ROME— CARTONI, the world’s premier
manufacturer of professional and prosumer   camera
support gear, will debut a number of new products and product upgrades at IBC 2014
in Amsterdam, including SMART PRO, a low-cost fluid head for camera payloads
from 0-6 kg (0 to 13 lbs). CARTONI can be found at HALL 11 – Stand 11.E30.
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. In response to international
demand, Cartoni has reduced the price for the professional entry level product,
giving it a competitive edge over other heads in its class.
SMART PRO is 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.

Another worldwide best-seller, FOCUS HD, for cameras from 0 to 12 kg (0 – 26 lbs.), 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 also packaged with a new, state-of-the-art carbon-fiber tripods
offering extreme compactness, lightweight and exceptional stability.

The latest addition to CARTONI’s tripod line-up, STABILO, will be shown for the first
time in Europe at IBC. Extremely compact and lightweight 3 kg ( 6.6 Lbs.) the
3-stage, carbon fiber tripod folds to a short 63.5 cm (25 inches), making it
perfect as a carryon or for backpack use. Its sticks extend to an amazing
maximum height of 182.5 cm (72 inches) with a low range of 22.5 cm (8.8 inches).
Stick extension is secured by three rotating easy-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.
STABILO is 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 5 kg ( 11 lbs.).
CARTONI will exhibit its new, patented ENG tripod, SMART STOP. It features a 100 mm bowl
and an innovative 2-stage rapid extension that can be operated by a single
lever. Weighing only 2.9 kg (6.4 lbs.), it is perfect for newsgathering.

kg (55 lbs.). Extremely smooth, reliable and silent, E-REM 25 is ideal for use

revolutionary, patented counterbalance system for a perfect balance at any tilt
angles from 2 kg – 30 kg (4.4 lbs. to 66 lbs.). Compact and lightweight, Master

accessory line, including an extension for Bazooka owners.  The new Bazooka Column will save grips precious time on
sets. The Bazooka extension is a crank-able unit
that mounts to the existing Bazooka column, adding an extra 20 cm (8 in) in
elevation flexibility. The extension features a precision worm-gear to easily
adjust for cameras, sliders, etc.
