    Really Right Stuff TA-3-LB-HK reviews

    TA-3 Leveling Base with Platform and Hook is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Accessory for Your Really Right Stuff TVC-33 Tripod I had bought the TVC-33 Really Right Stuff Tripod with the standard mounting plate and hook assembly. After using the tripod I determined a levelling base would be a worthwhile addition. The telescoping leg adjustments on the tripod are suited for the rough level but the levelling base makes it so easy to attain a perfectly level platform very quickly. I went with the mid-range hook length. Unlocking the levelling base is very easy to make adjustments to the level, it does not take much torque to lock the base down which is an advantage since it is easy then to unlock the base to make fine adjustments. Very pleased with this Leveling Base from Really Right Stuff, highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. This TA-3 Leveling Base with platform and hook is coupled with the TVC-43 Versa Series 4 Carbon Fiber Tripod. Leveling the base makes it fast and easy to level the BH-55 ball head with lever-release panning clamp. This set up is an excellent combination to keep the camera level when doing pano work or video work. Leveling the base is fast and provides a perfect platform for the BH-55 ball head with panning clamp even when the tripod can't be leveled easily. The time saved trying to level the base of the tripod makes this leveling base well worth the money. This leveling base is another great product from Really Right Stuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest leveling base on the market for the right price! I was on the lookout for leveling base for my Gitzo 3 series tripods. Gitzo makes one and I tried it and which isn't convenient like RRS. Since Gizo has the lever on side and it take more time to get it right. RRS on the other hand has it screw on the bottom and it is most convenient in my opinion. I love anything lever but in this case the screw works best. It will fit Gitzo series 3 tripods. My usage is to shoot panoramas where I need to get the tripod to level. I used to compose at one spot with adjusting legs all 3 adjusted and leveled then to realize I don't like pano composition. Moving to next location I had to repeat leveling 3 legs again. So this leveling base helps me move around and quickly fix the tripod to level with a single screw and tight. This leveling base fits Gitzo like a glove and makes me think it is made for that. Another bonus is the extended leveler which I keep on top of my Gitzo leg leveler and I feel I don't miss anything from Gitzo tripod after adding this base. I bought with hook and now I can't do the full splayed to get low level, I can remove the hook alone and still find it doesn't go full low profile. For this reason I'm thinking of getting TFA-01 with BH-30. Other than this one con this is a must have for anyone shooting panoramas. Highly recommended and this is cheaper than Gitzo unusable leveling base!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good design by quality control lacking The TA-3 leveling base I received had the stud 3mm too short and so had 75% the mounting strength of the base plate of the tripod. When using this RRS leveling base there is no provision for a set screw to keep the head from unscrewing itself from the tripod. It can be fixed (if there are enough threads available) by adding a Belleville or a wave washer between the head and the RRS leveling base. I like that I can orient the bubble level to be facing me when using the tripod. This is not always the case with camera and lens mounts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Worthwhile Built with the expected high quality RRS engineering and manufacturing. Easy to install and definitely makes tripod setups easier in the outdoor world I prefer to shoot. Utilizing both the BH-55 Ball Head and a Wimberly Gimbal for different applications in rough terrain, day and nighttime, it was evident this leveling base might speed up my setup. It certainly does; now I set the legs to safely support the rig and this leveling base allows me to make quick adjustments to level out the base. I wouldn't have a tripod without one now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a dream All the camera leveling problems are gone when you use the TA-3 in combination with your RRS tripod. I simple twist then tighten and it is rock solid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RRS engineering is great This is a lovely piece of kit. It makes it so easy to set your Ball Head or Gimbal level, no matter how the tripod legs are set. A must have item!
