About Flashpoint F-2127

• 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.
• This model has flip locks for fast operations. 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.

So Far, So Good


from Albuquerque, New Mexico  -  Photo Enthusiast

So far it seems like an inexpensive but serviceable tripod. Obviously not of the highest quality but did not expect so for the very reasonable price.


Anxious to Road Test It


from Carmichael, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Replacing a Gitzo Reporter (tank) with something an old lady can lug around and not throw her back out. I love the lightness and the convenient carry case. I'm fond of low light photography and waterfalls and this should help stabilize the camera on slow shutter shots.




from New York  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I just got tripod. I was little worried about quality because one of review was terrible. But I checked tripod was not disappoint at all! I have two other tripod, one is very heavy & strong for my studio shooting, and the other is very lightweight but it can not be low down more then18 inches low! Guess what? Fresh point new tripod dose everything what I want set tripod & it is really cheap price as a carbon fiber tripod. I will enjoy it from now on! Excellent!


I just got this tripod


from atlantic city NJ  -  Photography Student

Questions about this item:

Mohamed M  How dos this tripod compare to vanguard alt pro 263at?
MARC T  I cannot give you a direct comparison as I have never used the Flashpoint F-2127 but I do own the Vanguard Alta pro 263At. I do not give my tripod a lot of use but when I do I find it supports my D-90 nicely, even with my 70-200 F2.8. I use a Vanguard SBH-100 with it. The vanguard suits my needs very well as a hobbyist.
jeanne m  I am new to photography, 60+yrs old, and am learning on a Canon PowerShot SX30 IS which weighs about 1.5 lbs. It is a fixed-lens bridge camera - looks like a DSLR but is not really - that includes telephoto capability to 840mm. I am looking for a tripod 'system' that doesn't require a lot of add-ons. This sounds like a reasonably-priced unit. Does it seem to be a good match for my situation? I enjoy nature photography and am very interested in improving my macro skills. GIGI M
DAVID D G  This tripod should certainly be more than adequate for the intended use and is plenty sturdy if you decide to upgrade to a heavier camera such as a DSLR with long lens. I can't think of anything you would need to add for your intended use. You could make do with a lesser tripod but this one should last a lifetime. I use mine with a medium weight DSLR and a micro 4/3 camera and with lenses up to an equivalent of 600mm and it does the job. I even have used it with a heavy 1000mm equivalent lens and gimbal head (replacing the standard ball head) and it was entirely adequate.
Dorothy W  How does my Canon G12 attach to the ball head? My camera doesn't fit onto the ball head w hose screw is too large for the opening on the bottom of the cmaera. Dorothy
Andrew R  The ball head attaches directly to the tripod. Your camera mounts to the quick release plate. The quick release plate is equipped with a reversible tripod screw 3/8"-16 on one side and 1/4"-20 on the other. You will need to use the 1/4"-20 side.
