Vanguard VEO 3 GO 235AB Alu Travel Tripod/Monopod - Ball Head & Bluetooth
Maximum portability, this travel tripod folds down to just 33cm inches and weighs just 1.2kg.
Easy 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 all photographers.
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 ball head an 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. For full cleaning instructions, view our blog.
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.
The Arca Swiss compatible T-50 ball head allows you to use any Arca Swiss compatible quick release plate and extra QS-64 plates are available for multiple cameras. If you need a specialist quick release plate that Vanguard don’t supply, simply choose an Arca Swiss compatible quick release plate from any brand.
The T-50 ball head has an ergonomic locking knob that makes it easy to lock the head, even in cold and wet conditions where gloves are needed. It also includes a separate pan-lock so you can set your level and take 360° panoramic shots with ease. To ensure that you’re not unscrewing the head by mistake as you pan, the head is secured to the central column with grub screws that allow you to pan with confidence.
If you want to get the most from your smartphone camera, for example for a behind the scene shot, this travel tripod kit includes a smartphone connector for any smartphone up to 87mm/3.4 inches wide. To maximise stability (or to allow you to use the monopod as a selfie stick) there is also a Bluetooth remote shutter trigger so you don’t need to touch the phone as you take the photo.
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.
