Accessory creator Manfrotto has just launched a new range of bases, booms, heads and dollies aimed at Virtual Reality content creators. The company claims to be the first to produce, "unique, dedicated products designed to support professionals and enthusiasts shaping the future of photography and videography," and that its new range makes VR creation easier and more enjoyable.

The Manfrotto 360° Virtual Reality range includes:

  • VR Clamp and VR Adjustable Dolly
  • VR Mini Tripod Kit
  • VR Aluminium Base with/without half ball
  • VR Pump Cup with spigot adapter
  • VR Carbon Tripod
  • VR Panoramic Head

The company says that the bases have been designed to provide solid, motion-free support ensuring cameras remain as still as possible, and that their foot-prints are small enough that they won’t appear in the frame. The bases offer a choice of carbon fibre or aluminum materials, and booms are provided to enable images to be taken at various heights.

Prices for the range start at £30/$35 for a clamp and top out at £680/$690 for the Multi-Row Panoramic Head. For more information, visit the Manfrotto website.
