The Daiwa-80 M2 Tripod System is an all-in-one stabilization kit that provides a sturdy, flexible foundation for ENG and EFP applications. Including fluid head, tripod, expandable spreader and soft carrying case, it's the solid base on which any production should be built.
The Daiwa-80 fluid head, with its load capacity of up to 48.5 lbs, is ideal for large digital camera configurations used in professional broadcast, educational and corporate productions. This head is perfectly counterbalanced through a tilt range of +60/-75 degrees, for cameras ranging between 26 to 48.5 lbs (12-22kg).
The 309 Tripod, which shares many of the same features as the 209, uses its dual stage design to get low to the ground, preferred by some ENG and EFP crews. Constructed from hard-anodized aluminum alloy tubing--in conjunction with composite moldings and bronze bearing surfaces--it provides superior structural integrity and unsurpassed reliability. Features a leg locking design that will not permit slippage or over compression (leg damage) and can be field adjusted. The leg pivots are self-adjusting and comes with a 100mm claw ball base and eye hook for cable or accessories.
Used on uneven surfaces such as steps, rocky ground, and inclines, the ML9 Mid-Level Spreader stabilizes the tripod while keeping its legs at an equal or preset distance apart. The spreader's telescoping arms allow the tripod to extend without detaching the spreader. Large rubber footpads provide added stability.
The 890-9 Soft Carrying Case is a soft-sided bag with reinforced sides made from heavy duty Nylon. It is designed to fit the 309 tripod with fluid head.
