National Geographic. Manfrotto. Gitzo. If you have been into for photography for a while, these are the names of trusted brands already known for their quality and durability. Ask any photographer and one way or another, these brands will pop-up when people asked about reliable gear for tripods, bags and accessories. While their presence here in the Philippines have been floating around somewhere here and there through questionable distribution, the recent launch, showcase last week solidified their presence in the country. Manfrotto, National Geographic and Gitzo brought in their latest products and models and would be widely available nationwide through Henry’s, Colours and highly popular online store Lazada.
Among the Manfrotto items that I was personally excited about were the BeFree series of tripods which are compact but sturdy tripods ideal for Travel and Landscape Photographers. They have both the aluminum and carbonfiber versions for price differences. The handy table-top Manfrotto Pixi also seems to be a favorite. The white variant reminds people a lot of Eve from Wall-e while the gray one reminds me of small fighter robot from Big Hero. The Off-road series is also here. I have tried the Off-road Tripod before and got a mixed-bag review but their backpack is quite interesting. There’s also the Compact Kit series ideal for novices, budget-friendly prices but quality built and design.
