3 Legged Thing Launch ‘Punks Billy’ Tripod
British tripod innovators, 3 Legged Thing are launching a brand new, entry-level carbon tripod. The ‘Punks’ branded “BILLY” tripod features 100% carbon legs and column, detachable monopod, low level shooting, ergonomic grips and the patented Tri-Mount plate.
The new Punks-branded Billy tripod from 3 Legged Thing adopts many of the features of the premium, award winning, Equinox & Eclipse range of tripods, including 8 layers of 100% pure pre-preg carbon fibre legs and column, detachable monopod leg, ultra-low level shooting, macro capability, multiple mounting points, ergonomic bubble-grips, and 3 Legged Thing’s unique, patented Tri-Mount technology.
“It’s been a few years since we had an entry-level carbon tripod in our catalogue, so we wanted to make sure we produced something relevant and exciting” commented 3 Legged Thing’s Founder & CEO, Danny Lenihan
The Punks Billy features modular functionality that allows users to remove, attach and reconfigure elements of the tripod to facilitate a multitude of uses. Particularly useful is the removable centre column, which allows Billy to get very low, and increases the rigidity of the tripod when removed. The detachable monopod leg is a standard feature across all 3 Legged Thing tripods. Punks Billy has the added advantage of removable and interchangeable footwear, to help accommodate even the most challenging terrains.
“As with all of our Punks-branded products, we really wanted to produce something more price-accessible whilst still offering some of our professional features. Not all photographers can afford to splash thousands of pounds on gear, and our Punks range was invented to enable those on a lower budget to get professional results without breaking the bank”
