About Vanguard 283

Vanguard's top-of-the-line Auctus Plus 283AT tripod is loved by photographers for its stability and flexibility. It's designed to go from a studio to an outdoor shoot in a snap. Its ultra-smooth Extreme Support Height Positioning (ESHP) Wheel System is a dual-function wheel gear that adjusts central column height securely while supporting heavy gear. This advanced gear wheel also enables precise height fine tuning, while holding an extreme loading weight.

Auctus Plus' leg locks are exceptionally solid, secure and seal out dust and sand to provide impressive reliability. Setup is quick, too, with one-twist-to-loosen locks. Unique All-terrain Feet convert from anti-rust spikes to angled, textured rubber for use on an array of terrains. It's flexible, too, with legs that adjust to 25, 50 and 80-degree angles for use on uneven terrain and for low-angle photography. Other features include an innovative locking camera screw wheel, large bubble level, anti-shock ring, leg scales for precise height adjustment, rubber foam grips and bonus snow shoes.
