New Novoflex Panorama Plates Series Preview

Novoflex Panorama Plates Family overview
As I have recently mentioned in the New Novoflex VR System Slim Panorama Head Preview, along with the said head, there was a full line of Panorama Rotators introduced during the 2014 Photokina show in Cologne, Germany.

Novoflex® the Memmingen, Germany based manufacturer has redesigned and re-engineered its series of five panorama plates (rotators) from which four are new, aimed for different application fields.

One of the finest and highly regarded Caves in Greece is the Drogarati* Cave. Drogarati Cave is a rare geological phenomenon where mother Nature has really taken its time, of thousands of years, in creating drop by drop a spectacular sculpture in the form of stalactites and stalagmites.

New Novoflex VR-System Slim Panorama Head Preview

Novoflex VR-System Slim Panorama Head overview
The NOVOFLEX® name is well known internationally in the photographic support equipment industry. A synonym for novelty and versatility and above all precision and quality.

That's not strange since the company is based in Memmingen, Germany.
Nevertheless, German quality is also accompanied by a premium price, which is another attribute of the Novoflex products.

However, in the 2014 Photokina, past October, Novoflex introduced a new more compact Multi-row Panorama Head intended primarily for the increasing market segment of Interchangable Lens Mirrorless Cameras, yet still capable to accommodate medium DSLRs.

The Novoflex VR-System Slim, besides its innovation and economy in size, is somehow more affordable than previous Novoflex® VR solutions. A fact that will make the fans of German quality quite happy.

Sunwfayfoto has recently released a custom Arca-Swiss® compatible Quick Release Modular L Bracket dedicated to the SONY® α6000 interchangeable lens mirrorless camera.

The design of the new PSL-A6000R L bracket differs in many aspects from the older static Sunwayfoto brackets intended for the NEX series, as it conforms to the concept of the PSL-a7II introduced last March in the Improved Sunwayfoto Custom Modular L Bracket for SONY α7 / α7R preview, which allows for lateral movement.

Hejnar Photo G013-60 Multipurpose Rail Preview

Hejnar Photo G013-60 MPR Front
The Hejnar G013-60 is a long waited shorter sibling of the Hejnar G013-80.

Which G013-80 is well known from its introduction as a horizontal rail in the second version of my Multi Row Panorama Head Ver. II.

This 6" long by 1/2" thick Arca-Swiss® compatible multipurpose rail among other uses is a good candidate for a shorter Long Lens Support Bracket (shorter-long is quite oxymoron but true) as described by Hejnar Photo.
