Reasons to buy from Park Cameras

Part of 3LT's Legends range of ultra-premium tripods, MIKE is one of 3LT's first hybrid photo/video products. Mike is a carbon fibre levelling-base tripod, with 3 section legs, and friction control on the underside to finely adjust the position of the levelling base.

Equally useful for video makers or landscape photographers, levelling base systems enable smooth and fast set-ups on challenging terrain. Legends tripods all have 3 detachable legs, enabling them to be used as monopods or boom arms. The levelling base can be converted to a foot stabiliser for the monopod or turned into a table-top or low level tripod by removing all 3 legs and replacing with a set of 3LT footwear*

Legends tripods also feature 3LT's new Rapid Latch, a hardwearing anodised mag-alloy leg latch with auto engage lock, used to open and position the legs, and which has been designed to make adjusting the legs quick and easy, even when wearing thick gloves. Mike features a new leg lock design with raised O-Pads for improved grip, leverage and water dispersement. Internally the locks have been engineered with a new type of Chicken Lips (shims) which give the locks greater strength, grip and formidable anti-rotation.

MikeKit-V includes 3LT's first dedicated video head - the AirHed Cine, with a Manfrotto-Style Standard Video Plate and clamp. Precision milled from aerospace-grade magnesium alloy, and featuring a distinctive spiderweb design, the AirHed Cine has an adjustable, fluid-action tilt mechanism that offers smooth movement and can be controlled directly, or with the included panning arm. The arm can be fitted to either side of the head for right or left-handed operation.
