The Manfrotto 360-degree Virtual Reality line includes a VR adjustable dolly, clamps, a mini tripod kit, an aluminum base with or without half ball, pump cup with spigot adapter, a carbon tripod, panoramic head and a carbon fiber boom in different sizes.

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

The Manfrotto 360-degree VR components range in price from $38 to $825.
