Vanguard Alta Pro 2V 263CT Carbon Fiber Tripod
The Alta Pro 2V 263CT Carbon Fiber Tripod from Vanguard maintains your horizon leveled with its built-in 75mm leveling half ball and its two bubble levels on the top plate. The top plate accepts a head with a 3/8″-16 socket and has locking set screws that secure the head. With a load capacity of 55.8 kg, the tripod supports a spotting scope, a video camera, or a mirrorless or DSLR camera up to that weight comfortably.
The 1.5 kg, three section tripod has twist leg locks that disengage with a quarter turn, and at the top of each lock there is a marking that shows whether the lock is open or closed. Extending all the sections gets you a maximum height of 51.1″ and with multi-leg angles, you can splay the legs out completely to a minimum height 6.1″. There are four angles of 20, 40, 60, and 80° that are indicated with labeled degree markings. Additionally, the support folds down to 23.9″ for transport or storage, and the tripod legs feature rubber feet that prevent sliding on smooth surfaces and provide a better grip on uneven terrain.

The Vanguard ALTA PH-123V Magnesium Alloy Video Head is a compact and lightweight two-way fluid head with a 58mm flat base. It supports up to 8kg and can be directly mounted on a variety of support products thanks to the flat base. Attach it to tripods, monopods, sliders, and other gear via the 3/8″-16 threaded mounting hole on the bottom or using an included 3/8″-16 to 1/4″-20 bushing.
The head provides 360° pan and 60 to -90° tilt movement and features an adjustable spring-loaded counterbalance system that ensures ideal balance for your tilt position.
