I just picked up a TVC-33s and the new version of their series-3 leveling base that has a longer handle on it and a hoook on the bottom. And got some spikes. For me this is the ultimate setup. I spent days trying to decide which one to get but this ticks all the right boxes for me and works very nicely with my BH-40 head that already have. The build quality of the thing is incredible and I love the leveling head with the quick release clamp on it.

I did a post with a ton more photos on my blog as well. I won't link to it here as that's frowned upon but those who want to see more photos of this setup will be able to find it on Google no doubt.

Shoot some photos of it set up with the head on it. I'd like to see how that looks.

If you click on Dan's link My Photography Blog in his signature there are shots with the head in his review.

Here is one with the head attached. By using the dovetail plate on the bottom of the BH40 , the locking knob doesn't foul on the top plate at all. It feels like a great setup, a good middle ground between the full weight of a tvc33 +bh55 combo which is considerably heavier.

There are many more photos on my blog though, including also with their gimbal head thingy too.

I like the configuration as well...I frequently change the heads but doesn't it adds more weight, height as well as point of weakness as well?

I believe so, especially the weight and height - it will be very useful when convenience of changing head out-weight the others.

For stability I think it may affect critical shutter speeds for telephoto, but at other shutter speed I don't think there'll be any problem.:rolleyes:

5 of the 7 RRS tripods are backordered. Anyone know how the buying / shipping process is working for a backordered tripod? Are you able to purchase a backordered tripod and it ship once available? If so, is the credit card charged at the time the order is placed or once the tripod is ready to be shipped?

BTW > TVC-33 is the tripod that has my attention :D

When I ordered mine (34L) it was back ordered. Buying process was easy, I called them up, told them what I wanted and it was done. It arrived less than two weeks later, much faster than they predicted. I don't believe they charged the card until it shipped, but I'm not sure since I don't do money stuff (other than spend it).

^ They charge the card when it is in stock and they send the order.

Put in an order either online or over the phone because they almost never show "in-stock" online for the most popular ones. Your order will put you in line and when I ordered my 34L I emailed about an estimate and they said 3 weeks and it ended up shipping in 3weeks and 1 day so they do have a good idea about how much and when stock will be coming.

2012 Models or revisions?

It's nice to know you are not charged until the tripod is ready to ship. Also, 3 weeks waiting time is not bad either. Thanks for that info guys!

Is this RRS first release / edition of tripods? Are there 2012 models or updated versions to be released anytime in the near future?

I ask because the 100mm f/2.8L IS was released right after I picked up the original 100mm. The original is still an amazing lens just as I'd imagine the current $900 RRS tripods to be :lol:

No they've been making tripods for a while now and adding to their line as they go along. Their most recent tripod is a traveler. They do fine-tune their designs though.
