Last week we saw UK company, Vitec Group, launched four premium camera equipment brands that should entice the professional and enthusiast photographers who wants the best for their field. Vitec brands include Kata, Manfrotto, National Geographic, and Gitzo.
Kata is a brand known for the lightest and most protective bags in the market. The new collections: D-Light, Pro-Light and Ultra-Light, feature a combination of innovative materials and technologies while paying attention to the smallest of details, in order to minimize weight without compromising protection and functionality.
Manfrotto designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of camera and lighting support equipment for the professional photographic, film, theater, live entertainment and video markets. The product line includes an extensive range of camera tripods and heads, lighting stands and accessories.
They also design bags that are not only functional to the photographer but stylish as well. Their Lino collection offers the first ever combination of two product families: bags & apparel. The Stile collection is the first in the market to recognize and address the carrying needs of the specific new generation of “œSocial Recorders” with their mobile phones, laptops, digital cameras, mp3 players, GPSs, i-Pads and much, much more.
This brand has been around for over 90 years. Professionals the world over acknowledge Gitzo tripods, monopods, heads and accessories as setting the industry’s standards for excellence. Versatile and timeless, even a Gitzo tripod purchased over 25 years ago is compatible with accessories available today and can still be serviced almost as though it were a brand new model.
Gitzo’s carefully crafted products make up a comprehensive range of supports for large, medium and small cameras, for film or digital technology, for still photography or video, for studio or location work.
Gitzo has stayed at the cutting edge by utilizing space-age materials such as high strength, lightweight aluminum alloys, carbon and basalt fiber tubing and cast magnesium, to ensure absolute stability and efficiency.
Adventure is a word often associated with National Geographic and their photo bags are all about helping you make the most of your everyday adventures. These bags combine functionality, environmental awareness, and distinctive style.
Designed to offer a more urban option, the bags are an ideal blend of today’s media carrying requirements and a sophisticated “˜urban jungle’ look and feel. They provide ample room to carry cameras, media gadgets, laptops, accessories and personal belongings.
