Professional photographers, movie producers, and those heavily involved in the entertainment industry know that their creative productions need good lighting. Many times, people focus on cameras and lighting but neglect important support equipment such as tripods and monopods, stands, clamps, arms, brackets and bars. Manfrotto aims to be the leader in providing the arts and entertainment industry with high quality and reliable camera and lighting support equipment.

Professional photographers and videographers, you will love the support equipment you can find at Manfrotto. The carbon fiber extendable tripods are very light, thin but good even for rugged shoots. Check out the Manfrotto Hydrostat Ball Head – the most advanced ball head range in its collection. It’s lightweight but heavy-duty. It has all the features of regular ball heads with an additional feature – a revolutionary friction and locking mechanism allows you to preset the ball tension according to your camera’s weight. By using hydraulic laws, your fingertip can control the locking mechanism so that the camera is securely locked and looking as though it was one with the ball head, with no movement whatsoever while it is in use. The monopods and other supports such as arms, brackets, bars and clamps let you move your camera or videocam easily, safely, smoothly and efficiently.

Why risk your very expensive camera and video equipment on some cheap tripod, monopod or arm brackets that could come crashing down on you when you least expect it? Manfrotto’s tripods, monopods and equipment are all sturdy, made for heavy use, and come in different models suitable for different uses – whether you just want one that adjusts vertically or one that can go to almost ground level so you could shoot from a different perspective.

Manfrotto also carries lighting support, control and suspensions that meet international standards of safety and durability. Hang theater lights from booms or poles or suspend these from the ceiling using a Sky Track System or pantographs (accordion-like arms that can be elongated or collapsed). In addition, they have a line of bags and apparel to choose from, including jackets and vests just right for the pro photographer in you. Manfrotto is really the place to go to for all your photo, video and lighting support equipment.
