The Really Right Stuff TFC-13S [wrong part number, mine might be a prototype from last year] came in very handy this morning for shooting macro work at low height with the Sony A7R III and Sigma FE 70mm f/2.8 macro.
TFC-14 MK2 / TQC-14 MK2 TRIPODS (taller, up to 4 feet high)
While the Really Right Stuff TFA-01 ULTRA Pocket Pod is superb for ultra-low shots, this new short tripod TFC-13S is ideal for shots from about 8 inches to 2.5 feet off the ground.
The picture below shows why the new Really Right Stuff “shorty” model is so appealing for some kinds of work. The new shorty tripod is much faster and easier to get into the proper height and position versus a full-size tripod, particularly with the PG-01 Compact Pano-Gimbal Head. I just loved the time savings and ease of use! The 3 sections afford a working-height range that seems ideal for many types of shooting at close range, but it could also serve well set up on a table or rock, etc (for additional height). An optional integrated hand strap for carrying in the field was super handy also (and which I’d like to have on my larger tripods).

Great tool. I use the Canon 6D2 with a fully tilting LCD for low lying macro shots (flowers). Much appreciated by my aging back. It is full frame with 26 mp.
The tripod you featured is just what I need.
DIGLLOYD: yep, it’s much better for lower level shots.
