great tripod legs

Just add a good ball head and you have excellent support for a mag-alloy prosumer DSLR (with battery grip) and 70-200 f/2.8 zoom (with 2x converter). Also great with the same camera and an old-school manual 400mm lens.

Better than real Gitzo,No I'm Not Joking

By

from Chicago  -  Pro Photographer

I've owned a carbon fiber Gitzo leveling tripod couple years ago that cost me [$] to purchase, surprisingly that tripod had horrible quality control issues where the central column can not be locked completely, it would always move a bit even though the locks locked down to maximum. I swear I would never get a Gizto again.This tripod, a Chinese knock off of Gitzo, has taken the gitzo design and made it much better and approachable to the norm. And what's surprising to me is that it's build quality is rock solid, there are no moving parts at all when the ballhead/camera is mounted onto it. It just sits there like a rock.It's got triple tripod head lock (Gizto only got 1) It's new design allows me to extend all the legs at once (Gizto can't do that) And it's real light weightIt also comes with free tripod bag, free camera strap...and a tools porch for all the tools needed to adjust the tripod. None of those are included for the Gitzo... Doh!so Kudos to Giottos for making such a successful duplicate with better build quality than the real Gitzo.

Great price Great product

By

from denver, co  -  Professional

This tripod is great for the price, it's heavy but not too heavy, the weight really is just right for long exposures or stabilizing a long lens. You really can't beat its value for the price. Most other tripods are double the cost of this one. The legs extend rapidly and are sealed to the elements.

Great Value

By

from Michigan  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Excellent for studio photography. I plan to use it for some field work. Very light for an aluminum based tripod. Very versatile with optional short stem base. Inexpensive Gitzo substitute for many projects.

I have owned several other tripods, and I have to say for the money this one is hard to beat.
