Does a Lightweight, Tall, Portable, Tripod Exist? Yes! Our 3 Legged Thing “Eric” Review

by planetMitch3 Comments

Eric has treated me insanely well in the last 2 years. I highly recommend 3 Legged Thing!

I confess, I thought I published this review a year or more ago. I just found it in my pile of FCPX libraries and I checked my youtube account and discovered I never uploaded it. SHAME! EMBARRASSMENT! Putting myself in time-out for the next week.

Anyway, I do use my Eric every time I need a tripod. As I said I have others, but Eric is my constant companion when I go out shooting.

It is amazing that a tripod can fit in a suitcase and still be taller than me.

  1. Went to the 3-Legged Thing site, both the UK and US stores, and searched for Eric. In each case it came up “not found.” What might I be missing. Your video makes it sound very interesting. Maybe it’s only available on your planet?

      You’re right. I said the review was old and again I apologize. They have all new models now.
