Canon Tripod Mount Ring A (W) - $60 (Cambria)

123456

condition: good
make / manufacturer: Canon
model name / number: Tripod Mount Ring A (W)

This is designed for the following lenses: Canon EF 70-200 f4 L; Canon EF 300 f/4 L; Canon EF 400 f/4 L. It'll keep your camera/longer lens combination considerably more stable on a tripod, while also giving you landscape/portrait rotational flexibility.

If you've been looking for one of these you'll already know that the price of the new OEM item is absurdly high for what it is. That said, buy one of the far more affordable knock-off versions at your own risk. Inferior metals cracking, hinges failing, roughness when rotating the lens between landscape and portrait orientation: all are the most frequently related tales of woe one reads on photography fora. Your expensive lens is in the balance, literally and metaphorically. If the cheapie fails but your lens survives you'll probably end up right back at square one looking for the OEM part.

This well-travelled piece certainly isn't going to win any beauty contests, but it's the real deal, 100% functional and 100% reliable. The soft lining of the ring, critical for smooth rotation of the lens, is as-new. The current equivalent new retails for well over twice this price.

In person, cash transaction only.
