Product description

The Bescor MP-1B includes the MP-101 Motorized Pan/Tilt Head with 90-645 Battery and BC-665R Charger. The MP-101 head can be mounted on a tripod or any mounting system with a 1/4"-20 screw, and provides smooth motorized pan and tilt features for cameras weighing up to 6 lb. The MP-101 has a pan range of 340° and a tilt range of 30°. This compact and lightweight motorized head is useful for mounting and controlling the pan and tilt of a camera where automatic or remote operation is preferred.

The MP-101 can be powered by the included Bescor 90-645 battery, and can also be powered by either the separately available Bescor PS-260 power supply or four AA batteries.

MP-101 Motorized Pan Tilt Head

    Range of Motion
  • The MP-101 has two motors, one each for the pan and tilt functions. The motors operate independently of each other and can be controlled by the included MP-REMOTE.

    Tilt Range: -15 to 15° and set to position using the included MP-REMOTE.
    Note: The tilt axis has no automatic movement functionality.Pan Range: 0 to 340°, with the following settings:
    • Auto mode: 0 to 340°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
    • 90° mode: 0 to 90°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
    • 45° mode: 0 to 45°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
    • 0° mode: Unit pans to 340°, then returns to 0° and parks
    Note: For Auto, 90°, and 45° modes, the MP-101 starts by panning to zero before starting its cycle.

    Subject: 360 pan only
    Date: 28.11.2022 14:03:23Name: Rick Goode
    I cannot get the bescor to auto reset from 0 to 45 - or 0-90
    It just keeps rotating 360 degree (full circle).

    I want to use it for a Stormtrooper head on a full size Storm Trooper mannequin.
    I want his head to turn from left to right. Like a guard scanning for security.
    What can I do to fix this?
