Really Right Stuff TA-2-QC QUICK-COLUMN Overview

The TA-2-QC from Really Right Stuff is a variable, rapid center column that can be added to Versa Series 2 tripods in order to increase their versatility and maximum height.

The process of installing the column is simple, just remove the tripod's original base-plate, mount the center column in its place, and then reattach the base-plate to the top of the center column. Installation is so simple that removing the column is just as easy. If you're traveling and need to reduce your tripod's weight, or need to utilize your tripod's minimum working height, just take out the center column and reattach the base-plate in its original position.

In terms of technical specifications, the TA-2-QC features a native length of 12.3" and weighs just 9.1 oz. When attached to a tripod it provides 9.4" of total travel distance from lowest position to highest position. A threaded mount on the bottom of the column retains the use of the ballast hook which may be reattached from the base-plate after the column is installed.

Versatile Center Column

By Tracy
Rated 5 out of 5

I love my RRS Mk2 Versa Apex Carbon Fiber Tripod. With no center column I can get low to the ground for stunning landscape & macro shots. But when I need that extra height the RRS TA-2-QC Quick Center Column fits the bill. Well made, light weight and super easy to install and remove. Highly recommended and well worth the investment.

Quick adjustment

Added this to my RRS tripod to give some flexibility in adjusting the height of tripod besides fiddling with the legs. Well made but adds some weight, of course, to the tripod. I try not to extend it too much since the more you extend, the chance of more vibration impacting the camera, but I have not noticed that so far.

Solid Accessory for RRS Series 2 Tripods

For cameras with flip-down live view monitors, this is a solid add-on to provide additional height when the situation warrants. Built like everything RRS manufactures - stout but light weight - it's Highly Recommended.

It fits and works just like advertised. The material and manufacturing is good. Instructions are clear and simply explained. Unfortunately it was 4 months between purchase and delivery.

This is basically an aluminum baseball bat. Incredibly strong and does not affect performance while providing 10 of extra height. Win-win!

Exceptional build quality

This centre column adds the extra height I need without sacrificing stability. The wing collar is firm but does not require a lot of force to tighten or loosen. As with every RRS product this column is built to withstand the test of time (and a lot of abuse).

A tripod for everything with this column.

Right: a bit more weight but one thing very important for me is the possibility to reverse the column without removing the base-plate. Just flip out the column from its holder and pass it by the bottom side (I don't use the hook, one piece less to remove).You'll be able to use your tripod for macro with the camera almost on the ground if you want. It's really practical not having to bring a mini shaky tripod for this kind of photography and having everything in one.

Aluminum? This center column is made of aluminum.

An aluminum center column on a carbon fiber tripod? If there is any vibration transmitted by the camera it will go through the center column first, the aluminum will transmit those vibrations more than carbon fiber. Perhaps RRS has done research and found aluminum center columns perform no different than carbon fiber. In use the center column is rough, it is not easy to raise, it is very course. I've put wax on the column to smoothen its movement but the binding is not easy to overcome. I don't see any defects or poor manufacturing, so a second copy will likely not be any different. Good points: the tightening knob(s) are easy to use, the SureGrip set screws ensure the apex is secure. In summary, this center column is not up to RRS standards of excellence, it works but it could be improved.
