Cartoni Focus 8 Red Lock System
Availability: In stock
The Cartoni Focus 8 Red Lock System is the ideal support for the latest broadcast and digital cine style cameras weighing up to 17.5 pounds for camera operators who are on the go and is combined with the new Cartoni Red Lock Tripod and the SDS Smart Lock Mid-Level Spreader
The 75mm ball base Focus 8 incorporates the same quick release plate system as on the Sachtler Ace and Manfrotto video heads, while featuring an illuminated sprit level and easily identifiable red locking levers on pan & tilt and comes with a 5-year warranty. The Focus 8 carries on the popular Cartoni Focus family tradition featuring a continuously variable fluid dampening system in both pan and tilt movements and an unprecedented patented variable counterbalance which is in tune with the requirements of today’s shooters.
The sleek Red Lock Tripod features ergonomically designed distinguishable red locks levers and the patented SDS Mid-Level Smart Lock Spreader. The Smart Lock Spreader that was previously only available on our SDS Tripod Series extends by pressing a button to unlock the arms and collapses just by squeezing the legs closed. This spreader features a bind free ratcheting mechanism and folds neatly within the legs of the tripod. Due to its duel extendable sections, the spreader allows for the tripod legs to spread extremely wide while remaining stable, allowing for lower shots than would be possible with a traditional mid-level spreader and collapsing in a moment without binding of the legs. The Red Lock Tripod also includes a 100mm to 75mm adapter ring.
Cartoni products designed, manufactured, and assembled at the Cartoni factory in Rome, Italy. The Focus 8 Fluid Head comes with the peace of mind of a five-year warranty, and all the other items retain their standard one-year warranty.
