From the Manufacturer
This CowboyStudio Tripod Collar Mount Ring is very lightweight and portable and would be a great addition to your studio. The TR-1 tripod mount ring replaces Canon Tripod Mount Ring A-2. This tripod ring mounts on the tripod and helps you fix and balance your lens. This helps if your lens is heavy or if you have a long lens hanging off the front of camera.
This tripod mount ring fits Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM, EF 300mm f/4L USM, and EF 400mm f/5.6L USM SLR lenses. This tripod mount ring also has a fabric interior so it will not damage your lens. By adding a tripod collar to your lens you can achieve better balancing on a tripod. In addition, rotating the camera will now be much easier and faster.
- Fits Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L and EF 70-200mm f/4L IS lenses
- Made by metal with high quality
- Attach the Canon 70-200mm lens to your camera body.
- Loosen the thumbscrew on the tripod collar, which goes around the camera's lens, to completely to open it up.
- Put the tripod collar around the lens where the depression to accommodate the collar is, between the two rotating black rings on the lens.
- Tighten the tripod ring nearly all the way with the thumbscrew, making sure the fit is snug, but not so snug that the collar cannot rotate.
- Rotate the tripod ring around so that the protruding foot is facing the bottom of the camera.
- Carefully align the foot of the tripod ring so that it is parallel with the bottom of the camera body.
- Tighten the thumbscrew you loosened earlier to make sure the lens, and thus the camera, does not rotate unnecessarily.
- Screw the tripod plate into the screw hole on the bottom of the foot of the tripod ring. Make sure you tighten it fully to avoid any surprise drops or looseness when handling the camera.
- Reattach the tripod plate and attached camera to your tripod or monopod carefully, taking caution not to jostle or bump the lens excessively. Most likely, the lens can take what you dish out, but the kinder you are to your equipment, the kinder it will be to you.
- Photograph as you normally would on a tripod or monopod. If you need to rotate the camera from landscape to portrait mode you can loosen the thumbscrew on the tripod collar, grab the camera body, and turn. The lens will rotate within the tripod ring, allowing it to move smoothly from one orientation to the other or anything in between. When you are finished rotating, tighten the tripod collar to lock the camera lens and camera in place.

The other day on a whim, I did a quick search of ebay and Amazon.com for a mounting ring. I came across the Cowboy mounting ring and it's very low price. I read all of the reviews and decided to order one to see how good it is. The mount came in the mail today and I could not be any happier!
The mounting ring is 100% made of Aluminum, except for the rubber material that is mounted inside the lens ring to protect the lens and to hold it from shifting. The ring fits every bit as tight as the Original Canon ring, it operates as smoothly and the finish is every bit as good; except for one thing.....it is a touch to white in color to match the L series lens color. Perish the Thought! OMG! The Color is slightly off between my lens and it's mount! OMG! Now the photo gods are not going to allow me to take any more beautiful photos because of the mismatch! I guess I am doomed to go photo less for the rest of my life (or at least until I buy a Canon mount). Hey, I know what I'll do! I'll cover everything with Camouflage for wildlife photos. or I'll only take photos after dark, so the camera fashion police don't see me!
All in all, I feel that I made a dog-gone good buy on this product!
The actual build quality of the plastic ring mount is okay. The color is close to the color of the 70-200 IS F/4, but certainly not exact.
When the lens is mounted, the ring holds securely and the lens doesn't rotate. However, with the plastic construction, I get this mild feeling of panic that something horrible is going to happen and my camera and lens will fall out of the mount.
While I certainly don't need the $150 OEM one to feel safe with my lens, I'd feel slightly better with a metal ring.
The item isn't bad enough that I will pay to ship it back to Amazon, but I don't think this will get a lot of use. I ordered a slightly higher priced mount and we'll see if that one is metal.
By the way, Canon should be slightly ashamed about not including a mount with a $1,200 lens. Keep your crappy felt bag and give me something useful with the lens.
First of all, it has "some" metal in it, but it is most certainly NOT a metal ring. The thumb-screw and a tiny bit of the base are metal (for the tripod screw mount), but the rest of the ring is plastic. I scraped through the paint and it is just plastic. If you peel off some of the soft liner tape you discover that it is - wait for it - hollow plastic! No, it is not "lightweight" aluminum. It is p-l-a-s-t-i-c.
It also is not at all what is shown in the picture. Instead it is identical to this other product, Rainbowimaging Tripod Collar Mount Ring for the Canon Ef 70-200mm F/4l Usm, Ef 300mm F/4l Usm, & Ef 400mm F/5.6l USM SLR Lenses, which if you note makes no claims to be anything but a cheap plastic collar.
I feel kinda ripped off with this product. I wasn't expecting much for the price, but I'm not going to be dumb enough to trust my $1400 lens and $2000 body to a $10 piece of plastic.
I'm ordering the Fotodiox Pro, Premium Grade Tripod Mount Lens Collar for Canon EOS EF USM Lenses, 70-200mm F4L, 300mm F4L and 400mm F5.6L Lenses as Canon A-2 Collar - more than I wanted to pay but at least it's all metal.
