The 190XPRO3 has aluminum construction, and extends to 53". The tripod features a Quick Power Lock design that quickly locks the legs into place at four different angles. There's an easy-lock thread designed for sturdy support for flip arms, and a horizontal column that's designed for heavier gear and rotates a full 360º. The tripod is easy to carry with motorcycle-style grips.
Perhaps the first thing you notice about 3 Legged Thing's tripods are their smooth carbon and colorful accents. But their versatility is just as nice. A single tripod can be used for macro photography just inches from the ground, or for reaching new heights and getting that wide shot from above.

Every photographer, both amateur and professional, has at one time or another rested their camera on a rock, a crumpled coat, or some other handy object when they didn’t have access to a more traditional camera support. You might need to do this when you want to get into a photo yourself or when you can’t hold a camera steady in low light. Many tripods are too big and heavy to carry with you at all times. But here we have a collection of tabletop and miniature tripods that are so small and compact you can keep one with you every day. They also make great gifts for photographers who seem to have everything else.
In our last newsletter we covered a number of products designed to lighten your load when heading out the door with photo gear in tow. Based on your feedback (quite positive, thank you!), we decided to poke around the store a bit further to see what other items we carry for light & compact photo trekking.
