“In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth.” - Patti Smith
Patti is our first flip-lock, general use tripod. And what a tripod she is...
The pursuit of art and the pursuit of new ideas...
Challenging the very farbic of convention, Patti becomes 3LT's first female-named tripod, inspired by the great Patti Smith.
Patti is the first of our tripods to use flip leg locks. Formed from rugged, hard-wearing, ABS plastic, Patti’s flip locks have a smooth action which secures the legs in position.
Patti has a higher maximum load capacity than is usually found in tripods of this class. Able to support up to 10 kg / 22 lbs, that’s more than enough for most mirrorless and DLSR cameras.
Enabling photographers’ creativity, Patti includes a reversible and removable centre column, ideal for focussing on low level subjects, or shooting from an alternative perspective.
Designed For Everyone
With 4-section legs and a single column, Patti folds up to just 45 cm / 17.7 “ making her an ideal tripod to carry with you every day.
Optimum Leg Angles
To enable shooting from a variety of heights, Patti’s legs have three optimal angles – 23˚, 55˚, and 80˚. The widest angle allows photographers to shoot as low as 11 cm / 4.25
Reversible Centre Column
For greater versatility, including macro and low-level shooting, Patti has a removable and reversible centre column
Best in Class
Patti has a maximum load capacity of 10 kg / 22 lbs – the largest capacity of any tripod in its class.
Our patented Tri-Mount plate offers three hollowed spurs for accessory attachments, and enables Patti to counter-fold, even when the column is removed.
A Range of Footwear
Patti has detachable rubber Bootz, which can be replaced with any of our foot accessories, for maximum stability on any terrain.
