The Cartoni Focus 12 Red Lock System is the ideal support for the latest broadcast and digital cine style cameras weighing up to 26 pounds for camera operators who are on the go and is combined with the new Cartoni Red Lock Tripod with a Smart Lock Mid-Level Spreader The Focus 12 features the Cartoni Side-Load Quick Release Sliding Plate, illuminated sprit level and easily identifiable red locking levers on pan & tilt and comes with a 5-year warranty. The new Focus 12 carries on the popular Cartoni Focus family tradition featuring a continuously variable fluid dampening system in both pan and tilt movements and an unprecedented patented variable counterbalance which is in tune with the requirements of today's shooters. The sleek Red Lock Tripod features ergonomically designed distinguishable red locks levers and the patented SDS Mid-Level Smart Lock Spreader. The Smart Lock Spreader that was previously only available on the SDS Tripod Series extends by pressing a button to unlock the arms and collapses just by squeezing the legs closed. This spreader features a bind free ratcheting mechanism and folds neatly within the legs of the tripod. Due to its dual extendable sections, the spreader allows for the tripod legs to spread extremely wide while remaining stable, allowing for lower shots than would be possible with a traditional mid-level spreader and collapsing in a moment without binding of the legs. The Red Lock Tripod also includes a 100mm to 75mm adapter ring.
