“Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of who do the things no one can imagine.” - Alan Turing
Alan is a powerful additional to any professional photographer or filmmaker's toolbox.
Alan is the perfect blend of size, weight and capability; a professional monopod built for versatility, adaptability, and resilience.
With a stored height of just 450 mm, Alan is compact enough to be stored in hand-luggage.
Formed from eight layers of 100% pure pre-preg carbon fibre, and aircraft grade alloys, Alan is as robust as he is light.
With standard threads at both ends, Alan is highly versatile and can also be used as a camera or microphone boom.
Built For Travel
Alan was designed to cater for professional photographers and videographers. Folding to just 450 mm / 17 ", Alan will fit in your hand luggage.
Thanks to Alan's unique construction, and standard thread sizes, he can also be used as a microphone or camera boom.
Max Load to Weight Ratio of 100:1
Alan can support weights of almost 100 times his own weight. With a 60 kg / 130 lb payload, Alan is capable of supporting even the heaviest of camera equipment.
3 Legged Thing's unique Big Grip provides maximum grip for ultimate security, with deep channels designed to disperse moisture.
Shaping The Future
Our patented Tri-Mount plate offers three hollowed spurs for accessory attachments, and cable management.
A Range of Footwear
Alan has a detachable rubber Boot, which can be replaced with any of our foot accessories, for maximum stability on any terrain, but is most synonymous with our DOCZ foot spreader.
If The Boot Fits...
Docz foot-spreader is the ultimate stabiliser for monopods.
Unlike conventional foot spreaders, Docz has a single boot on the underside, preventing the unit from flexing when pressure is applied.
With an adjustable drag, Docz can be tensioned to suit, or the dual lock at the top can stop all movement.
With a ball machined from aircraft-grade magnesium alloy, your monopod can be angled smoothly, without juddering or variable grip.
Below is a list of Alan's specifications, with and without the Docz foot spreader.
