heavy-duty tripod

photoRamone, Adorama
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: This is an Additional tri-pod for me, but I wanted something a little more substantial for the times I'm using long lenses and for the times I want to hang-out for Macro shots. This purchase from Adorama was just another fine example of customer trusting a business and the business respecting the wishes of the "buyer". I've had nothing but a great relationship with all the people at adorama, and as it happens the great quality products come at a great price.

Altra Pro 264ST Ball Head SBH-100

SoHillGuy, Adorama
26 October 2013
  • Excerpt: When I set up the tripod, the tripod level showed it to be level. When the level bubbles on the Quick Shoe were leveled, the ball head was not actually leveled. I modified a travel trailer level (a round single bubble level) to slide onto the QS plate. After this bubble was leveled, the attached QS levels were not level. I also noticed if the ball head was rotated the trailer level bubble did not retain level.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Heavy

Rock solid excellant value

Waco Kid, Adorama
17 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Great rig for micro four/thirds which are lighter and smaller than most dslr set ups. The spirit levels are a great aid to make sure eveything is lined up just right. I returned it to get a smaller ballhead to fit the plate from my Peak Design Capture camera clip system. Vanguard stiil provides a great value for the money.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Nice Tripod

Tracy in Waxahachie, Adorama
23 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I absolutely love this tripod. The only con is the weight but at times it is a benefit. It also has a hook on the center column for extra weight. I find that my heavy dslr with flash/flash bracket in portrait mode tends to be top heavy. Not an issue with the tripod. Center column is easy to work but it is a little harder with camera attached but my camera is heavy so....
  • Pros: 4 sections, Excellent center column, Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly, Weight hook
  • Cons: Heavy

Beautifully made and great price.

  • Summary: I predict that their prices will sky rocket at some point. I don't see how they can make such an excellent--stable, easy to operate and beaufifully made--tripod at such a low price. I also have a 263AT and a more expensive 283AT which is heavier, more expensive but with a geared center column. It is the ideal studio tripod.

Vanguard Alta Pro 264 AT

Roy W, Adorama
22 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I used this tripod on macro photography of wildflowers, insects & butterflies. I find the multi-angle central column very helpful especially when shooting close subjects. Also the tripod has low angles that I can shoot close to the ground, i.e when making images of children frolicking on the grass.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight
