The Vinten Vision 100 System with flowtech 100 Legs, Mid-Level Spreader & Case consists of a Vinten 100 fluid head, a set of 100mm flowtech carbon fiber legs, a carrying handle, and a soft case. The system supports cameras weighing between 15.4 and 44.1 pounds. The Vision 100 head features continuous—not stepped—counterbalance with a digital readout for precise adjustments and smooth operation. The sideload system provides a sliding plate for fine-tuning the balance of your camera on the head while allowing for quick mounting and dismounting of the camera plate.
The 100mm flowtech legs are lightweight, corrosion resistant, strong, and feature a removable mid-level spreader and removable feet. The 100mm bowl enables supporting heavier camera loads than a 75mm bowl, and the increased diameter provides a wider platform for balancing your camera on the included head. Each leg features a single lever lock at the top which allows you to quickly adjust the length of the sections in each leg. Built into the bowl are three 3/8"-16 threaded accessory mounting holes onto which you can attach accessories. One such accessory is the included Sachtler Carry Handle, which enables you to comfortably carry your flowtech tripod and fluid head as you move from shot to shot. The included padded soft carry case protects your system during transport and storage.

Vinten flowtech 100 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet
The Vinten flowtech 100 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader and Rubber Feet eschews the common single or double carbon fiber tube design; instead, it has redesigned the shape of the legs for improved torsional strength. The legs weigh just over 9 pounds, including rubber feet and spreader, yet they can support a payload of up to 66 pounds, and extend from a minimum height of 20.5" 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 on the included rubber feet onto the dual spikes for better grip when working on hard or delicate surfaces. Included with the legs are an attachment mount and a carry handle that mount on the side of the bowl using the 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes.
