Covering The Photo Beat; Lighting Kits, Tripods, And A Waterproof 10Mp Camera Page 2
Induro's Adventure-Series Tripods
This new line of tripods was created with the budget-conscious photographer in mind. Each of the durable and lightweight Adventure tripods comes as a kit that includes a head and carrying case. The tripods feature three-position leg angle adjustment that allows you to adjust each leg section independently and lock them in place with flip-lever locks. The center column is reversible and has a grooved slot to prevent unwanted rotation. The single action ball-locking level controls movement; the tripods also feature a quick-release plate system. The AB0 model has a retail value of $136; the AB1, $159; and the AB2, $181. Contact: MAC Group Induro Division, 8 Westchester Plaza, Elmsford, NY 10523; (914) 347-3300; www.indurogear.com.
