At the 2016 NAB Show (Booth C9039), Manios Digital & Film and CARTONI is introducing FOCUS, a new range of fluid heads. The four new dynamic heads, FOCUS 8, FOCUS 12, FOCUS 18 and FOCUS 22, are designed for today’s most popular cameras and can accommodate packages from 0 – 22kg (0 - 48.50lbs). Each includes CARTONI’s patented counterbalance system for superb performance and each comes with the company’s unsurpassed 5-year warranty.
“Camera operators will be inspired by the smooth fluid feel of our new FOCUS range," said CARTONI's CEO Elisabetta Cartoni. “The fluid sensation is one that can only be delivered by a perfect counterbalance system. The heads are ultra-light, yet, through their simple ergonomic settings, provide perfect performance every time.”
Manios Digital & Film is also be showing the latest addition to CARTONI’s Lambda Series of nodal swing heads. Designed for a new generation of smaller and lighter cameras, the new Lambda 25 and Lambda 10 models will be on display, along with the classic Lambda 50.
