Iggy is 3 Legged Thing’s new mini tripod. Built from rugged ABS plastic, and with an adjustable ballhead and 1/4”-20 screw mount, Iggy is a highly versatile mini tripod.

Measuring just 14 cm / 5.5 “ tall when open, Iggy lends itself to a variety of uses including desktop tripod, mount for microphones or lights, low-level tripod for compact and lightweight cameras, and paired with The Cradle, can be used as a stand for smartphones on planes, trains and tables.

Iggy can be folded to create an ergonomic handle for hand-held use, creating a mini selfie stick. Iggy is packaged with a handy GoPro adapter for use with the popular action camera range, further extending its myriad uses.

“I’m really excited to introduce Iggy & The Cradle,” commented 3 Legged Thing Founder & CEO, Danny Lenihan. “They’re really the first products we have created that have global appeal – not just to photographers and videographers, but to anyone who uses a smartphone or action cam to film. They’re also the first products that take us beyond the boundaries of photography specialist retailers.”

Following a huge number of customer requests, 3 Legged Thing is also delighted to add The Cradle to its range. Featuring two 1/4”-20 screw threads for attachment to tripods, including Iggy, The Cradle is a super-versatile expandable smartphone holder.
