The Vanguard Alta Pro 263AB 100 Aluminium Tripod with SBH-100 Ball Head has unmatched flexibility and stability and enables more angle possibilities than ever before. Its Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC) System allows users to move the centre column from 0 to 180-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions making macro-photography and special wide-angle shots a breeze. The Instant Swivel Stop-n-Lock (ISSL) System securely repositions the centre column in one simple movement while maintaining the tripod’s stability. Other features include advanced camera vibration and shock control, legs that adjust to 25, 50 and 80-degree angles, patented premium magnesium die-cast canopy and head, hexagon-shaped centre column for extra stability, quick-flip leg locks, non-slip spiked rubber feet for changing terrains and a removable hook for hanging camera accessories. The SBH-100 fluid-like ball head rotates 360 degrees and has smooth locking knobs, an outstanding loading capacity and fine-tuning functions. More
SBH-100 precision-cut ball head moves swiftly and steadily so you won’t miss the action. Constructed of solid, strong magnesium alloy, it\'s durable and yet lighter in weight than the industry standard. Unlike other ball heads, SBH ball heads are designed with molded body parts, not assembled cut parts, like the competition. Its smooth locking knobs allow you to move the ball head swiftly and securely into the perfect position, even with the heaviest lenses and cameras. It includes two bubble levels, 360-degree scale, fine-tuning knob and a safety lock for extra stability. A special universal VANGUARD quick shoe for body/lens is also included so you can upgrade your system to quick-release immediately.

Comments about Vanguard Alta Pro 263AB 100 Aluminium Tripod with SBH-100 Ball Head:
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. I've not yet had to use the included rock bag for stability as it holds it's own pretty well so far. It's not the lightest tripod I'm sure, but it's not that heavy either and I've happily trekked with it attached to the bag. The ball head has nice smooth fluid movement making setting up shots really easy and the fact that the central column slides out and allows really low level shooting is fantastic....watch the videos online to see how adaptable this model is. I would highly recommend this product, and TIPA already have!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Ball is bettter.
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.
