Tripod maker, 3 Legged Thing has released a new colourway for its L-bracket models – “Darkness”.

The limited edition matte black option now offers photographers more choice and has expanded the existing QR11 2.0, Zelda, Roxie and Gracy L-bracket range.

This deep matte black colour was added in response to requests from photographers in the field, including wildlife photographers who needed a more discreet set-up working in hides.

The 3 Legged Thing L-brackets allow a quick change from landscape to portrait orientation when using a tripod. They’re also used to help maintain a level horizon and keep the camera on the same focal plane, while keeping the weight of the camera above the centre of the tripod – the most stable position.
