Backed by popular demand, we merged our award-winning Alta Pro tripod with our popular PH photo pan heads. Alta Pro has unmatched versatility and stability and enables more angle possibilities than ever. Its innovative Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC) System allows users to move the central column from 0 to 180-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions, making macro-photography and special-angle shots a breeze. The Instant Swivel Stop-n-Lock (ISSL) System quickly and securely repositions the central column in one simple movement while maintaining the tripods stability. PH-32 is a lightweight, easy-to-operate three-way pan head with precise pan and tilt functions.

ALTA PRO 263AP is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The lightest heavy duty semi-pro tripod! I'm a Sony A7R2 landscape photographer and I know the importance of having a STURDY tripod to shoot razor sharp images. I have travelled everywhere with this tripod and love it. People always compliment how surprisingly light it is for a full size tripod and how easy it is to use. It's not a "pro" tripod but easily performs like a pro tripod for a fraction of the cost. The build quality is great and out performs many of the similar Vanguard tripods as this one I would say is UNIQUE! It's a full size tripod that can extend taller than me (5'8"). The snap buckles on the legs make for a quick setup and teardown without worrying about breaking them. It is very thick sturdy legged tripod and the hook at the bottom allows you to hang your bag off of it providing a rock steady platform. This tripod is as light as they come without buying expensive carbon fiber, as it's made of a light alloy. Simple and intuitive controls on the panning head makes it easy to adjust without looking at the controls. The head is smooth and fluid making panorama shots a snap with the built in bubble levels. I tested many tripods and was disappointed for the longest time until I came across this one. By far the best value on the market, as there is nothing with this set of specs.
