Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ 263AP Tripod

Enter the Alta Pro 2+. This is the updated version of the fantastic Vanguard Alta Pro (without the 2+). Vanguard won the TiPA 2017 award for best tripod among others. The BEST improvement in my mind is the one movement centre column deployment where as the original was a little bit fiddly. The new Alta Pro 2+ uses twist action rather than clips on the legs. Take a look at the following video.

Note that images of this tripod without the head will show it as a 263AT. Don't panic, that is just the naming used by Vanguard.

The ALTA PRO 2+ 263AP is the new industry standard for an ultimate performance tripod, guaranteed to flawlessly support not only your camera, but also your creative workflow.

The Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ 263AP is tripod kit with a lightweight, 26mm, 3 section aluminum tripod + Alta PH-32 3-way fluid panhead with dual telescopic handles and max pay load of up to 5 kg/11 lbs. Featuring the unique MACC (Multi-Angle Center Column) it can be positioned at almost any angle from negative to positive thus offering ultimate freedom of creativity.

Key Product Highlights include:

MACC (Multi-Angle Center Column System): with a unique quick action center column, you will enjoy quick, simple and intuitive “twist and lock” positioning at any angle of 15° steps. And range rotation of -90° to +90° that supports unlimited creativity, while significantly improving results in any field of photography, landscape to macro!

Central Column & Lock Mechanism: our mechanism offers one handed, effortless smooth operation and rapid action set-up, while our unique hexagonal central column ensures enhanced rigidity and stability.

Leg Angle selector: achieve perfect positioning and balance of the tripod to match any working terrain, by using the strong and steady 4 angles leg setting options of 20°, 40°, 60° or 80°)

Advanced Twist-Lock: ultra-fast 35° turn to “lock” or “unlock” ensures instant leg extension/contraction. This exceptional new system is engineered to support an unmatched loading capacity in comparison to any tripod other tripod in this segment.

ALTA Link: the tripod canopy is fitted with a 3/8 threaded connector, which will allow easy connection any additional accessories, such as lighting equipment and articulated or flexible arms, thus linking our users to incredible new creative possibilities.

Superb Build Quality and Multi Featured: manufactured with 1st rate material this solid performance tripod is sturdy, lightweight. Its many features include: fitted Bubble level and dedicated suspension loop to ensure perfect position and additional stability by hanging counterweight or bags; Non-slip, all-weather TPU grips on 2 legs; angled rubber feet to ensure perfect grip on any terrain (rubber feet welcome ALTA SF spiked feet sold separately). Included bonus Tripod bag designed to fit any standard head combo.

ALTA PH-32: offers fantastic two handle ergonomics and precision thanks to the independent control of directions: one handle offers 360° panning and -30° to +90° back-to-front tilt, while the other maintains a side-to-side tilt range of -60° to +90°, which is ideal for shooting portraits, or vertical landscapes. The fluid mechanism guarantees smooth panning which is key for Video or Observation use. The handle lengths can be extended or collapsed to match your changing needs and preferences.
