The ALTA PRO 2V 263AV Aluminum Tripod with ALTA PH-123V Head from Vanguard is a compact kit suitable for virtually all types of applications. Its light weight makes it ideal for travel, yet the 13 lb payload also allows it to be used in more professional applications. Moreover, the tripod legs can be opened very wide, allowing a minimum height of just 6", just slightly off the ground, letting you shoot stable low-angle shots as well as time-lapse capture. The maximum height is 51".
The compact form and light weight of the kit allows you to comfortably carry it around by hand or in a bag, whether from one shooting location to another, up and down a hike, between your vacation activities, and pretty much anywhere else. The fluid head features a 58mm flat base with a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole (and a 1/4"-20 bushing is supplied), so you can conveniently attach the head to various other supports, including sliders. The head offers 360° pan and 60 to 90° tilt movement and features an adjustable spring-loaded counterbalance system which is engaged via a switch. A pan bar is included that can be attached to the left or right side.
