Designed for camera operators on-the-go, the SDS Tripods are a set of patented tripod legs that allow camera operators to set up and fold their tripod in an instant. Available in 75 and 100mm, the SDS Tripod legs have a payload capacity of up to 60kgs (132 lbs). The patented SDS Tripod is equipped with a single lock that secures all stages and allows all the legs to be deployed simultaneously for extremely fast set up. The SDS Tripod features a patented dual-stage spreader which can be deployed for extremely high or low shots (50 mm-155 mm or 19.7 in.-71 in.) while maintaining torsional rigidity and stability no matter the payload. Using an innovative ring system, camera operators simply pull the ring and both the 3 legs and spreader close in a single motion! The SDS Tripod sets up & folds in an instant! Moving locations is now easy and quick.

From April 8 – June 8, 2019, Cartoni users are invited to submit in-use pictures or a short video showcasing how Cartoni heads & tripods supports their passion. Judges will select five finalists and feature the photos and videos across social media and invite the public to vote on the top three winners. Winners will receive an SDS Tripod system with FOCUS fluid head and have the opportunity to test and get a first look at upcoming Cartoni product launches.
