The Master C stand base is also offered. This exclusive Kupo Turtle base with patented spring-locking ring is available as an accessory so users can utilize their existing riser sections and gain the ease and speed that this base provides. “The Kupo Master C stand with Turtle base features a unique innovation in the world of C stands,” noted Lederman, “enabling photographers or filmmakers of any skill level to open and collapse the legs in under a second.”
Other newly introduced products include the Master C stand compact base, which is a compact version of the Master C stand base for use when there is limited floor space and a smaller footprint is necessary; and the Runway Base, a compact but strong wheeled base that allows its legs to be folded parallel to one another for storage and transportation. It features a junior 1-1/8-inch receiver to accept a C stand riser section and make the C stand mobile. kupogrip.com
