Vanguard Alta+ 204AP User Reviews
Perfect quality and extremely useful
“Vanguard Alta+ 204AP has perfect material and workmanship and it has a lot of useful functions which you cannot find in many other tripods. Like you can adjust tripod legs even wider, almost horizontal so that the camera is very low. You can attach camera to the bottom of tripod and take close-up macro shots on floor on this position. It gives a great pleasure to use it when shooting photos or using binoculars. Very stable and durable. I highly recommend this product. I bought two from Adorama Camera and they shipped very fast.” – By E. Ozza
Steady as she goes
“I looked around and finally happened upon this Vanguard and bought it, and am I ever glad I did. 4 section legs, anchoring pins in the ends of the legs if needed, a single quick release if raising the neck is necessary, and the head is quickly, and easily adjusted. an added feature is a one button quick release if shooting ground level macro, as the legs will extend outward to allow the camera to remain mounted at ground level. I couldn’t be happier with my selection.” – By G. Powell
Superb, EXCELLENT VALUE, blows away competition for price to value ratio
“First, it has a FLUID HEAD. The box itself fails to mention that. The head moves so fluidly and although it says photo tripod on the box, I use it for video with my Canon HD camera. WOW, this is an amazing tripod. Second, it has two axes (handlebars?) of controls, one for each hand. This allows for more precise motion. Third, it has a built in level. How useful! Fourth, it is lightweight, comes with a FREE tripod bag inside the box! Fifth, it is quite small so you can stow it away. Sixth, it is the BEST price to value ratio you will ever find on a tripod.” – By scir91onYouTube
