Our take on the Canon TA-100 Tripod Adapter

by Woody Sherman

If you plan to use your professional XH A1S, XF100, or XF105 Canon camcorder with a tripod, you'll find this item to be a necessity. It will help attach your camera to any pro tripod securely, while still giving you quick one-handed access to a camera release for instant shoulder mounting in case you need to "go mobile" in a hurry. Precision machined metal construction ensures long-term reliability.

Overview: The Canon TA-100 Tripod Adapter allows you to quickly mount or un-mount a Canon professional camcorder to and from a tripod.

Compatibility: The TA-100 is compatible with the following camcorders:

  • EOS C300, EOS C300 PL
  • XF100, XF105, XF300, XF305
  • XH A1, XH A1S
  • XH G1, XH G1S

Mounting: The TA-100's base plate attaches to the camcorder with the included 4mm screws. The tripod adapter has three 3/8" mounting screw holes and four 1/4" standard mounting screw holes. The camcorder with the base plate mounted slides along the guide rails until it clicks and locks into place. The camcorder should be mounted to the tripod so that its weight is balanced. The tripod adapter has a release lever and a red unlock lever for quickly removing the camcorder from the tripod.

Solid construction

I knew this adapter was machined metal, but it wasn't until I took it out of the box that I realized just how rugged the TA-100 is. And that's good. Even the quick-release trigger is metal, so it will hold up to harsh treatment (I tend not to be gentle with these things). Only one problem; the TA-100 is actually better built than my tripod. Maybe it's time for an upgrade...
