Just look at this little lot…
The MK055XPRO-BHQ2 kit comprises a 055 threesection aluminium tripod and magnesium XPRO Ball Head with 200PL plate. The tripod features 50 per cent more rigidity than previous models, and the Quick Power Lock system ensures your equipment is fully stabilised under all conditions, while the centre column can be extended vertically or horizontally. The ball head has a triple locking system to guarantee camera position stability, plus friction control and two levelling bubbles.
02 Lastolite TriGrip
Utilising a triangular design, which provides a stronger and more stable structure than a circle, the Lastolite TriGrip reflector features a moulded handle with securing strap to allow accurate positioning with one hand. This means that light can be reflected into awkward spots without the need for a stand or a second pair of hands.
XPRO Geared Head The XPRO 3 Way Geared Head has been designed for indoor and outdoor use, with an Adapto body making it the lightest and most precise tripod head that Manfrotto has ever created. The geared movement enables you to frame images with the utmost precision, one micro-step at a time, on three axes.
Professional Roller Ba g 70
This professional travel trolley bag holds two professional-sized D-SLRs, two 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses, four to five additional lenses, two flashguns, a 17-inch laptop, plus a tablet, tripod and much more. The Roller Bag 70 features the Manfrotto Camera Protection System – specifically engineered to guarantee the highest level of protection and shock resistance where it really counts – and the Exo-tough multilayered construction diffuses any sharp impact shocks, ensuring maximum protection.
The largest and brightest in Manfrotto’s LUMIE range of LED constant lights, the MUSE still only weighs just 140g, and is the size of a cassette tape. It’s perfect for making lighting for your photos and videos simple, flexible and unique. With super-bright, surface-mount LED technology and superb colour accuracy, you can rely on LUMIE to produce excellent images with natural colour every time.
Micro Arm Kit
This versatile and innovative 15cm friction arm kit features an interchangeable anti-rotation attachment and additional 3/8-inch adapter, which allows equipment to be securely interlocked so the arm will not rotate when attached to a tripod or bar through a clamp.
07 Lastolite HiLite
The Lastolite HiLite background allows you to achieve ‘high key’ photography on location and in restrictive spaces. Using the HiLite means you no longer need to use a background light behind the subject. The background also works as a large rear softbox and illuminates the subject – plus the whole thing is collapsible, making it easy to take with you, and saving on space when it’s not in use.
Lumen8 Flash Kit
The Lastolite Lumen8 flash kit has been designed for photographers who need to be mobile. With flash heads, reflectors, light stands, softboxes, sync cables and a case, this kit is ideal for photography on the move.
