Product Review:

The Vanguard VEO 2S CM-264 TBP120T is a lightweight, compact and portable carbon fiber monopod with foldable tri-feet for added stability. It includes a unique VEO 2 BP-120T ball head that can convert to a pan-head in seconds, as well as the new Arca-compatible QS-72T that can hold a smartphone and other accessories.

Whether you're looking to lighten your load, or need additional stability in a location where a tripod won't work, this monopod could be the ideal solution for shooting photo or video. With the portability of a monopod and the added tri-feet, you have increased stability and functionality over a standard monopod, while maintaining a tiny footprint.

The VEO 2S CM-264TBP 120T has a maximum load capacity of 26 lbs., which is perfect for almost any style of DSLR/mirrorless camera, whether for photography or video. Alternatively, it can be used for spotting scopes or binoculars.

An added carabiner allows the lightweight monopod to be attached to bags without a tripod holder; or alternatively, the rubber foot and wrist strap allow it to be used as a walking support for maximum portability, making moving from location to location fast and effective.

When needed, the ½” turn lock/unlock twist leg locks enable setup and height adjustments in seconds, allowing you to shoot at the level you need for the shot, from 24" to 68". The maximum length also makes this monopod comfortable for a wide range of heights.

The leg locks feature a robust and easy-to-maintain design. With the growing trend for long-exposure water photography, it's easy to get water, mud, or sand into the locks. This design makes it easy to dismantle the legs, clean them, and then reassemble them -- maximizing the life of the product.

The tri-feet are permanently fixed but flip up for transporting the monopod -- deploying fast with just a finger. The base also includes a ball joint, which can be tightened for maximum stability, or loosened to allow more dynamic movement; for example, tracking a moving subject. In addition, the tri-feet allow you to pan using the monopod itself

The unique design of the Arca Swiss-compatible VEO 2 BP-120T head delivers maximum versatility for amateur and professional photographers alike.

As a ball-head, it has a solid grip for gear weighing up to 26 lbs. and includes two ergonomic locking knobs that are easy to use, even in cold and wet conditions.

As more photographers take video with their mirrorless/DSLR cameras, Vanguard has developed the VEO 2 BP-120T to create a head that does both. Simply screw in the telescopic pan handle (supplied), and you can follow moving subjects with ease. Alternatively, this can then be used for a spotting scope or binoculars, or even vlogging on the go.

As another benefit, the QS-72T Arca-compatible quick-release plate incorporates a smartphone clamp that can hold any smartphone up to 3.54" wide. This includes a cold shoe mount for a light or microphone, and a 1/4" thread on the side to attach a support arm for even more versatility. It also includes a Bluetooth remote control for iOS or Android phones to allow you to trigger the camera/video function remotely. As a result, this is a perfect tripod to take your smartphone photography to another level, or use for vlogging at home or on the go. 

Either way, this simple solution enhances the versatility of the monopod and takes away the need to compromise when choosing between a ball head and a pan head.

In the unlikely event another head is needed, the VEO 2 BP-120T can be removed to reveal a standard 1/4" thread that any head can be attached to, though a standard 3/8" adaptor may be needed for larger heads.
