Tripods are troublesome things. As regular readers will know, we at Camera contend there are two items of photographic kit that will never, ever be quite right – the camera bag and the tripod. We don’t think we’re alone either because plenty of people seem to believe they can do a better job by designing their own… which is a good thing because sooner or later we might just be proved wrong.
Building a better camera bag is what spawned, for example, Think Tank Photo in the USA, and it’s frustration with tripod designs that has resulted in 3 Legged Thing. Like TTP, 3LT is run by a bunch of photographers and they’re based in a converted chicken shed on a remote farmhouse in rural Bedfordshire, England.
Already you might be getting the idea that these guys (and one girl) like to do things a bit differently from the mainstream manufacturers. In fact, even the funsters at Think Tank Photo look a bit conservative in comparison. Think instead, of what might result if Think Tank Photo and Crumpler ever got together.
