The 3 Legged Thing X4a Jack Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod is a 4 leg section tripod that folds down to a neat 500mm and is designed for multipurpose use. The X4a Jack features a unique double section magnesium alloy centre column which extends the overall height of the tripod from 135mm to a maximum height of 2.1m. Jack is 3 Legged Things most rigid and stable 26mm (tubing diameter of leg & column) tripod (excluding the compact system tripods). The innovative system of the 3 Legged Thing enables a number of modifications to transform the capability of Jack. With a detachable Monopod which is the tallest in their 26mm range, and a double section removable and reversible central column, Jack really is the ideal all-round tripod.
3 Legged Thing X4a Jack Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod
Jack is the alloy version of our award winning Eric tripod. The X4a Jack features a unique double section aircraft-grade magnesium alloy centre column, which provides functionality beyond the scope of ordinary tripods:
1: It enables extension of the tripod to the maximum height of 2.1m (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 Jack 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 Jack at just 135mm, when the legs are fully retracted in position 3 (80 degrees), giving Jack a dynamic range second only to our travel tripod, Brian. Jack is our most rigid and stable 26mm tripod (excluding our compact system tripods).
The design of the Jack is such that the tripod, when folded, is just 500mm long. The D rings on the bag allow for the bag to be connected to another bag or trolley for easy transportation.
