They may not rival the British Invasion of rock music of the 1960s, but the young, energetic and creative people at 3 Legged Thing are conquering many digital photographers with their new Rock Legend Range of tripods, [amazon_link id="B000VZS2EU" target="_blank" ]monopod[/amazon_link]s and [amazon_link id="B00021XPYK" target="_blank" ]multipods[/amazon_link]. The first tripod in the new series is named for the first among all guitar gods, Eric Clapton.
As one would expect from a guitar god, the X4 Eric Tripod delivers a memorable performance every time its deployed for DSLRs, HDV cameras and Micro 4/3 cameras. Rated to support as much as 17.6 pounds (8kg), the X4 Eric is designed and built for superior stability.
What makes the X4 Eric Tripod wail is the strength of its four-section legs built with 3 Legged Thing’s new 26mm, 8 Core Stealth Carbon Fiber™ and the highest aircraft-grade T6061 magnesium alloy. Just like “Slow Hands” caresses the strings of a guitar, this 3LT tripod is a smooth operator. It also has the muscle to overcome the horizontal strain as well as the twisting tendency of a tripod with the weight of a camera/lens.
