Attendees of the event at Paramount Studios will have a chance to inspect, up close, newly-developed fluid heads, tripods, specialty rigs, matte boxes, lights and power systems, and have their questions answered by Manios Digital & Film camera professionals.

The company will be showing several new products from Italian camera support manufacturer Cartoni developed for film production. They include Total Dutch, a revolutionary head design for Dutch angle compositions, which ProVideo Coalition featured recently. Based on Cartoni’s famed Dutch head, Total Dutch expands the canted angle to full 360-degree rotation. The Total Dutch head can be mounted on any heavy-duty pan-and-tilt head and provides nodal settings to any camera package up to 25 kg.
