Vanguard 265CB Overview
The gray-finished Vanguard VEO 2 265 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head combines the VEO 2 265C carbon fiber legs with the BH-50 ball head. Ideal for travel, wildlife, and nature as well as studio work, the tripod weighs just 2.9 lb thanks to carbon fiber construction, and has an extended load capacity of 17.6 lb for heavy cameras or long lenses. It can rise to 59", and folds down to a compact 16.4".
The tripod's 5-section legs feature advanced twist locks that require only 1/4 turn and individual spread in 20°, 45°, and 80° positions for easy setup on uneven terrain or spreading out as low as 7.25" for macro photography. A loop for a counterweight is provided for extra stability. The BH-50 has 3 independent dedicated knobs for locking, panning, and friction control. It includes an Arca-type quick release and a compatible camera plate.
