New L-brackets from 3LT
Posted on Jun 28, 2023
Best known for its tripods, British manufacturer 3 Legged Thing is switching things up by announcing two new L-brackets for Sony and OM System cameras, which allow users to switch their tripod-mounted machines from landscape to portrait and vice versa – all the while maintaining a level horizon.
The firm is excited about its new product, and has named the Sony A7 IV- and A7R V-compatible bracket Alfie and the OM-1 variant Ollie.
Made from aerospace-grade magnesium alloy, the Alfie L-bracket has been designed to fit the contours of Sony cameras, while giving users complete access to battery doors and side ports. Rear LCD screens can be opened when upright or tilted, while there are two threads on the bracket for the attachment of accessories. An extending base allows Sony users to plug in cables and includes a detachable cable management tool for extra support.
For OM System users, the Ollie L-bracket offers full access to the OM-1’s side ports and battery door, while the L-bracket’s vertical aspect has a cutout that allows the camera’s screen to be flipped out and tilted.
Both are available in a trio of colours: copper, metallic slate grey or a matte black ‘darkness’ version. Alfie retails at £109.99, while Ollie is £99.99.
