Hybrid FlowPod Stabilizer/Tripod Combo for Cameras 1-7lbs

The VariZoom VZCROSSFIRE-FP Multimode Stabilizer and Tripod System (1-7 lb Cameras) includes the stabilizer with removable tripod and quick-release camera plate, carrying case, 2 stainless inline counterweights, 2 sliding stainless ring counterweights, microweights, and a balancing plate. You are provided with a hybrid combination of a FlowPod stabilizer and a tripod system that supports DSLR and HD video cameras.

Providing up to 6 different shooting modes, the VZCROSSFIRE-FP can be used as a fluid handheld stabilizer, rock-solid tripod, gliding low-mode tool, fixed low-angle mount, or full-stabilizer system. You can use the system in the tripod mode and adjust its height from 20" to 69" without having to switch between the stabilizer and tripod.

You can use the system for achieving floating stabilizer shots or stationary monopod shots via a uniquely designed handle and gimbal that can be locked inline or unlocked as a fluid gimbal. Aluminum and stainless steel based sturdy, compact construction of the tripod legs is complemented by a built-in leveling bubble.

Switching between the tripod and stabilizer modes is easy, and a detachable tripod system allows you to use the stabilizer in Lite mode enabling the tripod to be used as a separate docking stand. Detaching the tripod and using it as a balancing or docking stand enables you to use the system as a fixed low-angle, pan-capable mount allowing you to achieve video shooting with minimum ground clearance.

You can use the VZCROSSFIRE-FP system with Canon 5D Mark II, 7D, 1D Mark IV, and Rebel T2i in different configurations such as a tall tripod, stabilizer, low-angle stabilizer, and a low-angle fixed mount. The CrossFire FP system comes with a carry case.
