Manfrotto intros professional grade tripods and remote control units for serious videographers - Tech Digest
Here's some gear that's definitely targeted at serious videographers and photographers, given the price tag and niche status of the products. First up at £19.95 (not too bad, you might think) is the Manfrotto 585 LNC Modosteady remote control. Thing is, it's designed to be mounted on top of a Manfrotto Modosteady, a beast of a contraption that's designed to steady attached video cameras the "hardware way" (forget those namby-pamby internal image stabilisers). Should you be itching to get hold of such a device for your Sony or Canon camcorder, you'll be pleased to know it'll be available next month...
