Hailed as one of the world's most lightweight and compact high-quality tripods, the Vanguard Alta+ 233AO Aluminum Tripod was designed by professional photographers to meet the most demanding requirements. The Alta+ is perfect for air travel and backpacking. It combines ultra-stability, durability, ease of use, and reliability every photographer needs, all in a sleek, modern design. The 23mm aluminum alloy legs on the Alta+ adjust to 25°, 50°, and 80° angles with simple push of easy-release buttons for easy terrain changes and low-angle shooting.
Quick-flip leg locks make height adjustments on the Alta+ simple and secure. Thick foam on the upper part of each leg makes the tripod easy and comfortable to handle in cold or wet weather. Rubber-capped fee prevent the legs from slipping. Other features include advanced camera vibration and shock control, patented premium magnesium die-cast canopy and PH-21 pan head, and a removable hook for hanging camera accessories. The backup safety lock for the camera plate has an automatic closure (quick shoe), larger camera plate, and professional head feature (fluid, patented, and with one bubble level) to optimize adjustments and provide great pre- and post-shoot precision.
