The ABEO Pro 284ATB Aluminum Tripod with Ball Head from Vanguard combines the 284AT legs with the TBH-100 ball head. The tripod weighs 6.6 lb, and has a load capacity of 17.6 lb. It can extend up to 67", and folds down to 27.2".

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.

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.

The TBH-100 ball head is an Arca-type compatible head, with a 38-mm quick-release plate. It has a clamp locking-knob that enables fine camera placement adjustments when the plate is attached, without risk of accidental release, thanks to its built-in safety pin. An oversized, easy-to-grip lever can be re-positioned easily for comfortable use and provides secure locking, so your gear stays in place, no matter the angle. An anodized surface on the ball ensures it will remain scratch free and provide ultra-smooth and precise movements.
