Davis & Sanford Vista Explorer VTB overview

  • 1Description

Capable of reaching heights of up to 63" and going as low as 7.5", the Vista Explorer VTB Tripod from Davis & Sanford is a versatile support system designed for holding DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. It comes complete with an all-way ball head that tilts up to 90°, a QR plate with a 1/4"-20 screw for easy attachment and release, and a padded carrying bag for transport. Thanks to its aluminum construction, the tripod has a low weight of 3 lb while still safely supporting gear up to 8 lb.

Four leg sections operated by lever locks and a two-segment center column are used to allow the Explorer to reach its maximum height, and can be completely collapsed for a comfortable carrying length of 21". Each leg can be independently adjusted to three different angles, and features a soft pad on the top section that acts as a hand warmer and protector. The ball head has a bubble level right next to the plate, and the base of the tripod comes fitted with both a bubble level and a small compass for precise positioning. If increased stability is required, you can place a sandbag or other heavy weight on the ballast hook at the bottom of the center column, or expose the spike on the rubber feet for use in rough terrain.

  • Aluminum tripod capable of a maximum extension of 63", can be lowered to a height of 7.5" or folded down to 21" in length
  • Compact and lightweight design at 3 lb, supports gear with a 1/4"-20 mount and weighing up to 8 lb
  • Ball head operated by a single lock and with a tilt range of 90°, comes equipped with a quick release plate for ease of use
  • Four-section legs that can be fastened or released via lever locks, capable of being set to three different support angles independently from one another
  • Two bubble levels, one on the ball head and one on the tripod, and a compass for simplified leveling and positioning
  • Ballast hook found at the bottom of the center column, allows a weight to be placed for increased stability
  • Adjustable rubber spike feet help avoid skidding in most types of terrain
  • Carrying bag included with the product for safe transportation

    Davis & Sanford Vista Explorer VTB reviews

    Vista Explorer VTB Aluminum Tripod with BHQ8 Ball Head is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stands up to use I have bought several inexpensive tripods over the last 5 years in bulk for my high school photo classes. Some were broken straight out of the box and others broke not long after - this one takes a beating and is still standing. It is by no means perfect but for the price and durability it is perfect for my student needs!� I like its adjustable quick release legs, ball head, the case it comes with, and the fact that it includes the alan wrench as I have to use them frequently to tighten the loose joints.� I have ordered 10 and back to order more!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thumbscrews stripped immediately, falls apart. I bought two of these for use with a slider. One of the thumbscrews for the center column immediately stripped so bad it just slides in and out. The handle on the thumbscrew for the baseplate also popped off when tightening. Terrible quality. Disappointed because I have another very sturdy Davis & Sanford Tripod.
