Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, imaging equipment and accessories industry, presents a new offering featuring high-performance monopods for professional videographers and photographers: the new XPRO Monopod+ family.
When volume and weight need to be minimal, set-up speed is of primary importance, in crowded places where there’s no room for a tripod, or for creative, overhead footage – whenever a tripod is not the option, monopods are the solution. They enable users to quickly and easily move from one shooting point to another, providing stable support to video and photo equipment, ensuring incredibly smooth footage, ultra-sharp photos and creative shooting perspectives.
• Introducing the new FLUIDTECH - Full Fluid Base: first of its kind 3D-movement for the smoothest video footage • Easy, instant locking and adjustment with the Quick Power Lock system • Superior stability and portability thanks to powerful lightweight aluminium & carbon fibre • Flexibility to switch from photo to video thanks to the accessory base
This exciting new generation brings image makers the ground-breaking FLUIDTECH – Full Fluid Base, making Manfrotto XPRO Monopod+ the first of its kind on the market featuring fluidity on all 3 axes to deliver ultimate smoothness in an extremely compact solution for advanced video shooting.
The Full Fluid Base is available as a kit with all the new XPRO video Monopod+, but also available as an accessory to convert the new XPRO Photo Monopod+ to video monopods.
The new XPRO Video Monopod+ range comprises six high-performance models featuring an exciting market-first: 3D fluid movement – on pan, tilt and swivel – for compellingly smooth video footage, powered by Manfrotto’s new Full Fluid Base, a pioneering technological innovation based on a spherical system located inside the base. The new range includes extremely agile travel solutions for shooting video (the ultra-compact alu and carbon versions) that effortlessly slip into a backpack.
The video monopod family also includes different camera connections, i.e. simple plate with 1/4”-3/8” thread, sliding plate system, 2-way fluid head and video head.
The new XPRO Monopod+ photo range is specially designed for performance in fields such as sports photography, birdwatching, travel and nature photography. It comes in five versions, including a high payload version to support the heaviest equipment and long lenses (up to 10kg/22lbs). With the Full Fluid Base accessory, the photo monopods can also be used for shooting smooth videos.
All the new XPRO Monopod+ Photo and Video legs feature the Quick Power Lock system: extreme locking grip released with the movement of a single hand for rapid, easy set up that enables image makers to move quickly and confidently. The new rubber leg warmer dramatically increases comfort and grip.
Leveraging the success of the existing XPRO Monopod collection, all the models are 100% Made in Italy, superbly designed and crafted and reliable in the most demanding situations – from weddings, corporate videos, interviews and documentaries to sports events.
The XPRO Monopod+ range will be available from £59.95. For more information, please visit www.manfrotto.co.uk
