British tripod and camera accessory manufacturer, 3 Legged Thing has announced an upgrade to its tallest monopod with the release of the 3 Legged Thing Punks Trent 2.0.
At just over 2m tall, the four-section Trent 2.0 is one of the tallest tripods around. It also packs down to around 60cm in length and weighs a little over 700g but can support a payload of up to 30Kg.
In keeping with the changes introduced with 3 Legged Things Punks 2.0 range of tripods, the Trent 2.0 features rugged leg locks that have a knurled ring as well as large rubber grips. Inside the locks, 3 Legged Thing has used its ‘Chicken Lips’ shims to make the Trent 2.0 more rigid and stable than its predecessor. It means the Trent 2.0 can be used as a boom arm as well as a monopod.
The Punks Trent 2.0 monopod features dual 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threads at either end to enable a camera or tripod head to mounted at the top or the standard rubber foot to be replaced by the 3 Legged Thing Docz2 stabiliser foot.
3 Legged Thing has used magnesium alloy for the Trent 2.0’s four leg sections. It also has put a broad rubber grip at the top of the monopod to enable photographers and videographers to keep their camera steady in all weather.
3 Legged Thing’s Chief Operations Officer, Stuart Boston, says “Trent has been one of our most popular products since its release in 2018. We’re excited to bring the new refreshed Punks 2.0 look to Trent, whilst maintaining the unparalleled load capability and impressive extended height of its predecessor. We’re sure that videographers, wildlife, and sports shooters will love it!”
