Article from Digital Photography School
Nivelo 204 Tripod by Vanguard was designed for new the mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras and other lightweight systems.
Looking for a lightweight and compact tripod for your micro four thirds system or point and shoot camera?The aluminum alloy Nivelo 204 tripod by Vanguard was specifically designed for the new generation of camera systems with a maximum loading weight of 2 kg / 4.4 lbs.
The first thing you’ll notice on the Vanguard Nivelo is the quick fold anti-spin central column (aka. QFCC System!). This great feature makes the tripod collapsible in seconds and ultra compact. The center column once inverted is also a perfect solution for macro photography.
Take panoramic shots or videos with the Nivelo 360-degree rotating head. Experiment with angle shots with its side-to-side tilting function. The Nivelo 204 does not have a quick release plate. The camera screws directly on the pan head which also features a bubble level. If you’re used to a quick release plate, like I am, it will take you a few tries to attach it quickly directly to the pan head. Once attached, you can safely walk around with your camera secured to the tripod to move to a different location.
Legs extend to partial or full length of 101 cm / 39,75 with a Twist-n-Lock system and shock-absorbing rubber feet.
For a total weight of 0.6 kg / 1.32 lbs and a folded height of 30 cm / 11,75, the Nivelo will easily fit in a small backpack for easy travel. It also comes with its own padded carrying bag!
Available in black or silver, the Nivelo 204 by Vanguard retails for $ 79.99 USD
