The Tripod Collar by Fotodiox attaches your Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens to a tripod or monopod while stabilizing it. A locking knob helps safely secure the collar to your lens. The knob can be loosened, allowing you to turn your camera from landscape to portrait mode without removing your camera from your tripod or adjusting your tripod head. The collar is coated with a matte white finish.

    Tripod Collar for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Functional, but with a caveat I bought this ring to use on my monopod for long shooting days and I put it through it's paces for the first time at the Lone Star LeMans race in Austin, TX last weekend.Functionally, the ring does what it's supposed to do, but I do not like the mechanism for the clamp. It does not stay closed fully and even when it is, the ring moves around the camera easily. While shooting, I could feel the camera turning inside the ring. There is a layer of felt glued to the inside of the ring and as a result I'll need to remove and replace that or enhance the interface somehow. If the price difference between this and the Canon version weren't so significant, I'd have just bought the Canon. But, at $$?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thumbs down I purchased this given the huge difference in price from the canon. However, I was disappointed in both the locking mechanism, tension and rocking against the lens. First of all, the locking pin comes undone far to easily. This worries me since sometimes I carry my tripod with the lens still mounted. Second, the tension does not totally hold from spinning (perhaps 70%). Perhaps that is enough for some people. Finally, the lens still rocks a bit. This is a kill shot. I'm feeling forced to purchase the overpriced Canon. It disappoints me that Canon does not include this as part of the lens purchase, as it does with similar lenses. Today I'm not feeling the love from either Canon or substitute accessory companies. Here's comes the credit card hurt!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for the Canon 70-300 L I hardly ever put the Canon 70-300 L on a tripod, but I shoot a lot of sports hand held. Having the tripod ring allows you to place the foot of the ring in the palm of your hand and spin the zoom ring with your fingers. This to me creates a much better balance while reducing stress on the zoom ring that results in supporting the lens at the zoom ring. For those who are considering the Canon 70-300L IS it t is a heavy brute, so the FotodioX tripod ring is a good cost friendly accessory to have. It does everything that the Canon zoom rings do at a better price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well at a reasonable price Using this collar on the 70-300mm lens has definitely improved the stability for both portrait and landscape shots. Very good investment at a very reasonable price. Would give 5 stars except for bulking up equipment on already bulky lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't believe the negative reviews Don't believe the negative reviews on this Fotodiox tripod mount. It is designed to permit the camera to be rotated easily for horizontal or vertical shooting; but clamps securely for picture taking. There were no instructions on how to do this (probably because it is so easy to do). There are red dots on the knob and body of the mount that you line up. You pull out the knob to open or close the ring. When the ring is initially closed the camera can be rotated. Turn the knob clockwise until it stops and the camera is held securely. My only issue was that it turns so easily; but Canon's own C tripod mount may be exactly the same. The color isn't an exact match but for 1/4 the price I got a steal. Don't spend four times as much because some people are not mechanically inclined. This is a great product. There is no scraping of metal on rotating as some people reported. They probably didn't loosen the ring first (dummies).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd buy this again and again Great price for a collar a quarter the price of Canon's. Was a 15 second install, locks down well and holds tight. My Manfrotto quick release plate mounts perfectally to the base. I'll be using my lens mostly hand held, but this is an easier way to hand hold and make any adjustments to the camera or lens. Highly recommend this ring, fits my lens perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I didn't want to spend a fortune on a tripod collar, so I was glad to find this one. I saw some reviews saying that the off brand collars were no good. I have not had any trouble with this one. Stays tight on the lens. I would recommend it and buy it again if I needed to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FotodioX Tripod Collar Bought this Tripod collar for my 70-300L Canon Lens. A lot cheaper than Canon's version and it does the same job. I was impressed with the color match and thickness of the metal. I highly recommend this to anyone in need of one.
