Great features for the price
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Great features for the price,the grip is fairly difficult to micro adjust but great to adjust quickly and every conceivable angle is possible. The legs are strong and very sturdy if weighted but aren't as rigid as some similar priced tripods with carbon legs, but the head more than makes up for this.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Brilliant tripod that cover all angles. Easy to use.
superb quality and a superb price
Great tripod, brilliant feature list. The bag supplied is good quality but it will not contain the tripod with a pistol grip head attached.
Great macro photography tripod
A great tripod at a very realistic price, full of usful features, such as being able to adjust the angle of the center coloumn from 0º to 180º. The tripod extends to a very useable height for taller users or down to about 5cm. All that combined with it's ability to take up to 6kg load make it a true multy purpose tool.

Great Price Great Product
from Newton Abbot Devon
This is a great tripod at a FANTASTIC PRICE- some say its a touch heavy however i like my tripods like this as i find them more stable. i upgraded from the standard to the pistol grip. in my eyes this is a must, the pistol grip makes for fast changes and quick to lock. the lock is strong enough to hold my D800 and sigma 150-500 with no movement. It is well built and seems like it will last years.I hope this helps and I'm sure you will enjoy using it.

Vanguard Tripod Review
Mainly for macro work that has high magnification.As slow shutter speeds camera shake and mirror vibrations can ruin images, Also using the camera with a shutter release cable eliminates other possibilities
