Vanguard Alta Pro 2 263AB100 Tripod with BH-1... Reviews
Beware - No 180 tilt feature!
So I thought this was one heck of a deal on a somewhat hybrid version of the alta 2 and alta2+. It seemed to have all the updated features of the 2+, including the BH (vs SBH) ball head, twist lock, 4 position legs, etc, but I missed that the center shaft does not tilt like the earlier Pro2 or newer Pro2+. My bad because it was not mentioned in the description and the pics are accurate. I'd return it but feel it is a solid buy for what it is.
Thanks for the great service. I love the tripod. It's everything I expected... and more. The representative was great, easy with which to deal, explained everything clearly, got my package in the mail the following morning and I received it, as promised, very quickly.
Ball Head Broken in 2 Months
I really love this Tripod but Ball head broken in 2 Months. B&H is it possible to send me replacement as its just under 3 Months purchase?
It's been a while since I've used a full size tripod, favoring the smaller and lighter travel ones. However studio work is forcing me to invest in something else. This Vanguard Alta Pro was discounted when I bought it and the value is incredible. This thing is well built, solid and has several useful and convenient features! I love being able to remove the column with a push of a button and the built-in 3/8 thread on the side of the platform that holds the head. The head itself is also solid as a rock. I look forward to the many years of use I'll get out of these legs.
My Favorite Tripod
I've had this about six months and I find I use it all the time. Whenever I need a sturdy tripod especially to either hold something heavy steady, for a remote controlled pan/tilt head or just because I need to fit it into some odd placement, this is the solution I'm using. Love it so much, I'm ordering another one today.
Alta Pro 2 263AB100 Tripod
My first tripod. Easy to set up and use. A little bulkier and heavier than I imagined but very sturdy. I imagine I will purchase another for travel purposes. Otherwise I am very satisfied with my purchase.
This thing is strong. I feel extremely safe leaving my camera here. Its so well made. I love vanguard!
Garbage. Center column wobbles Top plate wobbles. Sent back.
My version may have been a return but nonetheless, it was not usable. Very disappointed.
