3 Legged Thing’s Albert is the world’s most versatile travel tripod system. With modular technology and adaptable configuration, Albert proves to be the perfect companion for a wide range of uses, and for photographers of all walks of life. Small enough to fit in your hand luggage, Albert is easy to carry anywhere. Light enough for long hikes, but heavy duty enough for almost any camera and lens configuration, Albert’s award winning modular design makes him the must-have tripod for all photographers.
Albert is meticulously crafted from 3LT’s own 100% Pure Stealth Carbon Fibre. 8 layers of tightly woven carbon, uniquely constructed without gimmicks or patterns for optimum weight to strength ratio. Furnishings precision milled from aircraft-grade Magnesium Alloy.
Albert’s unique, modular, triple-sectioned, 100% Pure, Carbon-Fibre centre column enables this incredible tripod to extend from almost floor level to well over 180cm, giving Albert the highest working range of any tripod in the world.
3 Legged Thing’s unique parallel locking system prevents accidental disassembly, and provides further stability and better grip. It also makes maintenance and general upkeep simple.
3 Legged Thing’s unique, modular technology, enables users to utilize infinite configurations. The possibilities are extraordinary. Here are just a few of Albert’s modular functions:
Light Stand Mode
Albert is tall enough to use as a light stand, for both strobes and off camera flash. At this height, Albert also makes a useful stabilized Monopod (Tri-Mono mode).
The unique triple-sectioned centre column can be inverted, enabling users to raise the canopy height, whilst still lowering the camera to the floor. This gives unprecedented access to the camera controls, for optimum workflow.
As with all 3 Legged Thing tripods, Albert has a detachable leg, with standard 3/8” threads at both ends. This enables use as a monopod, or a microphone boom, selfie stick, camera boom arm and many other functions.
