  • Excerpt: Solid tripod, not as sturdy as some of the most expensive ones, but does the job well. In heavy wind, with longer lenses, there will be some vibrations. I don't have a high end tripod to compare to, but that was the only case where it was inadequate - 300mm lens in windy conditions.
  • Pros: quite stable when legs are spread out, lots of configurations, smooth ballhead, build quality
  • Cons: not as stable with extended center column, prone to sand damage (but all tripods are)

Stable with amazing possibilities

  • Summary: Exteneding the legs is a little tough... Should wear in time. Pretty sure my Manfrotto struggled from this all those years back. Quickplate system on Vanguard heads is a little different, not better, but not worse than Manfrotto quick release system.
  • Pros: I upgraded from a Manfrotto 190XB series to this. I paired it with a Vangaurd ballhead (SBH-250) and am really enjoying the angles I use accomplish with this very stable tripod. Roughly 5 lbs with the head attached, not bad for an aluminum tripod. Tripod has a level and with a few twists, spiked ...
  • Cons: Bag that comes with it seems to fit the legs fine. Add a SBH-250 ballhead and no matter what it is sticking up past the bag. Not a dealbreaker. Vanguard suggested the Alta+ Bag 70 for this setup and it is very affordable based on what they told me. Manfrotto legs worked at one more angle, but I n...

Excellent Tripod

  • Summary: Some reported claims of splitting adapter screw and equipment. The adapter screw is a standard conversion nut with treads on the inside & outside. Once everything is mounded together the threads are totally confined & I just can't envision failure due to it splitting into two pieces.
  • Pros: Great Price. Stable. Tripod & mounted ball head with quick disconnect fit in furnished carrying case.
  • Cons: None.

Good enough for me

  • Summary: I spent weeks agonising on a tripod for my budget. This ticked all the boxes in terms of features I required, including the flexibility of creating macro pictures. I was aware before I bought it the shortcomings of the ballhead - less control than the next model up - but for me it's not an issue.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features

"mooi produkt"

  • Excerpt: sinds 2 weken eigenaar ALTA PRO 264 AT en ik ben uiterst tevreden. Is zeer stabiel en veranderen van positie gaat vlot en snel en je kan er bijna alle kanten mee uit. Prijs/kwaliteit is het een goede aankoop en voor de amateurfotograaf een aanrader.
