its history of innovation, CARTONI’s new heads were developed to accommodate
today’s most popular camera systems, both large and small, and provide maximum
flexibility in the use of lenses and other accessories. “We’re very excited
about technical advancements we were able to achieve in our new tripod and heads,”
said CARTONI President and CEO Elisabetta
. “They were designed with direct feedback from operators worldwide and
include a number of patented features that continue our legacy of advancing the
art and science of image capture.”

New products include:

MASTER 65 is a heavy-duty head for broadcast
cameras with larger zoom or box-type lenses. It features CARTONI’s patented
MAGNUM counterbalance system and unique silicon fluid drag system, offering perfect
balance, and the preference of heavier drag with smooth starts and stops and no
backlash. The new drag system is essential for tight shots on long, zoomed
lenses that are subject to subtle camera movements. At a payload capacity of 20
kg (44 lbs) to 70 kg (150 lbs), it’s the largest fluid head in the
MASTER series.
MASTER 30 features the patented CARTONI, “wing” counterbalance system that
provides perfect balance throughout the full +/- 90 ° tilt range with no dead
spots. Offered in a flat base, it can easily be converted to a 150mm bowl base with optional
adapter. Its rugged construction can handle
payloads up to 30 kg (66 lbs).

SDS (Smart Deployment Series) Tripod expands and improves upon CARTONI’s popular Smart Stop two-stage,
single-lever trigger technology with a new Smart Lock mid-level spreader. It features a
patented “no-bind” mechanism for fast spreading and collapsing. Combined, they
form the most intelligent and fastest deployed 100mm & 75mm tripod in the
MAXIMA 30 is designed for Digital cinema camera packages. It comes with a patented counterbalance and fluid drag system, and a wide payload range of 3 kg (6.6 lbs) to 30 kg (66 lbs). Pan
and tilt brake controls are placed conveniently on the left (where operator
muscle memory expects them) along with 4-rosette
attachments for pan bars. The camera plate
stage accepts all industry standard plates (ARRI, RED, etc.), and the safety
lock and release latch can be activated with one hand to either disengage or remove
the camera plate.
LAMBDA 25 3rd
is the latest accessory for CARTONI’s
popular LAMBDA 25 head, featuring an innovative design allowing operators to
perform complete 360° rotation on a third axis. Offering a nodal setting on three axes, it is
ideal for shooting underslung off a jib arm, dolly shots, or on a slider.
 CARTONI has a long and rich history of developing innovative camera
support systems. Its legacy of high quality Italian design and manufacturing
has resulted in numerous patents and awards, and helped shape the modern
broadcast and cinematography industries.
