The Vanguard ABEO Pro 284CT 4-section carbon fiber tripod combines Vanguard's most celebrated innovations to help take your photography to the next level. The ABEO Pro Multi-Angle Central Column system allows users to move the central column from 0 to 180-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions, making macrophotography and unique 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. When the central column is set in an angled position, a Quick Adjustment lever lock makes pivoting the central column simple; flip the lock open, rotate the column to the desired position and flip the lock closed. The ABEO Pro legs feature quick-flip locks and individually adjust to 25, 50 and 80 degree angles with use of ergonomic release buttons for easy setup on uneven terrain or spreading out flat for super low angle photography.
