The California-based filter manufacturer just announced several products aimed at outdoor photographers. Here is quick hands-on preview of these items.
PolarPro, known for their premium and comprehensive range of ND and polarizing filters for drones and cameras, announced the launch of their QuickDraw Collection, described as ”an ultra-versatile system designed for outdoor adventure photographers and storytellers looking for a compact, yet robust camera mounting ecosystem.” This system is composed of three elements:
- The APEX minimalist sturdy tripod. Able to carry up to 25 lbs, this stainless steel mini tripod can support a wide range of cameras and accessories, such as lights and sliders. The laser-etched markings provide 144 leg configurations and permit very low angle photography. The ball head is optional.
- The TRAVERSE strap mount is a QuickDraw harness crafted for swift single-handed operation, so you can move from securely stored to creating with your camera in one quick rotational release. It can support up to 100 lbs.
- The BELAY camera strap. “The engineered attachment point on the bottom of the camera offers a lower carrying profile than conventional straps as you adventure through rough terrain” explains PolarPro.
As a brand ambassador, I was able to get my hands of the system and I was particularly pleased by the APEX tripod, which is very robust. It was able to carry my Canon C200 camera without any wobble. Thanks to the precise marking on the legs, it can be positioned and balanced accurately. I used it successfully for close-to-the-ground shots. It is important to note that the QuickDraw plates are proprietary and incompatible with ARCA style plates.
PolarPro is offering special launch pricing for early adopters. Visit the PolarPro website for more information about this system.
