Some photographers hesitate to use a tripod due to the idea that they are cumbersome to carry and set up. Created for “on the go” photographers, the Vanguard VEO 3GO Series kits might well change their mind. The 204CB (carbon fibre), for example, folds down to an eminently portable 345.44mm (13.6 inch) and weighs just 0.81 kg (1.8 lb). It extends to 1.31 m (51.6 inch), can carry up to a 3 kg (6.6 lb) camera, and includes an Arca-Swiss compatible T-45 Ball Head. All 3GO models can be used as a tripod, a monopod or as a selfie/vlogging stick, and include a smartphone holder and Bluetooth remote. Each model allows for setting legs at three angles for perspective adjustment and easy extension of the centre column for low angle or macro work.
