Vanguard Auctus Plus 324AT Tripod Review
I am not really a “tripod guy” as I do as much handheld as possible but once in a while you do need a tripod so I have used a Vanguard Alta Pro 284CT for about two years for doing detail shots, product shots, brackets, and other things that need a stable platform. While theÂ Alta Pro 284CT has been a great platform, there have been times that I needed something a bit more solid. The problem is that a really good, heavy-duty platform has always been well outside my budget range, until theÂ Vanguard Auctus Plus 324AT came along.
Why a big tripod
A big sturdy tripod platform has several benefits over a smaller model. The main advantages are that it is more stable and can raise up higher. The downside is that a large tripod is going to be heavy. The Auctus Plus 324AT is not a tripod that you will likely strap to you backpack for an afternoon hike. But when you need a big, seriously stable platform, this is where the Auctus Plus 324AT shines.
