“This tripod is an excellent choice for a photo enthusiast. I called Adorama customer support and they were able to assist me in what I specifaly needed for my Nikon D90 and my Nikkor 18-200mm lens. The FPTPF1128 tripod, the FPTH2 tripod head and bag(both the tripod and head fit in the bag) are exactly what I needed and could not be more please with the quality..” – By chatsoon
“I bought two – one for my brother-in-law for christmas. We are both delighted with them. They are lightweight yet sturdy. I also bought the F3 ball head. Could have gotten away with an F2 I guess. The rubber feet base plus the retractable spike can handle any terrain.I had a lower quality tripod before. What a difference!” – By donnylad
First Tripod, Good Quality and support
“An all-purpose tripod. Excellent for scenary, night shots, and portraits. Included documentation is horrible, very confusing especially because this was my first tripod. Fortunately it is simple to use with twist to lock legs and stepwise height adjustment. Case is of good quality, but you’ll have to remove the tripod head if you have one.” – By Tony
I would recommend this tripod any time
“I am mostly a wildlife photographer, so I do alot of walking… several hours at a time. my pack is heavy enough, without having to drag a large heavy tripod around. The Flashpoint F-1128 Carbon Fiber Tripod, fills all my needs.. in a small lightweight, easy to manage package. It`s quick and easy to set up, and the two piece center column, is a wonderful feature. If you`re looking for a good all around tripod, this is it.” – By Geena
“I was going to buy a Gitzo Decided on the Flashpoint to save money. I’m not at all sorry. It is well made, sturdy and light. I bought a Manfroto pan head so that adds some weight. I haven’t owned it that long or used it that much so I can’t say how it holds up over the long run. But comes with a good warranty. Can’t go wrong for the money. It holds my Pentax K7 with a sigma 150-500mm zoom with no problem. I will use it to photograph stock car races, some nature photography and for portraits. I don’t feel I just paid for a name. A good value. I havent discovered any negatives yet.” – By DrD
Great for the Price
“I purchased this tripod for a month-long hut-to-hut in the Alps. The quality is not at at the level of Gitzo or Really Right Stuff, but the tripod is a steal for the price. At first glance, it is built along the same design as Gitzo, but at a fraction of the price. The tripod is sturdy enough to hold a Nikon D700 with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens attached. As I do with my much heavier Gitzo tripod and Really Right Stuff ball head, I plan to shoot in mirror up mode for increased sharpness. The case is very nice and accommodates the tripod with F-1 ball head attached.” – By Trekker Jim
Can’t complain especially for the price
“A Carbon Fiber tripod for under 150$, great bang for your buck. The construction feels fairly solid but cheapish. But hey look at the price ? Please read the instruction page that comes with the tripod. Looks like some one wrote the original in Chinese and ran it through an automated translator. Hilarity ensures. The case can take both the tripod + plus F-1 ball head, so that’s nice.” – By Ravi
Great little tripod
“I love this tripod! I was looking for a tripod that I could travel with when flying. This one will be just perfect. It is very light weight and folds down to fit in my luggage easily. It will accomodate my 28-135 Canon lens just fine. For anything larger you would need the next size, or a sturdier tripod. I am using this one as a second tripod, but I think I will probably reach for this one most every time I use one.” – By Teresa M. Moore
