Manfrotto support

Four lightweight tripods and two monopods are the latest additions to Manfrotto’s digital line-up. With weights ranging from 0.58 – 5kg, the MagFiber range is 30% lighter than conventional aluminium castings, thanks to carbon fibre legs, an aluminium and nylon polymer centre column and magnesium die cast parts. Prices start at £110 and each item in the range includes a carrying strap that can be used to hang weights from. Manfrotto is also set to release the ball and socket Hydrostat range aimed at professional photographers. Available in varying weights of 0.65 to 0.84kg and heights of 12-13cm, the range can hold a maximum camera (and lens) weight of 16kg. Cameras are kept secure using a mechanism concealed by a lock knob. The ball tension can also be adjusted depending on the camera weight. Prices start at £200.
