The Vanguard Alta+ 263AP 3-Section Aluminum Tripod with PH-32 3-Way Pan Head offers generous height, a sleek & modern design, and safety features that will keep you mounting your gear on it for years to come.
Backpackers and other outdoor photographers will be well-served by the Alta+ 263AP, which reaches a maximum height of 64" and supports up to 11 lb. The tripod features spikes that emerge from its rubber feet, and its removable center column hook supports a ballast for added stability under windy conditions. At 4.4 lb with the head, the 263AP is highly portable.
The included PH-32 is removable and features smooth, fluid-style movement with a side-to-side tilt of -60° to +90° and -30° to +90° of back-to-front tilt. The head, which comes with a QS-51 camera plate, features an independent lock of its 360° panning, which aids in panoramic photography. The tripod collar features set screws, so with an Allen wrench you can establish an extremely strong connection with the head.
