Rollei has launched a new range of three tripods and monopods for professional photographers.
The iFootage range, which includes the Wild Cat Stabilizer, the Mini Crane M1 and the Mogopod 1, hopes to solve common problems for the professional photographer or budding enthusiast.
The Wild Cat Stabiliser helps to stabilize any video shot, the camera is guided using a non-slip carbon fibre handle that rotates smoothly in all directions. As a result, the DSLR quite simply remains horizontal – whatever the movement. This is because even jerky movements are not transferred to the camera. The handle can be extended with matching accessories. The rubber foam makes it softer and more flexible – it also provides noise insulation and thermal insulation.
The Rollei Mini Crane M1 is compact, light and easy to set up. The Rollei Mini Crane M1 has a large working radius, can be adjusted quickly and has multiple practical functions. The side panels have eight ¼-20 drill holes to which video lights, supporting booms, monitors or other accessories can be attached. The screw connection has a 4 inch extension and two 3/8 inch extensions to connect all tripods and ball heads.
The Rollei Mogopod 1 is a multifunctional accessory for cameras and video cameras, designed for photography hobbyists and professionals. It is both multi functional and easily transportable. Possessing a unique rotation system for rapid height adjustment, it can be used as monopod, flash holder or microphone stand. Thanks to its smooth retraction and extension, it can also be used as camera boom. The special ball head prevents unintended horizontal rotation.
Pricing is yet to be announced. For more information, take a look at the Rollei website.
