  • 1Description

The 3 Legged Thing X1.1 Brian 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Leggs is a stylish and extremely compact travel tripod system that features a removable, reversible 3-section center column. With the ball head attached to the tripod, this column helps the system extend to a maximum height of 80.3" and retract to a very small 16.53" folded length. Fitting in any airline carry-on bag, the X1.1 Brian system is a supremely versatile professional camera support.

The X1.1 Brian's legs are composed of 8-core carbon fiber for the ultimate in lightweight sturdiness – the tripod system weighs just 3.8 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 X1.1 Brian's leg angles can be set independently to support stable shooting on uneven surfaces.

The AirHed 1 is a sturdy magnesium 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.

Titanium mounting plate with grub screw locators to bolt on a head
Includes hook for hanging a counterweight from the center column, for extra stability in windy conditions
The X1.1 Brian's rubber feet are removable (spiked feet are available separately)
Twist locks for leg stages
Bubble level on chassis, and two on head
