The Vanguard Alta CA 233AO Aluminum Tripod with PH-30 Pan/Tilt Head is ideal for the avid outdoor enthusiast who needs a compact and lightweight tripod that doesn't sacrifice the features necessary for advanced usage. Four-step leg angles offer versatility, and the angled rubber feet provide improved stability especially in uneven terrain. An easy-to-use leg lock button and quick-flip leg locks allow easy tripod setup and breakdown to keep you extremely mobile. With a loading capacity of 13 pounds, the PH-30 3-way pan head is smooth and precise, and fitted with a removable quick release plate for rapid gear mounting and changing. The Alta CA 233AO tripod also includes a vibration and anti-shock control ring on the center column, and a removable hook for hanging a backpack or any other accessory to keep it off the ground or for additional weight to aid stability and reduce vibrations. For low-angle photography, the center column can be detached for more clearance. Last but not least, the tripod comes with a carrying bag.
