Series 3 Support Packages
SKU: Series 3 Support Packages
Versa Series 3 tripods are the perfect choice for all full-sized gear combos. They’re built for rock solid support of 500mm, 600mm & 800mm telephotos, gimbal heads, and large format cameras. They are incredibly light weight, making them easy to carry and use with all gear. BH-55 Pro Ballhead: A Really Right Stuff ballhead is the best choice for all general photography, and will give you fast and accurate control and solid support of your camera or lens. Aiming and horizon leveling can be accomplished as one instinctive motion, and rigid lockup takes just a quick twist of one control. As a result, our ballheads are faster to use and inherently more stable than 3-axis “pan-tilt" tripod heads. Since the ballhead profile is smaller and lacks the protruding handles, they are also much easier to carry and pack. The BH-55 Pro features our tried and true B2-Pro II screw-knob style quick-release clamp for utmost reliability and security.
Versa Series 3 Tripods:
Patented SureGrip Apex Lock System: Allows quick and absolutely secure change-out from a simple platform to a Versa Quick Column or Series 3 Leveling Base. Big & Thin carbon fiber legs: With a large outer diameter and wall thickness of only 0.04", our carbon fiber tubes far surpass the competition in strength-to-weight ratio. Offset Leg Joints: Our patented offset leg joints fully support the leg angle stops allowing loads to be transferred straight through the strongest members of the tripod. This also means the tripod is more compact when collapsed. Ratcheting Angle Stops: Just pull out the stop, raise the leg, and the stop will automatically engage into place beginning at the highest setting. Pulling the legs back down will ratchet the stop into place at each angle. This keeps your fingers safe from pinching and assures the best support. 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. CNC Machined: Excellent fit and finish of every metal part found on an RRS tripod. Other tripod manufacturers employ mold casting to mass produce metal parts, resulting in lower strength/quality pieces. Anodizing vs Powder Coating: Anodizing produces surface protection embedded into the metal, yielding superior wear and corrosion resistance versus a superficial coating. High-visibility bulls-eye spirit level embedded in the apex for accurate leveling. Twist Grip Leg Extension Locks: Textured semi-hard rubber allows for easy adjustments and strong grip. Anti-twist leg sections mean each twist lock can be operated independently.
Ergonomic design gives superior handling and unsurpassed reliability. Lowest profile in its class. Large main locking knob incorporates stainless steel ball bearings for a lifetime of silky smooth control. Dual drop-notches allow maximum flexibility for positioning the camera. Micrometer tension adjustment is repeatable and absolutely reliable. Optional precision panning base is finely laser-engraved at 2.5 degrees intervals and features our unique drum & brake design for effortless locking. All components are of the finest Really Right Stuff quality, machined from solid aircraft aluminum or stainless steel for maximum durability and minimum weight. Comes with screw knob or lever release clamp for tried and true clamping strength.
Wide, comfortable, adjustable length shoulder strap. Full length dual zipper with two opening options: unzip the entire length, or just open the top cap and pull your gear out "quiver style. Slim outside pocket; handy for card storage, batteries and more. Inside of the round lid is a mesh pocket with zipper closure. Covered ID pocket. Handles make it easy to pick up. Loop on end of bag makes it easy to grab and slide out. Protected by 1/2 inch thick Closed Cell Foam padding throughout.
