Overview
  • 1Description

Vanguard's Alta Pro 284CB 100 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head is made of 6X carbon fiber to provide a lightweight and versatile camera support. The tripod has a maximum load capacity of 18 lb, extends to 63", and folds down to only 21.12", which makes it very easy to transport. The included SBH-100 ball head is an impressive, lightweight support that will keep equipment up to 22 lb securely and accurately positioned on your tripod, aided by two built-in bubble levels.

The 4-section legs can be independently positioned at 25, 50 and 80° to allow positioning of the tripod at low and unique angles and are quickly secured into position with one-twist leg locks. The center column has a tilting bracket which also helps to achieve unusual camera positioning and is spring-loaded to provide your equipment with protection against shocks and vibrations.

Vanguard's Single Piece Ball Unit Technology incorporates the ball head's ball and stem into one solid unit which provides a core strength that is resistant to degradation from everyday use. The Advanced Magnesium Housing System couples a rugged magnesium exterior with a hollow interior to provide the precision, fluid-like movements of a standard head minus any extraneous weight. This ball head only weighs 15.9 oz . It comes with two QS-39 quick release plates which make it easy and convenient to remove one camera from the ball head and replace it with another.

The Alta Pro 284 CT is a popular choice for those who need a tripod that is flexible, easy to set up, and meets the needs for landscape, wide angle and macro photography applications.

  • SBH-100 Ball Head

    Vanguard's SBH-100 Ball Head is an impressive, lightweight (15.9 oz, 450 g) support that will keep equipment up to 22 lb (10 kg) securely and accurately positioned on your tripod, aided by two built-in bubble levels.

    The two features that separate the SBH Series Ball Heads from others are Vanguard's Single Piece Ball Unit Technology that incorporates ball and stem into one solid unit which provides a core strength that is resistant to degradation from everyday use and the Advanced Magnesium Housing System which couples a rugged magnesium exterior with a hollow interior to provide the precision, fluid-like movements of a standard head minus extraneous weight. This head only weighs 15.9 oz (450 g).

    The SBH-100 comes with two QS-39 quick release plates which makes it really easy and convenient to remove one camera from the ball head and replace it with another.

    Advanced Magnesium Housing System
    An innovative advanced housing system couples a rugged magnesium exterior with a hollow interior, providing all of the precise, fluid-like movement of a standard fluid ball head without extraneous weight.
    Bubble Level
    SBH ball heads have two large built-in bubble levels. Combine the head's double vertical and horizontal balance/stability control with your tripod's bubble level and you cannot achieve more stable or more precise positioning.
    Double Locking System
    SBH ball heads have a double locking system, ensuring maximum security for your equipment. Two separate mechanisms are simultaneously triggered to release the quick release plate; you can be confident that your camera and lenses won't fall.
    Panoramic Function
    The SBH-100 has a dedicated horizontal control knob that enables you to take incredible panoramic shots with smooth, full 360° movement.

  • ABEO Pro 284CT Carbon Fiber Tripod

    The ABEO Pro 284CT Carbon Fiber Tripod from Vanguard is a set of tripod legs that have a load capacity of 17.6 lb, and weigh 5.1 lb. They can extend to 63" and fold down to 24.4" for transport.

    The tripod features a multi-angle center column system that allows you to move the central column from 0 to 180-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions. This makes macro photography and unique angle shots a breeze. Its Instant Swivel Stop-n-Lock (ISSL) System securely re-positions the center column in one simple movement, while maintaining the tripod's stability. When the center column is set in an angled position, a quick-adjustment lever lock makes pivoting the center column simple: flip the lock open, rotate the column to the desired position, and flip the lock closed. A ballast hook on the bottom of the center column allows you to hang a weight, adding stability to the tripod. A bubble level helps ensure your camera is even with the horizon.

    The tripod's legs feature flip locks and they individually adjust to 25°, 50°, and 80° angles with use of ergonomic release buttons for easy setup on uneven terrain or spreading out flat for low-angle photography. Three types of included feet provide an ideal solution for most surfaces. They include angled rubber feet, spiked feet, and a set of snow/sand shoes.
