3 Legged Thing Leo overview

  • 1Description

The Equinox Leo Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod from 3 Legged Thing has five leg sections that can extend to a maximum height of 51.5" and also go as low as 4.75". At the 23° angle leg spread, which is considered a normal stance, the tripod can support a maximum of 66.1 lb. (The legs have two additional wider stances, and these will support less weight.) The twist locks' Para-lock feature works by restricting the opening movement of the friction lock, preventing you from accidentally unscrewing the lock until the leg section detaches.

The two-section center column can be inverted, enabling the user to raise the height of the tripod, while physically lowering the camera to the desired height. This is a helpful feature for doing macro photography. Fold the legs 180° in reverse to make the tripod more compact for travel and storage.

All 3 Legged Thing tripods have a detachable leg with standard 3/8"-16 threads at both ends. The Tri-mount plate and threaded bolt can be unscrewed and removed from the top of the center column, then screwed directly onto the leg. The detachable leg can be used as a monopod, microphone boom, or selfie stick.

3-Position Leg-Angle Stops
The legs spread to three angles of 23°, 55°, and 80°.
Para-Lock Leg Locking System
Para-locks work by restricting the opening movement of the friction lock, preventing you from accidentally unscrewing the lock until the leg section detaches.
Reversible Folding Legs
Fold legs 180° in reverse for compactness and storage.
2-Section Center Column
Center column can be inverted, enabling the user to raise the height of the tripod, while physically lowering the camera to the desired height.
Removable Leg
All 3 Legged Thing tripods have a detachable leg with standard 3/8"-16 female threads, which can be used as a monopod, microphone boom, and selfie stick.

    3 Legged Thing Leo reviews

    Equinox Leo Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing! I travel often and I hate to check bags, so I am limited to what will fit in my carry on bag or backpack. After not measuring, I bought another tripod only to find out it doesn't fit. So I looked for something lightweight, small, and could hold my Sony Mirrorless camera. This tripod doesn't disappoint. It is an amazing 3 legged thing ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally worth it The tripod is small and portable enough to carry around while traveling. The weight is not bad; it's light enough to be easily carried around, but sturdy enough to make it worth your while. The price is a little higher than I would like, but I guess you get what you pay for.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked pretty well For a travel tripod it worked pretty well, but not the most stable.� Any wind and it needs to be all the way done to get the shot.� But then again I am use to Really Right Stuff. Had the RRS BH-55 head on the tripod since I expected it to come with a head.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than I expected but not "Perfect" (Nothing ever is!) I have to say I was surprised at how sturdy the tripod is for it's size and weight. On the other hand it's somewhat bulkier than I'd like. Length collapsed is perfect, Length extended is - well somewhat short (I'm 6'2") but that's a compromise I'm willing to make to get a length that will fit in my carry on bag and camera bag. Given that I expect to� use it primarily with a Mamiya TLR, height will be fine - if I wanted to use it with a DSLR or my Mamiya 7, I'd struggle a bit with the height. Only "complaint" as I mentioned is the bulkiness. I think the twist locks could be made a bit thinner and honestly for a travel tripod the rated camera weight is a bit unrealistic - not sure many people would load a travel tripod to 66 pounds. If it were designed to support say 15 - 20 pounds I think it could be thinned down a fair amount and still be perfectly usable as a travel 'pod. Price is quite attractive. All in all I'd rate the tripod slightly lower than my CF Gitzo Traveler, but at 1/3 the price of the Gitzo I think it's a real bargain. And the Gitzo is too long for my camera bag!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its very sturdy and small at the same time! Best companion on a Kauai trip!
