FOCUS HD and MASTER MK II will be shown by Manios Digital & Film.

USA,  one of the world’s premier
manufacturers of professional and prosumer camera support gear, will debut a
number of new products and product upgrades at NAB 2014, including SMART PRO, a
low-cost fluid head for camera payloads up to 13 lbs. (6 kg). CARTONI products will be showcased by Cartoni USA, Stand C9539.
Based on CARTONI’s best-selling HiDV Fluid Head, SMART PRO offers a variety of
innovative touches including ergonomic knobs for ease-of-use, better control
and a more fluid touch on drag and counterbalance. It is also equipped with
such professional-grade features as a continuously-variable fluid drag system
and CARTONI’s patented “wing” counterbalance system. The head’s 75 mm diameter
bowl is compatible with all 75 mm tripods as well as most current-generation
slider attachments. Significantly, SMART PRO comes with a reduced price, a breakthrough
for the prosumer market, making it by far the best cost-per-quality value in
its class.

Another worldwide best seller, FOCUS HD, for cameras up to 26 lbs. (12 kg), has been further
improved for 2014. New features include ergonomic knobs for precise
counterbalance and tilt drag control, a complement to the head’s continuously
variable fluid damping system and patented variable counterbalance. FOCUS HD comes
packaged with a new, state-of-the-art carbon-fiber tripod offering extreme
compactness, lightweight and exceptional stability.
The latest addition to CARTONI’s tripod line-up, STABILO, will be shown for the first
time at NAB. Extremely compact and lightweight, the 3-stage, carbon fiber
tripod folds to a short 25 inches (63.5 cm), making it perfect as a carryon or
for backpack use. Its sticks extend to an amazing maximum height of 72 inches
(182.5 cm) with a low range of 8.8 inches (22.5 cm). Stick extension is secured
by three rotating grips that can be set to three different angles, clearly
indicated on each side of the leg attachment and with no need for a spreader to
maintain position.
equipped with a standard 100 mm bowl but can be down-stepped to 75 mm via a
reduction ring. It can be matched with the FOCUS HD to create a perfect
combination for news reporters and wildlife operators, with a total weight of only
11 lbs. (5 kg).
 As a specialty item, CARTONI will exhibit its patented SMART STOP ENG tripod. It features a
100 mm bowl and an innovative 2-stage rapid extension that can be operated by a
single lever. Weighing only 6.4 lbs. (2.9 kg), it is perfect for newsgathering.
CARTONI will also present its new remote control head, E-REM 25, suitable for cameras up to 55
lbs. (25 kg). Extremely smooth, reliable and silent, E-REM 25 is ideal for use
in television studios and can be operated on pedestals, tripods or under-slung
from cranes. Competitively priced, the remote head is equipped with simple
modular electronics and state-of-the-art gear mechanics. A variety of remote
command options are available for E-REM 25 including joystick, hand-wheels and
fluid pan bar (with optional zoom and focus implemented on the console).

 Finally, an upgraded version of the classic MASTER MK II will be on display. Improved
features include a revolutionary, patented counterbalance system for a perfect balance
at any tilt angles from 4.4 lbs. to 66 lbs. (2 kg – 30 kg). Compact and
lightweight, Master MK II is an ideal companion to the latest digital 35 mm full-frame
cameras, stripped or fully equipped with long lenses, follow focus rigs,
monitors, batteries and other accessories. MASTER MK II comes with a flat
Mitchell base that can be converted to a 150 mm bowl via an adapter. It offers
