PolarPro has been known for its first-class and comprehensive range of ND and polarization filters for cameras and drones for several years.
Due to the high quality and durability of their glass, they appear on the GoPro official website as a preferred choice.
The company has also vigorously considered the feedback from industry-leading photographers and videographers to improve their product line. These collaborations complement their research into research and development.
PolarPro differs from other options on the market by the high durability of each product in its product range, which is characterized by first-class quality.
PolarPro has taken an important step into the photo market by adding new products to its portfolio. The QuickDraw collection is an extremely versatile system for outdoor adventure photographers and storytellers who are looking for a compact yet robust ecosystem for camera mounting.
Jeff Overall, founder of PolarPro, said:
“When we started designing the new product ecosystem, we wanted a mechanism that would allow photo and video shooters to switch from safe to grasping in a very short time.
Whether you’re looking for beautiful scenery on your next travel adventure or want to venture through town, the QuickDraw collection is a tool for those who need to pack light without sacrificing performance. “
What is the quickdraw collection?
The new PolarPro ecosystem consists of three elements: Apex Travel Tripod, Traverse Strap Mount and Belay Camera Strap.
The cornerstone of the kit is the
Fast drawing Mechanism made for quick
One-hand operation, with which you can quickly disconnect the camera by turning it counter-clockwise and reinstall it by snapping it back into place. All three new products are compatible with this system.
Thanks to its unique cross-compatible design, the symmetrical Quick Release plate can be used for the entire QuickDraw collection and other Arca-style brackets.
Apex travel tripod
Tiny but powerful. Apex is a robustly constructed travel tripod that offers stability at the highest level and a load capacity of 11 kg. Lock the position of your camera completely on any terrain by adjusting the laser-etched TiltLocks, which offer a variety of different orientations.
Use your favorite ball head or add the apex ball head for an ultra-light setup. The compact size takes up less space in your backpack than your favorite canteen.
- TiltLocks made of stainless steel with laser-etched markings offer 144 leg configurations
- 11 kg load capacity for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras
- The dimensions are 280 mm x 80 mm and the weight is 500 g
Traverse strap mount
A QuickDraw strap that is designed for quick one-handed operation, so you can switch from safe storage to creation with your camera with a quick twist release. Carry your camera comfortably on your backpack, belt or preferred belt with the carefully designed traverse camera belt.
A secondary locking mechanism ensures that your gear is fully attached during your adventure. This system reliably supports up to 46.36 kg, ensuring that it can handle the heaviest professional camera and lens combinations. It is also used to hold the plate in backpack plates with a thickness of up to 68 mm.
Security camera strap
Easily make sure your camera is always by your side without restricting your movement. The designed attachment point on the underside of the camera offers a lower carrying profile than conventional belts when driving through rough terrain.
This camera strap made of aluminum and industrial nylon and the holder surely carry the most extensive gear.
Who is this bundle for?
It is aimed at adventure and outdoor photographers who need a compact and robust system. From beginners looking for a solution to keep their camera safe during the adventure, to recognized content creators who need a solution to switch between different camera and lens combinations.
What is the advantage of introducing a new system?
The photographer Brian Akerson said:
“The QuickDraw mechanism differs from most others in its build quality and weight capacity. When you get it in your hands, you can immediately see that it can withstand anything you throw at it.
The locking mechanisms give you the certainty that the camera is fully secured. Here too, compatibility with Arca-Swiss brackets is an important factor. You feel safe not only in the proprietary mounts, but also in the others. “
Outdoor photographer Brian Akerson tested the new bundle based on his experience in the field.
“The use of the traverse and securing in the field felt liberating. When I’m in the field, I usually wear two bodies with completely different focal lengths. If my Nikon D850 is attached to the crossbar on the Belay with my Nikon Z 7, I can quickly switch between the two or one of the two Apex tripods.
The large strap lock easily held the weight of my Nikon D610 and Nikkor 200-500mm when I felt I was taking them out of my pocket and ready to go. At no point did I feel that a camera or lens was compromised due to the solid technology and security it offers. “
