3 LEGGED THING X4A Jack Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod System with Airhed 1 Black
The Evolution 2 X4a Jack is 3 Legged Things all-round Mag Alloy tripod system. With just 4 leg sections in 26mm Stealth Magnesium Alloy™, Jack has amazing rigidity and stability. Designed for multipurpose use, Jack folds to a neat 500mm and extends from 135mm to beyond 2 metres, making Jack the tallest, lowest alloy tripod in the range.
Jack’s patented multi-functional use makes him one of the most capable and user-friendly tripods ever created. 3LT’s innovative system enables a number of modifications to transform the capability of Jack. With a detachable Monopod which is the tallest in 3LT’s 26mm range, and a double section removable and reversible central column, Jack really is the ideal all-round tripod.
Jack is the alloy version of 3LT’s 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:
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.
Features a tri-mono mode, which enables photographers shooting with larger lenses to stabilise their equipment, without having to hold it up.
Ability 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.
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.
