Since launching our first carbon fiber tripods in 2009, we have been dedicated to making the world’s finest tripods. With the help of our customers’ invaluable feedback, we continuously make improvements. After years of development, we are excited to present our new Mark 2 tripod line!



Improved ergonomics make operating the tripod more comfortable and seamless. Additional ¼”-20 sockets along the outside of the tripod’s apex allow you to attach optional accessories and shoulder-strap mounts. The Mark 2 tripods are faster to lock/unlock and hold up better to the elements. Redesigned twist-locks prevent grit and debris from contaminating the threads. We added a vent at the top of each leg to allow efficient air transfer when extending or collapsing, for rapid deployment and takedown. 



What hasn’t changed is our attention to detail, high-quality craftsmanship and commitment to proudly make and hand-assemble all our tripods in the USA.



The TVC-23 Mk2 Tripod is smaller and lighter than our Series 3 pods, and perfectly complement our BH-40 ballhead. They offer the benefits of both a compact traveler and a Versa-style tripod, all in one. 



The TFC-23 Mk2 Tripod includes most of the features from the TVC-23 Mk2 but swaps out the versa apex for a fixed apex. The fixed apex cannot use accessories like a quick-column but packs down considerably smaller in diameter.   



Mk2 Series 2 tripods are the perfect choice for light to mid-sized equipment combos. Given its high load capacity, a Versa Series 2 tripod is also a great solution for shooters who need maximum support but want to keep their tripod as portable as possible.



Our unique accessories further expand the utility of the TVC-23. 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!
