Vanguard 284CT Overview
The ABEO Pro 284CT Carbon Fiber Tripod from Vanguard is a set of tripod legs that have a load capacity of 17.6 lb, and weigh 5.1 lb. They can extend to 63" and fold down to 24.4" for transport.
The tripod features a multi-angle center column system that allows you to move the central column from 0 to 180-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions. This makes macro photography and unique angle shots a breeze. Its Instant Swivel Stop-n-Lock (ISSL) System securely re-positions the center column in one simple movement, while maintaining the tripod's stability. When the center column is set in an angled position, a quick-adjustment lever lock makes pivoting the center column simple: flip the lock open, rotate the column to the desired position, and flip the lock closed. A ballast hook on the bottom of the center column allows you to hang a weight, adding stability to the tripod. A bubble level helps ensure your camera is even with the horizon.
The tripod's legs feature flip locks and they individually adjust to 25°, 50°, and 80° angles with use of ergonomic release buttons for easy setup on uneven terrain or spreading out flat for low-angle photography. Three types of included feet provide an ideal solution for most surfaces. They include angled rubber feet, spiked feet, and a set of snow/sand shoes.
