To be used with the Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports lens (different to the Tripod supplied with lens).
The lens foot can replace the original lens’s supplied foot, making it possible to directly attach the lens to the Arca Swiss platforms and screw knob clamps.
Compatible products: 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM｜Sports, 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports, 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports, 500mm F4 DG OS HSM | Sports
TRIPOD SOCKET TS-81 is an optional lens foot which can be attached to the SIGMA 500mm F4 DG OS HSM | Sports, 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM｜Sports, 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports and 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports. It is compatible with the Arca Swiss quick release plate and the clamp. The deliberately designed length of its rail provides the flexibility to adjust the center of gravity making it balance perfectly, even while zooming or using accessories, such as a tele converter and battery pack. Consideration has been given to the portability and transportation of the lens when Tripod Socket TS-81 is attached. The lens hood can still be reversed and the lens stored in its original padded case, even with the Tripod Socket TS-81 attached. Incorporated into the Tripod Socket are safety stopper screws to prevent the lens from falling. There are 2 sizes of screw holes, 1/4 and 3/8, making it compatible with tripods other than Arca Swiss, too. When it is compared to the supplied tripod socket, it offers more space between the lens and device, and the change of grip has improved the usage as a handle for carrying.
Caution (Tripod socket compatible with Arca Swiss type screw knob clamp)
- This product is compatible with the Arca Swiss screw knob clamp. Please ensure that it is screwed and fixed tightly. This product is not designed for lever type clamps. There are some lever clamps available that do not fix firmly and safely.
- Please ensure that 2 Safety Stopper Screws (supplied) are always fixed so that the Arca Swiss clamp will not fall off.
