It is with great pride and satisfaction that I see my name associated with the FLM family, I hope I can give good name to the "roll" of fantastic photographers who collaborate with the brand.
For the more distracted this is a German brand of Tripods and ball-heads, a family business (and how I like it ... an example of this is the LEE Filters), which has its facilities in Germany and it is there that is developed and produced all the products.
Why do I like family businesses? do not get me wrong but it's just my opinion ... the attention to detail, customer service ... for me are very important, I do not mean by this that other brands with bigger business that do not have these requisites ... but ... it is just my simple opinion. . .
Continuing ... I´m not going to talk about all the FLM products, features, history etc. But I advise to visit the web site of the FLM, in there you will found all the information regarding to the products, brands, etc.
So... I will talk about the kit I use, my kit consists on:
Tripod FLM CP30 - L3 PRO
Tripod Ball-head FLM FLM CB 43 FTR
QRB 70 Clamp
QRP Plate 70
All pieces are true work of art from the tripod, tripod ball-head to the quick release to plate the quality of finishing the attention to detail is superb, and the performance? Well ... TOP.
The Tripod . . .
The tripod consists of 8 carbon layers which gives it an excellent rigidity, have the option to remove the center column, stretch and close and open the legs is excellent and at the bottom of the legs with a small turn reveals a spike which gives for all types of terrain, with a lightness of 1.75 kg at a height of 145 cm with no column with column 173cm fully extended and 15kg load, and here for us ... the "looks" is just amazing !!!!!!
If the tripod is great the tripod Ball-head is a piece of jewelry, the finishes, the characteristics, design ... I do not even know what to say ... has divinal details !!!! To have just an idea of one of the characteristics ... has a small button you press and it gives small clicks from 15 to 15 degrees, there is no excuse for miscalculated panoramic photography ... this is just a small example and believe me there are more, many more ...
To attest the quality of the products FLM gives "only" a guarantee of 10 YEARS!!!!!
Yes. . . for at least 10 years do not have to worry about tripods, tripod heads ... think of it as a long-term contract. . . :)
To celebrate this union that I am truly proud I left you one more picture of my little visit to São Miguel, Azores.
I hope you enjoy it like I did!!!!
