Cartoni To Introduce Sports 200 Heavy-Duty Tripod Legs

Cartoni will introduce its new Sports 200 heavy-duty tripod legs at NAB 2019. The new Sports 200 was designed to meet the rigorous demands of sports and outside broadcast (OB) production.

Cartoni said the Sports 200 is built with duralumin, used in the aircraft industry, and offers superior torsional rigidity with camera packages up to 441 pounds in all possible large camera/lens configuration.

The Sports 200 profile is angled and shaped to ensure maximum strength while weighing 23 pounds. Designed to withstand even the harshest weather conditions, the Sports 200 can endure severe weather conditions, rain, dust, moisture and extreme temperatures.

“The new Sports 200 is a game changer. It features an extremely innovative aluminum profile and angular structure, which gives camera operators a sturdiness you simply cannot get from standard tripod tubes. The rigidity allows camera operators to be extremely precise in their movements – from whip pans to tracking players or objects,” said Elisabetta Cartoni, president and CEO of Cartoni.

The Sports 200 features a center brace and a telescopic mid-level spreader that is equipped with a truss structure that ensures stability in any environment.


Set up is fast. Each leg features positive rotary locking knobs and safety pins while the bubble level is located on the side of the platform for easy use. The Sports 200 also features both a spiked foot for soft terrains and a pivoting rubber pad for flat surfaces. Twist the rubber pad to reveal the spiked foot.


The Sports 200 accepts classic Mitchell flat base heads and the four standard bolts. It is compatible with all competitor heads, as well as the Cartoni HD Dolly and HD floor spreader.


The new Sports 200 comes with a five-year warranty.
