An interview from the 2015 Cine Gear LA Expo at Paramount Studios with Frank Requena of Chapman/Leonard. Chapman Leonard Studio Equipment, Inc. has provided camera support equipment for the film industry for the past 60+ years. Since its beginning, Chapman / Leonard has always manufactured and rented camera support equipment for motion picture and television use. In this interview Frank talks with us about Cobra VT 22-61 & the Hybrid IV dollies.

The Hybrid IV is a Camera Dolly for 21st century production, capable of carrying large and small camera packages, the design allows you to quickly and easily switch between studio and real world locations and it’s packed with time saving features to make your job easier. At the centre of the new design are brand new wheel and axels (the Hybrid IV can work on several gauges of track in near silence), a more accurate, silent and smooth hydraulic lifting arm (with extra lifting power) and greater maneuverability thanks to three modes of steering. The Hybrid IV is compatible with a wide range of our Track, Jib Arms and Vibration Isolators. The Hybrid IV benefits from a new lifting mode when using the Hydraulic arm. Float Mode is something operators will love for moves where a change in arm height needs a subtle and flowing movement. The Hybrid IV comes with an impressive array of standard accessories including, the new Quick Jack system (see video), risers for the camera head and Hi/Lo plates, a dedicated nose seat, quick-release walk around boards and platforms for use with the Hydraulic arm.
