FLM CP30-S4 II Reviews

Great tripod, leaves me wishing for more however.

Don't get me wrong, tripod is great and sturdy for how light and small it is. When I was shopping for tripods, I just wanted a tripod around this height, the same folding length, but I couldn't find one with a thicker leg diameter. If FLM made a CP34-S4 with a 75mm base, that would be the perfect tripod for my use case I think. Currently using an FLM 43-FTR ball head with a Canon EOS 5Dii, EF 24-70mm and 70-200mm, and I'm wishing this tripod was a little sturdier. Great as a travel tripod though so that's great.

Took a while to review because I wanted to use it in less than ideal conditions. I prematurely reviewed a different tripod which was a big mistake... other reviews looked positive and I was happy but didn't use it yet in high wind. This tripod, however, performs admirably in high wind, mud, rocks, water... you get the point. The twist locks are ok... not great... but not going to down-grade the tripod since they do the job. It's light in weight and compact (enough) when folded. Not a beast to lug around but performs like one. No center column!!! Even long exposures turn out very well. Pretty sure I'm done buying tripods now.

Nice tripod

This tripod is made really well and is super light. Great reviews from the pros I subscribe to over on YouTube. The price was right which tipped the scale in favor of this product over something else. Field testing it this weekend, but I’m confident it will work flawlessly.

Very Lightweight and Stable

I got this for backcountry hiking photography trips in the mountains. I wanted something lightweight, durable, and stable enough to hold my D850 full frame camera with a 70-200mm F2.8 lens. This tripod performs great. It is the lightest weight tripod I could find in its class, is super stable even when set up in moving water, and comes with long foot spikes which is great. The only tiny complaint I have is that the locking rings are aluminum without rubber coatings which make them cold in the winter. I added a foam rubber grip on one of the legs to make it warmer to carry as well. I tested the vibration and dampening side by side with my Feisol CT-3442 tripod (very similar specs) and the FLM BLOWS FEISOL AWAY! I will be buying another one of these. No center column is available for this tripod, but for lightweight and portability, I haven't found anything better.

Excellent build quality and stiffness for the price. The relatively compact size for the sturdiness of the tripod and the good review from the The Center Column website sold me on this tripod.

1/2 of current tripod weight!

Been searching for a tripod that is stable without the weight. My current tripod is over 5#. This will be the replacement of that. Legs operate smooth and fast. Quality and feel is definitely worth the money. Highly recommended if you're looking for a light but capable tripod for your setup.

My final tripod

By Jason

After seeing my YouTube heroes switching to FLM I had to see the hype. Guys like Adam Gibbs and Gavin Hardcastle, who have been shooting for decades. This tripod is built incredibly well. It's the only tripod I've seen you can unlock the legs and they can fall into place from gravity. It's very satisfying. If I were to have only one complaint it would be the anodizing on the leg locks and top mount will wear away with use and abuse. Otherwise, for the price, this absolutely cannot be beat. I'm now an FLM guy.

Is the cork appearing material on the tripod mount area easy to damage or dig into with a tripod head?
Asked by: John
The cork on the FLM CP30-S4 II 10X Carbon Fiber Series II Tripod provides a better grip for attaching a tripod head but it would not be recommended for repeated use of changing a head such as switching often from a ball head to a gimbal and back, It is best to only change the head as needed.
