The Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ 264AT Aluminum Tripod supports up to 15.4 lb, measures 19.9" when folded, and can be positioned to a maximum height of 59" with its push-and-pull, rapid center column fully raised. Its 4-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.
Tripod heads, cameras, lenses, or sport optics that are compatible with 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 male threads connect to 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 distances that are ideal for macro work. A tripod bag with shoulder strap is included for storage and transport.
MACC (Multi-Angle Center Column System):
With a unique quick action center column has simple and intuitive twist and lock positioning at any angle in 15° steps with a rotation range of -90° to +90°.
Central Column and Lock Mechanism
The mechanism offers one-handed, effortless smooth operation and rapid set-up, while the unique hexagonal central column ensures enhanced rigidity and stability.
Leg Angle Selector
Achieve ideal positioning and balance of the tripod to match any working terrain, by using the strong and steady 4-angle leg setting options of 20°, 40°, 60°, or 80°.
Fast 35° turn to lock or unlock ensures instant leg extension/retraction. This system is engineered to support a high load capacity in comparison with other tripods in its class.
The tripod is fitted with a 3/8"-16 threaded connector, which allow easy attachment of additional accessories, such as lighting equipment and articulated or flexible arms, thus offering users new creative possibilities.
Its many features include: fitted bubble level and dedicated suspension loop to ensure ideal positioning and additional stability by hanging a counterweight or bags; non-slip, all-weather TPU grips on 2 legs; angled rubber feet to ensure a secure grip on any terrain (spiked feet sold separately). Included tripod bag is designed to fit any standard head combo.
Vanguard Alta BH-100 Ball Head
The Vanguard Alta BH-100 is an Arca-type ball head that has a load capacity of 22.0 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount.
Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the included QS-60 V2 Quick Release Plate. The quick release plate can be attached or removed from the integrated clamp located at the top of the head's ball-and-socket joint by tightening or loosening the clamp's knurled, locking knob. Within the recessed surface between the clamp's jaws is a retaining pin. This pin prevents an installed QS-60 V2 Quick Release Plate from accidentally sliding off when the clamp is opened. The quick release plate features a rubberized, non-slip platform while two built-in bubble levels along the edges of the clamp accommodate landscape or portrait orientations.
By loosening the ball head's primary locking knob, the head's ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. Variable tension can be applied to the ball-and-socket joint's movements by rotating the friction knob located above the primary locking knob. Toward the side of the ball head opposite the primary locking knob is a secondary locking knob, which controls the ability to rotate the head 360°.
