Vanguard Alta+ 225CT User Reviews
Great Compact Tripod
“The unit is incredibly light – yet feels very sturdy. This is the wonder of carbon fiber. You will know this feeling if you have ever picked up a carbon-fiber bike (as I have at the local Trek store – though it did not come home with me as it was a bit out of my price range!) The tripod weighs no where near what it “should”. It also is very small and fits on my photo backpack easily.” – By Robert Stone
light and convienent
“I do find the extending and retracing the legs via the locking mechanism is a little cludgey, but other than that, this is a good value for the money. Now instead of taking a monopod to places like the zoo, I take this, as it is actually lighter.” – By Patrick Holt
“Attaching a head is easy, and it worked with both my Vanguard GH-100 and Manfrotto 322RC2 head (with the little adapter to shrink the screw head), though both heads are pretty heavy so I may have to find something else to couple with this lightweight tripod.” – By I. R. Smart.
Light and Easy
“This is the lightest tripod I own. The only fault I can find with it is not the fault of the tripod. I’m 6 foot tall and have a bad back. Even with this tripod fully extended I need to bend down in a most uncomfortable way.” – By S. Peterson
Light, compact, configurable
“it is much cheaper but still does a great job.. the Ambico’s only configuration is perfect for 90% of the shots I would take with a tripod, and so it gets into that configuration faster than the Vanguard.” – By ut158
Very nice travel tripod
“I have a larger Vanguard tripod and I love it, but it’s very heavy and hard to travel with (even though it’s very professional). This little version is great! Highly portable, lots of options for adjustment, and just as good as his big brother!” – By Gina B
