Have tripod, will travel

Posted on Sep 17, 2021

With the world gradually opening its doors again, photographers everywhere will be thinking of travel and the kit they need. After camera and lenses, next on the packing list will probably be a tripod. Win this free-to-enter contest and you could be the proud owner of a tripod that’s perfect for toting aroundWin this free-to-enter contest and you could be the proud owner of a tripod that’s perfect for toting around: the Vanguard VEO 3GO 265HCB.

With a guide price of £229.99, the five-section VEO 3GO 265HCB has legs beautifully fashioned from high-quality carbon fibre for lightness without compromising stability, and it comes with a ball head. With its legs reverse folded, this tripod measures just 41cm, but fully extended with the two-section centre column, you get a 166.5cm maximum height. In the box comes a set of spiked feet and short centre column, so you can get really low, too.

To be in with a chance of winning the Vanguard VEO 3GO 265HCB, all you have to do is answer this question:

How high does the 3GO 265HCB extend with the centre column fully up?


The closing date for entries is 11 October 2021 – the first correct answer drawn at random after that date, wins.

The winner of the VEO HD 60A Spotting Scope and PA-65 Digiscope Adapter featured in PN issue 90 was Paul Williams, Caerphilly. Thank you to everyone who supported the contest and good luck next time.
