Vanguard, one of the global leaders in photo-video accessories, today introduced photo-video bags, ball heads with impressive loading capacities, new tripods series and models, and accessories!

Up-Rise Messenger bags: Work, Play, Shoot!
A bag that can carry your camera and lenses, as well as tote paperwork, plus a laptop!  UP-Rise Series messenger bags are unlike anything you've seen before, with unparalleled, detailed quality.

These ultra-padded bags double as camera/lens gear bags or regular messenger bags for carrying office paperwork.

They securely hold a laptop and have completely customisable interiors with super soft, thick padding for great protection. They break the mould of bag standards with an innovative ability to expand in size accommodate changing lens and gear needs. They expand with one easy zipper motion and reduce back down when the extra space isn't needed.

UP-Rise Messenger bags boast a Rapid Access System with top and front retrieval points for immediate in-action photography. Additional features include an adjustable shoulder strap with anti-slip pad, multiple pockets for accessories, removable rain cover, front pocket for lens cap, contact info holder, a back sleeve for slipping over case and luggage trolleys, an orange interior that makes it easy to spot loose gear and a magnetic locking system so zippers stay put.

UP-Rise Messenger bags are loaded with small features like protective tabs, which prevent shoulder strap hooks from scratching gear when retrieving from and returning to the bag.

The UP-Rise Messenger series includes 3 sizes, sizes 28, 33 and 38. The prices start at 109€* to 149€*.

The UP-Rise Messenger 28 can hold one DSLR with attached lens, 3 to 4 extra lenses, a flash unit, and accessories (memory cards, cables, battery, and charger) plus a laptop up to 12in wide screen.

The UP-Rise Messenger 33 would be perfect for one Pro DSLR with attached lens (up to 70-200mm f/2.8), 3 to 4 extra lenses, a flash unit, and accessories (memory cards, cables, battery, and charger) plus a laptop up to 15in wide screen.

UP-Rise 46: 2 sizes in 1
An Expanding System which enables the bag to have two sizes in one!

Meet Vanguard's sleek and sporty line of bags designed for amateur and professional photographers alike.

UP-Rise eliminates the frustration that comes from not being able to fit in both your camera and lenses. UP-Rise bags expands in size for larger capacity when you need it and shrinks back down to a smaller size when you don't.  It’s two sizes in one!

UP-Rise also has numerous pockets to hold accessories. Incredible attention to detail is the essence of this unique line of bags.

Bringing unparalleled precision, stability and lightweight design together, Vanguard SBH ball heads are a photographer's dream come true...guaranteed.

Professional photographers, you told us that you needed a range of ball heads with strength and precision without sacrificing a light weight for easy travel. We listened and our design engineers went to work. The result? Vanguard SBH Ball heads, the industry's first line of ball heads boasting all of these features.

Gone are the days of unstable ball heads; SBH ball heads offer a hassle-free experience.

SBH ball heads move swiftly and steadily so you won't miss the action. Constructed of solid, strong magnesium alloy, they're durable and yet lighter in weight than the industry standard.

SBH ball heads enhance your angle possibilities, too. Each model tilts from -35° to 90° (from -40° for the SBH-300) and can hold equipment up to 30kg. 

With seven models of varying sizes, SBH ball heads start at less than 200g (SBH-20P) to 750g (SBH-300) and can hold equipment up 30kg. All feature a dual safety lock for extra stability. A special universal Vanguard quick shoe for body/lens is also included so you can upgrade your system to quick-release immediately.

SBH ball heads are backed by a Lifetime Warranty, the best in the industry. They are available for order now for 49€* to 154€*.
