In fact, the products that now appear under the common name are not necessarily new, but simply added to create the range, aiming to simplify the choices when buying material to use in production of Virtual Reality content.

The collection is divided into four sections, Bases, Extensions, Accessories and Kits. Manfrotto VR bases provide a stable support, compact enough not to appear in the 360°shot. They guarantee the necessary stability if you need to go a few meters off the ground with the 360° camera. The section offering Extensions  offers the Manfrotto VR boom extensions, used to maximize camera height according to the type of shooting you are doing. They can be connected to all bases in the Manfrotto VR range, so you can reach a wide variety of heights.

The Manfrotto VR range also includes a wide array of accessories designed to make your 360° shooting even easier and quicker. According to the company, you can “connect the accessories to all products in the range and always obtain the best result”. The Kits section includes small solutions conceived to make it easier to create the perfect 360° shots from many different perspectives. Simply select the kit that fits your 360° camera best, according to the type of results you want to obtain.

One example of an available kit is the Manfrotto VR Small Aluminium Kit, presented as a very small and lightweight and always ready to support a small 360 camera. The kit is composed of a table top tripod and a dual-section column extension: both are made of rugged, heavy-duty aluminium, which makes them extremely sturdy for their compact size. The kit holds a payload up to 2 kg. It features sturdy legs with sure-grip tips for stability. Thanks to the adaptor provided, the connection on top can easily be changed from ¼” to 3/8”, according to the type of device used. This kit folds down small enough to slip into your camera bag or coat pocket.

Tripods, big and small, appear under the Bases offer, with solutions for small and big cameras. The new collection has a total of 11 products, presented as a complete modular offer for VR content filming. Follow the link to know more about the Manfrotto 360 Virtual Reality range.
