    is this TFA-01 Basic or Ultra?

    is this TFA-01 Basic or Ultra?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    That is the Ultra Pocket Pod - you can identify it by the small grey sliders near the top of the tripod. The sliders release the tripod legs from stops and allow them to spread in order for the tripod support to be closer to the ground. The Ultra Pocket Pod operates very intuitively once you see how it works.

    RRS told me I need this adapter to connect my FLM 38FTR ballhead to this tripod. Is this the same as the Kirk Double Male Stud BH #KIDS1 MFR #DS-1 ?
    Asked by: Barbara
    The screw on the tripod is 1/4 inches so that tripod head needs to match. You can use a reducer bushing if needed on the tripod head. They cost less than five dollars.

    How does this compare to the GorillaPod?
    Asked by: Allen
    I don't have a GorillaPod but this is a very sturdy tripod that probably can take a lot more weight for longer exposures.

    Is the spring loaded hinge between legs and base plate robust or a weak point? Can the spring dislodge easily?
    Asked by: David
    RRS Pocket Pod I think it is the best one. I also own gitzo mini tripod. But I prefer RRS then the other one. I never had spring dislodged with heavy load, tele lens 200-600 sony + sony A7/A9 series. I think this is the best mini tripod out there.

    Not that I know of. I just wrap it in bubble-wrap and put it in my bag. It might work in one of the lens wraps that come with a lens, Or maybe a sock? ;-)
