Kaidan at PMA
Kaidan has announced its new KiWi Pro Rotator, the Fisheye-Landscape Bracket, and a newly redesigned Spherical Camera Bracket. The KiWi Pro Rotator offers a lightweight compact solution for those wanting to shoot multi-row panoramas with smaller point-and-shoot cameras and small SLR-type cameras. Built from high-strength aluminum alloy and composites, the KiWi Pro Rotator ($150) supports all Kaidan camera brackets, including the new Fisheye-Landscape and Spherical Camera Brackets. The Fisheye-Landscape Bracket is primarily designed to accommodate cameras equipped with circular fisheye lenses and also can be used to mount the camera in a landscape orientation; the bracket ($100) is available for the KiWi Pro and QuickPan Rotators. The Kaidan Spherical Camera Bracket ($200) is more compact and rigid than previous editions and features convenient click-stop indicators to help position the swing arm.
