The Vanguard Alta Pro 263AT Aluminium Tripod has unmatched flexibility, stability and enables more angle possibilities than ever before. Its innovative Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC) System allows users to move the central column from zero 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 central column in one simple movement, in just a few seconds, 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 central column for extra stability, quick-flip leg locks, non-slip spiked rubber feet for changing terrains and a removable hook for hanging camera accessories. A tripod bag with shoulder strap is included. More

I was really excited about this tripod having seen the reviews and videos on the web. I had mine delivered, got it out of the box and put the centre column at 90 degrees and now it is stuck there. I am really gutted I was really looking forward to getting out and about with it. The orange switch on the centre column just will not move. I am not looking forward to the prospect and sending it back and getting a refund. I was wary of getting a cheaper alternative to a Monfrotto. This has now put me off buying the Vanguard.[[ASIN:B0046GHEVC VANGUARD Alta Pro 263AGH Aluminium Tripod with GH-100 Pistol Grip Ball Head]]

Vanguard Alta Pro 263AT Aluminium Tripod
I would have liked to have deducted just a quarter of a star if I could for the rather clumsy way the quick-shoe is connected to the camera. This necessitates the use of the provided key. Other manufacturers have a sprung key that folds flat under the shoe. It's churlish of me to complain about this small detail but it's magnified by the excellence of the design, engineering and construction of the rest of this tripod.

If you are a photographer frustrated by trying to find stability in awkward situations, or need extra stability in windy conditions or would like a piece of equipment to match your six-foot frame, then this is one for you to consider. First the height; it extends to eye level viewing for a 6 feet plus tall person. If it has a fault, the stability fully extended is not as great as some but for the price, stability is good and can be enhanced by use of the supplied "stone bag" which hooks under the central column. The central column is a work of art ! It can be raised by about 40cm but that's to be expected. The wonder is that it can be detached and reassembled at virtually any angle and can be extended to reach out to that beetle that won't pick a leaf at the edge of the border. If you want, you can rotate the column by 180 degrees and scrape the ground surface to get that special perspective. And I nearly left out that the legs will splay from normal position to almost flat. This is a super piece of equipment and the price is all the more surprising for that.
