They've owned Manfrotto for a while, as well as Gitzo, and even Lastolite and Avenger. Kinda crazy to think they are all owned by the same company. What's interesting is that they own so many companies, yet you really don't see much "rebranding", or maybe I'm missing it. They don't seem to be like GM, who would sell the same vehicle with 12 different badges on it.

Lowepro plus Joby was only worth $10.3 million? Lowepro must have crazy low margins.


First three Canon 5Ds. Some lights (some really fancy ones too). Some glass (maybe a few too many but who's keeping track?). Some cool stamps on my passport.
