TVC-45: Versa series 4, 5 sections/leg


Out of Stock, Backorder OK

The TVC-45 is our maximum-height Versa Series 4 tripod. Conservatively rated to hold 100 pounds, the TVC-44 weighs only 6.9 pounds, is 84.5 inches tall and collapses to a mere 24.8 inches. All of the reliability, CNC-precision and beautiful craftsmanship that make RRS tripods coveted around the world are built into the Versa Series 4 tripods. The apex's large diameter accepts Really Right Stuff's 100mm video bowl and leveling base accessories. An extra wide apex-to-leg joint with CNC machined pivot bearings provides high torsional rigidity for solid video panning. Supporting 100 pound loads with the legs fully collapsed and splayed, the Versa Series 4 tripods have the highest stiffness-to-load ratio of all RRS carbon fiber tripods. The Versa Series 4 tripods accept a variety of accessories and Series 3 accessories (adapter may be required). When maximum support is required, this monster is rock-solid.
  • 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
  • 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.
