The TC-N1 Tripod Collar for Nikon 70-200mm f/4 G Lens from Vello is designed for the Nikon 70-200mm f/4 G telephoto lens and attaches directly to the lens to provide a stable and well-balanced mount when lens and camera are attached to tripod.

The ring design and thumbscrews make rotating your lens easier and vertical alignment marks help when changing the orientation from horizontal to vertical. With the included bushing, either a 3/8" or a 1/4" tripod mount can be used.

Improves Lens Balance

The collar and ring secure your lens directly to the camera's tripod.

Gives Your Camera Setup Better Balance

Due to the weight of a large lens, when the lens and camera are mounted on a tripod, the center of gravity is shifted to the lens. Placement of the collar on the lens allows the balance to be shifted for a more stable set up and to reduce strain on the camera mount.

Rotation

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. Thumbscrews make it easy to adjust the tripod ring on the go.

Removable

The collar can be easily removed so as not to get in the way when shooting without a tripod.

1/4"-20 Adapter

With the included bushing, either a 3/8" or a 1/4"-20 tripod mount can be used.

Will this work on a Nikon coolpix p1000?

Will this work on a Nikon coolpix p1000?
Asked by: Brenda
IMO: NO, NEVER, NADA... The diameter of the ring must match the lens mount area exactly. The only place on the "fixed" body portion of the camera that it could be placed is the manual focus ring. IMHO this would WRECK the focus mechanism. If you tried it on the extending portion of the lens, it would WRECK the zoom mechanism; both assuming it actually fits. Aug 2019: I just read about a new arca-swiss compatible plate that extends forwards and supports most of the body and moves the tripod mounting point more towards a balance point. Unfortunately B&H won't let me tell you more... Try looking for rumors about Nikon products. Maybe B&H will stock it someday?

While the Vello TC-N1 does not fit the Nikon 80-400mm VR lens, the Kirk Replacement Lens Collar for Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR, BH # KINC80400GV2 would be more suitable. https://bhpho.to/3eb5R1n

This works perfectly on my Nikon 70-200mm lens. It should fit the Sigma 100-400 lens, but I don't own this lens to be certain.

question

Can it be installed on the 300mm F4 PF without removing the lens from the camera ?
Asked by: Michel F.
Yes you can attach and detach the collar without removing the lens. It appears well made and secure. Turning the knob loosens and tightens the collar so that when loose, you can rotate the lens freely within the collar such as when the collar is mounted on a tripod. When the knob is loosened, the collar wont detach until you pull the knob away from the collar.
