3 Legged Thing WINSTONKITGREY overview

  • 1Description

The Eclipse Winston Carbon Fiber Tripod with AirHed 360 Ball Head from 3 Legged Thing is an updated variant of the original Winston tripod kit. Identical in nearly every way, the Eclipse series only differs from the Equinox through the use of Gunmetal Gray colored fittings instead of the classic blue and bronze.

The Eclipse Winston kit features three leg sections that can extend to a maximum height of 76.9" and also go as low as 10.6". At the 23° angle leg spread, which is considered a normal stance, the tripod can support a maximum of 88.2 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.

Fold the legs 180° in reverse to make the tripod more compact for travel and storage. The ball head offers separate ball and pan locks, as well as a lock for the plate. An Arca-type compatible quick release plate with a 1/4"-20 camera screw is included with the head.

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.
Arca-Type Ball Head
Ball head offers separate ball and pan locks and includes Arca-type compatible quick release plate.

    3 Legged Thing WINSTONKITGREY reviews

    Eclipse Winston Carbon Fiber Tripod with AirHed 360 Ball Head (Gunmetal Gray) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent tripod Received about 2 weeks, it's taller than expected, but was looking to a tall tripod. Wt. is manageable, but this is not a trekking pod unless you good at humping gear. Tall enough that I removed the center post and mounted head to tripod and it still above 6'; it's extremely sturdy with a 5D and a/70-200 lens, conditions were 10Kt winds. Shoots came out perfect. no shake at all. I am very pleased with this product only issue I thought it was made in the UK, but surprise MADE IN CHINA. Also dealing with BH flawless.....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Lightweight everyday tripod I own a super heavy duty Vanguard CF tripod with geared center column. I needed something lighter for everyday use since even though it was CF it was still super huge and cumbersome. Bought the 3 legged to see if it could compete with Gitzo at a cheaper price. It's close. I still think Gitzo makes the best tripods but they're at the top of the category for price. This 3 legged guy works well and has smooth legs when extending and collapsing. It's been a pleasure using it these past few weeks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice tripod This tripod hit two hot-buttons for me: 1 - it's light weight. 2 - it's tall without pulling up the extension tube. I'm tall at 5' 8 and this tripod, without the extension raised, puts the camera well above my eye-level. I'll never have to use the extension with all the wobbling that introduces. I do have to reduce the leg length to get the camera down to my height. Even removing the extension tube and screwing the head onto the tripod top, it's still a little above me. Since the tube offers one of the shoulder strap connections, I put it back on. A 6' 1 man I know has it hit just about right for him. And, the head - that was a little extra I didn't expect. With a full frame camera and a 150-600 lens, it's still stable. Very nice for a ball-head. It comes with a nice bag, not the flimsy canvas one I would have expected. At this price point, I don't think one can find better right now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a very good tripod/head I've only had it for a week now, but have done four or five shoots, two a night. Looking forward to the time when it loosens up just a touch. Over all the quality is good, but not the most convenient to set up and adjust. In particular, the bubble levels are useless in the field, but easily fixed with hot shoe bubble. Again, there are better, but this is hard to beat for the price.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Tripod Look Elsewhere This review is for the Steve tripod which this model replaced. I new that I was taking a chance with 3LT not being the most popular brand and not having as much documentation on the quality level of their products, but it had alot of the features I wanted and it seemed well thought out. It was also what I thought was a reasonable price, so I took the risk. I bought this tripod less than a year ago and have been disappointed ever since. right out of the box the legs were really loose, to the point were I could not pick up the tripod and move it over an inch or two without the legs losing their position. no problem I thought, someone forgot to torque the pivot bolts down. I got some loctite and torqued them down a bit harder. Every few weeks they would work themselves loose again and now I have the bolts so tight that I fear I am going to strip them out. The problem is the manufacturing tolerances and poor bushings, not with the bolts being torqued correctly. On to the head. at first it was sticky and hard to adjust. I figured it was just needing to be broken in, well almost a year later it is still sticky and impossible to make micro adjustments without re composing the whole frame. Also the screw that fastens the camera mount to the ball head comes loose on the regular, introducing slop to the tripod head. I now carry a tool kit with me wherever I go which negates the benefit of owning a lightweight tripod a bit. On to the legs. The twist locks seemed good at first but they quickly wore out and do not turn as much as they need to to unlock the legs at times. Cold weather seems to make it worse. I have had numerous shoots ruined because I was fiddling around trying to get this tripod to do basic tasks. Less than a year later I am shopping around for a replacement which negates the reasonable price. Not at all happy.
