The brand new Auctus Plus tripod is designed from a studio to an outdoor shoot in a snap and give to photographers a strong stability and large flexibility.

Auctus Plus’ leg locks are exceptionally solid, secure and seal out dust and sand to provide impressive reliability. Setup is quick, too, with one-twist-to-loosen locks. Unique All-terrain Feet convert from anti-rust spikes to angled, tectured rubber for use on an array of terrains. It’s flexible, too, with legs that adjusts to 25, 50 and 80-degree angles for use on uneven terrain and for low-angle photography.

Nivelo Tripod has been imagined to be super lightweight and ultra-compact! Nivelo, available in two colors, is as light as the mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera it’s made for thanks to its innovative open canopy with Quick Fold Central Column (QFCC system).

Designed for studio and outdoor shoots
Auctus Plus tripod series

Vanguard launches top-of-the-line tripod that enables extreme stability, flexibility and fine tuning.

Professional photographers whose shoots take them from studio to outdoors will love Vanguard’s new Auctus Plus Series tripod. This ultra-stable, flexible tripod enables precise positioning and fine tuning that is great for the studio with extra features that make outdoor shoots a breeze, too.

Vanguard, one of the global leaders in photo-video accessories, introduced the tripod at fairs in US (C.E.S. Show), in Japan (CP+), as well as in Europe (for example in the U.K. at Focus On Imaging).

Available in carbon fiber or aluminum, Auctus Plus tripod offers extreme stability and flexibility. Its ultra-smooth Extreme Support Height Positioning (ESHP) Wheel System is a dual-function wheel gear that adjusts central column height securely while supporting heavy gear. This advanced gear wheel also enables precise height fine tuning while holding an extreme loading weight. 

It’s designed to go from a studio to an outdoor shoot in a snap with additional features for the outdoors. Auctus Plus’ leg locks are exceptionally solid, secure and seal out dust and sand to provide impressive reliability. Setup is quick, too, with one-twist-to-loosen locks. Unique All-terrain Feet convert from anti-rust spikes to angled, textured rubber for secure footing on an array of terrains. It’s flexible, too, with legs that adjust to 25, 50 and 80-degree angles for use on uneven ground and for low-angle photography.

Other features include an innovative locking camera screw wheel, large bubble level, anti-shock ring, leg scales for precise height adjustment, rubber foam grips and bonus snow shoes.

New generation kind of tripod
Nivelo tripod series

Nivelo Collection, the New Year’s must-have camera Tripod for stylish shutterbugs.

Finally, it’s here: A stylish Tripod collection for shutterbugs who want better quality shots without schlepping bulky gear and dealing with setup/takedown hassles.

Vanguard, one of the global leaders in photo-video accessories, introduced the tripod at fairs in US (C.E.S. Show), in Japan (CP+), as well as in Europe (for example in the U.K. at Focus On Imaging)

“Now you can take better quality photos anywhere without bulky gear weighing you down,” said Anne Lee, founder and CEO of Vanguard. “Nivelo products are stylish and convenient with impressive performance that rivals what the professionals use.”

Nivelo Tripod is a sleek, lightweight, compact tripod that folds in a few seconds flat and boasts all the features of a full-size tripod, minus the hassle. Its innovative open canopy lets you invert the Quick Fold Central Column, which is great for macro photography. Plus, it collapses in one second and is so ultra-compact; you can tote it in a medium-sized purse or small bag.

It’s reliable, too, with its 20-mm diameter legs that provide solid support and position at 23 degrees for great stability. Its strong Twist-n-Lock leg locks enable you to extend the leg sections and lock with incredible speed.

This stylish, new generation kind of tripod is perfect for popular compact mirrorless, interchangeable lens cameras and other digital cameras. Simply mount your camera to Nivelo’s head with its Quick Attach Camera Screw. Take smooth panoramic shots with its 360-degree rotating head and unique-angle shots with its side-to-side tilting function.

Other features include shock-absorbing contoured rubber feet, a bubble level on the pan head for balance and an anti-spin central column.

Nivelo Tripod is available now in black and silver with additional color options coming soon.

“The Nivelo Collection is a reflection of our efforts to create outstanding products for photographers at all levels of expertise and experience,” said Anne Lee.

Fusing the smooth precision of a ball head with impressive ergonomic control, GH-100 enables you to position your camera or spotting scope quickly with unmatched versatility.

This well-engineered ball head has the Grip Position Release System with an industry-leading pistol grip-style handle, which rotates 360 degrees and enables you to unlock, reposition and lock gear into place with ease.

Depression of the handle allows 360-degrees of panning movement and -32 to +90-degrees of side-to-side tilt and -8 to +90-degree back to front tilt movement all round. It instantly locks into place with simple release of the handle.

Other impressive features include its Friction Control System, which allows you to modify the level of friction on the ball to accommodate changing equipment weight, such as switching to heavier lenses.

3-in-1 pistol grip ball head:
  1. Ball head - Perfect for following moving objects, the GH-100 gives you the freedom of movement. Depending on the weight of your equipment, the FC (Friction Control) System can quickly and accurately be adjusted allowing for precise target accession.
  2. Pistol grip head - Tighten the friction control until the head is stationary, experience the ease of use with the GPR System: it enables you to position your equipment with speed and precision by pressing the handle to release the grip, positioning your gear, and then releasing the handle to secure a solid desired position.
  3. Panoramic function - The GH-100 offers the unique function of “72 click” panoramic function. Whatever lens you may use, you will always be able to take perfect panoramic shots, thanks to the very precise 72 clicks of 5 degrees function.
Precision-cut ball heads
SBH ball heads

Best-selling SBH precision-cut ball head moves swiftly and steadily so you won’t miss the action.

Constructed of solid, strong magnesium alloy, it’s durable and yet lighter in weight than the industry standard. Unlike other ball heads, SBH is designed with molded body parts, not assembled cut parts, like the competition. Its smooth locking knobs allow you to move the ball head swiftly and securely into the perfect position, even with the heaviest lenses and cameras.

It includes at least one bubble level, 360-degree scale, fine-tuning knob and a 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.
Endeavor ED binoculars
Expect vivid, 3D viewing to the extreme, because there’s nothing typical about top-of-the-line Endeavor ED binoculars.

It delivers sharpness and clarity like never before with exceptional light transmission and remarkable color resolution and contrast. Other features include an ergonomic, open bridge design for comfortable use, wide view angle, BaK4 roof prisms, anti-reflection coating, large focus adjustment wheel and long eye relief.

The magic behind its performance lies in the premium ED glass, which reduces color dispersion to provide high-resolution colors and clarity. Endeavor ED has BaK4 roof prisms and special lens coatings for unbelievable quality. Nitrogen-charged and O-ring sealed, Endeavor ED is waterproof and fog proof to take on challenging weather conditions.

Spirit ED binoculars
Spirit ED’s light transmission of up to 90 percent results in a near-perfect viewing experience.

Its advanced lens and prism design with ED glass means you’ll get up-close and personal with nature, unveiling details in a way you never thought possible. Spirit boasts user-friendly features, too, with a lightweight, comfortable-to hold body design, twist-out eyecups for long eye relief, large focus adjustment wheel and 100 percent waterproofness, so the weather will never slow you down.

Lenses, prisms and coatings
ED Glass

ED glass effectively reduces color dispersion and enhances color resolution and contrast. Different light wavelengths do not come to the same point after passing the lens. ED glass helps to correct this problem. As a result, the image is sharper.

P2 Phase coating
Developed for enhanced image clarity and true color reproduction, P2 Phase Coating treatment to BaK4 prisms creates crystal clear images and high resolution observation.

V-Max coating
V-Max Silver Coating is among the most cutting-edge lens treatments in optics, providing crisper, more vivid images and sharper contrast due to impressive light reflection.

AR coating (Anti-Reflection)
AR Coating on all air-to-surface lenses dramatically minimizes light reflection on the lens. Coupled with fully multi-coated treatment, it ensures near perfect light transmission and image recognition, enabling the brightest images possible, even on the sunniest days.

Emerald coating
The Vanguard Emerald coating is specifically designed to provide the full spectrum of color within the band of green tones. This coating is essential for nature enthusiasts, because it ensures the most vivid and natural shades of green.

Nitrogen charged and O-ring sealed, waterproof and fog proof to take on challenging weather conditions.
