Vanguard Announces Espod Plus Tripod Line

The Espod Plus tripod line features a range of compact, sturdy and lightweight tripods designed for the photographer on the go.

Vanguard's new tripods start with the $79 203AP, which weighs in at 2.87 lbs and has a max load of 4.4 lbs. It extends out to 57.3 inches and folds down to 22.5". The 204AP runs ten dollars more and weighs in at 2.9 lbs but folds down to 20.5".

The $99 233AP is a bit heavier at 3.3 lbs, but it's also got a higher max load of 6.6 lbs. It reaches the same height as the others, and folds down to 22.7".

If lightness is your primary concern, the 234AP is the tripod for you. It's got a weight of only 13.8oz, but still maintains the 6.6 lbs maximum load of the 233. It folds down nice and small too, only 20.5".

All of the new Espod Plus tripods have leg release buttons that adjust to twenty-five, fifty and eighty degree viewing angles.
