how do you call it?

i worked recently on a commercial, the grips had a great piece of equipment, i'd like to know how it's called.
basicly it's 2 pipes you can slide up and down to adjust the highth to put the head and a certain distance.
to me it's better than a lambda head or an MK IV beacause you really can adjust it to the right highth.
do you get me?

I am not sure, it could also have been a weaver-steadman, a predecessor to the lambda head.
basically it is a camera stand made from tubing connected with euro/boss style fittings. they are great, with the right operator. The bazooka has a adjustable riser that slides up and down to dial in the exact height. There are several manufacturers, my favorite is Modern. panther makes a nice ones too.
more detail and we could tell you more.

i wish i had a picture it's a pipe with an euro at one end . the pipe fit in a cercle so you can slide it in ti reach the good heigth. this "circle" is linked to another pipe so the 2 pipes make an X on horizontal and one vertical.
maybe it was home made but it looked cinegear and it was in tanger marocco so i believe it wasn't home made.
it was blue and black

no sorry it's a "combi rig"
When it comes from Panther they call it a High-Low-Rig, a very usefull multiporpose tool.
