Unique quick release brakes

flowtech® features unique quick release brakes located at the top of the tripod that allow camera operators to easily deploy and adjust the tripod in an instant. All the legs of the tripod can be deployed simultaneously and can quickly adjust to the height that you need and the ground’s surface – eliminating the need to bend over or manually adjust multiple brakes on each leg.

Ergonomic carbon
fibre legs

Carbon fibre profile makes flowtech® lightweight and easy to transport. It’s ergonomically designed to comfortably rest on the camera operator’s shoulder while magnetic locks offer an easy, quick method for locking the legs together during transport. Exceptional torsional stiffness ensures that the tripod doesn’t twist during panning movements.

Versatile hinge lock system

flowtech® comes with a hinge lock mechanism that gives camera operators ultimate versatility. With the ability to be used with or without a spreader. The hinge lock allows flowtech® to be deployed as low as 26 cm / 10.2 in and as high as 157 cm / 61.8 in when used without a spreader. This effectively eliminates the need to bring a second set of baby legs to each shoot.

Performance tested
for extremes

Tested in the most punishing environments, flowtech® excels in sludge, sand and extreme temperatures. Tried in over 30,000 lab-testing cycles – in which the tripod is repeatedly deployed – and 1.5 million clamp operations on the test endurance rig, flowtech® surpasses Vinten’s stringent performance targets.


All flowtech® tripods can be used with a mid-level, a ground spreader or even without a spreader. The spreaders are available separately or as part of a flowtech® system. Mid-level spreaders are available as lightweight mid-level spreader 75 or as carbon fibre mid-level spreader 100 with 4 positions for very small footprint in narrow spaces or very stable set-up in uneven terrain. The ground spreader brings maximum stability to flat grounds. Operators can quickly adjust the tripod footprint by changing the spreader extension with a simple foot control.

“With so many moving parts on any given shoot it’s important to travel light and fast, so my gear has to be the last thing that should be slowing me down.”

Luke ThomasFreelance news and documentary cameraman

“On the job, this new tripod was absolutely perfect! I normally shoot handheld for portraits, but the speed and ease of use helped me get the shots in a fraction of the time of a normal tripod. It’s like nothing I’ve ever worked with before.”
