Its Grip Position Release System with a handle that allows 360-degrees of panning movements and -32 to +90 degrees of side-to-side tilt and -8 to +0--degree back to front tilt movement all around.

Bags
New to the collection is Skyborne, a thrill-loving backpack with an advanced design that includes air-infused cushioning in all of the key areas.

A rule breaker by design, Vanguard’s new Outlawz zoom bag is designed for fast-action shooting with its quick-access top opening with smooth-open zipper, to help photographers shoot faster than ever before.

The Instant Swivel Stop-n-Lock (ISSL) System securely repositions the central column in one simple movement, in just a few seconds, while maintaining the tripod’s stability. Other features include advanced camera vibration and shock control; legs that adjust to 25, 50 and 80-degree angles; quarter-twist leg locks; patented premium magnesium die-cast canopy and head; hexagon-shaped central column for extra stability; nonslip, spiked rubber feet for changing terrains; and a removable hook for hanging camera accessories.

This combination of precise tension and friction forces control increases the strength to provide outstanding security. ABH has exceptional stability with its Stability X3 system’s additional component between the semielliptical ball head and housing, providing a loading weight capacity of three times that of other ball heads.
