MANFROTTO PRESENTS: X PRO GEARED HEAD
Portability. Framing precision. Convenience.
March 4th 2015 - Manfrotto, world leader in the photography and imaging equipment and accessories industry, announces the availability of the new XPRO Geared Head.
The XPRO Manfrotto head is designed for passionate photographers, who need support when taking macro pictures or architecture shoots.
Specifically designed for outdoor use, the XPRO head can be characterised by three main features.
The XPRO head is perfect for photographers looking for a portable support that offers extreme precision in framing control. Weighing only 750g, the XPRO can support up to 4kg of payload. The Adapto body constructed from a strong and rigid technopolymer makes this head the most precise lightweight head that Manfrotto has ever created.
Photographers can set their cameras into the desired position thanks to the heads micrometric knobs. The geared movement allows you to precisely frame the picture one micro step at a time on all three axes. The knobs ensure ergonomic comfort even during extensive usage. In addition, in order to make large framing adjustmnets, the locking system can simply be loosened by pushing the knob against the levers.
Featuring the most common photographic plate in the world – the 200PL – means there is no need to use different plates when switching among various Manfrotto heads. This strikes the perfect balance between quick setup and cost savings: one plate is always attached to the camera, ready to be used in any situation with whatever photo or video support the photographer has in mind.
The XPRO Geared Head is available now at SRP £169.95.
