3 Legged Thing X1.1 Features

  • Unique Center Column: The unique triple-section ten-core carbon fiber center column provide extra strength allowing the tripod to support cameras up to 17.6 lb
  • Tri-mono Mode: Extending the center column with the legs retracted & spread to 55deg.is known as Tri-mono mode. This is a much better alternative to putting expensive gear like long lenses on the ground & keeps them at the ready while shooting with other camera/lens in situations like sports events
  • Inverted Column: With the column inverted and the legs fully extended, the user is able to lower the camera to the floor for macro photography. With an optional adapter, you can mount a laptop or iPad at the collar of the tripod to monitor your images while shooting tethered
  • Extra Stability: You can completely remove the column and mount the head or even your camera directly to the tripod collar topped with the camera platform, providing the rigidity required for longer exposures. With the legs fully spread you can shoot as low as 4.7"
  • Compact Package: The design of the Brian is such that the tripod, when folded, will easily fit into most hand luggage. The D rings on the bag allow for the bag to be connected to another bag or cart for easy transport
