Hello Photographers, Tom here from Cameras Direct with another Vanguard Tripod Review.
Today, a quick look at the Vanguard Alta Pro 263AT tripod legs.

Vanguard is a really great brand of tripods that have sort of taken the world by storm since they’ve come into the market place a few years ago. This is mainly because they produce very very good quality tripods for a lot less than you would expect. This makes them ideal for the serious amateur photographer or the amateur photographer who wants a good quality tripod with lots of features.

Its nice and sturdy, but doesn’t want to pay $400 $500 plus for the bigger brands (such as Manfrotto).

So the Vanguard 263AT is a three section tripod here with clips to move your legs in and out.

You have a center pole which allows you to move the pole up to a maximum height as you can see here. The legs are also adjustable. You pull this little clip in here and in the leg can come out to three different positions.

So can have it virtually go flat on the ground, very good feature.

But the big feature of this tripod is that the center column allows you, and you just push this button in here to clear down here, pull up and then pull that out and as you can see you can then put the column in any position you like. Now that’s very handy if you have to get into weird positions for macro photography or videographers or so on and being able to lay the legs down flat as well means you can virtually get on the ground with this tripod.

You then just lock it off into the position you like and you can spin it around still as such or of course lock the whole section in
so that’s nice and stable.

You place your head on the top here when you are putting a particular head on it, could be a ball head could be a two-way pan head or fluid head whatever head you like.

A pistol grip head maybe. But look, great set of legs (thank you) and they are fantastic for the serious amateur photographer who wants quality without paying massive amounts of money.

So folks the Vanguard Alta Pro 263AT Tripod Legs, may just be the tripod legs that you’ve been looking to buy.
