Always Look On The Bright Side of Life...

Brian is a true travel tripod. Designed to be both compact and lightweight, but stable enough for full-size cameras and long lenses, Brian is versatile, durable, and strong – offering photographers a world of possibilities.

Throw him to the floor

Brian is incredibly versatile with a minimum height of just 11 cm / 4.33” and stretching up to 187 cm / 74” at full extension.

Blessed Are The Cheesemakers

Formed from eight layers of 100% pure pre-preg carbon fibre, Brian is available in two colourways, and has precision-engineered mechanisms to ensure ease of use in any situation.

Let Me Shoulder Your Burden

Brian features a detachable monopod leg which extends to a massive 192 cm / 75.6” at full height. Not only can it function as a monopod, but it can also be used as a camera or microphone boom, or even a selfie stick!

True Travel Tripod

Brian’s legs counterfold around the column making him a compact 41 cm / 16.14” – ready to travel anywhere.

Detachable Monopod

Brian, like all 3 Legged Thing tripods, comes with an easily detachable monopod leg that can also be used as a microphone or camera boom.

Max Load to Weight Ratio of 10:1

Brian can support weights of almost 10 times his own weight. With a 14kg payload, Brian is capable of supporting a wide range of camera equipment.

Bubble Grips

3 Legged Thing's unique Bubble Grip system provides better leverage, and greater rigidity, with smooth, easy to use mechanism.

Shaping The Future

Our patented Tri-Mount plate offers three hollowed spurs for accessory attachments, and enables Brian to fold up, even when the column is detached.

A Range of Footwear

Brian has detachable rubber Bootz, which can be replaced with any of our foot accessories, for maximum stability on any terrain.
