How do you guys support a big lens that doesn't have a collar?

Nobody "hulks it" anymore.

True, but occasionally, you really do NEED a tripod.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II    ---    47mm    f/7.1    1/125s    ISO 100

The pinterest account hosting that image did not identify the lens, sadly. I did a little googling but couldn't find an exact match. He/she did appear to be a Nikon fan. I found Nikon apparently made a set of two-piece super long telephotos (I saw one at 1200mm). There was a focus mechanism that was separate, and you attached this to one of the lenses (I think there were three of them). But there were other brands of really long lenses, too, so I cannot be sure it was Nikon.

Et voila! 11 days shipping. Seems quite substantial, and for whatever shim adjustments I may decide are needed later, they have actually included a tiny hex key!

A little hard to see with all the back ground stuff.
Is this the holder that clamps on the adapter?
Or the adapter that has the built-in attachment feature for the tripod?

Yep, that's it - surprisingly small, yet solid-feeling and well-balanced. I've put a QR foot on as well.

The adapter in place, showing the detachable tripod mount - which threads onto the adapter ring via the knurled knob (with QR added).
Well worth the few bucks!
