This bronze and blue 3 Legged Thing Tripod Kit includes a bronze Albert 2.0 Tripod and blue AirHed Pro Ball Head. Together, the tripod and ball head form a support system that features three detachable legs and a removable centre column. With the ball head, each leg can be configured as a monopod with up to a 134 cm height or can be combined with the centre column to form a monopod with up to 198 cm in height.
Tripod heads such as the AirHed Pro Ball Head that are compatible with a 3/8"-16 mount can be connected to the top of the Albert 2.0 Tripod. When combined and configured as a tripod, the Albert 2.0 Tripod and AirHed Pro Ball Head support up to 30 kg and measures 43 cm when folded. Each of the tripod's 5-section legs features an independent spread, a 3-position angle lock, and twist locks for rapid deployment. The Albert 2.0 Tripod and AirHed Pro Ball Head can be set at a minimum height of 19 cm when the tripod's 3-section, push-and-pull rapid centre column is removed. Together, the three legs can be extended to obtain a maximum height of 132 or 190 cm with the centre column fully raised along with the ball head. Each of the carbon fibre legs includes a removable rubber foot, which can be substituted with separately available spiked feet to further enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces, including soft or uneven soil.
For added versatility, the Albert 2.0 Tripod's three removable legs can be substituted with separately available 3 Legged Thing footwear accessories for use as a tabletop tripod. A carry bag with a strap is provided for storage and transport.
The AirHed Pro Ball Head is an Arca-type ball head with a load capacity of 40 kg and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the included QR-OCTA Quick Release Plate. The quick-release plate can be attached or removed from the integrated clamp located at the top of the head's ball-and-socket joint by tightening or loosening the clamp's knurled, locking knob. Dual retaining screws are included for use along the underside of the plate. These screws prevent the plate from accidentally sliding off the ball head when the clamp is opened. The quick-release plate features a rubberized, non-slip platform while a built-in bubble level along the edge of the clamp opposite the clamp's locking knob accommodates landscape orientations.
By loosening the ball head's primary locking knob, the head's ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swivelled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. Under the primary locking knob is a secondary locking knob, which controls the ability to rotate the head 360°.
