Vanguard really makes some great tripods. I have one that I bought off a Slickdeal 3-4 years ago and it's been rock solid.

This is nice that it comes with a ball head. I'd suggest getting a tripod based on your specific uses for example you might want a lighter one for travel (when that happens eventually 🤞). Which this one happens to be marketed towards. If you're doing studio work, this isn't the tripod for you.

I can't speak to this exact model, but company wise thumbs up. Happy shooting!

I have the 265CB which isn't much different than this one (other than carbon fiber), as best I can tell. It's the earlier model with locking clamps vs the twist lock legs. It's held up for maybe 5 years now and is still going strong. Wonderful tripod. The included ball head isn't the MOST solid (e.g., if tilted when locking down where you want your camera, it may move a little after you've locked the ball in place). I just upgraded the ball head and am in love with it again. For $75, this is a great deal from a company that makes quality products!

I got a 204ab when this was on sale a while ago and it looks exactly the same. From when I've used it so far, the tripod isn't the best at stability so if u tap your button on ur camera to shoot a photo it sorta wobbles. I got an external remote to take photos now to stop it from happening tho

204 handles a lighter load capacity, so this will be a bit more sturdy. A way to manage shutter release remotely is a great idea either way!

Is this good for indoor shooting with your smartphone? Does it allow full vertically down position for the camera?

Got it. It's good but I'll never get twist lock legs again. These are spinners and it's common for it to not lock...it just keeps on turning. Also traditional snap leg locks are faster and feel more secure to me. This is a good price though for this tripod.

I found when shooting on the beach, a grain of sand in the threads can destroy them. Threads are vulnerable, slower and take a lot of wrist action. The visual assurance is unnecessary. If you clamp them, they stay. Threads can loosen.
Good points.

On the beach, or in a desert, that grain of sand can quickly get on the barrel of your zoom lens. Check it all around before turn it back to its "closed" position.

I would highly recommend picking up a shutter remote for your intended purpose. They're not that expensive and will save you from any camera shake when taking the shot.
Agreed.
Also, the remote is very useful for self portraits (or group shots when you are in the picture).
With the self timer there is always stress trying to make sure that you look fine at the moment that is to come.

Hi all,
Just a friendly reminder that this deal thread is about a tripod. Let's keep our comments and focus on that. You might find The Lounge or The Podium more to your liking if you're looking for a more open kind of conversation. Thanks!

I have only used a tripod once in 1977 taking a picture of Buckingham fountain at night. Good name below fair" price....just not an item I need.
