The Vanguard Abeo Plus 283CB Tripod is one of Vanguard's paramount camera supports--a versatile diamond-woven carbon fiber tripod combined with a magnesium SBH-100 professional ballhead. The unique Quick Height Adjustment center column means you can change the height of the tripod quickly and with a minimum of effort. Just flip the lever lock open, raise or lower the central column to the desired height, and flip the lock closed. Tension Adjustable Leg Locks provide secure and rapid locking of the legs. Over time, normal wear and tear can start to take a toll on ordinary flip locks, but with Abeo Plus, you can just tighten the adjustable leg locks to the desired tension for peak performance. Each leg can also be adjusted independently to a 25-, 50-, or 80-degree angle.
The rubber feet on the legs have an angled design that gives you the perfect grip, whether in the studio or on uneven natural terrain. Built-in interchangeable spikes give you secure support on soft earth or ice, and the included set of snow/sand shoes will keep your tripod on a solid footing no matter what surface it's on.
The included BBH-100 ballhead has a valuable Rapid Level System that allows you to level the camera to the base rapidly. It also features a universal 38mm quick-release plate, and an anti-scratch coating on the ball for smooth movement. A low-angle adapter makes getting those unique low shots easier than ever. Thick foam on the upper part of each leg makes the tripod easy and comfortable to handle even in cold, hot, or wet weather.
