The Tiffen Company Launches Three Exceptional Davis & Sanford Tripods at CES 2014


Precision engineering and rugged design provide photographers and videographers a new range of exciting camera support options; see them first at CES at booth C9143.

Las Vegas, NV – January 7, 2014 – The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer of award-winning digital imaging accessories, will be showcasing three new tripods from its Davis & Sanford brand at the 2014 International CES exhibition held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 7 – 10 (Central Hall, Booth 9143). “The Tiffen theme at CES 2014 is ‘Ahead of the Curve,’ and these new Davis & Sanford tripods hit at the heart of this motto. Inspired by the tremendous work our customers produce, we designed three incredible Davis & Sanford tripods that will aid in their quest to create the world’s greatest images,” states Steve Tiffen, President and CEO.

New Davis & Sanford tripods shown at CES include the compact Steady Stick 3QR with quick release system as well as new additions to the existing Davis & Sanford lines: Magnum P336 and the Vista Attaras 4M Tripods. “Our customers will go to great lengths to capture the perfect shot and we have carefully crafted tripods to support their needs for versatility, performance and sturdiness. Whatever their vision is for the image, the new Davis & Sanford tripods are precision-engineered to make it a reality,” comments Steve Tiffen.

In addition to showcasing the brand new tripod lineup, Davis & Sanford will be featuring the Pro Elite series, winner of the Videomaker Tripod of the Year award (December 2013).
