Cameras and lenses are not the only things you need to take great pictures. From tripods and lights to standard items and other items you might be curious about. This Course for the InterBEE Walking Tour showcases all of those residual accessories one will need for great shots.
InterBEE Walking Tour Stop 01: Videndam Media Solutions (Manfrotto)
Manfrotto “PRO Light”
Videndam Media Solutions is a global accessory company in the rapidly growing digital multimedia content market that carries many brands that are popular in Japan, including Manfrotto, Gitzo, Rycote, and JOBY.
The Manfrotto PRO Light Cine Loader introduced here is Manfrotto’s new video camera bag currently on sale. The top lid uses a hybrid structure that combines soft and hard materials to protect your valuable equipment. Available in three sizes: S, M, and L, and in load tests, S passed 10kg, M passed 15kg, and L passed 25kg. The product is finished with storage capacity and excellent strength and durability.
It is also designed to be stackable, making it extremely convenient when loading multiple bags onto a location vehicle or basket vehicle. The long strap on the handle makes it possible to secure the tripod on top of the lid when transporting, which shows consideration for the user. All sizes are on display at the booth, and you can check out the actual machine by holding it in your hands. Please feel free to bring your camera and try it out.
In addition, Manfrotto’s “FAST tripod series” whose legs can be quickly extended and retracted, Rycote’s lightweight shotgun microphones “HC-22” and “HC-15” with high sensitivity and low noise, and a pencil released in July 2023. We are exhibiting products in various categories such as type microphones and noise reduction solutions.
The LX-ePed is an electric pedestal system for PTZ cameras. The height can be adjusted by remote control. In addition to P (pan), T (tilt), and Z (zoom), with this tripod, users can finely adjust the height to greatly increase the degree of freedom in angle. Since it is a wired remote control with stepless adjustment, it can be operated reliably even in places where Wi-Fi or Bluetooth cannot be used, such as at event venues.
It can also be powered by a V-mount battery using an optional battery plate. Libec also plans to exhibit new lightweight tripod products. Please check the booth for details.

As for the head, it uses the same one as the previous EK-630, so there are no major changes in specs. The price for this tripod is considerably better than competing tripods.
InterBEE Walking Tour Stop 05: Kenko Tokina, Formatt Hitech
“Firecrest Ultra” ND Filter
Format Hitec’s “Firecrest Ultra” ND filter improves abrasion resistance by placing an ND coating surface between Schott B270i white optical glass. “ND peeling” issues seen with general ND filters is less likely to occur, and the neutrality is high. As a result, it has been evaluated to have uniform transmittance for all light rays, including ultraviolet rays, visible light, and infrared rays, and to have little color shift.
The Kenko Tokina booth displays many lenses and filters made by companies other than Format Hitech.
InterBEE Walking Tour Stop 06: Image Vision/FALCAM
FALCAM camera cage model “3903 (Nikon Z 8 compatible)”
FALCAM plans to exhibit a new camera cage that can be used with the Nikon Z8. The FALCAM camera cage has multiple locations for attaching F22, F38, and F50 quick accessories. This allows users to quickly change shooting styles. The design works easily with accessories too.
The design takes into account the tolerance of devices attached to the hot shoe, and features an aluminum alloy design that does not interfere with the buttons.
