Manfrotto unveils new Fast Lock System video tripods


Manfrotto has announced the 645 FTT Fast Twin tripod and 635 FST Single Leg Fast, priced from £999.95, which claim to be the ‘fastest video set-up ever.’

Aimed at professional videographers, Manfrotto’s new video tripods employ its new Fast Lock System and are made of carbon fibre.

Manfrotto’s 645 FTT Fast Twin Tripod is the first model in a new range and offers double tubing and Ultra L-Locks for more strength.

The 645 FTT Fast Twin comes with a 2 in 1 half ball: a standard 100mm bowl along with a 75mm adapter that allows users to swap and use a wider range of video heads.

Other features include a middle spreader lock; however, the spreader is option for use.
