The Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ 263AT Aluminum Tripod supports up to 15.4 lb, measures 24.6" when folded, and can be positioned to a maximum height of 64" with its push-and-pull, rapid center column fully raised. Its 3-section legs each feature an independent 20°, 40°, 60°, or 80° spread as well as 35° twist locks for rapid adjustments. Non-slip, all-weather TPU grips on two of the legs provide a secure, comfortable grip while moving the tripod, and rubber feet enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces. The center column has a hook for attaching a counterweight for even greater stability.

Tripod heads, cameras, lenses, or sport optics that are compatible with 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 male threads connect to the top of the tripod's stable, hexagonal, cross arm-type center column that can be positioned horizontally like a small boom in in 15° increments. This allows for a very low minimum working of 15.4" that's ideal for macro work. A tripod bag with shoulder strap is included for storage and transport.

MACC (Multi-Angle Center Column) System
The innovative Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC) System allows users to move the central column from zero to 180-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions making macro-photography and special wide-angle shots easy.
Leg Angle Selector
Achieve ideal positioning and balance of the tripod to match any working terrain, by using the 3-angle leg setting options of 20°, 40°, 60°, or 80°.
Rugged Build and Stability Features
The patented premium magnesium die-cast canopy and head, hexagon-shaped central column for extra stability, and non-slip, spiked rubber feet for changing terrains.

How well does this tripod handle environmental conditions such as salt water or dust? Will it stand being in water?
