So much of production takes place in the sports world that it’s no wonder Cartoni would make a tripod specifically for sports shooters. We spoke with David Butler of Manios Digital & Film, Cartoni’s US distributor, about the Sport 200 HDT Tripod and it’s many uses out in the field.
The totally new SPORT 200 Heavy Duty Tripod is a new entry in the Cartoni tripod family, the ideal for videographers shooting sports in all possible large camera/lens configuration. The SPORT 200 offers an outstanding torsional rigidity and its innovative and new design aluminum profile angled and shaped to ensure maximum strength, holding up to 200 Kg (441 lbs) load while weighing only 10,5 kg (23 lbs).
A special attention has been devoted to materials of this HDT, enduring harsh weather conditions, rain, dust, moisture and extreme temperatures. The center brace drives a telescopic mid-level spreader for a truss structure stable in any environment. Set up is fast and comfortable, each leg has an engraved second stage, positive rotary locking knobs and safety pins while the bubble level is located on the side of the platform. The upper stage accepts classic Mitchell flat base heads and the 4 standard Vinten bolts. The feet incorporate a stainless steel spike for soft terrains and a pivoting rubber pad for flat surfaces. The SPORT 200 HDT tripod is compatible with the CARTONI HD Dolly and HD floor spreader.
