The Tiffen Company Announces Availability of New Steadicam Bundle, Tripod and Head
The Tiffen Company announced the availability of a special Steadicam bundle configuration, the Steadicam Merlin Arm & Vest. The new Steadicam Merlin Arm & Vest kit includes the Steadicam Merlin 2 camera stabilizing systems as well as the Merlin’s Arm Pin Kit and Vest, sold as one complete package. The new configuration offers a special discount over purchasing systems and components individually.
Together, the Merlin Arm and Vest increase shooting options. The operator can ease the Merlin back against the body and shoot “handheld,” with both hands on the camera, and fly seamlessly back off the shoulder and continue moving. With practice, operators can fly the Merlin one-handed right off the mounting post during a shot (docking the arm to the vest with the other hand) and execute unique Merlin shot opportunities – ultra-low or ultra-high angles – and then slip it back onto the arm to continue the shot.
The company also announced that the new Davis & Sanford Pro Elite Tripod and Head models 5075-15 and 5100-25 are now shipping.
The new Davis & Sanford Pro Elite Series two-in-one spreader feature includes snap-in center support brace with boots for uneven ground plus adjustable ground spreader for maximum rigidity and a true fluid head design, providing shooters a system that performs on both flat and uneven surfaces. The ergonomically designed lever offers shooters smooth pan, scan, and tilt with counter balance control capabilities that support a wide range of camera weights. The variable quick release lets users easily fine-tune the camera balance.
The new Davis & Sanford Pro Elite tripods are offered through the Tiffen Dealer Network at a price point of 699.99USD for the PE 5075-15 model and 1099.99USD for the PE 5100-25 model.
