NORTH HOLLYWOOD—Responding to the need for a rugged and reliable fluid head to support today’s wide variety of ENG cameras, Cartoni will introduce TRACKER at NAB 2015. Capable of supporting cameras from 3 kg (4.4 lbs.) to 20 kg (44 lbs.), TRACKER is an ideal fluid head for newsgathering and other outdoor shoots.
TRACKER offers a sleek, compact design, yet is accessorized with a variety of top end features. They include Cartoni’s patented “wing” continuously adjustable counterbalance system, which delivers perfect performance throughout the +/- 90 tilt range, as well as the company’s patented labyrinth system for smooth, precise pan and tilt movement.
Ergonomically designed knobs and levers make the head easy to use. Although weighing just 4 kg (8.8 lbs.), the head is extremely durable due to its use of lightweight “ultrastrong” magnesium alloys. TRACKER is also backed by Cartoni’s unsurpassed 5-year warranty.
“TRACKER belongs in every ENG cameraman’s kit,” says Elisabetta Cartoni, President and CEO, Cartoni. “It provides perfect balance and complete freedom of movement no matter what camera you are shooting with or where you are shooting.”
Celebrating 80 years as a world leader in camera support, Cartoni designs, engineers, manufactures and assembles its full range of products in Europe from its Rome plant, established in 1935. The company will be showing TRACKER alongside its complete line-up of fluid heads, tripods, pedestals and camera accessories at NAB 2015, Booth C9039. As part of its anniversary celebration Cartoni will be conducting a free drawing, whose prizes include 80th Anniversary Edition SMART Pro Fluid Head & Tripod systems.
