Digital Camera World Verdict

The 3 Legged Thing Leo 2.0 folds down to an impressively short length and extends to a very acceptable (and usable) maximum height. It's a little fatter than some other travel tripods when it's collapsed, but it's sturdy and well-made with high-quality engineering on display. It makes a great pairing with the AirHed Pro ball head.

3 Legged thing sells the Leo 2.0 by itself or with the AirHed Pro Lever ball head. We're looking at the kit with the head here.

As the most compact tripod in 3 Legged Thing's Pro range, the Leo 2.0 packs down to just 37.4cm in length with the head still attached. And at full height with the centre column extended, it measures 146cm. If the centre column is removed, the maximum height is 112cm and the minimum shooting height is just 21cm. Alternatively, the centre column can be reversed and the camera slung between the legs for even lower-level shooting.
