• 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 it seems like an inexpensive but serviceable tripod. Obviously not of the highest quality but did not expect so for the very reasonable price.
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.
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!
this is my second flashpoint tripod and just got this,. This is the new version, and has good stability.
