Our Verdict

Whether you capture landscapes, astro, studio work or other types of photography where a stable tripod is required, the 3 Legged Thing Charles 2.0 Aluminium Tripod and AirHed Pro Kit is a worthy choice. The tripod legs are made from high-quality aerospace grade magnesium alloy, which is stable, durable and strong. Charles 2.0 also features innovative modular conversion into a boom, monopod or tabletop tripod, as well as the ability to shoot extremely low to the ground with the column reversed. With a maximum extended height of nearly 2 metres you have every possible shooting situation covered, including hills and slopes.

These innovations aside, 3 Legged Thing engineer their equipment to withstand high loads of camera equipment and both the Charles 2.0 legs and AirHed Pro ball head have a maximum top down payload of 40kg. This is ample for even the heaviest of professional camera bodies and longer telephoto lenses which are needed for landscape photography. The professional ball head is equally sturdy with a smooth 360º panning action and Arca Swiss compatibility, which complements this kit perfectly for photographers who need a stable and extremely versatile all-in-one tripod solution.
