Really Right Stuff TFA-01 overview

  • 1Description

The TFA-01 Ultra Pocket Pod and BH-25 LR Ball Head Package from Really Right Stuff is a great combination of a lightweight and portable table top tripod and the Arca-type compatible BH-25 LR Ball Head.

  • Pocket Pod

    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.

  • BH-25 Ball Head with Lever-Release Clamp

    The BH-25 Ball Head with Lever-Release Clamp from Really Right Stuff is an Arca-compatible, single action tripod head that represents the smallest and lightest ball head offering in the RRS line-up.

    Despite the BH-25's small stature it's an impressively capable support, able to hold up to 8.8 lb, while standing just 2.6" tall and weighing a negligible 7.8 oz. The single action design of the head allows the user to unlock the 360° pan and the ball at the same time, facilitating completely free movement in any direction and locking in any position. The T-style lever lock assists the user when locking and unlocking the ball head by providing a large grip for maximum leverage. The T-style handle is also set on a spring loaded ratcheting joint, which allows the user to rotate the handle, freeing it of obstruction caused by large tripod baseplates.

    On the technical side, the BH-25 features a few classic additions that make the head almost universally compatible and customizable. The bottom of the head features a standard 3/8"-16 mount for wide compatibility with most tripod legs, while the connecting stem features a standard 1/4"-20 thread that makes swapping quick release clamps as simple as possible. Also, to save weight, the 0.9" ball uses a hollow design, which maintains strength while adding to the BH-25's lightweight design.

Really Right Stuff TFA-01 reviews

TFA-01 Ultra Pocket Pod and BH-25 LR Ball Head Package is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best table tripoid you can get Very pleased with this gadget. It fits neatly into my pocket and allows me to leave my other conventional tripoid at home. With the B-25 ballhead, I can balance my 1500 gr telezoom well enough to make hand-held pics with the TFA as a hand-grip. Also great to use it vertically, pressed against a wall or other vertical surface for long exposures. The B-25 has amazing stability, ball leveling and panning are both operated by the T-lever, and camera can be positioned 90??.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent addition to any camera bag I was surprised how useful this tripod is. I hesitated for a number of weeks before finally breaking down buying it, it is a tad spendy, but it is an RRS product, so you can't get better quality. This tripod has allowed me to get shots that I would have missed other wise. Yes, my other tripods can be configured to get the camera down to this level, but it's such a pain that I never took the time. Now I just drop this tripod in my shoulder bag and I'm ready.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A very high end table tripod It is perfect for what it is, but my version didn't include the bubble level. It is also pricey, but it is from RRS which makes absolutely the best all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great little tripod I love this device. It's easy to carry and gets low very easily. It securely supports a Nikon D850 with either a 70-200mm f2.8 or an Otus 28mm lens (my two heaviest combinations I use with the device. The head locks securely without sagging after tightening in position. I can't really pan since the ball and head both loosen at the same time when the single tightening lever is loosened to adjust the lens position. However, the panning portion of the head does allow you to position the notch in the head between the legs of the tripod to allow the camera to tilt the lens down 90 degrees. In this position you have to support the back leg of the tripod; because of the tripod's small size it will tip over if not held when angled at 90 degrees down. You might use this ability to tilt if shooting down from a table top. Device is very useful to brace camera against a wall or tree if no full tripod is available. I considered the smaller BH-18 head. This would be lighter and smaller. It's rated at 10 lb. capacity compared to 8.8 lb. for this head. I wouldn't be able to tilt the BH-18 as far down as with this head. A few have said that the smaller BH-18 isn't quite as smooth to operate as the BH-25, but I don't have any personal experience with the BH-18 head to know for sure.
