VANGUARD today unveiled its most versatile, innovative photographic tripods and tripod head yet at the 2013 International C.E.S., in Las Vegas. The ground breaking GH-300T pistol grip ball head with built-in shutter release trigger reinvents the standard for what a tripod head can do. When paired with the ABEO Pro tripod, also introduced at C.E.S. 2013, the two provide unmatched, unlimited versatility for photographers.

VANGUARD introduced also its anticipated ABEO Plus tripod with PH-123V fluid video pan head featuring spring-loaded counterbalance, at the 2013 International C.E.S., in Las Vegas.

GH-300T Pistol Grip Ball Head
Featuring a unique, remote shutter release built into the grip handle, GH-300T enables users to trip their camera’s shutter without pulling their hand from the grip. It’s ideal for pursuing, and capturing, fast-moving subjects, even while making zoom lens adjustments.

ABEO Pro Tripod

Loaded with advanced features for rapid setup at any angle - on any terrain - ABEO Pro tripods combine our most celebrated innovations to help take photography to the next level.

PH-123V
PH-123V video pan head with adjustable drag tension provides incredibly smooth pan and tilt functions and rigid magnesium, closed-type construction for steady videography with HD camcorders and add-ons. A spring loaded counterbalance system makes it easy to work with heavy equipment and is easily activated and deactivated with a large, ergonomic switch.

ABEO Plus 323AT
ABEO Plus 323AT aluminum alloy tripod delivers the unwavering support videographers demand.
Its unique Quick Height Adjustment center column locking mechanism enables instant height changes with minimal effort. Simply flip the large lever lock open, adjust to the desired height, and flip the lock back into place.

GH-300T
Shutter Trigger on GH Pistol Grip Ball Head

Ground breaking. Innovative. First-of-its-kind. GH-300T pistol grip ball head with Hot Trigger shutter release reinvents the standard for what a tripod head can do for you.

This industry-leading grip head with built-in remote shutter release on the handle enables you to trip your camera’s shutter without pulling your hand from the grip. It’s ideal for pursuing, and capturing, fast-moving subjects, even while making zoom lens adjustments.

To operate in bulb, or “B” mode, simply slide the release trigger mechanism upward to manually control exposure time by depressing the release trigger. GH-300T employs a universal
2.5 mm DC shutter release cable input jack and comes with two cables compatible with 80 percent of DSLRs on the market today.

GH-300T also features two axes for panning: a 72-click-point panning base just below the camera mounting plate for perfectly aligned panoramic images, and a second 360-degree panning base at the tripod mounting base for horizontal panning and following subjects in motion. This second axis also makes GH-300T a perfect choice video work with an HDSLR.

With a locking force rated for over 17.5 lbs., GH-300T supports standard and large zoom lenses with impressive security. Its universal, 38mm quick release system with clamp knob and safety pin is compatible with other 38mm systems and allows for micro adjustments forward and backward while providing a steady center of gravity and no worries of accidental release.

Like its predecessors in the GH series, GH-300T provides smooth movements with impressive ergonomic control, thanks to its anodized center ball and Grip Position Release system.

The GPR System with pistol grip-style handle lets you 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 by simply releasing the handle. Its Friction Control System allows you to modify the level of resistance on the ball to accommodate changing equipment weight.

GH-300T’s handle also rotates 360 degrees to one of 8 positions for maximum comfort while shooting.

ABEO Pro Series
ABEO Pro & ABEO Pro Tripod Kits

Loaded with advanced features for rapid setup at any angle – on any terrain - ABEO Pro tripods combine our most celebrated innovations to help take 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-clickpoint 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 macrophotography 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.
