All the benefits of the Vertical Column tripods with the added benefit of being able to move the column from its vertical osition through a 180 degree angle and lock where required. This feature, when combined with the variable leg angle settings, now offers you the capability to position your camera exactly where you need it to achieve that perfect close-up shot. Available in either aluminium or carbon fibre for even ighter weight. The carbon fibre tripod also features the option of 4 leg rections that mean the folded height of the tripod is more compact whilst there is no loss to the maximum height.

Then I was puzzled by the fact that the giottos 8350 tripod had a lowest shooting point of about 20cm compared to the 8-10cm of the manfrottos. This can be of a great importance when shooting macro photos. Anyways I purchased the Giottos considering this as a comprimise.
However, when I received it and tested it i realized that there are so many ways to make the camera to be close to the ground because of the two way column. So there is no problem at all.
Giottos tripod was the best possible buy for me. It looks nice, it is extremely light (especially compared to its aluminum brothers), it has padded legs and in my opinion it outperforms the manfrottos in every aspect. I wouldn't change it at all.
It is a highly recommended piece of equipment.
Light weight .... but actually very sturdy - even with a DSLR, long (500mm) lens and a steady wind.
I took ages to decide which tripod I really wanted, I already have Manfrotto quick release base plates so I really wanted a Manfrotto tripod or head. I went for this tripod and added a Manfrotto ball head. Great combination, and because it is so good and easy to use, I am using it more than my last tripod.
Bottom line: Would I buy again or recommend ... yes .. definitely.
