SDS Smart Deployment Series


Cartoni introduces the new SDS Smart Deployment Series

The SDS system expands on Cartoni’s famous SMART STOP two-stage/single lever tripod technology with the addition of the new SMART LOCK mid-level spreader. It features a patented “no-bind” mechanism for quick spread and collapse. The result is the most intelligent, fastest deployed tripod in the industry.

Easily identifiable by their characteristic red-rod trigger mechanism and ergonomic carry handle, the SDS 100mm and75mm tripods are available in aluminum and carbon fiber.

SDS tripods can be paired with Cartoni’s FOCUS line of fluid heads to form an ideal system for broadcast ENG, documentaries, film and other types of content creation requiring quick set-up and teardown.
