VANGUARD's comprehensive tripod collection is a photographer's candy shop, packed with the essentials that help more efficiently capture the moment. These tripods, with unmatched versatility, flexibility and reliability, are the result of 25 years of expertise. Take Alta Pro Series, for example. Available in lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum alloy models, they make traditional tripods look archaic. Its Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC) System enables users to move the central column as needed from zero to 360-degree angles. It's helped photographers across the globe expand their creative possibilities by reaching angles never before possible. That's why it earned a prestigious "Best Accessory 2009" TIPA award, as voted on by the Technical Image Press Association, which includes editors from the world's top photo magazines.
