Manfrotto intros professional grade tripods and remote control units for serious videographers
Here’s some gear that’s definitely targeted at serious videographers and photographers, given the price tag and niche status of the products.
First up at £19.95 (not too bad, you might think) is the Manfrotto 585 LNC Modosteady remote control. Thing is, it’s designed to be mounted on top of a Manfrotto Modosteady, a beast of a contraption that’s designed to steady attached video cameras the “hardware way” (forget those namby-pamby internal image stabilisers).
Should you be itching to get hold of such a device for your Sony or Canon camcorder, you’ll be pleased to know it’ll be available next month…
