3 Legged Thing Announce Iggy & The Cradle

Simon Skinner - 3 years ago

The Lucie Technology Awards Tripod of the Year winner, 3 Legged Thing has unveiled a new table-top tripod-come-handle grip, along with a smartphone cradle – Iggy & The Cradle

Iggy is 3 Legged Thing’s new mini tripod. Built from tough ABS plastic with an adjustable ball head and 1/4” screw mount, Iggy has landed as a useful and versatile little tripod.

At just 14 cm tall when open, Iggy lends itself to a variety of uses including desktop tripod, mount for microphones or lights, low-level tripod for compact and lightweight cameras, and paired with The Cradle, can be used as a stand for smartphones. The Cradle can hold all manner of smartphones up to iPhone 8 Plus, and Samsung Galaxy S8 width, and thanks to the choice of centre or end thread mounts can hold phones in both vertical and horizontal positions. The Cradle also folds flat for storage and transportation.

I’m really excited to introduce Iggy & The Cradle. They’re really the first products we have created that have global appeal – not just to photographers and videographers, but to anyone who uses a smartphone or action cam to film. They’re also the first products that take us beyond the boundaries of photography specialist retailers.

When folded, Iggy creates a handle for hand-held shooting, effectively creating a mini selfie stick. Iggy also comes with a GoPro adapter for use with so many popular action camera products, further extending its multiple uses.
