Manfrotto says it’s “the first dedicated range of solutions supporting virtual reality creation”. The range includes bases, accessories and extension booms and it’s designed to capitalise on the growing interest in 360-degree video and immersive content: “Photographers and videographers can effortlessly capture entire scenes around their camera, enabling anyone viewing the content to look around and feel like they are experiencing the scenery in real life”.
The VR bases come in several sizes and are designed to offer proper support even several metres off the ground but still be small enough not to show up in 360-degree shots
Manfrotto’s VR accessories are designed to make 360-degree shooting quicker and easier and the boom extensions can help maximise the shooting height when needed.
There will be a selection of kits and the Manfrotto 360° VR range prices range from £29.95 to £634.95.
