Camgear announces Elite Fluid Heads and 3S-FIX Tripods

Camgear has announced Elite Fluid Heads and 3S-FIX Tripods ahead of NAB 2019. For the first time at a major trade show, the company will be demonstrating its Elite series of fluid heads and the 3S-FIX carbon fiber tripod.

I’m not too familiar with Camgear products, but they do appear to be a more budget-friendly solution that offerings from Sachtler, Vinten, Miller, and OConnor.

The Camgear Elite Series of fluid heads feature ergonomic designs with a step counterbalance mechanism. The patented dual wheel counterbalance efficiently reduces the gap between each step, so users can achieve precise, repeatable and accurate camera positions.

The Elite Heads are suitable for both field and studio use. Seven models of the Elite fluid heads are available. All systems sold in North America will be supplied with the new 3S-FIX carbon fiber tripod.

Camgear 3S-FIX tripod system uses a patented one-lock, Lock and Release system, which is claimed to makes raising and lowering both upper and lower legs a simple process.

The internal linkage mechanism is protected from the elements and prevents impact damage on location. The Quick lock and Release mechanism and the FIX clamp/brake handle allow for easy deployment. A user-friendly adjustment tool is provided with all 3S tripods. There are 16 different versions of the 3S-FIX available, ranging from a 75mm bowl head aluminum version with a payload capacity of 50kg, all the way up to a 150mm bowl head carbon fiber version that can support up to 110kg.
