The TP-80 pedestal is able to support any camera and lens configuration up to a maximum payload of 110kg. The low pressure, air balanced height column is extremely simple to pressurize, using nothing more than a stirrup pump. The unique pneumatic internal design significantly reduces the number of moving parts, and therefore increases reliability and extends the period between routine maintenance checks.
Key features include a convenient circular height lock handle, which moves with the column ensuring that it is always to hand for finger-tip operation. A single control dial for the all-round cable-guard skirt is positioned on the base, as is the easy to operate 1-3 (Crab/Steer) mode changer. These features all go together to make the TP-80 one of the most reliable and comfortable to use studio pedestals of its kind.
Instant access to the wheels for cleaning and inspection is achieved simply by removing the snap-lock panels at each wheel corner – no tools are required.
