The VEO 3+ Series stands out due to its incredible versatility, delivering for any style of photography, and these 26mm legs deliver outstanding stability with a 15kg load capacity, perfect for even the most professional kit.

All VEO 3+ tripods come with a market leading Multi-Angle Central Column that can be moved almost 360° in any direction with ease. Combined with the three easy set leg angles, it makes the VEO 3+ perfect for any style of photography - moving from macro shots with your lens at ground level, to upright landscape shots in seconds.

The multi-angle central column also includes a scale at the base of the central column and on the central column itself that allows you to repeat a series of shots over time with ease.

You can also use the multi-angle central column as a Multi-Mount using the VEO+ MA1 Adaptor (included). The VEO+ MA1 simply slides onto the central column to create another attachment point, allowing you to attach additional equipment to the tripod to enhance any shot, be it a laptop, display, lighting, microphone and more.

On the central column canopy there is also a 3/8" thread hole with 1/4” adaptor with non-slip bayonet fittings for attaching a VEO TSA DLX Tripod Support Arm (not included), or any other magic arm, that allows you to add even more accessories, helping to turn your tripod into a studio.

Despite this flexibility, when locked off, the multi-angle central column provides an incredibly stable platform at any angle, and it features a retractable and removable hook at the base of the central column for attaching additional weight for additional stability.

The VEO 3+ 263AB is a complete tripod kit that has 26mm diameter, 3-section aluminium legs that offer an incredibly stable base that extends to 1725mm (or 1470mm with the central column down for maximum stability) and will hold up to 15kg.

This tripod also features a leg that can be unscrewed to convert into a monopod.  Simply remove the leg and the central column, and screw the two together and you have a monopod that extends to 1825mm. 

The easy set twist locks allow you to deploy your tripod in seconds, and to lock the legs solid.  They are also incredibly easy to clean, allowing you to use the tripod in more extreme conditions to capture that perfect shot, with the knowledge that you can clean the legs thoroughly when you return home, maximizing the life of the tripod.

For maximum stability on any surface, the tripod comes with rubber feet that can be removed and replaced with spiked feet (included).

This model includes a VEO BH-160 Arca Compatible Traditional Ball Head that delivers the most solid grip possible, allowing the kit to handle a maximum load capacity of up to 15kg.

All the VEO 3+ models are delivered using Computer Numerical Control (CNC) engineering technology, with key load bearing components machined from aircraft grade aluminium which then receive leading-edge treatments, such as Vanguard’s advanced anodising process, which offers maximum protection from corrosion and maximise the life of the product.
