As an award-winning destination wedding videographer that has built his reputation on delivering one-of-a-kind, cinematic short films for couples around the world, Ben Marlow knows that speed is vital to getting the best results. Luckily, this is exactly the kind of environment that the flowtech®75 tripod thrives in.
“I normally shoot handheld for portraits, but the speed and ease of flowtech® helped me get the shots in a fraction of the time of a normal tripod.”

For his latest project, Marlow flew to Bordeaux, France to shoot a wedding and since weddings are extremely fast-paced he needed substantial support with the right form factor to get the shots he needed. “For this shoot, in particular, I was flanking the sides of the audience with a FS5 and was repeatedly on the move. The problems were mainly logistical, so I needed the best support I could have in the lightest form,” explained Marlow.
“On the job, this new tripod was absolutely perfect! I normally shoot handheld for portraits, but the speed and ease of use helped me get the shots in a fraction of the time of a normal tripod. You don’t get a second chance with weddings and every aspect of the evening happens so quickly. We had to nail every shot as best as possible and with the new leg system, it was so much quicker to get around.”
The usability of the design really came into its own. It’s like nothing I’ve ever worked with before.”
