For sturdy support and smooth camera movement, use this System Vision blue3 FT GS Head, Tripod, and Ground Spreader Kit from Vinten.

Included with this kit is a Vision blue3 fluid head with a maximum payload of 14.6 lb, a carbon fiber flowtech 75 tripod with a ground spreader, and a carry handle. The tripod system can be packed away in the included carry case for storage and transport. See below for more information on the individual items in this kit.

Vinten Vision blue3 Fluid Head

Featuring continuously adjustable counterbalance and tilt drag, the Vinten Vision blue3 Fluid Head is a suitable companion to cameras weighing from 6.6 to 14.6 pounds. Counterbalance and tilt drag can be set precisely to your setup so you don't have to deal with "almost" perfect balance. Cameras down to 4.6 pounds are supported with the separately available blueBridge accessory.

Using the 75mm standard ball mount, this head can be balanced atop a tripod with a 75mm bowl. Using bubble level, you can properly frame your horizon lines for perfect horizontal panning. The bubble level itself is illuminated for visibility in dim environments. One press of the bubble level yields 15 seconds of illumination to save battery.

The sliding balance plate included with this head is compatible with the included 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screws for locking down DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, or camcorders. A safety catch ensures that your camera won't fall off the head while the plate is loose. For controlling the head, a fixed-length pan handle is included, and it can be mounted on either side of the head on locking rosettes.

Vinten flowtech 75 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ground Spreader

The Vinten flowtech 75 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 6.4 pounds, yet they can support a payload of up to 44 pounds, and extend from a minimum height of 16.1" to a maximum height of 62.2" 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.


Dual-stage, carbon fiber, 75mm bowl tripod.
Three 3/8"-16 accessory mounting holes are integrated into the outside of the 75mm bowl.
The legs by themselves weigh only 6.4 pounds but support 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.
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 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 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 16.1 to 62.2". 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.

Will this tripod support a PMW - 350 camera?
Asked by: Julie H.
The weight of a built-up PMW-350 is about 14lbs and the weight capacity of this VB3-AP2M is 14.6lbs. My opinion is while it might work fine, I would be concerned that the tripod head would be too weak. I suggest considering a stronger tirpod such as the Vinten Vision blue5 Pozi-Loc Tripod With Head and Mid-Level Spreader B&H # VIVB5APTM.
