Flashpoint Flip-Lock Carbon Fiber Tripod

The three Flashpoint tripods offer all of the advantages of carbon fiber tripods—without the high prices.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 21, 2010

Adorama announces its new series of value-priced Flashpoint carbon fiber tripods. Featuring classic European styling, the three Flashpoint tripods offer all of the advantages of carbon fiber tripods—without the high prices.

The all-new Adorama Flip-Lock-designed leg release system uses a patented process that combines plastics from different polymers at an extremely high temperature to create a lock that will not fail. These non-slip flip locks will keep the legs locked into position; set-up and closing can now be accomplished quickly and effortlessly.

The Flashpoint Carbon Fiber material is an all-new material and is considered a major breakthrough. The process combines traditional carbon fiber with latest carbon fiber tube technique-bullet proof fiber complex (patented). The anti-resonance effect is increased by 60% over the old technology. The major benefit to this carbon fiber over all others is greater rigidity, which will prevent tube rupture. In other words, it’s a stronger tripod.

Each leg can be set at multiple angles and the center column can be turned into a low column for ground-level use. Each model includes a bubble level and has rubber pads on the bottom of the legs with retractable ground spikes for use on rugged terrain.

Leg friction can be adjusted to match the needs of the photographer.

Carbon fiber is more than 40% lighter than the same item made in aluminum.
