The Tripod Mount Ring C from Canon is designed for the 70-300mm lenses. The ring makes rotating your lens easier and the built-in tripod collar improves lens balance by screwing into the tripod mount.

Improves Lens Balance
The ring secures your lens to the camera's tripod
Thumbscrews Tighten And Loosen Ring
Having thumbscrews control the ring make it easy to adjust the tripod ring on the go
Gives Your Camera Setup Better Balance
The ring adds stability to your camera and lens. Due to its weight, when the lens is mounted with a camera on a tripod, the center of gravity is shifted to the lens. The ring attaches to the tripod and can be shifted to any position on the lens, ensuring the weight is evenly distributed
Rotation
Having the camera secured with a ring around the lens makes it possible to rotate the lens between landscape and portrait modes without removing the camera from the tripod. The friction thumbscrews can then be tightened to secure the camera in the desired position. When not needed, the ring can be rotated to an out of the way position
Hinged Design
The hinge provides the ability to keep the lens attached to the camera while disconnecting the lens from the tripod
Lens Compatibility Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Telephoto Lens
Tripod Mount Thread Size 1/4 - 20"

For some people it may be debatable as to why you need this piece of equipment.
The lens is IS and the centre of balance/rotation is not way off without this.

Having said that, there are advantages to using this mount ring.

It defintely improves the centre of balance. So on windy days when using a tripod, it provides you with the confidence that the setup is stable.

The quality of manufacture is up to Canon L standards, as it should be.
Much better quality than the off-brand models I have handled.

Cost is often mentioned, but once I felt the quality and used it, I didn't regret my choice to go with the genuine Canon mount.

I think the lens needs the ring, however, why a large "L" lens needs you to spend $ more for it I don't know.As well, it is not as smooth as other rings on the other long "L" lenses. And I feel if I rotate a lot, I will remove paint from my lens.I am a very dedicated Canon guy, however this is the first item I am not completely satisfied with.However, B&H is "Da bomb", and got the order to me ASAP.... As always!!!!

Comments about Canon Tripod Mount Ring C For 70-300mm Lens:

Even though the Canon 70-300mm f4,5.6 L, IS lens had image stabilization this lens benefits from a tripod mount. This lens is too heavy to hang on a camera lens mounting flange. I shoot about 95% of my images from a tripod and I highly recommend this tripod collar from canon even though it's more than twice the cost of a lesser constructed collar by other mfgs.

    Comments about Canon Tripod Mount Ring C For 70-300mm Lens:

    Excellent quality device. It is very sturdy. This is a high quality item as one would expect from Canon and does NOT suffer from the drawbacks which the knockoffs have. Although it is pricey and alittle heavy, I am glad that I bought it and will have to use when I need it (also provides a fair handhold).

      Comments about Canon Tripod Mount Ring C For 70-300mm Lens:

      Purchased tripod mount ring only after trying to mount camera directly on tripod. The 70-300mm L lens is more "compact" than other Canon L lens with similar focal length, so some reviewers and Canon reps have commented that the mount ring is not necessary. Found the camera too front-heavy without ring. So what I saved with $ rebate on lens; I needed to spend it on this overpriced ring. Prefer to have Canon bundle this ring with lens and charge slightly more, and be transparent with consumers that the ring is necessary.

      the price is over the top, But this lens needs the ring for ease of use on the tripod and for the below reason.

      I do a lot of hiking an the tripod mounting ring makes carry the camera a lot easer

        Fits great, color matches and even without a tripod, my hand fits nicely under the bracket to stabilize the shot. The lens was costly and I could not cut corners with a third party knockoff, I feel better with a quality product.
        Even nicer with a tripod and switching from landscape to portrait is a snap.
        Like so many others, I would have to deduct a star because of the cost...
        Nothing to do with the functionality.

            I almost cried paying this much but admittedly, it's an absolute joy to use. Easy on and off, smooth rotation, and very high quality. I tried a Vello after-market mount ring for another lens and while it seemed well made, it was maddening trying to get it on and off (no spring mechanism). You've already paid a lot for the lens, pay some more for the right piece of equipment. I've had this ring for a year now and finally my resentment over the price is subsiding a bit. In the end, this is the right choice for me.

                It works well and the quality is high, but it is a bit pricey and Canon absolutely should have included it within the 70-300L box as they do for most other white L lenses.

                It works well for hand-holding too (although adding a bit more weight) since it absolutely prevents your hand from accidentally hitting the focusing ring.

                  I was doing OK handheld, but realized that at the 300mm end I was limiting myself to bright sun and high speed. This mount ring really opens up some new opportunities. Built like a rock but still light enough to leave on the lens full-time. A bit pricey (no fifth star), but worth it. I will probably soon add the quick-mount recommended by other users, to speed up set-up time.

                        I prefer to have the weight of the camera and lens balanced over the tripod. This does just that. I also like to have the ability to rotate the lens from the horizontal to vertical which this does. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is the expense. I have used the cheeper Vello counterpart, but it just doesn't rotate as smoothly. In my opinion, Canon should include this with the lens.

                        This Canon tripod ring is the perfect fit for my 70-300mm L lens. Manufacturing is top notch. A little bit expensive though.

                          Comments about Canon Tripod Mount Ring C For 70-300mm Lens:

                          One of the reasons I very seldom buy non-Canon products to complement any Canon product I have, Camera or lens is compatibility. I bought the Tripod Mount Ring C by Canon for my 70-300 lens even though it cost a whole lot more than other copies available on the inter-net because I knew it will fit my lens without any issues. Boy, was I right. The ring mount worked perfectly!

                            Comments about Canon Tripod Mount Ring C For 70-300mm Lens:

                            I know there are several after market tripod mount rings for the Canon 70-300mm L lens. I don't know a thing about them or how they fit. I purchased the tripod ring mount made by Canon. It is definitely more expensive but if you spend a lot of money for a lens you don't want an ill-fitting tripod mount ring. You want it to be well made, reliable, and to perfectly match the color of your lens. No scratches after installation. Highly recommended.

                              Comments about Canon Tripod Mount Ring C For 70-300mm Lens:

                              Just bought a 70-300L lense and decideded I needed a mount for it to either use on a tripod or monopod. If your going to pay 1300 for a lense, why would you want to take a chance on something cheap, that may or may not work well with it. Other than than the price, it is a great product works perfectly with the lens. If in the future, I decide not to do this anymore, I know that the lense will by in good enough shape to sell at a decent price.

                              Comments about Canon Tripod Mount Ring C For 70-300mm Lens:

                              This is a very solid sturdy piece of metal that provides confidence that your lens will be supported in the tripod. But, how can Canon justify pricing it so high? The materials probably add up to a few dollars and the design is basic. Nevertheless, I wouldn't want to hang the lens and an expensive DSLR from a flimsy copy. So, the bottom line is your stuck.
