About the 3 Legged Thing X1.1

The 3 Legged Thing X1.1 Brian Evolution 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod System with AirHed 1 Ball Head is a stylish compact travel tripod that features a removable leg, leg-spreading and a reversible center column that allows for low angle or macro shooting down to 4.7". The removable leg when topped with the included 4" column extension and the tripod's mounting plate, becomes a 51.5" monopod for gun-and-run scenarios.

The X1.1 Brian's legs are constructed from 8-core carbon fiber while the center column is made from 10-core carbon fiber, substantially reducing the weight to only 2.9 lb, while providing the stability of heavier tripods and supporting cameras up to 17.6 lb. It folds down to just 16.5" for easy packing and comes with a soft case and strap for storage and transport.

The 3 Legged Thing AirHed 1 Magnesium Alloy Ball Head (Blue) is a stylish head for a DSLR or film camera that encourages precise adjustments and fast setup changes. Composed of an aircraft-grade T6061 magnesium alloy, the sturdy head supports loads up to 17.6 lb, so it's suitable for all cameras and most lenses.

The AH1 head features a robust knurled knob that operates the Arca-style quick-release clamp. Additional knurled knobs manipulate the ball head's pan lock and ball/tilt lock. The pan-lock knob features an inset tension control that affects the play of the ball's movement.

The included quick-release plate, also magnesium, is compatible with BlackRapid's R-Strap camera slings, by way of its FastenR-T1 camera screw. The 1/4"-20 camera screw's flip-up D-ring allows you to tighten it to your camera easily. This ring allows you to attach your camera to an R-Strap and quickly move it from around your neck or shoulder to the AirHed 1 without removing the sling.

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 17.6lbs
  • 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
  • Airhed 1: Double bubble on the rear of the quick-release assembly for precise leveling
  • Airhed 1: 90deg. slot for portrait orientation
