Our tripods are the cornerstone of Really Right Stuff and we are excited to announce the release of our new Mark 2 line. The Mark 2 tripods are faster and hold up better to the elements with improved ergonomics. We make sure our gear encourages rather than inhibits the creative process. The new Mark 2 tripods are proudly made in the USA. 



The TQC-14 Mk2 and TFC-14 Mk2 are our lightest 1 Series tripod. Weighing only 2.3-2.6 pounds yet capable of supporting 25 pounds. When ounces turn to pounds our 1 Series tripods are the most ideal for our most weight conscious outdoors man.  



 The TFC-14 Mk2 has all the features of the TQC-14 but swaps the quick-column apex for a fixed apex. The fixed apex cannot be used with accessories like a quick-column but packs smaller in diameter. For more info visit the page on the Fixed Apex Conversion Kit

TFC-14 Mk2 SOAR® Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod
  • Reversible Apex Stud: Can be flipped from a male 1/4"-20 to male 3/8"-16, or removed entirely for a female 1/4"-20 socket option.
  • Perimeter Mounting Options: Apex hosts three female 1/4"-20 perimeter mounting sockets to which accessories may be attached (including the RRS phone clamp & stand, allowing you to use a smartphone as a tethered control or preview monitor).
  • Removable Hand Strap: Eliminates need for additional weights. Use your own body weight against the strap to stabilize shots, and slip the strap over your hand when you're on the move for increased carrying security.
  • Ratcheting Angle Stops
  • Rubber Ball Feet: Large diameter teardrop shape keeps leg sidewalls from touching the ground even at the lowest settings and makes positive contact with the ground at virtually any angle.
  • Anodized, Type 3 Black
  • Twist Grip Leg Extension Locks: Ergonomic, textured knobs allow for easy adjustments and strong grip. Anti-twist leg sections mean each twist lock can be operated independently. Integrated wipers and o-rings help keep the locks cleaner longer.
