Bedfordshire: UK studio lighting retailer Elemental has released the Epod Diversity, a studio tripod which can be converted into a monopod or used as a laptop platform. The Epod Diversity can be bought on their web site or from their eBay shop. You can find an ePHOTOzine review here.
The Epod Diversity has landed!
Elemental, specialists in high quality studio lighting and accessories, have launched their brand new Epod Diversity Tripod System, designed to offer the studio photographer a multi functioning tripod set up, without incurring the cost of several tripods, or losing the core stability of a tripod.
With three multi-angular telescopic legs, the tripod is complete with a central column that converts horizontally to position your camera exactly where you need it to achieve that perfect shot. Extend the column up and the tripod has a maximum operating height of 163cm (without a head). With a weight capacity of up to 8kg and rubber feet (which detach and retract to expose spikes for use on a variety of terrains) the tripod can securely hold a professional camera in the studio and outside. Manufactured from aluminium and weighing 2.25kg, this tripod is packed with extra features!
The Epod Diversity kit includes a professional ball head with circular clutch control for smooth, precise panning and a calibrated quick release plate with two spirit levels. The head can carry up to 8kg in weight. But there’s another addition to the kit and that’s a mini ball head with pinch release mount for mounting smaller cameras or accessories.
For a final twist, one of the tripod legs can be detached and converted to a full size monopod with a maximum operating height of 135cm. The Epod Diversity system also includes an additional beam and a laptop platform which make the system unique. Purchased separately, the beam incorporates four separate mounting points, ideal for positioning multiple pan/ball heads, cameras and other mountable accessories, while the laptop platform offers the studio photographer the stability and convenience of tethered operation without the need for a separate stand, both in the studio and on location.
Elemental take pride in producing value for money studio equipment that ticks all the boxes in terms of power, speed, control, versatility and reliability.
The new E-pod Diversity is priced from £150 and the four point mount beam and platform are available to purchase separately or together with this system from £30. The tripod comes with a 12 month warranty. Visit www.studio–flash.com or call Elemental Customer Services on 0845 643 6443.
