The 3 Legged Thing X1.1 Brian 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod with AirHed 1 Ball Head (Black) is a stylish and extremely compact travel tripod system that features a removable, reversible 3-section center column. With the ball head attached to the tripod, this column helps the system extend to a maximum height of 80.3" and retract to a very small 16.53" folded length. Fitting in any airline carry-on bag, the X1.1 Brian system is a supremely versatile professional camera support.

The X1.1 Brian's legs are composed of 8-core carbon fiber for the ultimate in lightweight sturdiness – the tripod system weighs just 3.8 lb and supports up to 17.6 lb, to accommodate any DSLR with most lenses.

One of the tripod legs unscrews to become a monopod. The center column is both removable and reversible to accommodate shooting from the lowest of low angles.

Leg angles can be set at three different positions; at their widest and with the column removed, the AirHed 1's camera plate sits only 8.8" from the ground (The camera can also be attached directly to the tripod for a minimum height of 4.9".). The X1.1 Brian's leg angles can be set independently to support stable shooting on uneven surfaces.

The AirHed 1 is a sturdy magnesium alloy ball head that features separate control knobs for pan lock, tilt lock, and Arca-style clamping of the included quick-release plate. There's also a tension control built into the tilt-lock knob.

The plate is compatible with BlackRapid's R-Strap camera slings, by way of its FastenR-T1 camera screw. The 1/4"-20 camera screw's flip-up D-ring allows you to tighten it to your camera easily. This ring allows you to attach your camera to an R-Strap and quickly move it from around your neck or shoulder to the AH1 head without removing the sling.

Includes hook for hanging a counterweight from the center column, for extra stability in windy conditions
