The 3 Legged Thing X1.1a Adrian 5-Section Aluminum Alloy Tripod with AirHed 1 Ball Head (Blue) is a stylish and extremely compact travel tripod system that features a removable, reversible center column. With the ball head attached to the tripod, this column helps the system extend to a maximum height of 59.8" and retract to a very small 20.5" folded length. Fitting in any airline carry-on bag, the X1.1a Adrian system is a supremely versatile professional camera support.

The X1.1a Adrian's legs are composed of aircraft-grade T6061 aluminum alloy for a supreme balance of light weight, sturdiness, and durability – the tripod system weighs just 3.9 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 X1.1a Adrian's leg angles can be set independently to support stable shooting on uneven surfaces.

The AirHed 1 is a sturdy aluminum 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.
