3 Legged Thing announce new affordable tripod and new Australian distributor
Fans of British-tripod company 3 Legged Thing rejoice: the company has a new affordable tripod, 'The Patti', and a new local distributor, Sydney's Blonde Robot.
With a maximum payload of 10kg, The Patti should comfortably support most smaller DSLRs and mirrorless setups. To keep the cost down, the tripod uses ABS plastic flip leg locks instead of twist lock systems, although the legs are still made from aircraft grade magnesium. Packed down the new model measures 45cm and it extends to a maximum height of 1.63m.
The Patti features a removable and reversible single section center column, allowing for low angled shots, and a minimum shooting height of just 11cm. The tripod is supplied with the company's AirHead Mini head, a simplified version of its AirHead ball head.
