We don't make tripods. We make tripod systems.
The X1.1 Brian is the most versatile and capable travel tripod in the world. The unique triple section ten-core carbon fiber centre column provides functionality beyond the scope of ordinary travel tripods:
1: It enables extension of the tripod to the maximum height of 2.06m (7ft) which is perfect for using with off camera flash, as the added height gives the user greater versatility.
2: When the extended column is use with the legs retracted in position 2 (55 degrees), this is known as tri-mono mode. Tri-mono mode enables photographers shooting with larger lenses to stabilise their equipment, without having to hold it up, which further enables them to go to a second camera without having to put the main set up down on the floor.
3: When used with the column inverted, and the legs in position 2, fully extended, the user is able to lower your camera to the floor for macro photography, whilst retaining a large working area underneath the legs. The mounting point at each end of the column further allows for the user to add a laptop platform or iPad bracket, so that they may shoot tethered, which negates the difficulty of working with an inverted screen.
Because of the added sections, stability is reduced through the tripod when fully extended. This is why we have designed Brian so that you can completely remove the column, and mount the head or even your camera directly to the main tripod furniture, gaining back the rigidity required for longer exposures. this enables you to use Brian at just 125mm, when the legs are fully retracted in position 3 (80 degrees), giving Brian the largest dynamic range of any tripod in the world.
The design of the Brian is such that the tripod, when folded, will easily fit into most hand luggage. The D rings on the bag allow for the bag to be connected to another bag or trolley for easy transportation.
