The 685B is the latest model to be released into Manfrotto’s Neotec range, the world’s first fully automatic tripod series. Succeeding the 684B, the new 685B has a host of new features. To prevent the locking release being accidentally activated, Manfrotto has included a new safety lever that has to be activated by hand, before the grip handle can be depressed. A fold away rubber foot pedal can be used to raise the height of the monopod, while a foam warmer located on the bottom leg protects against the elements. Additional support is provided by a suction cup foot. Mark Hoskins from Manfrotto comments: “All these new features add up to Manfrotto’s most advanced monopod. They maintain the extremely powerful Neotec locking system to withhold the heaviest of camera systems, making it the ideal tool for the extreme sports photographer to the advanced amateur.” The 685B Neotec pro monopod will available for £110, for more information log onto www.manfrotto.co.uk
