for those of you that setup and tear down week after week. These connectors are beefy and don’t pull apart under constant setups.

When you choose a CamMate System, you will get a finely crafted product, made with top of the line materials such as aircraft aluminum, and superior customer service.   We don't outsource to China and we manufacture our products in the United States. 

Thank you for visiting the Cammate display booth at NAB in Las Vegas. We are pleased on the number of visitors and interest on our camera crane product. There was a lot of interest in our telescopic crane and the pricing of this crane was well received.


For those of you that were unable to attend, we announced our new Dual Output HD-SDI head, as well as our all new U Head. Additionally we are now including our HD-SDI through copper (single channel), slip ring on all cranes.


Please contact us for additional information.

Pan and Tilt Motor Gears

Optional gear sizes are available for the pan and tilt motors.  A 42 tooth gear is the standard size for both pan and tilt motors.  48 and 26 tooth options are available.   The 26 tooth gear is great for slow table top moves.

Please contact us at (480) 813-9500  for all your CamMate needs, maintenance or repairs. 

We service what we sell.
