New Tripod Legs and Heads from Vanguard

Set up your camera and enjoy the benefits of stability and creative flexibility with Vanguard’s new Alta Pro 2+ tripods and tripod kits. Each option can comfortably support a DSLR or mirrorless camera up to heights that are ideal for most subjects, from portraits to landscapes.
