Really Right Stuff TFC-24L overview

  • 1Description

The TFC-24L Mk2 from Really Right Stuff is the "extra-tall" version of the traditional TFC-24 model. It has been designed for photographers who require extra height for shooting over crowds, standing in water, or for everyday photography.

Constructed from Really Right Stuff's patented carbon fiber weave, the TFC-24L can safely support up to 40 lb of equipment. Its 4-section, extra-long leg design allows the tripod to extend to a maximum height of 66.1" and lower down to a minimum working height of just 3.7".

Quick set-up and break-down is facilitated by easy-to-use twist locks that require just a quarter rotation to unlock and re-lock each leg section. This design also helps to maintain the tripod's slim folded silhouette. Additionally, when traveling with or storing the tripod, the entire support can fold down to just 23" in length, small enough to travel or hike with.

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 provide it with natural wear and corrosion resistance. 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 TFC-24L'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

    Really Right Stuff TFC-24L reviews

    TFC-24L Series 2 Mk2 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod for BIF As soon as RRS announced this Mk2 series, I started planning to upgrade my tripod. At first, I considered the TQC-14 which is light and compact. But considering I will use Wimberley sidekick for BIF, I need a tripod to reach my eye level. Though the TQC-14 should be able to do the job with center column lifted, I preferred to have a tripod getting such height without having a center column. I dont need a video bowl for levelling abd thus I choose the TFC-24L. I got my 300mm f/2.8 with a 2x TC on my D850 and works like a charm. It is stable and light. I can move the system around without any problems. I am also getting the RRS apex QD mount to attach a tripod strap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fan-frackin-tastic I know it's not a fair comparison because I'm upgrading from a 15 year old aluminum tripod but the TFC-24L is lighter with the ball head attached than my old aluminum tripod with no head attached. When fully extended the Tripod (66in), Ball Head (3in), Camera (4in) is above my eye line and I'm 6ft 3in. The quarter turn twist locks are very easy to operate with one hand and a quarter turn is generous, I don't think I need a quarter turn when extending/collapsing the legs. I specifically wanted to eliminate the center column and retain the overall working height and the TFC-24L delivers. Setup is quick and I can make rapid adjustments when composing my shot if necessary. I didn't measure the angle of the legs when open, but I get the sense that this has a slightly wider spread than my previous tripod and I can tell this provides a much more stable platform in it's standard configuration than what I have been working with. I can also get much lower now that I don't have to deal with a center column. No removing or reversing the center column, shooting upside down, or attaching the short column. Just open the leg position to the full extent and I've got a stable platform just a few inches off the ground. It really is as good as everyone says.
