3 Legged Thing X4a Features

  • Tripod: Structural Integrity - Constructed of Stealth Magnesium Alloy, the 26 mm (upper section diameter) legs offer excellent lateral and torsional strength
  • Tripod: Friction Locks - Evo 2 Friction Locks with safety double break-point and easy-grip rubbers
  • Tripod: Durable Finish - Retoned matte black anodizing and triple machined magnesium alloy parts for better durability and smoother finish
  • Tripod: 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
  • Tripod: Tri-mono Mode - Extending the center column with the legs retracted and spread to known as Tri-mono mode. This is a much better alternative to putting expensive gear like long lenses on the ground and keeps them at the ready while shooting with other camera/lens in situations
  • Tripod: Extra Stability - Re-engineered leg mechanisms, for greater stability, smoother and easier use. 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
  • Ball Head: Double bubble on the rear of the quick-release assembly for precise leveling
  • Ball Head: 90deg. slot for portrait orientation
