About Giottos YTL 9314

The Giottos Pro Series 9314 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod rises to a maximum height of 75.6" and weighs in at 4.6 lb while supporting up to 22 lb. But that's just the basics. It has a center column with a unique cantilevered design that allows it to tilt 180 degrees in its yoke and rotate 360 degrees. It also has a ballast hook at the bottom to add stabilizing weights.

Thanks to the combination of the column and the 9314's three-position leg spreading feature, you're able to shoot as low as 11" from the ground. The three leg sections offer a padded first section and Quick Lever Locks for easy operation and optional spiked feet. The lowest leg has eight calibration marks at 2.0" intervals to make precise leveling easy.

Strong as a Missouri mule


from Scottsdale, AZ  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is the most stable tripod I have had todate. Once it is setup nothing including high winds can budge it. While too heavy for long hikes it makes a great car-carrying camera securing tripod. Adjusting the legs and the center pole gets it down to ground level for securing in-focus foregrounds when photographing landscapes.


Every Bit of Heavy Duty


from South Florida  -  Photo Enthusiast

Excellent tripod. Solid system and very well constructed. This was specifically purchased for my D800 with a 80-200 mounted in mind. I feel very confident with the security the Giottos 9114 affords. I don't have to use a center post and can still get down to 11". I recommend for anyone that's not afraid of a little extra weight.


Make this your first tripod.

Delivers just as described. Have found nothing to fault this tripod. Best of all it is compact enough to fit on my backpack easily. Highly recommend this product.
