Vanguard's Alta Pro 254 Carbon Fiber Tripod With SBH-50 Ball Head includes the Alta Pro 254CT tripod made of 6X carbon fiber to provide a lightweight (3.46 lb) but very sturdy and versatile camera support. It extends to 61", and folds down to only 20.9" which makes it easy to attach to a gear bag, or backpack. It has a maximum load capacity of 11 lb.

The included SBH-50 ball head is compact (3.5"), lightweight (10.2 oz), and features 2 bubble levels for precision attitude adjustment. It also has a safety locking system for quick release, and a single knob locking mechanism. This head increases camera stability and provides faster, more accurate camera positioning. 

The four-section legs, which can be independently positioned at 25, 50 or 80 degrees, add to this tripod's versatile positioning capabilities. The legs are quickly secured into their position with quarter-twist leg locks.

The tripod's 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. The column comes with a retractable weight hook from which you can attach a gear bag for added stability on any terrain.

Vanguard's Single Piece Ball Unit Technology incorporates the ball and stem of the ball head into one solid unit which provides a core strength that's resistant to degradation from everyday use. The ball head's 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 extraneous weight. The SBH-50 is supplied with two QS-39 quick release plates so you can easily alternate cameras on and off the ball head. 

The Alta Pro 254CT 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.
