        Comments about Vanguard Alta+ 264AO Tripod W/PH-31 Panhead:

        This tripod is great for Optics such as Spotting Scopes and Binoculars. The Panhead move smoothly to allow searching. It is light weight and easy to expande the legs. If you want a tripod for Photography get a different panhead with the 264 series.

        Poorly designed panhead

        • Sturdy tripod


        • Horrible tiltpan deign

        Best Uses

          Comments about Vanguard Alta+ 264AO Tripod W/PH-31 Panhead:

          The tripod itself is sturdy and decently designed. The problem relates to the panhead. The worst possible idea they could have was put the tension lock for both the tilt and pan on the same knob. This prevents you from locking only one axis at a time for any normal pan shots. This makes the tripod utterly worthless for filming. If you just want a tripod for still photography you would be better off with getting a ballhead.
