Vanguard 255CT overview

  • 1Description

The Vanguard Alta+ 255CT 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is an extremely compact, lightweight camera support that offers stability, durability, and ease of use for photography in a variety of different conditions. The carbon fiber tripod reaches a maximum height of 49.2", weighs only 2.56 lb, and supports loads up to 8.8 lb.

With a push of the easy-release buttons, the carbon fiber legs can be set independently at three different angles – 25, 50, and 80° – to accommodate both low-angle shooting and shooting from uneven terrain. Non-slip rubber feet hide retractable spikes, which makes the tripod suitable for various types of terrain.

At only 15.6" long when it's folded, the Alta+ 255CT tripod was designed for travel – it comes with a carry strap and it's compact enough to fit easily into a backpack or an airplane carry-on bag.

The legs feature quarter-twist locks and non-rotating sections to facilitate extremely fast setup of the tripod – twist all four of a leg's locks at once with a single motion, and watch all leg stages descend immediately.

All-weather foam grip legs mitigate the effects of extreme heat and cold on the legs and make them easier to grip
Removable counter-weight hook for hanging accessories and adding weight for extra stability in windy conditions
Shock absorber underneath center post collar, to prevent damage to camera if the center post is retracted quickly
Magnesium die-cast chassis and center post collar
