I found this tripod extreamly good from the point of view of stability and ease of assembly. The carbon fibre material is very light and to carry it about complete with camera fitted is no problem. I use a gimbol fitted to the top of this tripod which gives you excellent control of the camera fitted with a 500mm lens. Very satisfactory purchase. Roy Woolley

I always wanted to buy a high quality tripod, although it is not a tool to use every day. I was trying to make up my mind whether to buy a Giottos or a manfrotto tripod. It was only after I purchased a giottos monopod that I realized the quality of the Giottos products.
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.

Whilst it appears big its not too bulky and is very light. Very sturdy and worked well with my canon 40d with heavy L series lenses no problem. Great value.

Simple really ... great product and for me, worth paying the extra for the carbon fibre version of this Giottos tripod.
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.
