    FLM Distributor in Canada

    Hi,
    Long-time lurker, first-time poster (I think).

    I'd like to introduce myself, my name is Ari, I've been a commercial/documentary photographer for about 15 years.
    I sometimes shoot digital, but these days I mostly shoot 4x5 and, more recently, 8x10.

    Starting Monday, February 25, I will be responsible for distribution of FLM products in Canada, and on a lesser scale, limited direct sales of our ball heads to individuals in Canada and the US.

    FLM is a family-owned and operated company in Germany, and we make tripods, ball heads, leveling bases, pano bases, and QR systems to suit every format.
    The company holds numerous patents on some very interesting and unique features of our products.

    The feature that attracted me right away to FLM is the tilt lock function, found on all our pro ball heads, the FT series ("T" for tilt).
    Using the tilt lock, the ball head will move only in 2-D, forward and back, with no side-to-side movement.
    This is something that I hope will attract those who firmly believe (like I did) that a 3-way pan-tilt head is the only way to go, especially with large format.

    Have a look at our website, www . flmcanada . com and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail at ari @ flmcanada . com (spaces are for the spammers).
    We also have a Facebook page, and I will be posting instructional videos beginning this week-end.

    If you are looking for a quality, precision-made photo support system, please get in touch; I can offer APUG members a 15% discount on a new ball head while I still have supplies.

    Thanks, and if you have questions or comments, please post them here as well.

    Just a note to let everyone know I am up and running now.
    The website has been updated, more updates to follow as stock arrives, and as photos are taken.
    I have also uploaded a video showing how the FT ball heads work, I hope it shows everything clearly.

    Please let me know if anything on the website is confusing, difficult to see or read, etc etc.

    Thank you.

    Website photos have been updated, showing much greater detail and various angles of many of our products.
    More videos to come in the next day or so.

    Thanks

    Welcome to APUG, Ari. Thanks for supporting one of the best sites on the internet - with your advertising dollars as well as your tripods.

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Why thank you very much.
    I'm very happy to be here, as both a photographer and promoter of quality tripods and ball heads.

    Hi again,
    The website has been further updated with fresh photos of some of our tripods.
    I hope the new photos give a better feeling of the tripods' build quality and features.

    Thanks!
