What has 3 legs, acts like a transformer, and is easy on the wallet? It’s name is Brian

OK, seriously.
We are talking about a tripod. It is the Brian model. Lightweight, carbon fiber legs, one leg comes off to use as a monopod, and lots more. And we did bring it to your attention before.
But what we want to point out here is the company that brings us this tripod line, plus a lot more products for the photographer.
When we first met Danny Lenihan, it was outside the ThinkTank Photo booth at PhotoPlus Expo a couple of years ago.
In his hands was a prototype tripod: compact, lightweight versatile. And came in a sweet case.
The passion in this guys presentation of his new baby/product was palpable.
So the next year we had in our hands, the production model of Brian.
Wow.
Impressed, did all it should and promised. There were a couple minor production issues, but we knew they’d get worked out.
This past Oct, when we saw the latest iteration of the full 3LeggedThing tripod line, there was no doubt they had arrived.
The tooling on all of the parts was as clean as any gear we’ve used. We tried a new ball head that exceeded all of our expectations.
And the Brian just keeps getting better.

We use this tripod, and applaud the company for many reasons.
In a very tough marketplace, to see a new company enter, create, continually improve, and give consistent great value, warms our photographic heart.
There are a lot of products that come to play, but don’t have the heart. Or the design.

3 Legged Thing comes fully loaded with great product. And keeps on keeping on. Check out the rest of their line of products.
