Cartoni Speeds Deployment
CARTONI has introduced a fast deployment tripod system, new fluid heads for broadcast,
studio and digital cinema cameras, and demonstrated a revolutionary concept for enabling
360° Dutch rotation in nodal mode...

ARTONI introduced a new tripod system and
significant expansions to its Master, Maxima
and Lambda lines of fluid heads at NAB. Highlights
included the SDS (Smart Deployment Series) system
tripod, the MASTER 65 and MASTER 30 broadcast and
studio heads, the MAXIMA 30 cinematography head,
and the Lambda 25 third Axis and the Total Dutch
head.
Continuing its history of innovation, CARTONI's new
heads were developed to accommodate today's most
popular camera systems, both large and small, and
provide maximum flexibility in the use of lenses and
other accessories.
"We're very excited about technical advancements
we were able to achieve in our new tripod and
heads," said CARTONI President and CEO Elisabetta
Cartoni. "They were designed with direct feedback
from operators and include a number of patented
features that continue our legacy of advancing the
art and science of image capture."
New products
SDS (Smart Deployment Series) Tripod expands
and improves upon CARTONI's popular Smart Stop
two-stage, single-lever trigger technology with a new
Smart Lock mid-level spreader. It features a patented
"no-bind" mechanism for fast spreading and
collapsing. Combined, they form the most intelligent
and fastest deployed 100mm tripod in the industry.
Three Heads
MASTER 65 is a heavy-duty head for broadcast

cameras with larger zoom or box-type lenses. It
features Cartoni's patented Magnum counterbalance
system and unique silicon fluid drag system, offering
perfect balance, and the preference of heavier drag
with smooth starts and stops and no backlash. The
new drag system is essential for tight shots on long,
zoomed lenses that are subject to subtle camera
movements. At a payload capacity of 44lbs (20kg)
to 143lbs (65kg), it is the largest fluid head in the
MASTER series.
MASTER 30 features the patented Cartoni, "wing"
counterbalance system that provides perfect
balance throughout the full +/- 90° tilt range with
no dead spots. Offered in a flat base, it can easily be
converted to a 150 bowl base with optional adapter.
Its rugged construction can handle payloads up to
66lbs (30kg).
MAXIMA 30 is designed for digital cinema camera
packages. It comes with a patented counterbalance
and fluid drag system, and a wide payload range
of 6.6lbs (3kg) to 66lbs (30kg). Pan and tilt brake
controls are placed conveniently on the left (where
operator muscle memory expects them) along
with four-rosette attachments for pan bars.
The camera plate stage accepts all industry
standard plates (ARRI,
RED, etc.), and the
safety lock and release
latch can be activated
with one hand to either
disengage or remove the
camera plate.

Lamda and Dutch Head
Lambda 25 third Axis is the latest accessory for
CARTONI's popular Lambda 25 head, featuring an
innovative design allowing operators to perform
complete 360° rotation on a third axis. Offering a
nodal setting on three axis, it is ideal for shooting
underslung off a jib arm, dolly shots, or on a slider.
Total Dutch is a revolutionary head design for
creating the ultimate in Dutch angle compositions.
After setting the standard in 2000 with its famed
Cartoni Dutch head, Cartoni has expanded the canted
angle capability with total 360 degree rotation. The
Total Dutch head can be mounted on any existing
heavy duty pan and tilt head and provides nodal
settings to any camera package up to 25kg.
Cartoni has a long and rich history of developing
innovative camera support systems. Its legacy
of high quality Italian design and manufacturing
has resulted in numerous patents and awards,
and helped shape the modern broadcast and
cinematography industries. This dedication to quality
and performance continues today in their Focus,
Master, Maxima and Lambda systems.
