The legs can all be adjusted individually to 3 different angles (25° 50° 80°) for uneven terrain and low angle shooting.
The dual locking safety mechanism and anti-shock ring prevent the damage that can be caused by camera vibration and will eliminate any worries you might have about your equipment falling from the tripod during transportation.

The ergonomic handle, easy to lock panhead and splicing handle for carrying are just a few of the additional features offered by this series.

SBH ball heads offer a hassle-free experience. SBH ball heads move swiftly and steadily so you won't miss the action. Constructed of solid, strong magnesium alloy, they're durable and yet lighter in weight than the industry standard.

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.

SBH ball head enhance your angle possibilities, too. Each model tilts from -35° to 90° (from -40° for the SBH-300) and can hold equipment up to 30kg. With seven models of varying sizes, SBH ball heads start at less than 200g (SBH-20P) to 750g (SBH-300) and can hold equipment up 30 kg. All feature a dual 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.
