Vanguard at The Photography Show 2021

September 14, 2021 , Vanguard World

Vanguard is proud to confirm that we will be attending the Photography Show at Birmingham NEC 18th-21st September where we're looking forward to meeting many of our regulars, and a whole load of new photographers. Our stand will be at the main entrance on C500 between Nikon and Sony, so you can't miss us.

VEO Adaptor

We'll be launching our new VEO Adaptor Backpacks to try out at the show, the first time they'll be seen anywhere in the world!  As well as being compact and capable camera backpacks, they introduce a new USB interface port that allows you to keep your device powered on the go, and your power bank(s) safe inside the bag.  Whether it's for navigating on your smartphone, or keeping your camera going that little bit longer, this option can make all the difference on your trip.

VEO 3T Vlogging Tripods

With an ever-growing choice of social media channels, the demand for kit that can help your content stand out from the crowd is growing, whether you’re using a professional level camera, or a smartphone. Vanguard recognises that our customers are often photographers first, but still want to create content for their YouTube or TikTok channel, without having to purchase a brand-new set of kit.  They want a versatile solution that delivers both. To "support" this, Vanguard introduces a new series - VEO 3T Travel Tripods.

For photographers, these travel tripods deliver a solid, stable platform that hold up to 12kg, yet fold down to as little as 41cm and include a host of features that customers have come to expect from Vanguard, such as Arca compatible heads, a low angle adaptor, hook at the base of the central column for attaching additional weight, spiked feet and a tripod bag.

For vloggers, these travel tripods include an Arca compatible ball head that comes with a removable pan-handle, allowing greater control while filming. They also introduce a new Arca compatible quick release plate that can hold a camera or smartphone up to 85mm wide, and a Bluetooth remote control for IOS or Android. In addition it can hold up to three tripod support arms for additional accessories, such as a microphone, a display or a lighting unit, removing the need to take additional supports into the field.

VEO 3T Specification

    All models include:

    • Removable pan-handle
    • Arca compatible QS-72T quick release plate for camera/smartphone
    • Cold shoe mount
    • Ability to hold up to 3 tripod support arms (one on quick release plate, and two on central column spider)
    • 3-easy set leg angles (20°, 50° and 80°)
    • Leg that converts to a monopod
    • Low angle adaptor
    • Rubber or spiked feet
    • Tripod bag

    VEO 3+ and VEO 3T+

    Despite our successful launch, we're conscious that many photographers haven't met our award winning VEO 3+ full sized tripods, or the travel sized VEO 3T+ yet, so we'll have them at the show for people to try for themselves.  We believe this is the most versatile tripod on the market, come and find out why, and #makeupyourownmind.

    In the meantime, you can see Vanguard Pro Mike Moats take on both series:

    VEO 3+ full sized ultra versatile tripod:

    • Central column that converts to multi-mount using VEO+ MA1 provided 
    • Leg that converts to a monopod
    • 3 easy set leg locks (23°, 50° & 80°)
    • Easy set and easy clean leg locks
    • 3/8” thread hole on side of canopy for support arm
    • Removable and retractable hook on a spring for adding extra weight
    • Arca compatible heads (not including tripod only options) 
    • Rubber or spiked feet
    • Luxury tripod bag

    The show's not all about the new products. It's a great opportunity to have a play with the different products and get personalised advice on the right products for you. You can get a feel for the products we'll have available by visiting our Exhibitor's Profile.

    On the stand, we will have the products out on display, but to keep everyone safe, we would ask anyone looking to touch a product to ensure they use the hand sanitiser provided and wear a mask. 

    We'll also have experienced members of the team who can help direct you to the right product for your needs.  We don't believe in hard selling, or selling you the wrong product. If we can't help, we'll try to direct you to a brand who can, and pass any insights back to our design team.

    If you do choose a Vanguard product, there will be exclusive discounts available at the show to save you that little bit more and make your money stretch that little bit further.

    We're also delighted to confirm that we will be joined by several of our Vanguard Ambassadors over the weekend, including:

    Our Ambassadors are all volunteers with a social media following ranging from a few hundred, to over a million. Social media following is much less important to us than a true passion for photography, quality of photography and being genuine users of Vanguard products as a significant, but not complete, portion of their kit. We don't pay our Ambassadors as we believe that distorts the relationship, and their support is completely voluntary, so thank you to each for taking the time to join us on the stand! So why not pop over and say hello.

    Please note, Laurence and Chris will be giving talks during the show.  You can see more information here:


    Unfortunately Vanguard is not immune to the global supply chain challenges that are affecting almost every brand.  Whether it's Covid's impact, the lack of global shipping capacity or the shortage of lorry drivers, there are products that may be ideal for you, but we don't have in stock. If this affects you, please complete the form below and we'll update you as soon as we have any news on that product, and we'll make sure we can match the show deal.

    See you at the Photography Show 2021!
