Really Right Stuff TFA-01 ULTRA POCKET POD overview

  • 1Description

The Pocket Pod from Really Right Stuff is a 5.1 oz support that folds down to 6" inches in length to fit in just about any bag. Made of aluminum and stainless steel, the Pocket Pod can be used as a monopod with its legs together or as a tripod with a maximum height of 6" with its legs partially splayed where it can support up to 15 lb. A 1/8" hex key is provided to adjust the leg tension. It's at its default setting of 1.7" with the legs fully splayed however, that it's a real performer. Used this way it's a suitable choice for mirrorless cameras or DSLRs with 70-200mm f/2.8 and 300mm f/4 equivalent telephotos. The Pocket Pod is compatible with several Really Right Stuff ball heads and comes with a 3/8"-16 adapter to accommodate them.

    Really Right Stuff TFA-01 ULTRA POCKET POD reviews

    Pocket Pod is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Premium pocket pod I used to think it was crazy to spend this much on a pocket tripod. Now I have bought a gorilla pod, a little Manfrotto pocket pod, a little plastic one, a Platypus. Had I just bought this first I would have saved a lot of money. It is built as all RRS gear is built - like a rock and in the USA. It is light and the folded shape is convenient for slipping it into small bags, including bags that are not designed for photo gear. I use it with a Sony A7rII and the tripod handles it with no issues. I prefer this model with adjustable legs to the model without adjustable legs. The center screw for mounting a head it removable with a hex key (provided).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod I took this tripod to Europe with a ball head as a travel tripod. At first when I first got it, I thought it was to small, but actually it turned out to be so perfect because of its size. I found it worked on many surfaces to stabilize the X-T2 for long exposure. Very sturdy. I could even place it on the ground and use the camera flip up screen for composition. I really liked its pocketable size. It held my X-T2 with any lens easily. It also adjusts easily with different leg positions. The ball head from my full size tripod worked fine but makes the package larger and less pocketable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sublime; deceptively attractive; highly capable This tiny pod is elegant, smooth, and highly effective. The legs are subtly tapered so they nest together, with just right tacky rubber feet. Slide latches are thumb-formed and grooved for grip. 3 spring-loaded locking positions provide ample range with clear, audible stops. Twin screws on each leg allow tension adjustment. The finish is typical RRS - smooth, lustrous, with a supple feel. I mounted afull frame pro DSLR (Canon 5D3) with both a pro grade 24-104 and 70-200 lens, put the ball head at 90 degrees in portrait position, and rotated upwards at 40 degrees to capture the St. Louis arch on a windy evening. Shots at up to 3 second exposures came out beautifully. This is a solid platform. It takes up virtually no space in my bag. Very light weight. I used a ball head with a base of approx. 1 1/4 to keep weight centered. I'm entirely satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at First Sight Over the past two years I've been trying to make my load lighter. I'm not a big person and the older I get the heavier my backpack feels. Tripods are a must for nature, but I find doing city shots (some of my favorite work) also requires a tripod. This little guy is perfect. It actually fits in my shoulder bag which is very compact. True I need to find a hard surface to put it on, but so far that hasn't been a problem. I actually pulled it out on a recent walk in the woods. Placed it on a flat rock and was able to get my shot. It's worth the extra money and I recommend it highly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Received it have put a small ballhead on it and it is perfectly sturdy with my D750 W/battery grip and Nikor 28-300mm and Nikor 16-35mm. Very will made and have a real quality feel about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For Low Angles And Strong Enough For Large Cameras Great for low angles, strong, small and compact. 3 different leg angle stops is what made me purchase over the regular TFA-01. Just make sure your camera is balanced correctly if on the highest setting, it could topple over.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the original! I loved the original version of this little gem. But RRS improved it by having locks on the legs! Now, good is great!
