On 4 August 2020, the award-winning tripod manufacturer 3 Legged Thing (3LT) added two premium travel tripods to their Legends range – Ray and Bucky. Matching the same quality of the Legends these are professional photo/video hybrid levelling base tripods offer a few new upgrades including a contoured tri-mount and Airflow canopy, and the new AirHead Vu ball head.
Inspired by the creativity and innovation of skateboarder, musician, photographer and 3LT Pro Team member, Ray Barbee, the new additions are heavy-duty tripods that fall into the travel range. This is because while they are small enough to fit into carry-on hand luggage or larger camera bags, they can support up to 20 and 24 times their own weight, respectively. This is likely thanks to being made from 100% pure carbon fibre and aerospace-grade magnesium alloy.
