Bucky is one of two new tripods launched into 3 Legged Things Legends range. Designed as a travel tripod, it’s launched alongside the Ray and joins the Mike and Jay video tripods that were launched earlier this year.
Designed to be lightweight while still providing you with full-height support, Bucky packs in the features. It also features a new AirHed VU which has a small window that gives you a view into the heads inner workings.
As with 3LT’s other recent releases, the tripod is packed with features including three removable legs, interchangeable feet, a removable centre column and so much more.
Bucky is the result of everything that 3LT has learnt and observed over the years and it’s apparent that the companies design team has worked hard with existing user feedback, as well as their own experiences to develop a high-quality travel tripod.
The machining is the first design feature to strikes you, it’s a level up from what we had seen before.
Then there are all the additional extras, clever use of materials and design quirks such as the window in the VU head.
From the outset, Bucky seems to be a well-balanced tripod; built to last, lightweight with features and options that enable you to develop and customise it to perfectly fit in with your way of working.
It certainly looks and feels the part, but is this all more looks than function?
