    Hi everyone,
    FLM has announced a new tripod, and just like the wildly successful CP26-Travel, the new tripod will be introduced to the world on Indiegogo.
    It's going to be bowl-capable, use 10 layers of carbon fibre, and of course carry FLM's standard 10-year warranty.
    I'll update with more information as I get it, but the tripod will be available for pre-order as soon as Saturday October 21.
    Thank you!

    The new tripod is called the Berlin 38.4, here are some specs:

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    I just wanted to address a question that came up privately about the bowl system.
    The Berlin will accept your existing bowl accessories, as long as they conform to a standard dovetail (most do) and are 75mm or 100mm size.
    For testing until our own bowls are made, I've been using a Gitzo bowl adapter with a Manfrotto 75mm leveling bowl; fits like a glove.
    Here's a shot of the rig I just described supporting a Sinar 8x10:

    After a week we're already 40% of the way there.
    I'd love to see someone from APUG get one of these, so please give it some serious thought.
    Thanks!

    Ladies and Gents,
    A gentle reminder that this project wraps up this Friday, December 1 at 11:59pm PST.
    We're 77% funded, and even if we don't meet our goal, everyone who orders a tripod will get one.
    If you use gimbal heads, big heavy lenses, or shoot MFDB/large format, this is one of the best investments you could make.
    Thanks for looking!
