Manfrotto has released new accessories expanding their 360° Virtual Reality range.
The new products include the VR Selfie Stick, VR PIXI EVO Kit, VR Aluminium Boom, VR Aluminium Tripod and VR Complete Stand.
The new MTALUVR aluminium tripod looks like a regular tripod but comes with a specially designed adaptor which allows you to mount one of their extension boom poles. This allows you to place the camera high away from the tripod so that it does not appear in the footage. It’s not specified if you can just purchase the two extension pieces on the centre column to modify existing tripods.
For handheld capture, Manfrotto has released a VR Selfie Stick (MPOLEVR) which can be connected to the other products in the VR range.
The Pixi Evo Kit is a modified version of the regular Pixi Evo tripod and a 4-section aluminium pole. The Pixi Evo tripod has two angles for adjustable height and support.
Finally, the MSTANDVR is like a traditional light stand which can be used to set the camera at a range of heights. The angle of the legs can be adjusted and has 4-sections for adjustable height. The stand folds down to a compact size for storage and transport. These style of stands are easier to secure with sandbags.
