  • Summary: This tripod is very sturdy well and made. Met my expectations and beyond. The pistol grip is the best part of the unit. I will never purchase another tri pod without a pistol grip. I can not say enough good about this item.

Excellent design

Ab, Adorama
24 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this tripod for interiors and macro. Also HDR outdoor work. It's best for normal use up and down. The laterally extending arm on other models would come in handy but this one works well for me. I love the pistol grip. My only complaint is the location if the bubble. It's in the camera mount instead of being on the exterior. There should be two.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly

Durable and Versatile

SouthSideQ, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Although on the heavy side of the scale, this tripod is solid and a great entry-level buy for a tripod. My first trip out involved shooting on hillsides and it worked very well. I was comfortable leaving my mid-level DSLR and a 70-200 piece of glass unattended. Confidence can be enhanced if you use the weight hook on the bottom. Wouldn't recommend it for lumping around the city or woods all day, but adequate for shorter trips.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Durable, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion
  • Cons: Heavy

Review of Vanguard Alta+ 263AGH with GH-100 Ball Head

Anant, homeshop18
5 April 2013
  • Summary: This Vanguard Tripod model weighs 2.156 kg and is capable of handling 5kg of weight. Thus it is suitable for most of the Digital Single Lens Reflex Cameras with light weight standard zoom lenses. The Bubble Level of the tripod helps you stabilize the tripod so that you can get a perfect shot which is parallel to the ground level.

This is a sub-standard 'Indian' version

Vinayak Raghuv..., flipkart.com
30 November 2012
  • Summary: The Vanguard Alta + 263 that my friend got from the US is better. It has two things that our Indian version is MISSING: 1. a switch that flips out an attachment where you can mount your center vertical column horizontally. Very useful when you want to shoot at ground level. You can look at videos in YouTube that will show the US version in action. Not permitted to post the link in my review. 2. a level indicator outside, on the top of one of the legs.

STativ stabil, Stativkopf nach 6 Monaten nicht mehr intakt

Pinselchen "Pinselchen", Amazon
28 September 2013
  • Summary: Ich erwarb das Stativ Ende März d.J., d.h. ich nutze es nun genau 6 Monate. Die Stabilität des STativs ist gut. ich habe eine Canon 60D und das größte Objektiv das EF-s 70-300mm. Die Einstellungsmöglichkeiten und das Handling sind ganz gut. Die Haltbarkeit d Stativkopfes (Pistolengriff GH100) war bislang ganz gut (bei Hochformateinstellungen, wenn man die Panoramascheibe lösen/feststellen muss, sackte die kamera immer etwas zu weit nach unten) Nun hat sich dieser...
