hANDS-ON: Ellie by 3 Legged Thing
Introducing the Ellie by 3 Legged Thing.
Camera accessories are the essential tools that aid our photographic lives and make shots that little bit easier. L-brackets are one of these great tools, allowing users to easily switch from landscape to portrait format, but finding the right type of L-bracket can be difficult, especially if you have an oddly shaped camera body, [or indeed two different camera bodies].
This adjustable L-bracket gives you the ability to ‘shape’ to your camera no matter what size it is. This makes life a breeze and potentially means that you’ve got one bracket for life, even if you switch to a different camera/system.
The only issue we saw was the lack of a battery door for simple switching, but that is to be expected when using a universal L-Bracket. That said, it is just one screw standing in your way.
The Ellie by 3 Legged Thing has nine different configurations make it the most flexible L-bracket we’ve ever used. The side panel offers a cut out for easy access to the microphone jack and this panel can be moved depending what camera you have and where the microphone jack sits. Another great use is for telephoto lenses making it easier to support your heavy lenses on your tripod. It truly is the L-Bracket of many talents.
Coming in at price point of £64.99, we can’t really see how you can go wrong with the Ellie. With two colours to choose from, you can stand out with the Copper or blend in with the Metallic Slate Grey.
Overall we are fans of the Ellie from 3 Legged Thing and we think you’d be impressed too.
