3 Legged Thing X0a TIM Evolution 2 Compact Magnesium Alloy Tripod System with AirHed 0 Ballhead
3 Legged Thing doesn't make tripods. They make tripod systems.
The X0a TIM is is a compact system dedicated tripod. Many photographers who use compact system cameras (Leica M9, Panasonic Lumix GF1, Olympus Pen, Sony NEX etc) don't like to carry a tripod, because of the bulk and extra weight. People use compact system cameras purely and simply because they can get professional images without having to carry a heavy DSLR, lenses and other equipment.
With this idea in mind, 3LT came up with the idea for Tim: a small, compact and powerful tripod, capable of holding over 26.45 lbs (12kg) in weight, but folding up to the size of an average 70 - 200mm F2.8 lens. Tim features two section Stealth Magnesium Alloy legs, a 2 section Alloy column, rugged double-break friction locks and stunning anodized details throughout. At just 11.8" (300mm) folded, and at 2.78 lbs (1260g), Tim will fit into any standard messenger bag.
Now you can capture beautiful images with longer exposures without the bulk and weight of a traditional tripod.
