Leica Launch New Photographic Accessories - Leica has launched three new accessories, two fitting ball heads and a tripod.
Leica has announced three new premium quality accessories, two fitting ball heads and the Travelling Tripod.
Ideal for use with all Leica cameras, from compacts to X and M-System bodies, the Leica Ball Heads 24 and 38 guarantee that the camera is held securely and steadily in all photographic situations. They are particularly useful when frequently changing the position of the camera and shooting from different angles. The Leica Ball Heads 24 and 38 are further complimented by a set of three quick-change plates, allowing photographers to swiftly switch between several cameras without needing to change the plate.
The compact, lightweight, carbon fibre Traveller Tripod is the ideal accessory for photographers on the go. These carefully crafted new offerings feature optimally harmonised materials that ensure stability, low weight and years of dependability.
The tripod weighs 1.2kg and has exceptional stability. The Mounted ball head actually disappears inside the collapsed tripod, it to fit in any travel camera bag. An outdoor carrying case made of Cordura with a strap and shoulder pad is available as an optional accessory.
The three new Leica accessories will be available from October 2013. The Traveller tripod will retail for £430, the ball head 24 for £200, and the ball head 38 for £330. A set of three exchangeable mounting plates is available for both ball heads are priced at £40, and the Cordura bag for the Traveller Tripod is priced at £60.
