More Information

The 26mm diameter aluminium alloy legs have settings for 20°, 45° and 80° degrees, with easy-release buttons for quick set-up, and a free low angle adaptor included. This solid (1.9kg/4.2lbs) tripod collapses to 61cm/24” and can be extended up to 1600cm/63”, while supporting up to 5kg/11lbs.

The 2-way pan head is made of lightweight aluminium alloy. It can be rotated 360°, and tilted -60° backwards or 90° forwards, with complete control using just one hand. These two movements function simultaneously, and both the rotation and tilt can be set in place using the pan bar's integrated twist lock.

The kit includes an extra long Arca Swiss quick shoe that offers a double security feature and helps to prevent your camera or other equipment from accidentally falling when it is being adjusted.

A sturdy magnesium die-cast canopy, quick-flip leg locks, non-slip spiked or rubber feet, a removable hook for hanging camera accessories or a stabilising weight, 2 Allen wrenches, 3/8'' screw adaptor and carrying bag make this a fantastic kit.

*The Vanguard BA-185 binocular adaptor can be purchased separately.
