Rate & Review

The Cartoni Focus 8 Fluid Head with Sliding Plate And APTP Tripod (75mm) is assembled with 1 handle, 1 stage aluminum DSLR/UHD Tripod, mid-level Spreader and rubber feet. This System includes a soft bag. The FOCUS 8 Fluid Head is the ideal support for the latest ultra-lightweight cameras weighing from 0 to 8Kg (17,7 lbs). Extremely compact, the 8 features a continuously variable fluid damping system on both pan and tilt movements and a unprecedented patented variable counterbalance which brings its range of use to cover all existing cameras. The FOCUS 8 Fluid Head comes equipped with a sliding camera plate compatible with Sachtler ACE and Manfrotto standard plates, spirit level and orientable pan bar. Its tilt angle is +/- 90° with perfect response throughout the entire tilt range. FOCUS 8 interfaces with all 75mm bowl base tripods and supports. The extreme ruggedness and versatility together with the superior quality/price ratio makes the FOCUS 8 the best possible support for its range.

The aluminium 1 stage Tripod for DSLR/UHD cameras with 75 mm bowl base is compatible with CARTONI SmartPro Fluid Head. When assembled with mid-level spreader, requires pivoting tripod feet. Plastic mid-level Spreader for DSLR/UHD Tripods (1 and 2 stages). Light soft bag for DSLR/UHD and ENG Systems (1 stage only). The Focus 8 consists of 127 parts, machined or cast to micrometric precision and hand-assembled and adjusted to precision by one engineer at a time. A follow-up to the Cartoni Focus HD head and an evolution of the original Focus head, this Focus 8 incorporates the same quick release plate system as on the Sachtler Ace and Manfrotto video heads, and integrates a new composite material in many parts that allows for a solid build while keeping the weight down. Of course, it also features Cartoni's renowned counterbalance and very smooth, "true" fluid drag. The Focus 8 uses the same patented spring-loaded counterbalance system used in the original Focus head. The pan drag control is a large ring in the center of the head that's easy to use even without looking. This and all other controls are designed with ergonomic grips that will feel secure between your fingers.
