3 Legged Thing has just announced two all-new products, a levelling base and a 75mm Half Bowl; both will join the company’s existing range of supports.
The levelling base will be compatible with all 3 Legged Thing tripods, or for that matter, any tripod that features a 3/8-inch mounting thread.
3 Legged Thing has designed both products with today’s photographers and videographers in mind. Therefore the levelling head and 75mm bowl will suit both photographers and videographers.
“The popularity of levelling systems as a modern photography tool combined with customer demand for a standalone version of the levelling mechanism on our Mike and Jay tripods has been the catalyst for creating the Levelling Base. Both the Levelling Base and Half Bowl are fantastic additions to our portfolio, especially as the 75mm Half Bowl can add an extra level of versatility to our Nicky and Tommy tripods,” said Stuart Boston, 3LT’s Chief Operations Officer.
“We’ve been able to produce products that not only withstand the rigours of even the most brutal terrain and weather conditions, but also have the functionality and innovation sought after by our customers, and the photography and videography communities.” “The popularity of levelling systems as a modern photography tool combined with customer demand for a standalone version of the levelling mechanism on our Mike and Jay tripods has been the catalyst for creating the Levelling Base.”
3 Legged Thing Leveling base
The new levelling base has been fashioned from precision-engineered anodised aerospace-grade magnesium alloy. The base offers two mounting options to ensure maximum compatibility: a standard 1/4-inch 3/8-inch with the supplied adapter.
A ratcheted locking knob on the side is used to release or lock the base, making it easy to handle in all conditions. Using a levelling base speeds up the levelling process enabling you to get a flat, stable foundation without adjusting the tripod legs.
On the underside of the base is a 3/8-inch thread that will screw directly into most tripod legs. The base also features a bubble level to give you a visual guide.
Another feature of the levelling base is the 360º pan; this makes it a perfect option for photographers looking for a panoramic solution with precision.

The new 75mm Half Bowl is again crafted from anodised aerospace-grade magnesium alloy. Designed for use with the 3 Legged Thing Nicky and Tommy Tripods, it’s also a perfect match with the AirHed Cine or 3LT’s lightweight video head.
To ensure a level base, a bubble level is built-in. As well as the locking handle to help position the bowl, there’s the addition of a knurled hook that can be used to hang additional weight, helping to enhance the tripod’s stability. Alternatively, the hook can be removed to reveal an additional 3/8-inch thread for mounting additional accessories.
