Ellie is the next evolution of universal L-Bracket from 3 Legged Thing, following on from the huge success of 3LT’s QR11-L. Ellie brings increased compatibility with a wider range of mirrorless and DSLR cameras, and its innovative design offers users advanced functionality.


Ellie Universal L Bracket

Developed and tested over a year, Ellie is built on the foundations of the QR11, combined with emails and comments from customers since the QR11 launched in 2017.

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, with two stainless steel bars in the base. The rear edge of the base is sloped to better enable screen access.

Ellie’s vertical aspect has an opening in 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 the two adjustable stainless steel sliding bars.

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 ¼”-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 degrees position.

Made from aerospace grade magnesium alloy, Ellie will be available in two anodized finishes – Copper (orange) and Metallic Slate Grey, with a suggested retail price of £64.99 / $69.99.

Ellie will be on display at 3 Legged Thing’s stand no. E71 at The Photography Show, Birmingham NEC, 16-19th March 2019.

Seems a convoluted way of setting up the camera on a tripod and I wonder just how practical & stable it is.

Has anyone tried it ?
