That "flat" model can be found in the big stores here in Japan... It certainly looks interesting and I fiddled around with one for a few minutes BUT I personally don't like the idea of not being able to adjust the leg "angle" individually without a sacrifice in stability - although you can adjust the lengths as per normal...

That being said - as a travel type tripod - it would certainly be nice and take up a lot less space inside checked luggage or even in a carry on for that matter... I would only own one strictly for travel considerations and even then I would try to find a way for a "traditional" tripod to work first...

Nice carbon though ( 8x ) and good with resonance - I own this one ( without the center column ala Systematic ) and it's very stable...
