When it comes to tripods, prices and quality can be all over the board. Each brand and product line is typically made for a specific purpose. I don't know about you, but with all of the travel involved in my business, the last thing I want is to be lugged down with more and more gear. Our camera bags are heavy enough. So, when I add something new to my bag, weight is always a key factor.
With weight, comes the perception of quality. Well, Vanguard hit a home run with this portable tripod. The VEO 235AB provides strong leg locks and a great load capacity -- things we should all be conscious of when it comes to our expensive cameras and lenses. You spend thousands of dollars on your camera equipment, make sure you get a set of sticks that can support the fragile payload.
