The Vanguard VEO 3 263AB is a full-sized aluminium tripod that is designed for photographers who value stability over versatility, with a traditional central column. This is perfect for landscape photographers, or wildlife photographers using a long lens to get closer to the action.

The 3-section, 26mm diameter legs incorporate silent twist leg locks with a new design that can hold over 20kg when locked. They are also designed to be easy to clean, allowing you to maximise the life of your tripod. Perfect for even the tallest photographer, this tripod folds to 74cm and extends to 179cm, or 146cm with the central column down. For added stability, there is a retractable hook to attach additional weight, and the rubber feet come off to allow the spiked feet provided to be attached.

For low-angle or macro shots, the tripod comes with three easy-set leg angles (20°, 50° and 80°) and a low-angle adaptor. Alternatively, simply reverse the central column and you’re ready to go.

On the side of the central canopy spider are two 3/8″ threads for tripod support arms, allowing you to attach the accessories of your choice. These threads include bayonet slots on either side that ensure maximum stability on tripod support arms with that feature, such as the VEO TSA DLX which has a reversible plate for bayonet/non-bayonet fittings. If you want to be able to attach additional accessories to the central column or set up the tripod for overhead shots, you could consider the VEO MT-12 Multi-Mount.

If you don’t need the full tripod, then simply remove a leg, attach it to the central column and you have a monopod that extends to 185cm.

On top of the tripod is a VEO BH-160S Dual Axis ball head with a 15kg load capacity. This allows you to make micro-adjustments using the most appropriate axis, without needing to loosen the main ball joint and risk losing the overall setup. Alternatively, you can get the perfect level and shoot panoramas, at whatever angle your tripod is set up at.
