The 3 Legged Thing X4 Eric Evolution 2 Carbon Fiber 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 5.1". The removable leg when topped with the included column extension and the tripod's mounting plate, becomes a 79" monopod for gun-and-run scenarios.

The Eric's legs are constructed from 8-core carbon fiber while the center column is made from 10-core carbon fiber, substantially 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 19.7" for easy packing and comes with a soft case and strap for storage and transport. Note: this listing is for the tripod legs only.

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 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. With the legs fully spread you can shoot as low as 5.1".
Compact Package
The design of the Eric is such that the tripod, when folded, will fit into most luggage. The D rings on the bag allow for the bag to be connected to another bag or cart for easy transport.
