3 Legged Thing launches universal QR11 brackets

Press release issued by 3 Legged Thing:

3 Legged Thing is proud to introduce …
The QR11-LC & QR11-LG

British Tripod brand, 3 Legged Thing has launched its latest Universal L Bracket. The QR11-LC and QR11-LG are the result of six months of research and development, offering universal compatibility, accessory attachment and flat storage.

What’s the story?

The QR11 comes with triangular pads, designed to tessellate and provide as much surface contact as possible on the baseplate, which translates to more grip and a more secure connection. The base itself is the optimal length for most cameras, enabling more compatibility and better access to cable sockets. It features a quarter-inch threaded hole on the upright, for attaching other accessories, and a strap connector on both aspects.

“I really wanted to produce something cross-compatible with as many cameras as I could. I wanted to make something that is more than just an L-Bracket. Our Mission at 3 Legged Thing has always been to add as much value in innovation as we can to our products, and the QR11 is no exception,” said 3 Legged Thing’s Founder and Chief Executive, Danny Lenihan (pictured).

“I also wanted to produce something that was affordable,”said Lenihan. “So many L Brackets are upwards of $150 to $250, which is a lot of money for a student or any photographer, really. It’s important that we are as inclusive as we can be, so that photography enthusiasts on smaller budgets, can still have the opportunity to use an L Bracket. At $49.99, I think we’ve achieved that.”

The QR11 also has another neat trick – it can be disassembled in seconds, using the included multi-tool (3LT-TOOLZ) and stored flat, making it easier to transport and stow. It also comes in two colour options: Equinox Copper and Eclipse Grey, to suit your style.

Advanced stabilisation

The Removu S1 delivers extremely stable and vibration free footage. The 3-axis stabilisation is manufactured with world class brushless DC motors and rotary sensors, removing unwanted movements and giving your footage a smooth professional look.

Water resistant

The motors and body of the Removu S1 are specifically designed to be water resistant. So whether your using the waterproof GoPro Hero5 or the S1’s rainproof housing for GoPro’s 3 & 4, you can keep shooting through whatever nature can throw at you!

Wireless control

The Removu S1 comes equipped with a detachable wireless joystick remote control. This allows you to control the angle of the camera and switch between the different modes on the gimbal using the 5-way jog key on the wireless remote.

Hold. Wear. Mount.

Removing the handrip from the body transforms the Removu S1 into mountable gimbal. You can attach the main gimbal body to any GoPro compatible mounting system o譠ering incredible versatility.

Control modes

PAN: The camera will smoothly follow your panning motion but cancel out any pitch  or roll movements.

FOLLOW: The camera will follow the direction the S1 is facing left, right, up and down.

LOCK: The camera is locked into it’s current position and maintains that orientation regardless of how the S1 is moved.

Extended battery life

The S1 has an excellent battery life of 3-5 hours. But what makes the Removu S1 even more attractive is that once the battery does run low, you can simply swap it out for a fully charged spare! There are also two micro SD slots in the handle cap so you’ll be able to capture every second of your adventure.

3 Legged Thing idea to product insight

From Concept To Corey – A Product Journey

Three legged thing Corey

British Tripod Brand, 3 Legged Thing, famous for their innovation and quirky designs are offering an unprecedented opportunity to gain a unique insight into their production process of their latest launch – Punks Corey

#ConceptToCorey is a new project which documents the journey; from the very doodles of an idea, through to engineering CADs, photo-realisitic renders, prototyping and testing. It’s all here, laid bare for photographers and voyeurs of ‘how stuff works’  to get a handle on what goes into bringing a 3LT tripod to market.

 

 

The project will be chartered across Twitter and Instagram. “We have an incredible level of engagement across the regular social media platforms – those photographers who’ve used our tripods or just love our branding and style, feel that they have a direct way to communicate with us. We wanted to be able to share with them an interesting insight into how we bring our products to market.” commented 3LT’s Global Marketing Manager, Dan Crawford.

“It doesn’t even end at product launch” comments 3LT Founder and CEO, Danny Lenihan. “We quite often make small design adjustments and adaptations once we receive consumer feedback, after the launch. We want to be able to produce the best products we can, and who better to provide the inspiration for change than the many thousands of customers we have dotted around the world?”

The project is to end on Christmas Day. 3 Legged Thing promise to show some of the intricate details of the design work, and follow the critical path from Concept to Corey.
