The 3 Legged Thing X1.1a Adrian Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod is a stylish compact travel tripod that features a removable leg, leg-spreading, and a reversible center column that allows for low angle or macro shooting down to 4.7". The removable leg, when topped with the included 4" column extension and the tripod's mounting plate, becomes a 51.6" monopod for gun-and-run scenarios.

The X1.1a Adrian's legs are constructed from lightweight Magnesium alloy reducing the weight to only 3.0 lb, while providing the stability of heavier tripods and supporting cameras up to 17.6 lb. It folds down to just 16.5" for easy packing and comes with a soft case and strap for storage and transport.

Unique Center Column
The unique triple-section ten-core carbon fiber center column provide extra strength allowing the tripod to support cameras up to 17.6 lb.
Tri-mono Mode
Extending the center column with the legs retracted and spread to 55 degrees is known as Tri-mono mode. This is a much better alternative to putting expensive gear like long lenses on the ground and keeps them at the ready while shooting with other camera/lens setups in situations like sports events.
Inverted Column
With the column inverted and the legs fully extended, the user is able to lower the camera to the floor for macro photography. With the legs fully spread you can shoot as low as 4.7". Using an optional adapter, you can mount a laptop or iPad at the collar of the tripod to monitor your images while shooting tethered.
Extra Stability
You can completely remove the column, and mount the head or even your camera directly to the tripod collar topped with the camera platform, providing the rigidity required for longer exposures.
Compact Package
The design of the Adrian is such that the tripod, when folded, will easily fit into most hand luggage. The D rings on the bag allow for the bag to be connected to another bag or cart for easy transport.

    Comments about 3 Legged Thing X1.1a Adrian Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod:

    It's a 5 star right now. Will it be six month from now? I don't know. There are a lot of configurations. This is NOT a lightweight tripod. It comes with a REALLY good case. I really need more time to evaluate! I got it without the ball head.
