Really Right Stuff Mk2 Overview

The TQC-14 Mk2 from Really Right Stuff is one of the lightest and most compact tripods in the RRS product lineup. As a scaled-down version of other Series 1 models, the TQC-14 maintains most standard features like ratcheting leg locks and a carbon fiber construction, but also adds new features like a reversible and removable mounting stud and a stabilizing hand strap.

Constructed from Really Right Stuff's patented carbon fiber weave, the TQC-14 weighs in at an impressive 2.6 lb and can safely support up to 25 lb. Its 4-section leg design and center column allow the tripod to extend to a maximum height of 58.5", and still reaches a notable 47.6" even when the center column is retracted. Plus, it can go down to a minimum working height of just 3.3".

Quick set-up and break-down is facilitated by easy-to-use twist locks that require a very short rotation to unlock and re-lock each leg section. This design also helps to maintain the tripod's slim folded silhouette. A ballast/hand strap has also been added to the bottom of the tripod collar to allow users to increase stability by hand or with additional weights. Additionally, when traveling with or storing the tripod, the entire support can fold down to just 17.7" in length, small enough to fit into nearly any backpack or carry-on bag.

Each leg is attached to the tripod's collar via an offset leg joint that helps to evenly distribute heavy loads and maintain the tripod's rigidity. The joints and collar itself are constructed of lightweight anodized aluminum which, aside from lending inherent strength to the tripod, also provides it with natural wear and corrosion resistance. The collar's base plate utilizes a reversible 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 stud that can provide direct mounting of a camera or head. The stud can also be removed entirely, providing the user with a female 1/4"-20 socket for use with a variety of accessories including magic arms and accessory supports. Additionally, three 1/4"-20 threads are also available for easily mounting accessories. Each one of the three leg joints also feature a ratcheting angle stop that automatically locks into place as the legs are folded downward into "standard" position.

The TQC-14's feet are a unique teardrop shape, which prevents the leg sections from touching the ground at even the lowest height settings and the most unusual angles. Their rubber exterior provides a non-slip grip on nearly any surface and can be used both indoors and outdoors without concern. For users wishing to change the native rubber feet to metal "all-terrain" spikes, a set of metal spikes are available separately.

  • Twist locks with integrated wipers to keep particles out of the locking mechanism, providing better resistance to the elements
  • Improved knurling pattern designed to feel better on your skin
  • Collets replace the old locking gibbs, reducing lock engagement to half the travel to lock and unlock faster with less effort
  • O-rings help keep threads clean and smooth while providing better tactile feedback
  • Vented clevis design allows legs to collapse faster without pressure buildup
  • Threaded sockets on the sides of the apex provide better placement for accessories like QD attachments or a BC-18

Can I use quick release plates to attach/detach ...

Can I use quick release plates to attach/detach heads on the TQC-14? I always use quick release plates with 3/8" threaded holes, such as RRS B2-40-LR or B2-LR-II clamps, and screw them directly onto the 3/8" mounting bolt on the tripod base. Then I put attach QR plates to the base of my heads, so that I can swap them on and off easily. Is this possible with the TQC-14? Or is the space available to attach a clamp too narrow?
Asked by: John
Yes, the area with the 3/8" screw is a simple flat surface, so attaching a quick release clamp should not be a problem.

What is the maximum width of the base of the head ...

What is the maximum width of the base of the head that will work with the TQC-14? The "ears" that stick up from the locking collar for the center post look like they will limit which head will work with this tripod.
Asked by: Linda
The RRS BH-55 will work with the TQC-14, but it's a bit overkill. Just raise the center column, screw on the head, lower the center column until the ears touch the base of the head, then tighten the wing-nut. The few mm extra height won't adversely affect stability.

What is the different between the mk1 and mk2? Can I check the photo?
Asked by: Jaan
The Mark II verses the older version main differences are Added multiple 1/4"-20 sockets around the base of the tripod. These additional sockets provide more options for attaching accessories, such as Really Right Stuff's phone mount and optional carry strap. It now has a weight hook. And the legs of the tripods now have sealed twist locks for extending and retracting the legs during use. The new sealed twist lock minimizes the amount of contaminants, such as sand and grit, that gets caught inside the twist locks.
