HOW TO CHOOSE A TRIpOD


choosing the right tripod can be an overwhelming experience; there are so many choices! Really Right Stuff has built a solid reputation as your camera support experts because we understand how to select the best support system for you from the ground up. Here are a number of things to consider when choosing a new tripod. Number of Leg Sections Favor tripods with 3 leg-sections per leg over 4 leg-sections for most applications. Since each leg section has to telescope into the previous section, the fourth and final leg section of a 4 leg-sections model is smaller and relatively weaker. So opt for fewer sections to maximize your support. also, tripods with 3 leg-sections have only two joints per leg. In general terms, the fewer joints, the better the support; the fewer joints, the less hassle to extend and collapse. But there are times when a tripod with 4 leg-sections is a good choice. If travel and portability are premium considerations for you, tripods with 4 leg-sections collapse into a shorter closed length. this can often mean the difference between fitting in that carry-on suitcase or leaving your tripod behind. Carbon Fiber or Aluminum? todays best tripods for discriminating photographers are made from carbon fiber. their many benefits include: Height & Center Columns this addresses both maximum height and minimum height. Want to have your viewfinder at eye level? choose a tripod that extends to within about 6-inches of eye level (that remaining 6-inches will be taken up by your ballhead and camera). Want to shoot at ground level? choose a tripod without a center column. all Really Right Stuff Versa tripods give you the best of both worlds: they come standard without center column but accept a range of accessories, including optional center columns. Other Factors the selection of a tripod stems from three inputs: personal preference and budget, load, and surroundings. a wellcrafted support system is built with quality components that complement each other and satisfy the genuine needs and preferences of each shooter. tripod legs, ballhead, quickrelease clamping system, camera and opticsa well chosen combination, used properly, will yield the finest results with every use. Buy right the first time, and you will maximize your investments. this concept is the heart of the Really Right Stuff support synergy philosophy.

greatest weight to stability ratio. Easier to handle in extreme cold since the leg sections do not get as cold as aluminum. Dampens vibration faster than aluminum. typically half the weight of a comparable aluminum model.

SUREGRIP APEX LOCK other tripods rely on a split apex to keep your accessories in place, and inherently suffer from a weakened structure and a lock that relies on friction alone. If inadvertently loosened, it is possible for the center platform/column to fall out. We solved this problem with the Really Right Stuff exclusive Suregrip

THE pURSUIT OF pERFECTION

Words from Joe Johnson, Owner of Really Right Stuff a while back, I got an itch to design a tripod that would marry the Really Right Stuff ideal of soul-satisfying feel and finish with best-in-class strength and resilience. three years, thousands of design hours, numerous prototypes and weeks of field-testing later, Im confident we succeeded. Driven to produce the best possible still-photography tripod money can buy, we committed that all features, materials, fit and finish meet and exceed the best in the world. the result is not a mass-produced item available at any corner shop. We painstakingly machine most components and assemble each tripod by hand right here in San luis obispo, california. What we dont produce ourselves is all made in the United States-down to the smallest screw. this flies in the face of the age of outsourced production to low-cost countries, but it allows us total and direct control of the end product. admittedly the price may be out of reach for many, but the best tools are worth the investment if it raises your level of art and enjoyment of use. We hope you agree there is no finer camera support gear at any price. We proudly introduce the first line of premium carbon-fiber tripods and accessories that meet the Really Right Stuff design and quality standards.

apex lock system. our solid aluminum apex has a high strength stainless steel ring that mechanically locks into place with set screws. In the locked position, all set screw heads are flush or slightly below the outside surface of the apex ring. In order for the platform or column to be removed, all three set screws must be loosened sufficiently to allow the Suregrip apex lock Ring to clear the corresponding channel in the platform/column. this gives the photographer a visual safety indicator. carry your tripod over your shoulder with complete confidence.

OFFSET LEG JOINTS tripods must occasionally withstand tremendous bending and torsion loads. It is crucial that the angle stops and all other structural joints are well supported. our tripod has offset leg joints to align the apex with both the angle stops and leg walls. this allows loads to be transferred straight through the strongest points of the structure, while providing greatest possible vibration damping. another benefit is that the tripod is more compact when collapsed.

RATCHETING ANGLE STOP When setting the leg angles, it is important that the angle stop be fully seated into position. on the tVc-33 it is simple. Just pull out the stop, raise the leg, and it will automatically engage into place beginning at the highest setting. Pulling the legs back down will ratchet the stop into place at the lower settings. this makes it fast, simple, keeps your fingers safe from pinches, and reassures that your tripods leg angles are set properly.

TVC-34 VERSA TRIpOD 4 sections/leg, extends to 54 inches.

RUBBER TWIST LOCKS Because of the built in anti-rotation of the carbon fiber legs, the twist lock knobs can be rotated independently. the textured semi-hard rubber exterior allows for easy adjustments and outstanding grip with or without gloves.

WEIGHT HOOK Hanging a weight enhances the stability of your tripod by keeping it firmly anchored to the ground. Hang a camera bag, water bottle, or even a carabiner.

THE NEW MID-SIzED SOLUTION


Hot on the heels of the tVc-33 Versa tripod are our tVc-23 and tVc-24. Sized to perfectly complement our BH-40 ballhead, our Series 2 tripods are smaller and lighter than our Series 3 pods. they represent an evolutionary step in camera support, offering the benefits of both a compact traveler and a Versa-style tripod, all in one. Every structural and technological innovation found in the tVc-33 has been carried over, including our "big and thin" carbon fiber tubes and Suregrip apex lock system. our unique Series 2 accessories further expand the utility of these tripods. add a Quick column for more height, or use a leveling Base for instant leveling. optionally, add the leveling Base to the Quick column and give your tripod an adjustable height leveling base! No other tripod in the world offers this versatility.
Joe leaves the field after shooting panos with our new PG-02 LLR Pano-Gimbal head. Other gear in use is our TVC-23 tripod with TA-2-QC Quick Column, TA-2-LB Leveling Base, and MPR-CL II. Tripod feet were replaced with TA-3-FRC Rock Claws.

FINISH

Type III Hardcoat Anodizing vs. Powder Coating


anodizing produces a surface that is embedded in the metal, and not just a superficial coating. Really Right Stuff anodizes all aluminum parts because it gives greater wear, puncture, and corrosion resistance compared to other processes like powder coating.

MACHINING

CNC vs. Cast Metal:


computer Numerical controlled (cNc) milling machines can precisely sculpt parts out of solid metal with extreme precision. this affords excellent control in the design, fit, and finish of every metal part found on a RRS tripod. other tripod manufacturers employ mold casting to mass produce metal parts. We use cNc so we can maintain tighter quality control over every single part throughout its making.

MATERIALS

TVC-24 VERSA TRIpOD 4 sections/leg, extends to 49.2 inches.

6061 - T6 Billet Aluminum vs. Cast Magnesium


We use 6061-t6 billet aluminum, a special tempered alloy that is nearly twice as strong as die-cast magnesium

CARBON FIBER LEGS the next evolution in carbon fiber tripod leg design: Big and thin. RRS tripod legs have a large outer diameter and a wall thickness of only 0.04 inches. they far surpass our competition in strength-to-weight ratio.

INCREDIBLE CRUSH RESISTANCE In a 3point crush test, our Series 3 carbon fiber tube withstood a central load nearly double our closest competitor! ULTIMATE VIBRATION DAMPING Vibration damping is crucial for tack-sharp images. the Really Right Stuff t Vc-33 cuts down tremendously on sensor vibration thanks to our big and thin carbon fiber tubes and bulk-mass joint support design.

MC-34 MONOPOD & SAFARI GE AR TrIPOdS

MC-34 MONOPOd
THE NEW STANDARD
the Mc-34 is our answer to your demands for a high capacity, feature rich monopod. the carbon fiber tubes are crafted from the same Big & thin technology that has made our Versa tripods so successful. Each Pod also benefits from the same advanced leg-lock technology and anti-twist tubing. Key Features:

SAFArI GEAr
THE ANDY bIGGS SAFARI RIG
Renowned photo safari leader and Really Right Stuff user andy Biggs approached us a couple of years ago about developing an adaptable support system he could recommend to his clients. thus began our quest to design safari gear that will deliver unsurpassed long lens support in a demanding african safari environment. our gear combines the mobility of a monopod with the stability of a tripod while maintaining a compact and lightweight setup in a vehicle. the andy Biggs Safari Rig consists of multiple components that can be used separately or in combination. Using custom quick release mechanisms, the monopod easily detaches from the vehicle when you need to roam and allows you to return to the vehicle and your former setup effortlessly. the Rig consists of a Monopod clamp, one or more Ball clamps, a Safari clamp, and our ta-2-lB Series 2 leveling Base. Key Features:

50 pound load capacity yet weighs only 1lb, 7.8oz (675g). accepts all Really Right Stuff tripod accessory feet. Molded neoprene grip. Swiveling adjustable handstrap is pliable.

combine our monopod with our MH-01 monopod head for the perfect ultra-mobile, high capacity support solution. See page 25 for monopod packages with our MH-01 monopod head.

Monopod clamp collars the top tube of the monopod securely and adjusts to a range of tube diameters. Multiple tapped holes accept Safari Rig attachments. Ball clamps resemble our BH-25 in size & design. their ability to pan and articulate allows for both height and angle adjustments; secure your monopod practically anywhere. Safari clamp is extremely rugged and highly versatile. Intended to secure heavy gear to the vertical or horizontal rail in a safari vehicle, the Safari clamp will just as easily grasp non-uniform supports like branches, posts, and table tops. AbOVE: Joe field tested our Safari Rig prototype in the Okavango Delta while on safari with Andy Biggs, August 2010. The Rig can be seen here supporting our PG02LLR PanoGimbal head. bELOW: Shooting from the vehicle while on safari are Joan, Joe, and seated in front is James Weiss, owner of Eyes on Africa.

leveling base on a monopod? Might sound odd, but a rigid monopod is unable to make even minor leveling adjustments in response to changing terrain. our ta-2-lB leveling base mounted to your monopod will deliver 15 of float; rapid locking mechanism makes quick adjustments fast and smooth.

BH-55: FuLL-SIZEd BALLHEAd


the BH-55 is the culmination of years of iterative development based on first-hand experience and abundant input from seasoned professionals and enthusiasts. our goal was to build the perfect general-purpose ballhead. our premise was that aesthetics neednt play second fiddle to functionality, that operation should be intuitive and predictable, and that your investment should be rewarded with years of satisfaction. Extensive field use has proven the utility of our innovative design. the BH-55 delivers solid performance in all weather and temperature ranges. Its low profile, precision control knobs, rugged housing, and state of the art quickrelease clamps make our BH-55 the ballhead of choice for both seasoned professionals and enthusiastic amateurs. Renowned photographers who make their living using our ballhead include george lepp, John Shaw, Peter lik, Marc Muench, Moose Peterson, Norbert Wu, Joe and Mary ann McDonald, Frans lanting, Kennan Ward, adam Jones and Doug gardner, art Wolfe, trey Ratcliff, and many, many others.

all body control knobs are captive and have enough clearance between the knob and body outboard of the o-ring seal to allow easy cleaning in case of fouling.

large main locking knob incorporates stainless steel ballbearings for a lifetime of silky smooth control. Drag set control with laser-engraved indicator scale allows precise, highly repeatable tension adjustment for any given load if one desires constant friction on the ball. Exclusive drum and symmetrical progressive band brake securely locks panning base to the body with no drifting of the image circle. Base is laser engraved in 2.5 increments.

BH-40: MId-SIZEd BALLHEAd


bH-40 LR II comes with B2 AS II clamp

the 40 millimeter diameter ball is hollow & easily handles pro SlR bodies with medium telephoto lenses and the occasional 500mm/f4. Dual drop notches allow camera to be tilted 90 over into vertical position or forward to shoot downward without repositioning the ballhead. Both the control knob and main locking lever are captive and uniquely shaped to reduce confusion during the heat of battle. Main locking lever is spring loaded. Reposition it in 60 increments to maximize clearance. Simply pull the lever out, reorient, and release; allow spring-loaded retraction feature to pull lever back into place.

the BH-40 is as lightweight and compact as possible without sacrificing any of the functionality that makes our full-size BH-55 the favorite ballhead of discriminating professional and avid photographers worldwide. our bestselling BH-40 lR is just a tad over 1 pound (479g). It is perfect as a traveling/backpacking head for popular light to mid-sized gear such as 70 -200mm/f2.8 and 300mm/f4 lenses, yet even robust enough for occasional use with full-sized 500mm/f4 lenses. at only 3" high, the BH-40 lR is the most compact ballhead in its class but delivers large-size performance and features. It perfectly complements Really Right Stuff Versa Series 1 & 2 tripods (or gitzo Series-1 and -2 tripods). the BH-40 main lock lever is longer on one end, and its shape makes it easy to crank down and apply enough torque to solidly lock the ball under any load; t-lever freely clears tripod platforms with diameters smaller than 2.7-inches (68mm). lever can be easily re-positioned for better accessibility. See why Scott Kelby, of Kelby training, fell in love with his BH-40 and called it the ballhead of the gods.

our customers begged us to develop a robust, well machined and smooth operating monopod head to use with their largest telephoto lenses. the MH-01 High capacity Monopod Head is the answer. We conservatively rate this monopod head at 75 pounds; more than you will ever possibly require. Yet the MH-01 is only 8.8 ounces and compact enough to fit in a smaller lens compartment in your camera bag. It features an RRS-compatible dovetail on the foot to add versatility. carry it along for use with your gimbal head when you need to switch to a non-tripod-collared lens without having to completely remove (and then subsequently replace) the gimbal head from/to the tripod. the MH-01 allows you to conveniently tilt the camera left/right while using the gimbal head for up down tilting. all current generation Really Right Stuff full-size clamps can be installed on the MH-01. But use B2-Pro II, B2 aS II, or B2-40 lR clamps for dual orientation either parallel or perpendicular to the tilt. the + groove on the bottom of these clamps nests securely with bosses on the MH-01. Use included hex key to loosen mounting screw and change clamp orientation. other full-size clamps can also be mounted on the MH-01, but can only be oriented parallel to the tilt. giant knurled tilt-lock knob is easy to grip, even with gloves on.

SOME GUIDELINES AND COMMENTS


you choose depends upon your camera and lenses, and the

SuPPOrT SuGGESTIONS
THE RIGHT HEAD AND LEGS FOR YOU
In our experience most shooters fall into one of these four categories: ultra-light, compact, mid-sized, or full-sized. Weve made some support suggestions based upon the gear you shoot with. Keep in mind that these suggestions are intended to be a starting point in your search for an ideal support system. If you find yourself wavering between one setup or the other, ask yourself a quick question: Do you lean in the direction of a heavier, more robust setup? or do you prefer the idea of a lighter, more portable setup? this can often help you make your decision. But if youre still undecided, dont hesitate to give us a ring and ask us for our opinion. Were certain to have one!

tripod legs you choose depend upon which head you pick. All components should complement each other.

Load capacity ratings for tripods and tripod heads can be confusing. There is no standard method to determine load rating, so comparison among models can be difficult. Thats why Really Right Stuff provides head & leg recommendations based upon your current camera and lenses, how youll be using the gear, and how you might be using the gear in the future. We prefer high performance carbon fiber tripods with our ballheads; theyre light, compact, and with proper care deliver a lifetime of use.

MID-SIzED
Is right for you if... You commonly shoot with small and moderate lenses and you want a capable combo that will be comfortable at eye height and can handle long exposures without vibration, moderate gear loads, and the elements.

Common Gear: Nikon D7000/D700/D3-series or canon 5DMkII/60D/7D/1D-series; medium format. Your biggest everyday lens is a 70 -200mm/f2.8 or a 300mm/f4. You may occasionally use a 300mm/f2.8 - 500mm/f4 lens.

Favor 3 section/leg tripodsthere are

only two joints per leg to operate every time you extend and collapse the tripod (remember that each joint is a potential point of weakness if not properly tightened). Since a 4 section/leg tripod has one extra joint per leg, they can be more of a hassle. But do consider the 4 section/leg models for travel and portability. Their overall folded length is shorter than 3 section/leg models, so they fit into smaller spaces.

Support System Options: tVc-23 or tVc-24 tripod with BH-40 ballhead. Packages Offered: tVc-23/BH-40 lR or t Vc-24/BH-40 lR; see p32.

ULTRA-LIGHT
Is right for you if... You want a very small ballhead for backpacking/travel, or for mounting a strobe or other accessory. Common Gear: Point-n-shoot or small DSlR. Support System Options: gitzo Series 0 tripod or t Vc-13 tripod (available late 2011) with BH-25 ballhead.

FULL-SIzED
Is right for you if... You want a very robust ballhead that can handle studio work, macro setups, and gimbal head attachments. Common Gear: Nikon D3-series or canon 7D/60D/1D-series; Medium & large format. You regularly use a 300mm/f2.8 lens and shoot with lots of heavy artillery (500mm- 600mm). Support System Options: Really Right Stuff t Vc-33/34 tripods or tP-243 ground pod with BH-55 ballheads or Pg- 02 pano gimbal heads.

Consider that you really head/leg setup if you shoot with both short lenses and heavy artillery (500mm600mm), because the compromise implicit with a single setup is too severe.

may need more than one

COMpACT
Is right for you if... You want a compact ballhead for travel and portability, or you always shoot with lightweight gear. Common Gear: Nikon D50/D90 or canon 50D/60D. Support System Options: Really Right Stuff t Vc-13 tripod (available late 2011) with BH-30 ballhead.

Packages Offered: tVc-33/BH-55 or tVc-33/Pg- 02; see p33.

HANdY TIP
Joe is 59 and could comfortably use any of these tripods. Choose a tripod that is no more than 6 to 10 shorter than you are and you wont have to bend over to look through the viewfinder.

Joe Johnson proudly displays Really Right Stuff Versa tripods mounted with our patented ballheads. From left to right: TVC23 tripod with BH40 LR ballhead, TVC33 tripod with BH55 LR ballhead, TVC24 tripod with BH40 LR ballhead.

all Really Right Stuff clamps are precision-machined in the USa from solid aircraft-grade aluminum and finished in a beautiful matte-black anodize. Excess mass is removed to minimize weight and all corners are radiused for comfort and beauty. Most clamps are contoured to incorporate a high contrast spirit level for quick initial leveling in the field, and safety stop relief grooves allow for generous adjustability. all Really Right Stuff clamps are guaranteed (materials & workmanship) for 5 years. Two Clamping Styles: clamp jaws open and close in one of two ways: by twisting a knurled knob on our tried & true screw-knob clamps; or by flipping a single lever on our innovative, patented lever-release clamps. Two Mounting Styles: all clamps mount onto heads in one of two ways: they either spin onto an exposed male threaded stud (threaded either -20 or 3 8-16), or they drop onto a female tapped socket (tapped either -20 or metric 6-1.0) and are secured with a screw from above. choose models with a threaded center hole if spinning clamp onto a threaded stud. choose models with a non-threaded (thru-hole) center if mounting clamp on any ballhead from Really Right Stuff, any current model arca-Swiss, and some Manfrotto models. See clamp Selector table (p39) for help in choosing the proper clamp. Various Lengths: our mini (1.5), 50mm and 60mm length clamps are suitable for most photography. our longer clamps, with 80mm (3.2-inch) long clamping jaws, are suitable for large format or super-telephotosheavy artillery. Due to wide variations in other brands of arca-Swiss compatible plates, we recommend using our lever-release clamps only with Really Right Stuff or Wimberley brand quick-release plates. If you own other brand plates, see the note about our plate exchange policy at bottom of page 39.

Many Manfrotto ballheads can be modified in a similar manner, but the tapped female socket in the stem is metric 6-1.0. Buy our B2 aS II clamp and fix to the head using a M6-1.0 flathead metric machine screw. Use loctite type 242 (blue fluid, medium strength) to keep clamp from twisting; use loctite type 271 (red fluid, high strength) threadlock liquid for permanent mount. See page 80 for all hardware and single applications of loctite.

Mounting Tip: If you have a lever-release clamp, swing the lever fully open and top load your plate. But if youre using a screw-knob clamp, its too slow to open the jaws wide enough for top loading. Its faster to slide a plate into the clamp from the endtilt the front edge of the plate downward, toward the clamp, and engage the front dovetail so that it rides underneath the front corner of the clamps jaw. Keep that front edge of the plate in contact with the clamp corner and then level the plate, and swing the plates rear dovetail into the clamp.

Installation Notes
If you intend to convert an existing ballhead to accept our clamp, check to see if the round platform atop the head can be removed. Some ballheads have a platform that will freely unscrew from a female socket, tapped 3 8-16, in the stem. Buy our 3 8-16 stainless steel studorder Stud, $5.00 to mate the clamp directly to that stem without the platform.

FOR ALL REALLY RIGHT STUFF pLATES

the graceful patented Stainless Steel S-shaped cam-locking lever provides desirable benefits over traditional screw-knob clamps: Easy Top-Loading: In one quick action, the clamp can go from closed to fully open, allowing easy top-loading of Really Right Stuff quick-release plates. No more lost shots while fumbling to feed the plates into the end of the clamp. Visual Confirmation of Lock Position: You can readily observe if the lever is locked, half-open, or fully open. Low Profile: the lever does not protrude above or below the profiles of the clamp, and in the closed position, the lever closely hugs the contours of the clamp. this makes it less of a weed catcher in the field and reduces the chance of being damaged in a fall. Less Abrasive, No Twisting: the smooth contours of the lever are less abrasive than standard knurled knobs, and for those with arthritic hands, the graceful lever cams open and close with just finger force. Super Tough, Reliable: the Stainless Steel lever delivers a lifetime of wear and rides on a self-lubricating, wear-resistant bronze bearing surface. Delivers 50lbs of holding power under full compression (the fully closed position) with our plates. this is more than sufficient for any practical photographic application. Use Lever-Release Clamps with Really Right Stuff plates: Not all arca-style quick-release plates are machined to the same exacting specifications as Really Right Stuff plates. For flawless operation in our lever-release clamps, we recommend only Really Right Stuff or Wimberley quick-release plates.
FAS Fore-Aft Sliding Double Clamp b2 LLR II center threaded 3/8, two 20 holes spaced 45mm b2-40 LR

traditional screw-knob quick-release clamps can sustain as much weight and stress as any tripod head can bear and then some! also perfect for monopod use. Captive Knob: Knob stops at maximum opening: cannot be lost in the field! Refined Knurling: Beautifully contoured with radiused edges and a domed end to improve aesthetics and feel. Light Weight: Screw-knob clamps are about 15% lighter than their lever-release counterparts. Use Screw-Knob Clamps with All Arca-style Plates: Screw-knob clamps are more forgiving of plate width than our lever-release style clamps. any quick-release plate known as arca-Swiss style, no matter the manufacturer, will work great in our screw-knob clamps. this includes plates made by Kirk, Foba, Markins, acratech, Novoflex, and arca-Swiss. Note that gitzo, Bogen, or Manfrotto plates are not arca-style plates. But you can retrofit your head to accept the Really Right Stuff quickrelease system by referencing our chart on page 39.

MINI-CLAMPS
Made for minimal clearance, weight, and compact size, our 1inch mini-length screw-knob clamps excel for minimal clearance applications. the knob of the mini-clamp bears directly against the clamp jaw and is captivecant be lost in the field. B2-FAB is our mini-clamp with one centralized -20 threaded socket. Note that two small tabs extend from the bottom of the clamp. these tabs drop into a slot to prevent the clamp from twisting when mounted on a rail, or can nest with any aS clamp for back-to-back mounting. B2-mAS is our mini-clamp with one non-threaded countersunk hole. Mounts with flat head screw from above (accepts -20 includedor M6 only). the + shaped machined recess on bottom of clamp can mate tongue-and-groove style with bottom of B2-FaB.

WHICH CLAMp IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Clamp Selector Table: trying to add a clamp to your existing head? the list below covers the most common ballheads currently on the market. the clamp options for each ballhead are listed on the right. Note that some heads or platforms may require additional mounting hardware for installation. See page 80 for a complete list of compatible hardware & tools. Should you choose our patented lever-release clamp or go with a traditional screw-knob clamp? Most of our shooters choose a lever-release clamp for its ease of use, the solid snap and feel of the lever when the clamp is fully closed, the ability to topload, and because its simply faster in the field. all plates from Really Right Stuff and Wimberley perform equally well in our lever-release clamps. But there are limited circumstances when a screw-knob clamp is a better choice.

Sliding clamps mounted on rails offer great versatility; they can be quickly shifted along the rail to change positioning, and then locked into place.

Choose a screw-knob clamp if:

If you want more clamping force than 50 lbs of holding pressure under full compression. If you have a variety of mounting plates from different manufacturers*. In particular, plates from arca-Swiss, Markins and acra-tech have shallow dovetails and don't work well with our lever-release clamps.

192 precision plus package Miniclamps can be oriented parallel or perpendicular to rail.

If you have an arca-Swiss monorail camera. If you're shooting from a monopod. With a small turn of the knob, the jaws of a screw-knob clamp can be cracked open ever so slightly to adjust the balance point of the load. When halfway open, a lever-release clamp allows the load to freely slide.

MOuNTING PLATES
FOR CAMERA bODIES, bATTERY GRIpS, COLLARED TELEpHOTO LENSES
our customized plates are all arca-Swiss style quick-release compatible. they are highly optimized in design and are precision machined from solid blocks of 6061-t6 aluminum. our plates are smaller, lighter, and more conforming in shape than those from other sources. all corners are beautifully radiused and feature precisely contoured anti-twist flanges for dedicated mating. this non-pivoting design serves to align the plate, and effectively prevents twisting. Really Right Stuff plates intentionally avoid the use of any cork or rubber-type padding. there are two very good reasons for this:

Direct mating of the camera body or lens foot and the mounting platewithout any intervening sponginess improves the mass coupling. this assures best vibration damping, and enhances rigidity.

By providing a plate where the flat metal mounting surface is in direct contact with the tripod socket, there is inherent protection against the possibility of over-torque on installation.

We do make very few exceptions and use cork compound when the disadvantages are out weighed by other factors.

QUICk-RELEASE pLATES Each camera or collared lens that you want to mount on your ballhead will need its own mounting plate. Image below shows a camera body fitted with a conventional body plate mounted in one of our leverrelease clamps.

CAMER A BODY & LENS PL ATES CAMEr A BOdY & COLL ArEd LENS MOuNTING PL ATES

Dovetail Orientation:
the dovetail groove on the bottom of each plate has an orientation that is either left/right, fore/aft, or bidirectional (runs in both directions). In general, camera body plates slide left-to-right so that the camera can be centered in the clamp. lens collar Foot Mounts slide fore-and-aft in the clamp so that a good balance point can be achieved. Bidirectional dovetails are very versatile, but since the plate must fit the clamp in both directions, the dovetail is square and there are no safety stop screws.

Saftey Stops:
Safety stop screws prevent plates from slipping through the clamp if the clamp is not fully closed. on conventional camera body plates, the safety stop screw is on the right side of the plate and prevents free fall when the tripod head is flopped into the drop notch for vertical format. lens collar Foot Mounts include two safety stops, one each fore-and-aft. No need to worry that youll accidentally push the lens through the clamp.

Quickly mount your camera on your tripod in either landscape or portrait by using an l-plate. Shaped like an l, the plate has two sets of mounting dovetails; mount using either set. No need to flop your camera over & down into the drop notch to go vertical. Instead, use an l-plate and save yourself the hassle and time youd have to spend recomposing. also, an l-plate keeps your load centereddirectly atop the tripods apexwhere you can retain the best vibration damping & mass coupling.

Screw sizes are either -20 or 3/8-16. Some plates and rails come with more than one screw. Hex key tools for installation are included with every plate.

INSERT PHOTO OF FLASH BRACKET 8.5 by 8.5

FLASH BrACKETS FOr OFF-CAMErA FLASH


the use of a strobe to supplement ambient light can solve many common problems for photographers afield. While the need for flash may be obvious in closeup and macro applications, the benefits of flash are less apparent when the main exposure is based on existing daylight, as the image at left illustrates. In these situations, a strobe can be skillfully applied to provide critical foreground fill. add a catchlight in the eye of wildlife. Fill lighting is often necessary to reduce excessive contrast, and flash is the only practical solution to this problem. the need for adding fill light is obvious in portrait photography (people and animals). less obvious is the need for flash fill to better balance a shaded foreground with a brighter background. Judicious use of gentle strobe fill can dramatically improve the image, compensate for narrow contrast ranges and extend the photographic possibilities. a well-positioned strobe can also add that pleasing catchlight in the subjects eyes, especially when lighting conditions are overcast, foggy, or backlit. Without an eye spark, the subject looks dead. any strobe can be used to produce this critical catchlight if the strobe is always positioned atop the lens. Use our flash brackets to deliver all these key benefits. Now the strobe can always remain atop the lens for pleasing shadow lines whether the camera is swiveled to horizontal or vertical. WPF-QR for Event & Location Shooting this rugged unit is the most portable flash bracket available anywhere. Designed for use with shorter, non-collared lenses, this bracket mounts to the side dovetail of our l-plates (l-plate required; purchase separately). Bracket snaps into place and stays locked until the spring-loaded release button is pressed. Even with the heaviest flash, this bracket will never twist or come loose. Folds completely flat for compact storage in your camera bag. B-Series For Telephoto Flash Mount Without Tools all flash brackets feature a built-in quick-release clamp for toolless mounting. Simply open the clamp and slide onto dovetail (rails for B-Series brackets must have double dovetail). Brackets precisely accept a Nikon or canon off-camera strobe cord (other cords may fit, but may not seat flush). Buy our custom adapters to fit Quantum Qflash, Nikon SB-R200 Speedlight Head, and Nikon Sc-29 strobe cord. our brackets are elegant, no compromise designs machined from solid 6061-t6 aluminum for lowest profile and minimum weight. Produced with pride here on the central coast of california. NEW Completely Redesigned Orbiting Tilt Flash Mount this new Flash Mount incorporates our patent-pending quick-release system for strobes and strobe cords. No more annoying thumbwheel to lock your strobe cord in place. Instead, install a thin adapter to the bottom of your strobe cord or accessory and snap it in place. to release, press the QR latch at back of Flash Mount. this new QR system is fast, easy, and rock solid. Flash Mounts now tilt forward up to 90 for better beam coverage in closeup work; backward tilt up to 90 for better bounce flash control. tilt lock Knob has also been improved for positive tilt lock at any angle. as always, orbiting Flash Mount can be positioned anywhere along the hoop. Silky-smooth operation and positive detents allows Flash Mount to snap into position on the go. Hoops are also reversible: mount with the hoop on the left, or with the hoop on the right. Depress the stop button, pop off the flash head, turn it around, and re-install.
NEW pATENT-pENDING QR SYSTEM FOR STRObES Strobe cords now snap fit into Flash Mount for fast mounting. Install FAQR1 adapter (included with flash bracket) to bottom of strobe cord and press into place.

PANOrAMAS MAdE SIMPLE

kEEp IT LEVEL
Panorama photography has emerged as a growing passion that any shooter can readily achieve. Digital panoramas are created by shooting multiple overlapping images, and then stitching them together with software. to shoot an exceptional panorama that is a treat to display, two primary factors must be carefully considered: leveling and elimination of parallax. overlapping images for single-row panoramas are typically shot from left to right in a single row, keeping the camera perfectly level while panning. Keeping the camera level maintains alignment of vertical and horizontal objects, making the stitching process easier. Simplify your life and buy our Pcl-1 panning clamp. With this clamp mounted on your ballhead, youre level in just moments. No need for bulky leveling bases or panoramaspecific heads. leveling is now quick and painless.

ELIMINATE pARALLAX
Image parallax occurs when near and far objects dont line up in the same location in overlapping images. Eliminate the effects of parallax by placing the optical center of the lens (not the camera) directly over the point of rotation. But how? add one of our nodal slides. these long rails with built-in clamps mount to the bottom of your camera body plate and are the perfect way to shift your camera and lens back so that the optical center of the lens, commonly called the nodal point, can be correctly positioned directly over the pivot center.

bACk TO CONTENTS WHY USE A pANNING CLAMp?


MpR-CL II Nodal Slide > a panning clamp simplifies the number of steps required to level your gear. No matter what angle your tripod and ballhead is positioned, just move the ball until the panning clamp is level. lock down the ball and pan atop the ball. get level in just one step. pCL-1 in Action When you use the Really Right Stuff panning clamp, your tripod legs don't need to be level. Just level the panning clamp! PCL1 fitted with PCLDVTL shown mounted in BH55 LR ballhead.

pARALLAX & NODAL pOINT EXpLAINED


these concepts can be bewildering, but their influence on creating seamless panoramas can be demonstrated with a simple experiment: With one eye closed, extend your arm and point your thumb up. line your thumb up with the side of a door frame. Now, turn your head left and right. Notice how the door frame shifts as you turn your head? this is an example of image parallax due to the fact that the nodal point (the optical center) of your eye is not over the center of your head rotation. You can also do this experiment with a camera and attached lens. Pivot the camera left and right over its tripod mount and you will notice the same effect as background objects shift relative to foreground objects (say, a nearby fence post versus a distant fence post). But if you pivot the camera at a specific point under the lens, youll notice that the near and far objects remain aligned. this specific point of rotation is the entrance pupil of the lens (commonly called the nodal point, or optical center). the idea is that parallax can be eliminated by mounting the camera on the ballhead so the nodal point of the lens sits directly over the rotation axis of the ballhead.

NOdAL SLIdES
Use a nodal slide to eliminate parallax. a nodal slide allows you to pull the camera backwards so that the optical center of the lens can be positioned directly over the axis of rotation (in image below, the center of the panning clamp). our Pano Elements Package comes standard with our MPR-CL II nodal slide, but we offer other slides to meet the needs of every application. Many of these slides also make great gross focusing sliders for macro work.

HOw TO SHOOT A PANO


let's walk through shooting a single row pano, step by step, using our Pano Elements Package, a ballhead, and a Really Right Stuff quick-release plate on your camera.
STEp 4 position Nodal Slide Loosen the clamp on the PCL1, and slide the MPRCL II fore or aft until you've aligned the optical center of the lens with the correct laserengraved index mark on the PCL1 panning clamp. Tighten clamp securely. See our website for detailed instructions on finding the nodal point for your lens.

192 precision plus package Miniclamps can be oriented parallel or perpendicular to rail. Perfect if shooting panos with collared & noncollared lenses.

STEp 1 Mount Nodal Slide Mount panning clamp onto head. Open panning clamp and topload MPRCL II nodal slide. Exact position isn't important. Tighten clamp securely.

192 Duo package B2Duo clamp is adjustable fore/aft and accepts plates* with fore/aft orientation. Great for shooting panos with collared telephoto lenses.
*Compatible only with Really Right Stuff & Wimberley plates.

192 FAS package FAS Clamp is adjustable fore/aft and accepts plates with left/right orientation. Index marker assures repeatable positioning.

STEp 2 Get it Level Loosen the ballhead so that the ball moves freely, and shift ball until the large, high contrast spirit level in the MPRCL II nodal slide indicates level. Always opt to reference the larger spirit level of the MPRCL II rather than the much smaller level of the panning clamp. Lock down the ball (make sure the ballhead's panning base is also locked).

STEp 5 Camera Settings Set exposure mode to Manual. Not sure what exposure to set? Pan your scene and snap a few images in Aperture Priority; set an aperture that will give you the depth of field that you want. Assuming you're shooting digital, review images and compare the shutter speed that your camera chose for the series; select a shutter speed that will be acceptable across the entire image. Now switch your camera to Manual and set both aperture and shutter speed. Turn off Auto WhiteBalance. Instead, set the White Balance manually. For most landscape scenes, the Sunny setting is just fine. Now you're ready to shoot!

pRECISION-MACHINED IN THE USA

the absorbing realm of closeup photography (meaning image scales from 1:10 to 1:1) and photomacrography (meaning image magnification from 1:1 to 20:1 or more) often calls for special techniques and special tools to achieve optimum results. For nature and wildlife subjects, it is prudent to plan for up to 2X in the field, and to 4X in the studio. In the closeup range to 1:5 (20% of life size), conventional optics and normal techniques suffice, but the going gets tougher as the subject gets smaller. these problems involve: gaining sufficient working distance, focusing accuracy, depth of field, resolution loss due to diffraction effect, desired final (enlarged) image resolution, and, of course, lighting. Many books have been written that address solutionswe recommend John Shaws books. While screw-on closeup lenses (particularly the special two element types corrected for use with telephoto lenses, e.g. Nikons 3t, 4t, 5t, 6t and canon 500D) and supplementary extension tubes and teleconverters will get you close, there will come a time when every serious closeup shooter feels the irresistible lust to invest in what the trade calls a macro lens. these are special closeup lenses (also quite usable for general photography) that are highly corrected for close range imaging, and are capable of focusing all the way from infinity down to 1:2, or even to 1:1, all by themselves.

No tripod collar: Most 105mm macros dont have a rotating collar. given the difficulties implicit in careful closeup focusing and framing, its truly agonizing to begin all over again when you want to swing from horizontal to vertical aspect (although much less so if your camera is equipped with an RRS l-plate). Beware of the poorly executed collar on the original canon 100mm/f2.8 lens (non-IS version): its much too close to the lens mount, and the lens plate on the foot will hit certain camera body grips when rotating from horizontal to vertical.

these shortcomings are all neatly solved by the 180-200mm macros. they offer double the working distance, tight acceptance angles for easy background control, superior balance & stability, and the convenience of a tripod collar. love those 200mm macros! another advantage gained when using any 200mm focal length lens for closeups is the more evenly distributed lighting that the subject receives when using flash. the lens longer working distance mitigates inverse square law light fall-off. a strobe can be applied with more natural results and theres less background light fall-off.

Macro Flash
In closeup work, flash will often be needed to permit the use of small (f/11-16) apertures to assure adequate depth-of-field at an acceptable exposure duration. alsocloseup subjects may require flash fill to reduce excessive contrast, or to produce catchlights, or to enhance modeling. It is seldom viable, when working close, to mount a strobe in the cameras hot shoe. that position is too low, does not offer the needed 15-30 tilt for beam aiming, and is off-axis in vertical aspect. add one of our flash brackets for more effective flash placement. More than one off-camera remote strobe may be necessary to lighten a dark background, or to provide rimlight, or backlight, on the subject; to accomplish this, add a second flash mount to your flash bracket.

Macro Lenses
the most generally popular macro lens is about 50 to 60mm in focal length. thats good for stamps & coins, but lousy for nature and wildlife work. that focal length is too short to provide adequate working distance, and the angle of coverage is too wide to isolate the subject. the next step is a macro lens in a 100mm to 105mm focal

length. these are better, but still entail a lot of compromise in actual usage. Heres why:

Working distance: Its simply not adequate for live subjects. the modern 105mm focal length macro lens turns out to be 80mm when its close-focused.

angle of coverage: Its too wide to provide good control of background selectivity. Its very difficult to truly isolate the subjectmake it pop.

B150-B MACrO FOCuSING rAIL


Remember that as you focus a true macro lens, magnification changes. to maintain your desired magnification, you need to move the camera to obtain the correct focus point. this is an exercise in frustration without a macro focusing rail. the B150-B is our premium linear motion lead screw focusing stage and rail. the B150-B is designed to mate seamlessly with our quick-release system in as compact a package as possible. the bottom rail comprises a Really Right Stuff-compatible dovetail that mates with your ballhead clamp while the stage integrates our patented lever clamp that connects directly to your Really Right Stuff camera plate. camera to subject distance can be adjusted in minute increments for super-fine focus; lead screw delivers 1.25mm of travel per full revolution. Rough positioning is done in one of two ways: either press the stage release lever and slide the stage on top of the rail or loosen the jaws of the ballhead clamp and slide the rail within the jaws of the clamp. this compound adjustment feature effectively doubles the total gross adjustment range. turn the focus knob at the back or front of the rail for super-fine focusing. the entire assembly is compact and rock solid. Purchase dedicated body plate separately (see pages 44-47).
b150-b Shown Life Size

Make gross adjustment by shifting either the stage, rail, or both. Fine adjustment is made with the lead screw focusing stage, which provides additional 103mm of movement. total adjustment range is 231mm (9). laser-engraved index marks on clamp assist lateral positioning; one on center, two 24mm apart on center, and two 36mm apart on center. Rail is laser-engraved on both sides in 1mm increments.

MULTI-PURPOSE R AIL S AND CAMER A BARS r AILS, BArS & MACrO

Rails with slot include two -20 mounting screws; MPR-73 with 3 8 slot includes single 3 8-16 mounting screw. Rails are 1.5 wide (38mm) with one accessory socket and dual safety stops (but MPR-cl has only one). Rails are double-dovetail; MPR-192 & MPR-cl II are dual doubledovetails with high-contrast bullseye spirit level and laser-engraved scale in 1mm increments on both sides.

CAMErA BArS
our 28-inch, 18-inch and 10-inch camera Bars extend the utility of our multi-purpose rails. these long rails have beefy cross sections and dual dovetails for applications that demand zero deflection under maximum torque. Use when you need to work with two cameras mounted side-by-side, or as a macro focusing rail for greater than normal adjustment range. Paired with a robust ballhead, a camera bar can be used as a boom to cantilever the camera into positions that are difficult to get to with your tripod alone.
