The Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ 263AT Aluminum Tripod supports up to 15.4 lb, measures 24.6" when folded, and can be positioned to a maximum height of 64" with its push-and-pull, rapid center column fully raised. Its 3-section legs each feature an independent 20°, 40°, 60°, or 80° spread as well as 35° twist locks for rapid adjustments. Non-slip, all-weather TPU grips on two of the legs provide a secure, comfortable grip while moving the tripod, and rubber feet enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces. The center column has a hook for attaching a counterweight for even greater stability.
Tripod heads, cameras, lenses, or sport optics that are compatible with 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 male threads connect to the top of the tripod's stable, hexagonal, cross arm-type center column that can be positioned horizontally like a small boom in in 15° increments. This allows for a very low minimum working of 15.4" that's ideal for macro work. A tripod bag with shoulder strap is included for storage and transport.
MACC (Multi-Angle Center Column) System
The innovative Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC) System allows users to move the central column from zero to 180-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions making macro-photography and special wide-angle shots easy.
Leg Angle Selector
Achieve ideal positioning and balance of the tripod to match any working terrain, by using the 3-angle leg setting options of 20°, 40°, 60°, or 80°.
Rugged Build and Stability Features
The patented premium magnesium die-cast canopy and head, hexagon-shaped central column for extra stability, and non-slip, spiked rubber feet for changing terrains.
Vanguard Alta BH-300 Ball Head
The Alta BH-300 Ball Head from Vanguard is a 1.3 lb Arca-type head that can support cameras that weigh up to 66.1 lb. Located inside the clamp is a safety pin that prevents the plate from sliding out if the clamp is partially opened. Moreover, the 4.6" tall head has three separate knobs to control it; the main locking knob governs the movement of the ball, the friction control knob adds or decreases drag on the ball per your comfort level, and the third knob enables the ball head to pan a full 360°.
A single-cut notch on the side allows a mounted camera to move in a 90° vertical angle. Mounting the ball head to a tripod is easily done via the 3/8"-16 thread, but a 1/4"-20 bushing adapter is included for those tripods with a smaller thread. Additionally, a QS-60 V2 Quick Shoe is also included with the ball head.
