    Hi Matt. Good video. We talked a couple of years ago about tripods and you were happy with your RRS TFC-14, but the one thing that keep me from getting it was the lack of a column. I ended up getting a TVC-24 MK2 with a Quick Column. I love this tripod, but can’t get low to the ground without removing the column, which just isn’t practical. I had considered, I think it was Benro, that had a column that you could easily remove most of the bottom of it, but wasn’t entirely thrilled with the build of my previous Benro.

    RRS just came out with, what I consider perhaps the best backpacking/travel tripod option, the Ascend. This is pretty much an updated TFC-14, but it comes with a column design that can be shorted or flipped like the Benro had. You can get it with a new head specifically designed for it, but I ordered the platform model so i could use my RRS BH30 and universal leveling base, which is really helpful to get good panos at any angle.

    I will let you know how i like it when it arrives (backordered now), but i am hopeful that it is all I anticipate. One note is that RRS stuff does not recommend either the TFC-14 or the Ascend (also series 1) with longer than 200 mm. It will be a test to see how it performs with my 100-400 with 1.2 teleconverter.
