Vanguard ALTA PH-32 Overview

  • 1Description

The aluminum ALTA PH-32 3-Way Pan Head from Vanguard is a 1.5 lb Arca-type compatible support that has a load capacity of 11 lb. The head has two separate handle locks, one for the vertical tilt and the other handle locks the lateral tilt and panning simultaneously. The front tilting range is -60° to +90°, the lateral range is -30° to +90°, and the head can rotate a full 360°. In addition, the 5.2" tall support has two bubble levels, and includes a quick plate with a safety pin, which prevents the plate from sliding or falling out if the clamp was partially opened by accident.

    Vanguard ALTA PH-32 Reviews

    ALTA PH-32 3-Way Pan Head (Aluminum) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A solid head, but weird lock mechanism Strengths: - A solid head. - The control levers have a clever mechanism in them that allows them to be in either a short (compact) position or a longer position. Weakness: - The description on the B&H website says it has an independent pan lock, but this is not really true. The lock mechanism for the pan function is weird in my opinion. It has two positions. In one position, twisting the front handle simultaneously locks both the pan and the front-back tilt. In the other position, the front handle only locks the front-back tilt; there is then no lock for the pan function. In my opinion, a pan-tilt head should ideally have 3 separate locks – one for pan, one for front-back tilt, and one for left-right tilt.
