3LT Ellie

Following on from the huge success of the L-Bracket, 3 Legged Thing's QR11-L, 3 Legged Thing has announced that the Ellie L-Bracket will be joining the range.

For those who haven't used one, L-Brackets are primarily used to switch from landscape to portrait on a tripod, whilst maintaining a similar sensor position and focal plane and 3 Legged Things' latest version is compatible with mirrorless as well as DSLR cameras

Compatible with standard Arca-Swiss clamps, Ellie’s design features 2 different screw mount slots in the base, allowing users to position the L-Bracket in the optimal position for their camera. The length of the bracket base can be adjusted thanks to two rigid stainless steel sliding bars which are then fixed into position by the user. The rear edge of the base is sloped to better enable screen access.
 
Ellie’s vertical aspect has an opening on one side, allowing users with L-shaped cable pins to connect accessories to their cameras more easily. Thanks to the dual Arca-Swiss profile and identical mount-ends, this opening can be placed in one of four positions, by inverting or reversing the vertical aspect, which is secured to the base via two adjustable stainless steel rods. A handy mini tool with two sizes of Allen key to adjust the sliding bars, and the vertical aspect, is also supplied with Ellie.

Both ends of the vertical aspect house two quarter-inch 20 threads, allowing users to attach accessories, including microphones or mounting arms, to the bracket. The base of the bracket also features a strap attachment slot. Ellie’s base plate is beautifully contoured so that it can also be used separately as a quick release plate without the upright.
 
Adding a different type of functionality, Ellie’s vertical aspect can also be mounted downwards from the plate, effectively creating a rocker head when used with the tripod head adjusted into the 90" position.

Specifications:

  • Available in two colours - Copper (orange) and Metallic Slate Grey
  • Horizontal Aspect Length: 95 mm - 128 mm / 3.74 “ - 5.04 "
  • Horizontal Aspect Width: 38 mm / 1.5 “
  • Vertical Aspect Height: 85 mm / 3.35 “
  • Vertical Aspect Width: 38 mm / 1.5 “
  • Weight: 96 g / 0.21 lb
  • Compatibility – Standard Arca-Swiss

3LT Founder & CEO Danny Lenihan commented: "Ellie is the culmination of a year’s development and testing, and is built on the foundations of QR11 and hundreds of comments and emails from customers since the QR11 launched in 2017. It’s been a fantastic challenge for myself and the team, with more than a few hiccups in the process, but I’m delighted to be introducing what we believe is a new chapter in L-Bracket innovation."

Ellie is available to pre-order now via the 3 Legged Thing website and the below video has more details on the new design.
