Leica Introduces Tripod, Camera Mounts
Ideal for mounting Leica X- and M-system cameras, Leica’s new 24/38 ball heads and new carbon tripod provide the same high-quality precision engineering typical of the storied German brand. Well suited for travel and location work, the 2.6-pound carbon fiber tripod when matched with one of the ball heads extends to five feet high and collapse to 1.7 feet when packed.
The 24 ball head can support weight up to 26 pounds while the 38 can support 52 pounds. The 38 features a locking panorama feature that rotates in 15-degree intervals for precise 360-degree capture. A TILT button allows for a tilting video head that can be customized for a two-way tilting motion.
The tripod and ball heads will be vailable at Leica authorized dealers this month.
