Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VANGUARD Alta+ 263AGH Aluminium Tripod with GH-100 Pistol Grip Ball Head (Accessory)
After much research I went for this tripod because a) it seemed very sturdy and b) I liked the sound of the gun grip. Some reviews said the gun grip wasnt perfect but I would thoroughly recommend it. It makes adjustments very simple and quick. Tiny adjustments are also easy.
Its also simple to adjust the tension on the grip and it can be locked solidly in place.
Some reviews said the grip was difficult to get in the bag but I dont know if I have a different bag but there isnt a problem with this. Can be stored and transported without having to remove the grip which is a bonus.
Due to its design the spirit level is hidden under the head but this isnt a problem for me. Its also heavier than some tripods but I take reassurance from this although if you're lugging it up and down vale then maybe pay more for a carbon fibre one (or less for a plastic one).
Over all Im very pleased and impressed. Looks the part, very pro looking and very effective.
Great price too on Amazon as it includes the head (£70 if bought separately)
