The Famous Todd-Pod Safari Roof Hatch Big Lens Support
$220.00 plus $11.00 for US shipping
The safari Todd-Pod is a T mount that allows a WIMBERLEY or similar tripod head to be used with big lenses from the roof of a safari vehicle.. It is perfect for use with Land Rover Defenders, Toyota Land Cruisers and safari vans that have been outfitted with three roof hatches. Todd-Pods have been designed with safari vehicles in mind. The Todd-Pod allows you to easily follow the action and even make great flight shots from the top of a safari vehicle. You can lift the whole rig and move it from one side of the vehicle to the other. The design of the set up allows for hours of safari photography without the hunched posture or back and leg strain associated with shooting off of a bean bag. This added shooting comfort will keep the photographer fresher both mentally and physically and will allow more energy to go into making beautiful images.
Todd-Pod in Action
East African / UK Todd-Plug – The solution to your Africa power distribution problems $109.95 plus $7.00 shipping. Extra double power cords are $25.00 each.
This plug is for use on electronic devises that have dual 110-240 voltage power (ie. Nikon and Canon battery chargers, Toshiba and many other lap top computers).
Travelers know the pitfalls of foreign electric power supply. The amount of time, effort, weight, and expense of transformers, converters and adapters is at least an inconvenience. At worst it can be a disaster if they all blow up the first day out! Ask Art about this! FINALLY, after doing this for 15 years I have developed a system for recharging that makes power a non issue for digital photographers. All you need is one outlet in your room. There is a new product called the Todd-Plug. It has an East African plug head and 4 East African inputs. The best part is that the power cords are universal cords that will power Canon and Nikon battery chargers as well as any laptop computer with dual voltage and a universal plug end! Make sure that your computer cord is a universal plug (the end that goes into the computer power box). The Todd-Plug comes with the power strip and 2 double power cords. There are 2 power strip outlets left if you need them. Just use UK adaptors for things like Quantum or AA battery chargers.. You can power 6 units at the same time off of one outlet.
IF YOUR POWER PLUG DOES NOT MATCH THE ATTACHED PHOTO OF THE UNIVERSAL CORD END
Here’s what you do. Go to Radio Shack with the cord that fits your electronic device. Tell them you want one just like it. Send the extra one to me. The cord that extends to the computer does not matter. You will bring the converter box to Africa and leave the power plug cord at home. The Todd plug will power your converter box. It’s the same with your camera chargers except they are the 2 hole plugs. You don’t have to get extra of those. Leave them at home and the Todd-Plug will power those converter boxes.
