Great Tripod

MrW, WEX

  • Summary: A little heavier than I thought it would be but a great tripod. Confident that it will hold the camera and the two plates enables me to leave one on my 70-200 lens. Good value and very adaptable.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features
  • Cons: Little Heavy

Excellent tripod!

DC Page, WEX

  • Summary: I have had this tripod for over a month now and subjected it to some challenging trials up here in Scotland. It's been dragged into rocky outcrops, rivers and various other places and has been fantastic. I decided to go for this model as I'd just bought the Vanguard Up Rise 46 bag and wanted to ensure a new tripod would fit into the amazing design holder on this, which it does perfectly.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls

Ball is bettter.

  • Summary: I'm trying to get into macro and this tripod enables you to get the camera into almost any position. An added surprise is the ball head which is great for positioning, smooth operating and easy to tighten. (previous tripod had a pan and tilt which was awkward to set up and secure.) The ball head is also great for using on a mini tripod and monopod which I have.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Slightly heavy

Great tripod!

Terry, Henrys

  • Summary: I was looking for something a little more than my "beginner" tripod that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg, and I found it with this one. I love the centre column that extends in all directions. Opens it up to so many options and creative opportunities. The legs extend in independent angles as well. The ball head is the smaller one, but perfect for my Canon Rebel T2i and my heaviest lens. There's a secure feature to keep the camera locked on.

Great tripod for a great price.

  • Summary: Ordered this combo about a month ago and am very pleased with it. The whole thing feels tight and when it is locked down, nothing moves...even a mm. The multi-angle center column has come in very handy for macro work. I have not given it a five star rating because when you are using the multi-angle center column, there is some movement when you tighten it. In other words, your composition will change.

De Vanguard Alta Pro

Hans Smink, cameranu.nl
7 October 2014
  • Excerpt: De Vanguard Altra Pro nu ruim een maand in gebruik. Het is een degelijk en makkelijk te bedienen statief met veel mogelijkheden. Ik fotografeer veel macro en daar komt de middenas die je horizontaal kan draaien goed tot z'n recht. Ook ben ik zeer tevreden over het balhoofd, die kan je in alle standen (360 graden) draaien. M'n spiegelreflex met SWD lens 50 x 200mm staat als een huis.
  • Pros: Degelijk statief, Prima balhoofd, Veel instelmogelijkheden, Voordelige prijs
  • Cons: Het stellen van de poten gaat niet altijd makkelijk
