3 Legged Thing reveals Docz2 Monopod Stabiliser and mini tripod

3 Legged Thing Docz2

Monopods are great except for one thing: when you let go, they fall over. So British tripod maker 3 Legged Thing launched a Docz foot stabiliser in the summer of 2018 so that its monopods can stand up on their own. The Docz2, just announced, goes a step further by working as a table-top mini-tripod too.

It’s such a great idea – a folding ‘foot’ attachment that screws into the base of the monopod and makes it a free-standing camera support. Obviously it’s not going to be as stable as a tripod, but at least it gives you hands-free operation when you need it and sometimes even the best monopod needs a little extra support.
