Vanguard's Alta Pro 253CT Carbon Fiber Tripod is made of carbon fiber to provide a lightweight (3.66 lb, 1.66 kg) but very sturdy and versatile camera support. The tripod has a maximum load capability of 15.4 lb (7 kg), extends to 65" (1.65 m), and folds down to only 24.8" (63cm) which makes it easy to attach to a gear bag, or backpack.

The center column has a tilting bracket which can rotate a full 360 degrees from a standard vertical position. It is a key feature to help you position the tripod and your equipment at unusual angles. Plus, the column is spring loaded to provide your equipment with protection against shocks. The column comes with a retractable weight hook from which you can attach a gear bag or removable stone bag (not included) for added stability on any terrain.

The three-section legs are quickly secured into their position with one-twist leg locks. Rubber feet with retractable spikes help secure the legs on rough terrain.

The Alta Pro 253CT is a popular choice for those who need a tripod that is flexible and easy to set up. It meets the needs for landscape, wide angle and macro photography and a wide range of other applications. A tripod head is NOT included.

Supports up to 15.4 lb (7 kg); up to 11 lb (5 kg) when center column is tilted.
The Alta Pro has an innovative Multi-Angle Center Column (MACC) system which allows you to move the column from zero to 360 degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions. The multi-angle center column can be used for low and unique angles that you could never achieve with a conventional column.
Upper leg sections have all-weather rubber grips to protect your hands under any weather conditions.
An Instant Swivel Stop-n-Lock (ISSL) system securely repositions the center column in one simple movement, in just a few seconds, while maintaining the tripod's balance and stability. This feature makes ultra-wide angle and macro photography a breeze.
The tripod has a built-in bubble level to aid in obtaining an accurate horizontal position.
Your investment is protected with the manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty.
All Vanguard pan heads and ball heads will fit on the 253CT.
