Vanguard have launched the ABEO Pro series of tripods at C.E.S 2013.
Loaded with advanced features for rapid setup at any angle – on any terrain - ABEO Pro tripods combine our most celebrated innovations to help taking your photography to the next level.
ABEO Pro tripods provide unmatched, unlimited versatility by bringing together our GH-300T pistol grip ball head with Hot Trigger shutter release, Multi-Angle Central Column with Instant-Swivel-Stop-N-Lock system, Quick Adjustment central column pivot lock, individually adjustable leg angles with ergonomic release buttons, and 3-in-1 All-Terrain Feet.
GH-300T (included with ABEO Pro 283CGH and 283AGH) is the industry-leading grip head with built-in remote shutter release control. It lets you trip your camera’s shutter without removing your hand from the grip — perfect for capturing fast-moving objects. Dual panning axes, including a 72-click-point panning base, ensure precise panoramic photography, and smooth movements for following the action, even when shooting HDSLR video.
ABEO Pro’s Multi-Angle Central Column system allows users to move the central column from 0 to 180-degree angles in variable vertical and horizontal positions, making macro photography and unique angle shots a breeze; its 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.
When the central column is set in an angled position, a Quick Adjustment lever lock makes pivoting the central column simple; flip the lock open, rotate the column to the desired position, and flip the lock closed.
ABEO Pro’s legs feature quick-flip locks and individually adjust to 25, 50, and 80 degree angles with use of ergonomic release buttons for easy setup on uneven terrain or spreading out flat for super low angle photography.
What’s more, 3-in-1 All-Terrain feet provide the perfect solution for any surface: angled rubber, spikes, and a set of snow/sand shoes.
The ABEO Pro range varies in price from €269.90 to €649.90. They will be available by mid January 2013.
There are also four new kits available, which merge ABEO Pro tripods with the SBH ball head and GH-100 grip head. They start at €249.90.
