Welcome to the forum Ede! ....

thanks for the welcome

If you only want to use one tripod the TVC-24 or a series-2 Gitzo makes sense. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts about the experience of using a RRS tripod from the perspective of a (former) Gitzo user. Good luck with your new tripod!

no, it will not be the only one. But certainly the main one. Besides this one there are the Leica 14100, Berlebach Mini, Berlebach Minimax and a GM5541 Monopod.

The Gitzo Gilux total is already sold, I got this one as a travel tripod bigger than the Minimax, but now the TVC 24 is portable enough. I will yet have to find out if I will get happy with the center stud. I imagine for table - product photography it is quite handy, of course also to reach higher here or there but I will find out. So far I was happy without a center stud.

With regards to a fully grown tripod I think that there will be a time when that will find its way to me again as well. But a) I can wait for the right used opportunity now and b) I can be relaxed with regards to folded size length and weight aslong as I keep the TVC24. Maybe it will actualle be a wooden tripod again, or e 3-segmented Gitzo (RRS will be quite pricey and are very rarely offered used).

regards
ede

Ede,

Sounds like a good move. I went from a Gitzo to the RRS too, my swap saved a few pounds and I've been very pleased with the RRS tripod.

A few POUNDS?! What did you go from and to?

I ordered the TQB-72 Medium Bag (for my TVC-24L and BH-55LR) and received it on April 10th. I haven't really got to check it out yet but seems excellent and well designed. Which bag are you looking for?

They've been out for a few months or so. We discussed them a few pages back, IIRC.

Long story short, they were worth the wait.

I am looking for the large replacement bag, which I believe should be model TQB-82B.

The current Large model on RRS's site is TQB-80B. A google search shows this bag has been available since 2009.

Gitzo 5541L (6.3 lbs) to RRS 34L 4.7 lbs. The weight reduction is noticeable if I'm wandering around with it for hours, in and out of the car it wouldn't matter.

The TQB-80 was out for a while, but it's now discontinued. The "B" version started shipping in February of this year, or thereabouts, and adds many features, like internal pouch, external pouch, top handles, and ID slot. The largest of the new line is the 89, which doesn't have a B as it's the first of that size. But it too has all the new features of the B bag.

I'm considering 23 or 24L. As I'm 6.3 I believe 24L would suit me better. On the other hand I believe 23 is more stable due to 3 sections not 4.
Could somebody measure the height of 24L when only 3 sections are extracted? Is it the same as 23 in height?

I don't own the these tripods but my experiences between 3 and 4 section, the 24L would be considerably shorter with only 3 sections extended. For a definite answer you should give RRS a call.

Although the 3 section will be sturdier than the 4 section it would be very minimal and if you need the extra height I would recommend going with the 24L. The main reason I prefer a 3 section tripod is for the quicker setup time.

Yes with modern twist leg locks the differential if any is very small. You'll be fine with a 4 leg section tripod from a quality manufacturer.

with a reasonable leg width and the bottom legs up.. I have 53 inches to the top.. with my BH55 it's nearly 57.. which is probably perfect for someone 5"9 5"10 with a camera on it..no stooping.
RRS has the 23 listed at 52.4... so yes about the same for 24L with 3 leg sections.

Anyone here have any comments on the RRS TFA-01 Pocket 'Pod? Looks like a decent table top tripod.

People with a TV-33s how tall are you? I am 5'6 ...so well under 6 feet but I don't want to be bending down all the time...so I am trying to decide between the s model and the regular model. If the s is ok for people my height I'd like to go with it, lighter weight. I am thinking of doing an Arca-Swiss Z1 head with the RRS QR lever clamp. I have a 7d ungripped.
