This Sachtler System FSB 8 Fluid Head with Sideload Plate, Flowtech 75 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet supports cameras and accessories weighing between 2 and 20 pounds, and is well suited for DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and small- to medium-sized camcorders. The head features a sliding balance plate with 4.7" of adjustment to balance your camera, 10 steps of counterbalance adjustment and 3 steps plus a zero setting of independent pan and tilt drag. This amount of adjustability combines to give you precise control of your camera on the head, and the ability to easily tune your set up on a shot-by-shot basis.

The 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 FSB 8 Fluid Head with Sideload plate as well as your camera and accessories. The legs extend from approximately two feet to five feet and are extremely resistant to twisting when you pan. Additionally, each leg features a single locking lever near the top 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.

  • Flowtech 75 MS Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet

    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.

It is made with a high-density 900D fabric, which is both flame retardant and water-resistant to help ensure that your equipment stays safe. Additionally, layers of both open-cell and closed-cell foam are used in the construction to protect your gear against small bumps and shocks.

    The bag opens via a full-length zipper found at the top, which allows for easy access while shooting. For transport, two straps on each side can be connected to an integrated handgrip for easy carrying. There are also small handles on each side of the bag where the zipper ends, and right next to them are D-rings that can be used to connect an optional shoulder strap. Finally, a clear plastic window on the outside allows you to insert a tag with your name or phone number for easy identification when travelling.

System FSB 8 Fluid Head with Sideload Plate, Flowtech 75 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid but the rubber legs slip when in lower positions Solid tripod, love the size and how fast it is to set up. However, during shoots where I've had to spread the tripod legs wide, the rubber often slips easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rubber Foot too Fragile Actually I did not have a chance to go on field and try this product but my first impression is not 100% positive because opening the box I faced the damage of one rubber foot. I guess many other users will hold the same issue including the risk of losing it. The carbon fiber legs seem to be fragile but I hope I'm completely wrong about this point.� Beside the darkside lots improvements were done to make this product an amazing tool for those who look for a quick operation. At first looking I like the Quick Release Lever as well the facility on removing the Mid-level Spreader which allows shooting at low level. The case is not strong but it's nice. Concerning to the fluid head is gorgeous� the sideload plate and the self illumination Touch Bubble which allows easy levelling under unfavourable lighting conditions. Later on I can recomend it or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast , time saver First i wanna say we had a travel show in turkey for 35 days with A and B cameras (sony fs7II) , so we ordered two sachtler flowcine fsb8 tripods . When i first saw them i knew they will help us a lot and save time , so i said lets make this trip a test for those tripods . Now at the end and after 35 days of 33 days of filming across turkey im verry happy to tell that the flowtech system is super heavy duty lightweight fast easy saves time and by that u are making more takes more inserts , the mechanism is very effective and efficient, and for carrying it on shoulder is painless , low mode to high mode in seconds , remove the rubber pads and you have pokes ,as for the fsb8 head its very good and practical only one minor thing the balance knob for plate is so close its hitting the top handle rosette or very tricky when adjusting it , other than that they are a dream for every camera operator
