Vinten VB100-FTGS Overview

  • 1Description

This Vinten System Vision 100 FT Head, Carbon Fiber Tripod, Ground Spreader, and Case supports cameras and accessories weighing up to 44.1 pounds and is well suited for medium to large camcorders. The Vision 100 head features a 100mm bowl, adjustable pan bar, a sliding balance plate to balance your camera, variable counterbalance adjustment, and variable tilt drag. The head also features a tilt range of -90 to +90°.

The included flowtech 100 carbon fiber tripod is lightweight, supports a 100mm bowl, and comes with a ground spreader. The system comes with removable rubber boots that can go over the spikes and connect the legs to the spreader. The two-stage legs have three locking points and can be adjusted individually when the spreader is removed. The tripod supports up to 66 pounds, which can easily handle the weight of the fluid head as well as your camera and accessories.

Additionally, each leg features a magnetic locking system strong enough to hold them together during transport, but gives enough to easily release the legs when you want to set them up. Use the included padded carry bag for storing or transporting the head and legs.

  • VISION 100 Fluid Head (100mm Ball Base) (Black)

    The Vision 100 Fluid Head (100mm Ball Base) (Black); Designed and engineered to new advanced levels, it is the perfect head for today's latest digital camera configurations and one-piece camcorders. Incorporating a drag mechanism employing non-contacting thin film technology, which ensures consistent drag and constant performance over a temperature range from -40°F to +140°F.

    The Vision 100 gives precise movement and excellent camera control during the critical slow start up of your shot, with a seamless transition into whip pan and instant recovery to the original drag setting at the finish of movement. Calibrated with variable adjustment and a single turn rotation from fully on to off, the drag knobs are backlit for easy viewing and detented to give a "dial-in feel" and to ensure settings are always maintained. Offers perfect balance throughout its payload range and allow heads to tilt through the full range of ±90°, without being anxious that the tripod will tumble.

    For smooth movement and total control - imperative to provide those perfect shots first time....

    Perfect Balance
    The Vision 100 pan & tilt head achieves the Perfect Counter Balance by means of an innovative and patented infinitely-variable spring mechanism. This allows the head to tilt through the full range of ±90° in perfect balance, eliminating a considerable amount of physical effort required by the operator to control the tilting action. Since the camera is perfectly balanced, it can be left at any angle - totally hands free - without having to lock the tilt brake. The variable counterbalance mechanism allows it to be used with a variety of lenses, batteries, viewfinders and on-camera lights.

    For even faster setup, the Vision 100 offers a digital counterbalance readout, with repeatable balance setting. The display is activated by a simple press of a button and remains visible for 15 seconds.

    TF (Thin Film) Drag Control
    The Vision 100 uses the Vinten TF (Thin Film) damping system, to provide consistent drag and constant performance in demanding conditions from -40°F to +140°F. The TF system offers total control, for precise movement and excellent camera control during the critical slow start-up of your shot. Providing seamless transition into Whip Pan and instant recovery to the original drag setting at the finish of the movement.
    Calibrated with variable adjustment and a single turn rotation from fully On to Off, the drag knobs are backlit and are adjusted accordingly (depending on the lighting conditions) by a light sensor built into the digital readout. For easy viewing and detented to give a "dial-in feel", ensuring that settings are always maintained.
    Quick Setup
    Unique design features allow fast setup - a must if you are continuously on the move. The leveling bowl has a double threaded screw shank, which allows the bowl lock to be tightened and released quickly. Very handy when you are constantly adjusting the bowl to level the camera (especially on uneven terrain).
    Tough die-cast body ensures robustness, while quality design and construction provide a lifetime of precision.
    Adjustable camera mounting plate with unique rubber grip strips holds the camera rock steady.
    Built-in illuminated bubble for horizontal leveling, ensuring easy leveling even under unfavorable lighting conditions.

  • flowtech 100 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ground Spreader

    The Vinten flowtech 100 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ground Spreader 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 7.1 pounds, yet they can support a payload of up to 66 pounds, and extend from a minimum height of 16.9" to a maximum height of 62.6" when using the included removable ground 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.

    Features

    Dual-stage, carbon fiber, 100mm bowl tripod.
    Three 3/8"-16 accessory mounting holes are integrated into the outside of the 100mm bowl.
    The legs by themselves weigh only 7.1 pounds but support up to 66 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.
    When using the ground 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 100mm 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 lock at the bottom to lower or raise the legs.
    The legs incorporate a locking mechanism that enables the legs to move freely for working with a spreader, or to lock at one of three angles when working without a spreader.
    With the spreader, the height range is 16.9 to 62.6". However, if you remove the ground spreader and utilize the built-in locking mechanism, the usable height range is 10.2 to 60.2".
    When closing the legs, there is room for the ground spreader to be folded up while remaining attached. The legs feature a magnetic locking system strong enough to hold them together during transport, but it also allows you to easily release the legs when you want to set them up.
