Calumet launch tripod range - Calumet launch a three-pronged attack on the UK tripod market with their own-brand 6000 series.
Explained Calumet Product Manager Guy Johnson: "This launch is a 1st for the company in the tripod market and it's a three-way winner for any photographer looking for a serious tripod kit at an affordable price.
Firstly, we used our extensive experience of photographer requirements to ensure the new 6000 Series has been precision-crafted to exacting specification.
Secondly, we demanded sturdy construction and total reliability. And that is underpinned by our comprehensive three year warranty.
Thirdly, we needed to make sure this new range was competitive in the market - and with the new entry-level Calumet 6121 with a price tag of just 79.95 ex VAT we have achieved that ambition too."
Added Johnson: "These new models have been walking out of the branches
since we first tested their popularity last month - in fact at one stage we
found ourselves almost 'legless'.
But photographers don't need to worry we've got more stock available now both in-store and on our website www.calumetphoto.com and right now every tripod comes with a free travel bag too."
The Calumet 6000 range comprises the 6121 (79.95 ex VAT), the Calumet 6143 (tripod and three axis QR pan head; 85.95 ex VAT), the Calumet 6261 (medium tripod for 35 mm SLR cameras and medium format equipment; 109.95 ex VAT) and the Calumet 6461 (heavy duty tripod kit complete with precision-geared column-height adjustments; 169.95 ex VAT).
