The TA-3 Leveling Base with Lever-Release Clamp and Hook from Really Right Stuff is a useful foundation for all types of tripod heads and is suitable as a panorama base. Compatible with the Really Right Stuff Versa Series 3 tripods and the Gitzo Series 3 Systematic tripods, this version has a lever-release clamp and a hook to attach weighty objects to stabilize the tripod. Constructed of CNC machined 6061 aircraft-grade anodized aluminum, the base will support up to 25 lb and features a total of 30 degrees of leveling capability. A large bubble helps hasten the leveling process. The base can be removed to reveal the integrated TA-3-VB video bowl which will accept any head or accessory compatible with a 75mm video bowl.

    TA-3 Leveling Base with Lever-Release Clamp and Hook is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality as Expected Really Right Stuff has always made incredible products, and this is no exception. The fit and finish are perfect and the utility that the base provides has been extremely valuable for me. Only thing I wish was different was how quickly the head engages when you turn the knob. It goes from no tension to full tension extremely quickly, which makes it more difficult to make minute changes. Note: If you use this and realize you need a standard 3/8 stud for a tripod head, you'll have to buy a replacement plate. I made that mistake.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have for pano-gimbal work and video work. If you use a Really Right Stuff Pano-Gimbal head OR the Really Right Stuff FH-350 fluid-head OR by pure habit use a leveling base with a ball-head, I highly recommend this leveling base. The clamp is crucial for switching between various heads. If working at minimum height with your Series 3 tripod is of utmost importance, I recommend ordering the Leveling Base with the 2.5 handle directly through Really Right Stuff (as B&H doesn't sell that model). The 4.5 handle with thehook in this model is a bit long for ground clearance. If you value having the hook as well the extended handle for easier adjustments, this is for you. Note: All the handles can be sold separately, so you can buy this leveling base, buy another handle, and switch the different handles in and out depending on your needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line product. This is an amazing product to help level your tripod without having to fiddle with the legs of your tripod and play the guessing game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Leveling Simple Excellent product. Makes leveling quick and simple without having to futz with the tripod legs all the time.
