Digital Camera World Verdict

Like a dedicated L-bracket, the Lexie enables you to quickly swap between landscape and portrait orientation shooting when using a tripod, while retaining an excellent balance instead of having the camera hanging off one side of the tripod head. It also avoids a shift in camera position, so there’s less need to reframe the composition. The Lexie’s key advantage is its ‘universal’ design. We love that we can quickly and easily adjust it to suit pretty much any and every DLSR and mirrorless camera. It’s also surprisingly versatile for an L-bracket, with extra bonus features. One size really does fit all, and Lexie’s impeccable build quality and performance make it great value at the price.

The 3 Legged Thing Lexie aims to please everybody. An L-bracket is a smart bit of kit for anybody who wants to quickly swap between landscape and portrait orientation shooting when using a tripod. 3 Legged Thing makes a wide range of dedicated L-brackets like the Zelda, to suit specific cameras. Engineered from a single piece of magnesium alloy, they’re very well made and deliver flawless performance. However, if you use more than one make or model of camera, their compatibility is naturally limited.
