  • 1Description

This ESPOD CX 204AP Aluminum-Alloy Tripod Kit from Vanguard supports up to 7.7 lb, measures 20.7" when folded, and includes a PH-23 Pan-and-Tilt Head with QS-29 Quick Release Plate. Each of its 4-section legs features an independent spread as well as flip locks for fast deployment. Together, the three legs can be can be positioned for a minimum height of 50.0" to a maximum height of 61.0" with the center column fully raised.

Cameras, lenses, or sport optics that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the QS-29 Quick Release Plate, which is secured to the tripod's pan-and-tilt head using a quick release cam lock. Using its pan bar, the head can be rotated 360°, and tilted backwards or forwards. Additionally, the cam lock assembly can be rotated 360° independently of the head. To change from a landscape to portrait orientation, the cam lock assembly's friction lock can be loosened while the attached camera, lens, or sport optic is physically held in place so that it continues to face the subject. The head itself can then be rotated 90° toward the left, and tilted 90° forward before closing the cam lock assembly's friction lock.

    Vanguard 204AP reviews

    ESPOD CX 204AP Aluminum-Alloy Tripod Kit with PH-23 Pan-and-Tilt Head is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod for a Good Price I am new to photography and getting into all the basic equipment has been a research trial and a strain on the budget. Thanks to B&H I've found a company that has quality products, fast service and excellent online chat representatives, I have found the ESpod CX 204AP to be a very good tripod for the price. When I have seen the prices on the higher end tripods I can only say they must be fantastic because this tripod does all I need, at least for the present. The legs extend easily and the clips work fast and securely. The movement of the head seems smooth and overall it seems to be of good quality. It is a little bigger and heavier than I had anticipated but it is still very handy to use. It would be nice if this tripod came with a carry bag. To take on a walking photo shoot you would need to get one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tripod for the price Is small and compact, lightweight, easy to carry attached to a backpack. The head could be a little more tough and strong but is ok for a $ photo tripod. Not good for video, unless you plan to make fixed shots. It would be nice to include a carry bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel tripod Bought this as a small travel tripod for a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. It's solid and light weight (at least I feel it's light in comparison to my other tripods). The pan and tilt is smooth and it latches snug to my travel back pack.
