Summary: This is the first quality tripod I've purchased. So far, it works as advertised. I'm using a Canon EOS Rebel T1i w/ this tripod and it holds the camera with zoom lens securely. Can be converted to macro photography easily, and Vertical and horizontal positioning is relatively smooth. There are several pan heads that can be purchased separately for use on this tripod. I would recommend this tripod to friends and those who are beginning photographers.
Excerpt: This is the first tripod I've purchased. Before this I used a cheap "freebie" that required more physical compensation than I realized. One thing I've learned is that I don't use something if I don't like it; which meant it was time to buy a real tripod. I looked at all "known" brands and made the comparisons like all careful consumers do. I choose the Vanguard because of its exceptional build quality at this price point.
Pros: Easy to use, Excellent value, Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: this tripod from vanguard altra+ 263 AP is really very amazing tripod. normal people might not get to know its real worth. but the people who are into photography will know what wonders it can do after using it. it adjusts so well at different angels.. unfolds and gets fold up very easily..
Excerpt: A good choice for the beginning DSLR owner, it is a value for money tripod. Also appropriate for pro use in the field, video enthusiasts will appreciate its versatility. Though a bit heavy and large, but is perfect for all other situations.
Summary: This is really a best tripod. Pros: - Good anti shock ring on center column - Three-section legs with quick-release tabs is really awesome. - Well-designed 3-way alloy pan head - The rotation is smooth. - It comes with a standard carrying case Cons: - Need to remove handles while keeping it in carrying case.
Summary: I used this tripod with Canon 60D. It works perfectly well. The pan and tilt arm is very smooth. I recommend this product for photography and home video purpose. It comes with the tripod bag which is also of high quality, only glitch is that you have to remove any one of the handle of the head before putting it in the bag. Flipkart delivered it on time in very nice packaging.
Excerpt: Очень хорошее соотношение цена - качество.
Pros: Надежный, устойчивый, ход головы плавный без рывков, есть встроенные шипы (можно прятать внутри резиновой ножки), очень удобный, бюджетный вариант... Вес в 2кг, для штатива, скорее плюс, чем недостаток... при том, что чехол в комплекте.
Cons: Мелковаты шкалы уровней, но это уже скорее придирки, чем реальный недостаток.
