PRESS RELEASE: Sunpak Flexpod Pro Panhead - The Flexible, Lightweight, DSLR Tripod
Bend it, Stretch it, Wrap it Around Anything
Las Vegas, NV - Sunpak, a division of ToCAD America Inc. announces the new Sunpak FlexPod Pro Panhead, the flexible, lightweight, digital SLR tripod that you can bend, stretch and wrap around just about anything. It is the perfect travel companion for today's newest digital SLR cameras and its panhead makes setup super-fast and tracking the action with a camera or camcorder quick and easy. Weighing in at less than 8 ounces, it is the tripod that you won't want to leave home. The FlexPod Pro Panhead is being displayed at PMA 2008, January 31 - February 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth C187.
The Sunpak FlexPod Pro Panhead with its uniquely designed segmented legs can securely wrap around just about any suitable object to give photos a fresh new perspective when attached to one of today's new digital SLR cameras. It can be attached to a pole, railing, chair, fence or tree branch.
The FlexPod Pro Panhead's specially designed non-slip leg segments grip tightly and will not slip when properly wrapped around most smooth, dry surfaces. In addition, it can be used as a tabletop tripod by simply extending its legs. To make setup fast and easy the three-way panhead sets up in a snap and is perfect for today's digital SLR cameras and camcorders.
In addition the FlexPod Pro Panhead is available in black with gray leg rings.
