The A100 with a crown size of 6 inches/15.24 cm is for long lens digital cameras with digital backs, professional video cameras, and 8 x 10 and larger format cameras up to 75 pounds/ 34 kg. Ries A Series Tripods feature the Tri-Lock mechanism making them the most stable tripod in the industry. They are made standard from Eastern Hard Rock Maple or custom made from one of our Special wood selections.
The A100 is available with 1/4″-20 or 3/8″-16 mounting screws. With the standard anodized aluminum knobs the A100 weighs just 12 pounds/5.44 kg. Optional bronze knobs are available for an additional $96, and add one (1) pound/.45 kg to the total weight. Tripods come with the traditional Star Knobs, but you can request the Radial Knobs if they are preferred. The A Series Head is recommended for use with this tripod. Maximum camera weight is 75 lbs / 34 kg, when used in conjunction with an A Series Head. If you prefer a tripod at a different height, please contact us or call and we can customize a tripod for you, up to an additional 12 inches/30.48 cm, for an additional charge. Custom orders are always welcome.
All Performances are based on Ries models manufactured after January 2014 when the Ries factory converted from cast aluminum to the current wrought 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. Though similar in appearance to the older cast aluminum the older Ries models are not rated to the same specifications as our newer models.
