I was introduced to 3 Legged Thing at Photo Plus Expo 2012 and was in the market for a new tripod. Upgrading to a full frame camera meant heavier lenses, and the tripods I owned were not measuring up. They were either too heavy to carry everywhere, or not strong enough to handle my new gear. The people from 3 Legged Thing introduced me to X1.1 Brian Evolution 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod System, and I was very impressed. It seems a lot of thought went into the production of it–so I was thrilled to finally use it.
