Pretty Much Does It All
“I use this tripod with my 5D Mk2 and a Sigma 50-500mm lens. Mostly for night shots.
I love the simple half twist of the tightening adjustment on the leg sections that solidly lock each extension in plane, the nice detent-pin safety feature to keep the center column from being pulled out inadvertently and the positive locking positions for the leg spread at 80, 50 and 25 degrees. Finish on the carbon fiber leg surfaces is elegant.” – By Biap
Great Tripod and great price
“I have been shopping for my first good tripod for several weeks. Vanguard seems to make a very good product for less than the big names. I wanted a carbon model and I was looking at the Alta Pro 384ct. It is about $360 and I just couldn’t spend that right now. Then I found the 254ct. It is only a few inches shorter and it’s max load is a few pounds less than the 284 but, it’s about $150 less. This left enough money for a good ball head, again a Vanguard model. I’m very happy with the build quality and appearance.” – By Max and Dees Dad
Light and Versatile
“After years of trekking around with my 7LB Manfrotto ( that’s without a head ) I needed something sturdy, light and the Vanguard Alta Pro 254CT was spot on. So was the price. At first I was nervous about the legs as they just seemed ‘delicate’ but after some field work they proved solid as the aluminum and steel of the Manfrotto – and less than half the weight.” – By Richard W. Nicholson
