The MTL9351B aluminium tripod legs offer great stability as well as being extremely portable, featuring robust and durable aluminium construction, quick action lever leg locks and foam hand grips. The tripods versatility is further enhanced by the addition of the 3-D centre column function which allows you to remove the centre column from its vertical position, rotate it through a 180 degree angle and lock where required. This combined with the variable leg angle settings makes this tripod ideal for low level photography. The MH5011 3-Way head is new to the Giotto's range, it is made from cast aluminium and features easy to use pan + tilt handles, a quick release system with secondary safety catch and spirit levels to ensure accurate camera set up.
Giottos most popular aluminium tripod featuring an adjustable center column, lever leg locks, foam hand grips, low angle adapter and variable leg angle settings.
I had a tripod that I have had for many years and thought it was time to upgrade.
I have spent the last few weeks looking at several makes of tripod and was contemplating Manfrotto, a well made tripod and comes highly recommended. The cost was a major factor and after due consideration the giotto I thought was better value for money.
The tripod is well constructed and will cover all my needs. The spirit levels are a good feature as landscape photography is my game, saves me from having to correct horizons on PC.
Definately recommend this product for the serious photographer or the novice.
The MTL 9251b tripod is first class,but the 5011 has a cheap quality quick release plate. The tightening ring broke whilst at home,after its first use.The quality of the ring on the release plate,is similar to a metal toy from a Christmas cracker manufactured in China.
