About Flashpoint F-1127

• Adorama has studied for many years the needs and wants of the beginner, advanced and professional photographer. All the equipment that bears the Flashpoint name meets these essential qualifications, equipment that is dependable at a fair price.
• The Flashpoint Carbon Fiber Tripods are yet another fine example that follows in the Flashpoint tradition; high quality tripods that can go the distance. Made to Adorama's specifications, you'll feel the quality the first time you set it up. Leg locks that work! They open and close with ease. Pride of ownership is only a small reason to have one of these fine tripods in your equipment bag.
• Featuring classic European Styling, these Flashpoint tripods have all the features of other carbon fiber tripods, except the high price. Besides its legendary light weight, carbon fiber does not transfer heat like aluminum, but does absorb vibrations. This feature helps to insure sharper images.
• All Flashpoint tripod legs have rubber double-grip twist locks. The center column can be separated into a low column for ground level use. The supplied wrench can adjust the leg friction to match the photographers needs. Leg tips can be set with either a rubber pad or ground spike for rugged terrain.

Flashpoint tripod was disappointing

By

The tripod did not hold my camera securely. Got stuck in the upright position. Piece broke off. I did return for a replacement and hope that I can post a different reponse when I get it.

Great tripod

By

from Ohio  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Great tripod to travel. I wanted a light weight tripod to be able to carry around. This fits perfectly. I can adjust it quickly. It's sturdy. Just what I wanted.

Not happy......

By

from Nashville, TN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have had this tripod for about 8 months and it is falling apart. The issue is the cheap plastic collars inside the adjustment knobs are breaking and when the legs are slide outward they completely slid out of the larger leg they are inside of. Two of this have broken and I am dumping this product.

Lightweight Travelers Tripod

By

from Stuart Fl.  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a very stable platform for video and DSLR use. My equipment is a Nikon D90 with a Tamron 18-270 Zoom and a Canon HV20 video cam. It's reasonably light and folds out quickly.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  What is the Leg Diameter?
GLENDA W  Diameter is a good inch.
LINDA H  Is this triod sturdy at full extention and are the leg locks easy to use?
JOHNATHAN E  Yes, one the main reasons I like and have bought twice this tripod is because a tripod is only as sturdy as its thinnest leg section, and the Flashpoint F-1127 has stocky thicker lower leg sections. The leg locks work fine, too, unless they get wet in freezing temperatures when they ice up.
kate t  do these legs extend 90 degrees?
EDWARD R  Almost. I'd say 85° at least. Not a bad tripod at all for the money. I needed something light I can carry during event shoots, and this is it, without the high price tag usually associated with carbon fiber.
