The Giottos Pro Series 9384 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod rises to a maximum height of 71.7" and weighs in at 4.4 lb while supporting up to 17.6 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 9384's 3 position leg spreading feature, you're able to shoot as low as 7.0" from the ground. The 4 leg sections offer a padded first section and Quick Lever Locks for easy operation and optional spiked feet. The lowest leg has 8 calibration marks at 2.0" intervals to make precise leveling easy.
