3 Legged Thing’s Iconic Travel Tripod ‘Brian’ Gets a Facelift

Simon Skinner - 5 years ago

British tripod manufacturer, 3 Legged Thing has announced the return of their hero, travel tripod, Brian, now available with new and improved features

Brian is back. 3 Legged Thing’s most recognised tripod has been given a facelift and takes his place amongst 3LT’s Punks range of tripods. The new Punks Brian with all of its refinement and general improvements is a pure travel tripod; lightweight, [only 1.45 kg] and compact for easy transportation, folding to just 41 cm.

These impressive factors don’t detract from Brian’s capability as his two column sections and five leg sections give excellent versatility, as well as a max height of 1.87 m.

Brian was our first ever tripod, and the catalyst for our naming trend, and inspiration for all the brands that have followed suit. We retired Brian after four incarnations; 1st Gen, 2nd Gen, Evo 2 and Evo 3, back in 2015, with a heavy heart. At the time we felt we needed a fresh angle. We’ve missed him every day since, and so I am so excited to announce his return, but this time as part of our iconic Punks range.

The new Punks Brian will be revealed at The Photography Show, which kicks off at the NEC, Birmingham this weekend between the 17-20th March 2018. You can meet the new Brian on 3 Legged Thing’s stand [E71] throughout the show. 

Brian will come in at £269.99
