Really Right Stuff TVC-34L overview

  • 1Description

The TVC-34L Versa Series 3 Mk2 from Really Right Stuff is a mid-weight carbon fiber tripod designed for use in both the field and studio.

Constructed from Really Right Stuff's patented carbon fiber weave, the TVC-34L weighs in at 4.7 lb and can safely support up to 50 lb. It's 4-section leg design allows the tripod to extend to a maximum height of 68.8" and lower down to a minimum working height of just 4".

Quick set-up and break-down is facilitated by easy-to-use twist locks, which 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 24.4" 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 are constructed of lightweight anodized aluminum which, aside from lending inherent strength to the tripod, also provides it with natural wear and corrosion resistance. Each one of the three leg joints also feature a variable angle stop that automatically locks into place as the legs are folded downward into "standard" position.

The TVC-34L's feet are a unique teardrop shape that 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.

It's 4-section leg design allows the tripod to extend to a maximum height of 68.8", lower down to a minimum working height of 4", and with a folded length of 24.4"
The tripod weighs in at 4.7 lb, and it can safely support up to 50 lb
Twist locks with integrated wipers to keep particles out of the locking mechanism
Versa apex, which accepts a 75mm video bowl, has multiple 1/4"-20 sockets for accessories
Rubber feet provide a non-slip grip on surfaces and can be switched to metal "all-terrain" spikes, which are available separately

    Really Right Stuff TVC-34L reviews

    TVC-34L Versa Series 3 Mk2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I bought this with a bh55 ballhead. I've only taken it out once, but it's an excellent tripod. Sturdy, easy to operate, and is built with excellent craftsmanship. Only downside is weight. It might be a little heavy for long hikes. Get the 24L and BH 55 for long hikes. Definitely worth every dollar! If you have the money, buy this tripod.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As good as the Feisol tripods in most respects I bought the RRS TVC-34L to get the height I wanted, although it means having a tripod that is too long when collapsed for air travel. I could put it in checked luggage but twice in past month the airlines have not had my checked luggage on board when the plane landed and I needed to return the following day to the airport. Legs are stiff and load rating appears to be accurate. Options for changing out the base for a leveling base though then one loses the set screws to keep the head securely mounted to the tripod. What I wish RRS would understand is that except for the USA the world is metric. Pain to have to have non-metric hex wrenches for the Really Right Stuff products when all my other photo gear uses metric hex screws and fasteners. Overall I prefer my Feisol CT-3472 which works equally well, cost a lot less, has options for a leveling base and for adding a center column and ships with a high quality carry case that is included with the tripod. The RRS TVC-34L tripod carry case cost an additional $77.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and well built tripod This tripod is a very strong. I won't be carrying this in my pack due to weight, but in yesterdays wind storm with 3 sand bangs attached to the tripod, it was rock solid. This will be a life time purchase for me. It's built so well, it won't need replacing. Tim

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG.... I never knew I could love a tripod as much as I do now. After years of beating an old (and well valued) Manfrotto (it finally broke) I decided to really invest in a top of the line set of legs. Worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mercedes of tripods, indeed I already knew the reputation of this tripod before ordering it, and given its high price point I very much expected it to be the very best that money can buy. Well, the TVC-34L exceeded these expectations, and then some. It feels far lighter than I expected for its size, I will not mind carrying it around (it can strap sideways to the bottom of my backpack). Basically this tripod does what it is supposed to do: it has an extremely solid feeling, and makes a very stable platform for shooting. I tested it with my 500mm f/4 lens (using the RRS PG-02 head) and this gave me a good opportunity to compare with other tripods I've used before. On solid ground, the vibrations are very well-controlled. I can zoom all the way in live view mode and see the slightest shake/vibration on the screen, so I tapped and bumped the lens while mounted to see how the vibrations dissipated, and I am quite impressed (very well controlled). I was able to get super sharp photos wide open with this lens at all distances, something I struggled to do with other kinds of support owing to the vibration sensitivity and extremely shallow depth of field of this longer lens wide open. I've only just used it once and already in love. It is beautiful just to look at, and lovely to touch. This is going to be a tripod for life. It makes me eager to go out and do more challenging shoots, long exposures, big panos, super-telephotos, all of it! I'm going to have a lot of fun with this amazing tool. One thing to note is that it is very stable at full height, and this is partly because it does not have a center column. But this means that the legs have to be longer and that they spread out wider on the ground than a center-columned tripod. If you need to work fully extended in height but also in tight quarters then you might want to use a different kind of tripod (or even tall monopod).
