"Overall, if you're a professional photographer or just someone who likes a lot of versatility in their kit then this is certainly going to fit the bill at a good price point. The extra leg angle compared with most tripods and the ability to tilt the centre column mean that the tripod can be set up for all sorts of applications including Astro and macro photography"
Overall e-PHOTOzine Verdict
The Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ 263CGHT is a very versatile tripod that will allow you to capture almost any angle possible. The built in shutter button and ability to change the angle of the central column are major draws. If your work requires the tripod to be rock solid then it might not be the one for you, but weighing this up against the many other positive points about this tripod make it a great choice, especially for event photography where the right angle can be everything.
