Las Vegas, NV, CES 2006, Booth 36000, Dec. 21, 2005 —Davis & Sanford Tripods, a division of The Tiffen Company, recently introduced new additions to its prosumer tripods and accessories, the Carbon LiteX10 and three new ball heads.
The Carbon LiteX10 features ultra light carbon fibre and magnesium construction for indoor and outdoor use, rubber/retractable spiked feet, easy glide centerpost and easy-grip foam-cushioned insulated legs. List price is $299.98. The CarbonLiteX10 has a titanium finish and 3 section adjustable snap lock legs. This tripod comes with a bonus tripod bag. Maximum height is 62 inches. The independent adjustable legs make a 21-inch minimum operating height possible. The weight of this tripod and head is only 5.2 pounds because carbon fibre is 30% lighter than aluminum, yet rugged and sturdy. The head has 3-way fluid pan action and built-in Stroboframe® quick release system with auto closure. Many Stroboframe® flash brackets can lock directly into this new tripod quick release. The new FGX10 head is also SwitchGrip® compatible, which is Davis & Sanford's new-patented mini tripod concealed in a handle.
The SwitchGrip® system adds versatility to your tripod. The mini-tripod disconnects from the inside of the tripod handle to be used as a tabletop tripod. SwitchGrip® gives the tripod user the choice of shooting with a ball head or a 3 way pan head. This new system gives the user the option of shooting with multiple cameras or camera and flash bracket or other equipment from one tripod. The SwitchGrip also can be used as a copy stand when attached to a standard tripod.
Davis & Sanford has been providing a variety of tripods and support for over 60 years. Powder-coated and anodized finishes to help resist abrasion under the heaviest use, combined with aircraft-quality aluminum and high-tech synthetics create the best durability and portability. The Davis & Sanford line also includes tripod heads, platforms, dollies, and many other accessories to meet a wide variety of photo and video applications.
The Carbon LiteX10 tripod carries the Davis & Sanford 10-year warranty and is available through the Tiffen worldwide dealer network. For more information, contact The Tiffen Company at 90 Oser Avenue, Hauppauge, NY 11788, 631-273-2500, Fax: 631-273-2557, or Internet: http://www.tiffen.com/.
