Polaroid Accessories Group Rolls Out Product
For imaging retailers, finding affordable accessories under a brand name consumers know and trust is a Holy Grail kind of discovery. New Jersey-based C&A Marketing recently introduced an accessories division that answers both of the above criteria in the Polaroid Imaging Accessories Group and several new products have rolled out with more planned for later in 2011.
The company has announced anew tripod dubbed the A T T (all terrain tripod). It’s leg tips incorporate a unique 4-way interchangeable system which give the A T T “legs” in even the most challenging situations. The 4 way system includes industrial-grade magnetic disks (10 lb rating per disk) for metal surfaces, heavy-duty suction tips for glass and smooth surfaces, spiked tips for use on outdoor surfaces, and rubber tips for carpeted or porus surfaces. For increased versatility the A T T also features precision milled locking joints and textured rubber O rings to prevent the legs from slipping when wrapped around a surface.
The group also announced a new flash option, the Dua, the first lighting solution, they explain, to integrate both LED and TTL flash technology in a single footprint. The Dua flash was designed for users of interchangeable lens cameras with HD Video & Still image capture modes – a market segment which will be accounting for close to 70% of camera sales in 2011.
