Digital Camera World Verdict

The VEO 3T+ 264CB is well made, versatile, cleverly thought out and portable enough – probably – for travel. That second part depends on what you call ‘portable’, though. It’s neither light nor ultra-compact when folded, so the VEO 3T+ 264CB not a tripod you can slide into a backpack but one you would strap to the outside.

The new VEO 3T+ 264CB, available from June 2021, is actually one of a family of four. It’s the largest the two sizes available – there’s a smaller VEO 3T+ 234CB with a slightly lower maximum height – and both are available in carbon fiber versions (reviewed here) or cheaper aluminium.
