The most efficient tripod I've ever used

By Andrea

from Nashville, TN, United States

Comments about Vanguard ALTA PRO 263AB 100 Tripod and Ball Head:

I have been an amateur landscape photographer for many years and I always thought a tripod should not be worth more than $100 - about the amount I spent on my last one before this one. I received this Vanguard professional tripod free for reviewing from Amazon and I must say - this is an entire different class than what I am used to. The ball makes all the difference. Of course, one has to get familiar with some of the tightening knobs, but in the end, it is by far the best tripod I've ever seen. Just last weekend I went to some waterfalls in Tennessee and even when the surface was very uneven, it did not make a difference with this tripod! All I had to adjust was the position of the ball head. It is like working with 3D controls rather than 2D at one time with my old tripod. I was able to adjust angles and position much faster than otherwise. The legs are sturdy - I placed this tripod in running water for some of the half-second RAW shots of the falling water, and the results are fabulous. I did not think this tripod is heavy - at least compared to some others I used - and it was easy to carry it around in its bag.
