Composed by Hardware, Software (APP) and firmware, all gone through the Mfi (Made for iPad) Certification, this innovative product is designed to make shooting photos and videos much smarter: by simply plugging the USB cable in to the camera and turning on the App, photographers and videographers are ensured a reliable high-performance connection between their Canon or Nikon DSLRs and their iPad Air.

Furthermore, Digital Director enables the user to place the camera even in the most awkward or difficult to reach positions and conveniently control it remotely.

Manfrotto also added to their bag line with an outdoor line called “Off-Road” and “Pro Light Bags” that give equipment protection but yet doesn’t weigh you down.
