Flip-Lock Leg Design

The 3 Legged Thing Patti Punks Tripod is the first to feature flip leg locks. Named after the famous American singer-songwriter and artist Patti Smith, the Patti Punks has a long list of features despite its reasonable price tag. The perfect choice for beginner and enthusiast photographers.

163cm Maximum Height Extension

The Patti starts out at a diminutive 45cm when completely folded, thanks to it’s inverted leg design and extends to an impressive 163cm at its maximum extension. The 4 section legs and adjustable centre column ensure fine-tuning your camera height is quick and convenient.

Easy to Use

The flip leg locks are made from rugged ABS plastic and feature a smooth yet secure action that ensures the legs are firmly locked into place at your desired height. The simple lever action design is fast and easily adjustable for quick setup when rushing to make the most of the fading light.

10kg Maximum Load Capacity

Punching well above its weight class, the Patti supports camera setups up to 10kg, more than enough for most mirrorless and DLSR camera and lens combinations as well as camcorders and video recorders.

Removable Centre Column

The versatile adjustable centre column makes fine-tuning your desired height fast and accurate. The centre column design allows it to be removed completely and reversed for ultra-low angle shooting, a must have function for serious macro shooters.

Three Pre-Set Leg Angles

The legs have three optimal angles to satisfy a broad range of shooting conditions and requirements. Fixed angles of 23°, 55° and 80° cover most scenarios and ensure suitability for a broad range of uneven surfaces.

Anodised Ball Head

The AirHed Mini Ball Head further increases the versatility of the tripod. It features a striking anodised blue and orange finish with 3LT’s patented tri-mount plate for clip-on accessories.

Three Individual Control Knobs

Its arca-type compatible design features three individual control knobs for adjusting your camera positioning. One controls 360° panning, the second adjusts movement of the ball and the third enables fine-tuning tension control to increase or decrease drag on the ball for maximum customisation.
