FANOTEC Carbon Fiber Poles

The community has been waiting for a portable, easy to use and yet rigid enough pole for making aerial panoramas using typical DSLRs in the market. FANOTEC poles are easy to operate and carry. They can be extended to maximum height in minutes by pushing up and locking each telescoping section. Made of carbon fiber tubes, they are light-weight, portable and are ideal for on-the-go situations and areas not accessible to vehicle mounted units.
FANOTEC poles are modular in design. Users can start up with a small module and gradually build up the height by stacking it to a larger module. Each module can be used independently (additional parts needed), creating an array of short poles with different stiffness for different applications, such as horizontal pole for cliff panoramas.
Features and Highlights:
• Thick cross-layered carbon fiber tubes for maximum rigidity and durability
• Light weight
• Compact in size - fit most cars
• Anti-rotation system maintains rigid azimuth / yaw locking /accuracy
• support a large range of DSLRs
• 3/8" stud and 3/8" female receiver for working with other accessories
