This Vinten System Vision blue5 with Flowtech 75 Carbon Fiber Tripod, Mid-Level Spreader, and Rubber Feet supports cameras and accessories weighing from 12.1 to 26.5 pounds, and is well suited for medium to large camcorders, as well as DSLR/Mirrorless cameras in shoulder rigs with accessories. The head features a sliding balance plate to balance your camera, infinitely variable counterbalance adjustment and tilt drag. The head also features a tilt range of -90 to +90°.
The included Flowtech legs are a lightweight set of tripod legs that can be used with or without the included mid-level spreader. The legs support up to 44 pounds, which means they can easily handle the weight of the included Vision blue5 head as well as your camera and accessories. They extend from approximately two feet to five feet, and are extremely resistant to twisting when you pan. Additionally, each leg features a single lock near the top of the leg that allows you to open the leg sections to raise or lower the leg. The included padded carry bag is for storing or transporting the head and legs.

Vinten Flowtech 75 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet
The Vinten Flowtech 75 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet eschews the common single or double carbon fiber tube design and instead has redesigned the shape of the legs for improved torsional strength. The legs weigh under 7 pounds yet they can support a payload of up to 44 pounds, and extend from a minimum height of 24″ to a maximum height of 61″ when using the included removable mid-level spreader. Each leg features a single clamping lever that locks and unlocks the sections.
Each leg extends or retracts independently from the other two, and when it is detached from the spreader each leg can pivot without affecting the other legs. This is especially useful when working on rough or uneven terrain. You can remove the spreader completely and lock each leg in one of three positions, so you can work without a spreader if you wish. This enables you to spread the legs extremely wide for low shots, while the tripod legs maintain their torsional stability. The dual spikes at the end of each leg provide extra grip when working on softer ground, and you can snap rubber feet onto the dual spikes for better grip when working on hard or delicate surfaces.
