3 legged thing legends

3 Legged Thing have announced Legends - their first range of Hybrid tripods, designed for both photo and video use and featuring a levelling-base system. 

There are two initial tripods in the range - named Mike and Jay. Both feature 3 detachable legs, making for maximum versatility and allowing one to be used as a monopod, while the others can be used as boom arms in video production. 

Mike is a full size carbon fibre tripod, designed for incredible stability in any conditions, whilst Jay features shorter carbon fibre legs with more sections, creating a travel-friendly video option, the first of its kind.

Taking its inspiration from skateboarder, musician, photographer and 3LT Pro Team member, Ray Barbee, the ethos of the Legends range is innovation, outstanding performance, and creativity.

With the legs removed the tripod can be used on table-tops or at ground level by joining a set of 3LT’s tripod footwear to the leg hinges. This enables both Mike and Jay to be used for macro work, bringing photographers a varied range of perspectives from which to shoot. With the addition of 3LT footwear, the levelling base can also be used as a foot stabiliser for a monopod leg, adding an extra level of versatility to the products.
The tripods are constructed from 8 layers of 100% pure Japanese carbon fibre, and aerospace-grade, anodised magnesium alloy, providing incredible strength, rigidity, and durability.

The new tripods have 3 Legged Thing’s new Rapid Latch, a hardwearing anodised mag-alloy latch with auto-engage lock, which is used to open and position the legs. Each of the legs can be used at three optimal angles creating different shooting heights, and can be positioned independently for use on uneven ground.


Pricing and availability 

The first two tripods in the Legends range are available for pre-order starting today, and are expected to be in stores in early December. Mike’s suggested retail price is £499.99 / $549.99 for tripod only, with tripod kit including AirHed Cine SRP of £729.99 / $849.99. Jay’s SRP is £449.99 / $479.99 tripod only, and £679.99 / $779.99 for Jay Kit with AirHed Cine. The AirHed Cine is available separately with a suggested retail price of £299.99 / $349.99.
