photographers can now buy a tripod and ball head complete with a three year warranty,
for less than 80 (ex VAT).
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."
