Manfrotto is introducing the new and improved 685B NeoTec Deluxe Monopod with
four new features including a safety lever, foot pedal, leg warmer and suction
cup foot. From the NeoTec line of Pro Photo Supports, the 685B is built around
an innovative self-regulating mechanism inside the leg that allows the user
to quickly and easily extend each leg to the desired height by simply pulling
downwards. There are no locks, knobs or levers of any kind to contend with.
Once the leg is extended into position, NeoTec's patented internal mechanism
automatically locks it there by pushing outwards on the tubing, exerting more
locking power and further stabilizing the tripod as additional weight is added.




The 685B system features a new safety lever that prevents accidental deployment
of the locking release mechanism. To close the monopod, the safety lever must
be activated, which then allows the grip action handle to be depressed. The
lever is simple to operate while still maintaining the one-handed closing operation.




The updated monopod also features a lightweight rubber foot pedal to make opening
or closing the 685B simple, and a protective leg warmer on the bottom leg section
to provide protection against the elements and a comfortable grip. Also, the
685B includes a suction cup foot for extra ground support and increased grip.



The 685B monopod is designed for support with unprecedented speed. The 685B
can fully extend to 166 cm / 65 inches and collapse to 71 cm / 28 inches. It
has the capability of supporting payloads up to 8 kg / 18 pounds and features
the same "upside down" leg construction, further ensuring its durability
and reliability in all environments.

would benefit from this course. The class will compare point-and-shoot cameras
to SLRs, discuss the differences between the two categories, helping to ensure
a smooth transition. For those who have some experience in post-capture and Photoshop,
this class will offer more advanced techniques, such as burning and dodging and
an introduction to color management. It will also discuss printed layouts, and
how to make newsletters and brochures.



Advanced, Two-day Course, $150: At the advanced level, the "Digital Vision"
course is be divided into two parts: in-field shooting and learning post-capture
computer application skills. The four-hour in-field shooting session is held in
local parks, vibrant streets, during seasonal events like fairs and marathons
to capture newsworthy current affairs. The second component, involves six hours
of classroom time learning techniques from Adobe® Photoshop® Creative
