Sachtler Flowtech 75 overview

  • 1Description

The Sachtler Flowtech 75 MS 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 work weigh just 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.

Features

Dual-stage, carbon fiber, 75mm bowl tripod
Weighs only 6.4 pounds but supports up to 44 pounds
The design and construction of the legs provide tremendous torsional stability. In other words, the legs resist twisting when you pan the tripod head.
The included mid-level spreader allows you to work on uneven terrain such as stairs or rocks while preventing the legs from flying apart. When using the mid-level spreader, you can use the included rubber feet to protect delicate surfaces from the tripod's foot spikes.
Each leg features a single clamping lever lock design at the top of the leg, near the 75mm bowl. This allows you to loosen all three leg sections from a single location, saving you time while reducing the wear and tear on your body as you don't have to bend down to loosen a leg lock at the bottom to lower or raise the legs.
The legs incorporate a locking mechanism that enables the legs to move completely freely, suitable when working with a spreader, or to lock at one of three angles, suitable for use when working without a spreader.
When closing the legs, there is room for the mid-level spreader to be folded up while remaining attached. The legs feature a magnetic locking system strong enough to hold them together during transport, but allows you to easily release the legs when you want to set them up.

    Sachtler Flowtech 75 reviews

    Flowtech 75 MS Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great design, poor execution? So I have only had this a few days and yet to use under real world critical situation. Ive been practicing moving around and setting up and breaking down in a rush. This morning I took it out of the bag and the legs wouldnt open...I started fiddling with the legs and the locks that prevent the legs from opening all the way and turning the tripod upside down. As I did I noticed that there was a rattling and eventually 2 set screws fell out (one from each leg) they were jamming the mechanism. They appear to have also chipped the part of the tripod that prevents free movement of the legs as well as made scoring marks (as seen in the photos attached. Not sure if this is a random case of extra parts, or if those screws served a purpose. It seems to work well after this but I will keep you informed if anything else becomes a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer Game changing design. I was hooked when I watched the first video showcasing this tripod. Finally a company solved all the headaches I had with tripods. I think other manufacturers will go this route in the future. It is definitely revolutionary, which is rare for a tripod! No more painstaking leg adjustments and hurting your fingers on the leg release. Time will tell if it holds up. But based on the build quality, I have high hopes! This piece of kit gets 6 out of 5 stars from me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design. This is the best tripod design that I have seen in my almost 40 years of shooting film and video. It's lightweight and easy to adjust and level even when the camera is mounted. I love having the locks where they are easy to reach. It is perfectly steady when using a fully rigged out Canon C300 and 40" slider. The magnets keep the legs firmly together for easy transport. It has all the build quality that you expect from Sachtler. I does have an odd rainstick sound effect when extending the legs, but that's an observation not a criticism. I would definitely recommend this tripod. Yes it's $$$$ (it's Sachtler), but your back will appreciate it at the end of the day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth two tripods... Lightweight but strong. No more bending over to make height adjustments. I bought the attachable carry handle and it's magnificent. For proper folding/closing of the legs make sure you get the right head for it. It does best with heads with the straight leveling handle as apposed to the petal (three-prong or four-prong) or wingnut style. It's been great so far. Did I mention how light it was?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best legs I've used This definitely looks like it's too good to be true from all the ads, but let me tell you, these legs are a dream. It's never been easier to be a single operator and adjust legs on the fly. They are light and the flowtech mechanism works perfectly. The feet grip well so there's never any shake. Would buy these over and over again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Choice Was curious about the new leg lock design. Turns out that it does work as advertised, and is highly useful. Today I was testing a 500mm Nikon lens and noticed some camera shake when supported on a Really Right Stuff TVC -33 tripod. I swapped the Sachtler for the RRS and duplicated the test. The previous shake was measurably reduced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set of sticks I honestly have yet to find a flaw. This is the easiest to use, most rock-solid set of sticks I've ever owned.
