Vanguard releases new Alta CA tripod kits with pistol-grip head
Tripod and bag manufacturer Vanguard has launched a new range of tripods that are fitted with the company’s latest pistol grip style GH-30 head. The aluminium Alta CA leg-set comes in three or four-section options to achieve maximum heights of either 1565mm (61.6in) or 1550mm (61in), though both models are designed to carry a payload of up to 11lbs (5kg). The four-section Alta CA 234 legs offer a macro height of 8 1/2in (215mm) and weigh 3.64lbs with the GH-30 attached, while the three-section 233 legs can get down to 9in (230mm) and weigh 3.55lbs (1.61kg) with the same head.
Vanguard is also offering the same leg sets fitted with magnesium alloy fluid head PH-33. The tripods fitted with the PH-33 heads are called 234AP/233AP to distinguish them from the GH-30 kits, which are named 234AGH and 233AGH.
