For the outdoor photographer

The Vanguard Alta+ tripod is constructed with durable materials to hold up your camera with strength. The sleek and modern design features a 3-way pan head that gives generous height and flexibility to help you get those perfect shots. The removable centre column hook supports extra weight and its rubber feet will grip the ground as you’re busily shooting away.

Find the perfect angle

The 3-way fluid head pans to find your precise angle, whether you’re capturing scenic landscapes or up-close portraits. With three bubble levels on the head, you’ll be able to get the exact angle you’re looking for. With side-to-side tilt of minus-60-degrees to 90-degrees and minus-30-degrees to 90-degrees of back-to-front tilt, you’ll be able to expand your horizons in all directions to get those perfect shots. With a laser engraved scale and head that features 360-degree panning, your panoramic shots will be on point.

Get in low positions

Adjust the legs of the Vanguard Alta+ with flexibility to get into low angles. The legs are able to adjust to 25-, 50- and 80-degree angles and securely lock in place with a double locking system. They adjust individually, so you can get into some awkward positions with ease. With a reversible center column that can twist around, you’ll be able to take great macro photography while reaching really low angles.

Reach new heights

The Alta+ legs stretch to a height of 162cm, giving your shots the elevation they need to get just the right angle. The foam grip legs are weatherproof, taking on all weather conditions, so you can shoot out in the elements regardless of rain. With spikes that emerge from its rubber feet, the tripod won’t move anywhere as you’re shooting away, even on rocky ground. And if you ever need to take the legs off to make any adjustments, the leg hinges disengage easily.

Load it all on

Supporting a weight of up to five kilograms, this tripod can take on a serious deal of gear. With a secondary safety lock that prevents your equipment from accidentally falling off, your kit will be secure as you’re shooting. The removable accessory hook enables you to weigh down the tripod for extra weight under windy conditions, or use it to hang your accessories while you’re working.

Lightweight yet solid

Ideal for outdoor photographers and travellers, the Vanguard Alta+ 263AP weighs just two kilograms for easy transport. Built with a magnesium canopy, this tripod is lightweight but strong and durable to remain sturdy, in a sleek and modern design.

Is it OK to carry my tripod with the camera mounted?

We recommend not carrying your tripod while the camera is mounted as it puts your camera at risk of damage.

How can I tighten a loose leg?

If one legs starts to feel looser than the others, use the allen/hex key to tighten it up.

How can I weigh down the tripod when it’s heavy?

One way that might be helpful is to utilise the included carry bag as a weight-bag by putting a full water bottle inside and hanging the bag off the centre tube hook for added stability.

Which filters do you recommend for landscape photography?

As most photographers use tripods for landscape and scenery photography, it would be wise to invest in a filter system such as the LEE Filters range in order to guarantee you get the best possible colours and exposure.

What do I need a shutter remote for?

Shutter remotes can range from infrared remotes that cost no more than $50, to advanced intervalometers allowing for long exposure photography. Either way, the idea is to avoid touching your camera as it begins its exposure process to ensure there's no camera shake which may results in blur in your images. 

How can I achieve good time lapse photography?

The Syrp Genie is built for time-lapse photography. Simply attach the Syrp Genie to the top of the tripod and allow the Genie to rotate as it captures multiple exposures. The Genie also produces a great effect for perfectly smooth rotation panning shots for your videography.
