Really Right Stuff TA-3-LB overview

  • 1Description

The TA-3 Leveling Base with Short Handle and Platform with 3/8"-16 Stud from Really Right Stuff can level horizons for filming during a video shoot or for landscape photography. Your tripod's top plate can be replaced with the TA-3-VB or other industry standard 75mm video bowls. Therefore, the leveling base adapts right into the bowl, and it gives you the capability of leveling your horizon +/- 15°. Furthermore, with the built-in 12mm bull's-eye bubble level, it ensures your camera is leveled every time.

The top of the leveling base features a low friction anti-jam polymer plate with a 3/8"-16 male stud. Therefore, ball, gimbal, and fluid heads, with the same female thread, screw directly to the base. After locking the level's short handle in place, the base supports up to 25 lb of gear without slipping. In addition, the CNC machined 6061 aluminum leveling base has a Type II anodized finish, which makes it scratch- and corrosion-resistant.

    Really Right Stuff TA-3-LB reviews

    TA-3 Leveling Base with Short Handle and Platform with 3/8"-16 Stud is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical RRS Quality Fits a Gitzo 3 Series perfectly and the short handled model does not limit the tripod being set up at it's lowest position. I bought this to make setting up my Wimberley head faster and easier. It also includes the 75mm video bowl for other accessories. Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Double thumbs up. Used it in Yellowstone with a Wimberly for the first outing. Now have it mounted below a RRS BH55 & that combo may replace the Wimberly for the lightweight 200-500 Nikon. Wimberly is still better with a big prime but I believe it would still enhance that.
