Manfrotto has announced a new range of Pro Light Cinematic backpacks aimed at videographers, the Cinematic Expand and Cinematic Balance.
Both new Pro Light Cinematic backpacks feature Manfrotto’s shock-absorbing Camera Protection System dividers, with adjustable load lifters, sternum straps, shoulder straps and waist belts.
Both the Cinematic Expand and Cinematic Balance are made of water-repellent Rip-Stop material that is a combination of Nylon and polyester.
The Manfrotto Pro Light Cinematic Expand video backpack, priced £169.95, complies with airline carry-on luggage regulations and can hold a modular camcorder such as the Canon C100/300 or Sony PXW FS5/7, along with up to 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached. The backpack can also fit up to 10 extra lenses, video accessories or camera bodies.
With an expandable front panel, this backpack can be made bigger to fit a camcorder with its handle assembled, Manfrotto says.
The Cinematic Expand video backpack also boasts a dedicated tripod attachment that can be configured to carry either a fluid monopod or a video rig.
The Manfrotto Pro Light Cinematic Balance video backpack, priced £169.95, can also be used as hand luggage and can hold a VDSLR or mirrorless camera with several lenses and a DJI Ronin M/MX fully set up, Manfrotto says.
The side pocket can accommodate a DJI RONIN M/MX remote control and main unit, and a zippered pocket inside stores the disassembled bar.
This bag also offers external side access, and a NeverLose strap secures your support of choice for your video gear. There is also a connection to keep your assembled Ronin Grip attached.
