This package includes a TVC-34L, our extra-tall Versa Series 3 Tripod teamed with the BH-55 LR Lever-Release Ballhead, our most popular tripod head. Ideal for all full-size gear combinations, including super telephoto lenses and medium-large format cameras. Speed, compact form and utmost reliability are the hallmark of the BH-55 LR Ballhead. TVC-34L Versa Series 3 Tripod

The TVC-34L is 10" (25cm) taller than our standard-height TVC-33 tripod at full extension. The extra height is ideal for very tall photographers, for use on uneven terrain or for situations that call for extra high support. 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, but their incredibly light weight also makes them easy to carry and use with all gear. BH-55 LR Lever-Release 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 LR features our patented B2-AS-II lever-release style quick-release clamp for optimum speed and security.

TVC-34L Versa Series 3 Tripod

  • 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.
  • Offset Leg Joints: Tripods must occasionally withstand tremendous bending and torsion loads. It is crucial that the leg angle stops and all other structural joints are well supported. 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
  • 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
  • Bulls-eye spirit level
  • 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.
