The Akela Crane is the first generation of one of the largest camera cranes. The Akela can move from an extreme closeup to seven stories high and follow a subject in one smooth flow for nearly 200 feet without track or cable. The Akela breaks down into highly portable elements to allow it to be setup in almost any location.
