TFC-14 Series 1 Tripod


Out of Stock, Backorder OK

The TFC-14 Travel Tripod is the most compact and lightest carbon fiber tripod we offer.

We have optimized the TFC-14 to be 11% lighter and 15% more compact than the slightly larger TQC-14 Travel Tripod.

Engineered to be a companion to the BH-30 ball head, the TFC-14 easily supports loads up to 25 pounds without sacrificing stability. The TFC-14 collapses down to just 17.2" (44cm) and has a collapsed diameter of only 3.4" (86mm).

This travel tripod can be packed into a wide variety of small-medium sized day packs, making it perfect for traveling, hiking or even just walking around town. At 2.3 pounds (1.1kg), the TFC-14 is our lightest tripod.
  • Reversible Apex Stud: Can be flipped from a male 1/4"-20 to male 3/8"-16, or removed entirely for a female 1/4"-20 socket option.
  • Perimeter Mounting Options: Apex hosts three female 1/4"-20 perimeter mounting sockets to which accessories may be attached (including the RRS phone clamp & stand, allowing you to use a smartphone as a tethered control or preview monitor).
  • Removable Hand Strap: Eliminates need for additional weights. Use your own body weight against the strap to stabilize shots, and slip the strap over your hand when you're on the move for increased carrying security.
  • Offset Leg Joints: Tripods must occasionally withstand tremendous bending and torsion loads. It is crucial that the leg angle stops and all other structural joints are well supported. Our patented offset leg joints fully support the leg angle stops, allowing loads to be transferred straight through the strongest members of the tripod. This also means the tripod is more compact when collapsed.
  • Ratcheting Angle Stops
  • Rubber Ball Feet: Large diameter teardrop shape keeps leg sidewalls from touching the ground even at the lowest settings and makes positive contact with the ground at virtually any angle.
  • Anodized, Type 3 Black
  • Twist Grip Leg Extension Locks: Textured semi-hard rubber allows for easy adjustments and strong grip. Anti-twist leg sections mean each twist lock can be operated independently.
