About Vanguard 283CT

Photographers can say goodbye to missing incredible shots and fumbling with their tripods. VANGUARD Alta Pro tripod fuses convenience, flexibility and stability to help photographers take breathtaking, unique shots, safely and at unbelievable speed. Alta Pro expands your creative opportunities so you'll never miss the perfect shot again.

With several design patents pending, Alta Pro may change the industry's standards for tripod design. Unlike traditional tripods, Alta Pro's Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC) System allows users to move the central column as needed from zero to 130-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions. This allows more angle possibilities than ever before.

Its Instant Swivel Stop-n-Lock (ISSL) System feature allows photographers to securely reposition the central column in one simple movement, in just a few seconds, while maintaining the tripod's stability.

Designed to support an array of camera types including DSLR and video cameras, camera setup is quick and easy. Alta Pro's design also enables macro photography and special wide-angle shots with additional attachments that can be mounted to either end of the central column.

Other features include:
• Advanced camera vibration and shock control
• Legs that adjust to 25, 50 and 80-degree angles with a simple push of easy-release button
• Patented premium magnesium, die-casted canopy
• Hexagon-shaped central column for extra stability
• Non-slip, spiked rubber feet Alta Pro is available in three models.
