Las Vegas, NV (January 31, 2008) - Manfrotto's MODO family of support solutions for compact point-and-shoot digital cameras and camcorders has revolutionized the way consumers take their images. MODO has empowered consumers to do more with their digital cameras and capture clearer, sharper, blur-free photos, further highlighting the fact that in-camera stabilization can't do the job alone. Extending the MODO family and taking the line to the next level, Manfrotto is proud to introduce the ModoPocket - an ultra-compact support solution for small point-and-shoot digital cameras.
Folding completely flat, ModoPocket can fit anywhere and is the ideal solution for today's mobile consumer who always has a digital camera in hand. With the ModoPocket, shooters can effortlessly improve their images and capture sharper, clearer, blur-free photos, especially when longer exposures are required. Users can also tilt their digital camera forward or backward with the ModoPocket, giving them the ability to adapt to any shooting scenario. Once attached, the ModoPocket can be left on the camera when not in use, and when needed, shooters can unfold the legs in a matter of seconds and begin taking pictures.
The ModoPocket is compatible with all small digital cameras featuring a standard 1/4" tripod thread and can accommodate both centered and off-center mounts.
