Congratulations to Sachtler and Vinten! Out of all the tripods that NAB 2018 had to offer, we’ve chosen their flowtech 75 MS as the show’s best tripod!
Flowtech 75 MS Overview
Sachtler teamed with Vinten to create the flowtech 75 MS. The tripod is built with carbon fiber and features a mid-level spreader and rubber feet. Sachtler claims that the flowtech 75 is easier and faster to deploy than any other tripod. They say these sticks are the fastest around thanks to a unique erogomic design that moves the tripod's quick release brake levers to the top where they are easier to access. They also promise that the tripod is easy to carry around and that it has exceptional torsional stiffness because of its extra-wide leg design.
The two-stage tripod also uses a versatile hinge lock mechanism that allows users to capture “extremely low and high shots,” according to Sachtler.
The tripod’s height range without the spreader ranges from 26 to 153 cm, or 10.2 to 60.2 in. With the mid-level spreader, the height range is 63 to 157 cm, or 24.8 to 61.8 in.
