Canon Tripod Mount Ring C For 70-300mm Lens

B&H # CATMR Mfr # 4429B001
You Pay: $169.00
Product Highlights
  • For EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L Series Lens
  • Improves Tripod-Mounted Lens Balance
  • Freely Rotates For Easy Lens Adjustment
  • Friction Lock
  • Thumbscrew Tightens and Loosens Ring
  • Allows Attachment Of Other Accessories

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"

I bought a Chinese knock off and it did the job it was made to do. However, the threaded thumbscrew was slightly short and only about two threads were engaged when tightened. I was worried that the camera and lens was not being held securely when mounted on a tripod and slung over my shoulder when walking. Last week B&H notified me that the Canon ring was finally in stock and I decided to get one, even though I considered it ridiculously expensive. It was shipped in less than 12 hrs. When I opened it I was very happy to see that it had a hook and spring loaded latch mechanism to securely hold the ring from opening inadvertently, just like the rings on their other telephoto L lens ring mounts. I decided immediately to keep it. It works very well and is obviously Canon quality. The only reason I rated it 4 instead of 5 is because I still consider it overpriced.

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:

      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.

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

        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.

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

          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.

                    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!

                      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.

                        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.

                        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.

                          With wildlife and landscape work. Well made and easy to use. Too expensive and should be included with the lens.

                            As most every one says the price is ridiculous for something that should be included with a $1600 lens. With that out of the way it is still an excellent and well made product. I tried a cheap knockoff and upon receipt sent it back since I would not trust it in my style of use. I use mine for hiking and as an attachment point for my black rapid strap and have absolutely no concerns that it will hold the weight and banging around it gets climbing rocks and rough trails.

                              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!!!!

                                Sturdy clamp for the 70-300mm "L" Canon Lens. After you unscrew the bolt, you need to pull on it to open the clamp.

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

                                Let's face it your image quality is directly proportional to numerous factors, so eliminating yet another variable is always good. These tripod mount rings are very useful for stabilizing a moderately heavy lens and I also use it in conjunction with the Carry Speed body strap system. I would have rated it 5 stars with the exception that it's very pricey.
