Vanguard VEO 3 GO 235AB Tripod with T-50 Ball... Overview
This VEO 3 GO 235AB Aluminum Tripod/Monopod with T-50 Ball Head from Vanguard is a support system that features a tripod with a detachable leg and removable center column that can be combined to form a monopod with a 54.3" height. Cameras, lenses, or sport optics that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the included quick release plate, which is secured to the tripod/monopod's ball head using an Arca-type quick release clamp. The T-50 Ball Head is removable, provides up to a 91° tilt for portrait orientation and 360° of independent rotation, and can be locked into place along its range of movement. Also provided is a smartphone connector and a Bluetooth remote, allowing the monopod formed by the detachable leg and removable center column to be used as a smartphone selfie stick.
When configured as a tripod, the VEO 3 GO 235AB Aluminum Tripod/Monopod with T-50 Ball Head supports up to 8.8 lb and measures 13" when folded. Each of its 5-section legs features an independent spread, a 3-position angle lock, and twist locks for rapid deployment. As a tripod, it can be set at a minimum height of 7.9" when its removable, push-and-pull, rapid center column is substituted with the included Low-Angle Adapter. Together, the three legs can be extended to obtain a maximum height of 41.8 or 53.3" when used with the center column fully raised. Each of the aluminum alloy legs includes a rubber foot, and to further enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces, including soft or uneven soil, a set of spiked feet is also provided.
For added versatility, the center column is reversible, facilitating lower-angle photography where an attached camera is positioned among the tripod's legs instead of above them.
A carry bag is provided for storage and transport.
