Sachtler Flowtech

I never thought I would lust after a tripod, but after watching the intro video for this new Sachtler Flowtech Tripod, it kind of does.

It seems really compelling, as one can just drop the legs and lock without gymnastic movements?

I need to go and take a look at this when available.

Re: Sachtler Flowtech

It looks very cool. I wish theyd taken even further and made it like the hot pod where there is single button/trigger/release for all three legs at once. also, I know with other speedlock systems lowering height is still a bit of a pain cause you have to collapse/"skinny up" the tripod to get them to go down smoothly/easily. Dont know if thats the case with this. looks like it from the videos.
