VEO 3GO 265HAP Aluminium Travel Tripod is a compact and lightweight, 26mm, 5 section travel tripod kit with an Arca compatible compact 2-way pan head, designed for taking your spotting scope to far flung locations, or to capture photos and video with your camera.

For maximum portability, this travel tripod folds down to just 41cm/16 inches and weighs just 1.6kg/3.4lbs. This makes it simple to pack for any trip, wherever in the world you’re travelling

Don’t be fooled by the size though. Despite this portability, this feature packed travel tripod delivers a versatile solution for any nature lover or photographer.

This tripod extends to 162cm/64 inches (122cm/48 inches with the central column down) making it a great option for spotting scopes or photography.

The Arca compatible VEO PH-20 2-way pan head includes a fixed pan handle, so there is no fear of losing it on the go, or at home.  However, when packed, it folds between the legs of the tripod to make it easy to pack away.

If your spotting scope has an Arca compatible foot, then it can be placed straight between the clamps of the head for the most solid foot.  If not, then it can be attached to the long QS-71P quick release plate with a non-slip pin which will hold it secure.

If you want to use with a camera too, we'd recommend a separate quick release plate, like the 4-way Arca compatible QS-65 quick release plate (or QS-74 for larger DSLRs) that allows you to turn the head into a 3-way pan head.  Simply put the tripod head at 90° (where the camera would face straight down) and then attach the camera in the portrait position (facing left or right).

As well as traditional tripod shots, this travel tripod allows you to shoot low angles or simple macro shots  by either reversing the 2-section column, or removing the pan head and attach the head to the Low Angle Adapter (LAA) that is included. This ability is enhanced using the three easy set leg angles (21°, 50° and 80°) that also allow you to set up tripod for maximum stability on any terrain.

Where you don’t need a tripod, a leg can be removed in seconds and attached to the central column to create a monopod, vlogging stick or a selfie stick.

The rapid set twist locks allow the tripod to be deployed in seconds, minimising the risk that you miss a fleeting shot. In addition, these leg locks have been designed to be easy to dismantle, clean and reassemble, allowing you to setup the tripod at the beach or in dirty conditions with the confidence that you can clean them with ease when you get home.

The tripod also comes with a choice of rubber or spiked feet, allowing you to choose the best setup for the conditions.  Windy?  No problem.  Simply mount a camera bag or additional weight to the retractable hook located at the base of the centre column.

To top it off, VEO 3GO travel tripods take advantage of Vanguard’s investment in the latest Computer Numerical Control (CNC) technology with significantly improved tolerances that delivers a higher quality end product.
