I was lucky enough to get a chance to look around the Vinten factory in deepest Suffolk so I could pick up a new Vinten Vision AS head to test out for a few days.
My good friend Tom Guilmette was promoting them at NAB this year and I had a look at them then, but this was first real “hands on” with them.
They come in 4 “flavours” for different payloads…
Vision 3AS 2.0 – 5.0 kg / 4.4 – 11 lbs
Vision 5AS 4.5 – 10.5 kg / 9.9 – 23.1 lbs
Vision 8AS 5.5 – 12.5 kg / 12.1 – 27.6 lbs
Vision 10AS 6.5 – 14.5 kg / 14.3 – 32 lbs
I personally own a few tripods. A Sachtler 18p, Miller DS20 solo, Cartoni Focus and a Vinten Vision 11 Fibertec. I love my Vinten and Miller tripods very much. The miller is a bit too light for the EX3 with adaptor but is perfect for the 5dmk2…The Vinten is my “full time” tripod. I use is 90% of the time. They are so robust, so well made.
The new Vision AS series brings a number of new features and a complete re-design. First off…all black to match the sticks (no new sticks as yet). A new quick release system, an amazing perfect balance system (do check out the second video for a brief explanation of it), and a number of lovely touches. The head itself is as smooth as you could want…
I am thoroughly impressed with the new heads. They still seem pretty well made and the new features are a joy, anyway…enough writing! Watch the video to learn more!! Made for CVP.TV
