The Tripod Collar A (Black) for Canon 200mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/4 & 400mm f/5.6 Lenses from Vello is designed for use with the Canon 200mm f/2.8L II, 70-200mm f/4L (IS and non-IS versions) and 400mm f/5.6L lenses. The ring makes rotating your lens easier, and the built-in tripod collar improves lens balance by screwing into the tripod mount. This collar has vertical alignment marks for quickly changing the orientation from horizontal to vertical. Using the included bushing, either a 3/8" or a 1/4" tripod mount can used.

Improves Lens Balance
The ring secures your lens to the camera's tripod.
Gives Your Camera Setup Better Balance
The ring adds stability to your camera and lens. Due to its weight, when the lens is mounted with a camera on a tripod, the center of gravity is shifted to the lens. The ring attaches to the tripod and can be shifted to adjust the balance.
Having the camera secured with a ring around the lens makes it possible to rotate the lens between landscape and portrait modes without removing the camera from the tripod. The friction thumbscrews can then be tightened to secure the camera in the desired position. When not needed, the ring can be rotated to an out of the way position.
Thumbscrews Tighten And Loosen Ring
Having thumbscrews control the ring makes it easy to adjust the tripod ring on the go.

    Tripod Collar A (Black) for Canon 200mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/4 & 400mm f/5.6 Lenses is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Collar for 200mm f2.8 This little accessory is just what I needed. I use a Canon 200mm f/2.8 for astrophotography piggybacked on a refracting telescope that in turn is on an equatorial mount. When the mount slews to an object, the orientation could be skewed and so I just turn the camera inside the collar to adjust it how I want it. For a tripod, there are marks for landscape and portrait which are a plot. The construction is solid and as a bonus, there is no more stress on the lens connection since the collar goes around the lens at the point that is pretty close to balanced. This in turn improves the stability of my photos. I have no complaints except that I shouldn't have waited to buy it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I bought this for use with my Canon 70-200 f4L IS (unbelievable that Canon doesn't provide a mount with this lens!). I just couldn't bring myself to fork over $ that Canon wants for this mount, and I've had good experiences with Vello products and so decided to go with this. I have to say that I am very pleased with it. It is well built and gives you confidence that it won't fail. If I had to nitpick, the only thing negative I could say is that upon loosening it for rotation, it would be nice if lens rotation was a bit smoother, but it is still very easy to line up with the hash mark for vertical shots. Definitely not worth an extra $ to me to get the Canon. This mount comes in either black or white. I chose black, and it looks really good on my lens, particularly when mounted on my tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharpness Savior Once I got this collar, I used it right away on my Canon 60D and my 200mm for football. It helped soo much in keeping the images sharp and allowing my arm to rest. Even when not on a monopod/tripod, it functions as a grip to allow you to focus or zoom while keeping the lens steady. This is a must for any Canon 200mm f2.8L user! It is a little on the heavy side, but that is what makes it sturdy and you do not notice the added weight on a monopod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a competent product compared to the original This Tripod collar from Vello works great and cost much less than the original Canon one. I would recommend anyone looking to save some money by getting this one instead. I have used this tripod collar on my Canon prime 200mm F2.8 prime lens for several months already. It is an excellent product with great quality and fantastic value for money. Also B & H service is reliable. They had this product delivered to me promptly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally the right ring f/200f/2.8 L lens B+H is the only seller of after market lens tripod rings that accurately lists the lenses each one is for. And is very fairly priced and built right compared to manufacturer's similar item. For a change one can finally clamp down this lens w/ camera attached onto a tripod and achieve much better balance. Makes shooting verticals a snap with no change in balance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tripod Collar I bought this tripod collar for a Canon 200mm f2.8 II. It is all metal construction, well made and has a flocked lining to prevent marking the barrel of the lens. It balances and supports the lens nicely with a camera body attached. It is considerably less expensive than the Canon accessory collar and I highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This is a very well made product for the price. It fits my 200mm F/2.8 perfectly. I tried something similar from Hong Kong, but they don't seem to take the sizes seriously and it did not fit my lens. Save yourself the trouble and just order one of these from B&H

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't think twice It is very well constructed. Does the job, and for the money.lets be realist, you get more than your money's worth for this item. Fits fine and works grate on my canon 70-200mm f/4. By the way 70-200mm is out of this world.
