3LT releases new tripod and mounting platform
Cult camera accessory brand 3 Legged Thing has updated its Patti tripod line and introduced a new and improved camera mounting platform.
3LT's new Patti 2.0 brings a variety of updates to the company's entry-level tripod to bring it into line with the Punks 2.0 range. Patti 2.0, named after musician Patti Smith, now comes with a detachable leg, enabling photographers to create a monopod by joining the leg to the centre column.
The central canopy boasts an integral 1/4"-20 accessory attachment thread. To match the styling of other tripods in the Punks 2.0 range, Patti 2.0 also features a chunky column lock that combines knurling and rubber for optimum grip, and the flip locks have been refined with a textured surface.
Patti 2.0 is available in 'Darkness matte black' and signature 'ocean blue' colourways, each priced at $273.
In addition, 3LT has also launched the LevelHed, a new raised mounting platform for improved compatibility with heads and clamps, and a smooth rotating bubble level for better visibility and usability.
According to 3LT, the LevelHed reduces set-up times and increases the accuracy and precision of levelling - making it ideal for landscapes, panoramas, and architectural photography.
Formed from anodised aerospace-grade magnesium alloy, the LevelHed tool allows users to achieve a level horizon without having to adjust their tripod’s leg positions, on even the most challenging terrain.
The LevelHed is available in sleek Darkness matte black and a metallic slate grey colourway. It'll set you back $263.
