    Re: New FLM Tripod for LF/ULF

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who participated in this discussion, and to the 2 forum members who bought the Berlin tripod.
    We ended at 93%, but all the orders will be filled, and we'll be developing some good accessories in the process.
    Those will serve us for any other bowl-capable tripods we make in the future.
    On a personal note, I'm surprised that more LF shooters didn't (I know that some couldn't) buy the tripod. It was designed with LF/ULF specifically in mind.
    The latest reviewer used the words "solid" and "steady" about 20 times; the tripod weighs just under 5 pounds, and was at a killer price.
    Anyhow, I've already started thinking about our next tripod, so if you have any thoughts about tripod features, you can email or PM me.
    Thank you

    I wanted one, but my retirement income is limited and I just moved, which always costs way more than we plan.

    Good work!

    My problem is that you serve only NAFTA counties, and in Europe the Berlin it’s not available.

    Yes, that was clear when we started, and I knew it would hurt the crowdfunding.
    But the tripod is an initiative of FLM USA/Canada, and as such, we're not permitted to sell outside North America.
    I'd be happy to work with you if you should get a US or Canadian forwarding address in the future.
    Or you can wait for Germany to offer the tripod, I just don't know when or if they'll want to make the complete tripod in full production runs.
    Since I don't have their overhead, I can afford to make smaller production runs. I'm quite happy if I break even the first time around, because it lays some good groundwork, while the Indiegogo is a good gauge of general interest.
    Sorry I couldn't do much for you this time, I hope that changes in the near future.

    I knew from the first moment that this tripod is a FLM US/Canada initiative. If ever FLM Germany will come with such a model....

    Congratulations for the succes, its a great idea.

    Just see this topic and decide for one with the 75mm bowl. Quite amazing at 20" and bowl movement at 20 degrees look very fine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZWAxt-iPIk
    Not very tall but like me so 8x10 will be right at my eye level.
