5.0 out of 5 stars Great product from giotto 5 Mar 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andrez 2 Dec 2009
Absolutely fantastic tripod!Forget about expensive Manfrotto.This Giottos tripod is a great value for money.

The three way head allows you to shoot pictures from many different angles,adjustable column and legs allows to "go down " with camera without getting dirty.

Solid built,and it's not very heavy.I could easily attach my d80 with sigma 10-20mm without worrying that it's gonna fall.

Love it.

1.0 out of 5 stars 5011 quick release plate 8 Jan 2011
By minx
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars The good and the bad 15 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
MTL9351b Tripod is excellent and easy to operate.Bit stiff at first but eases off.
Most disaappointed with the MH5011 3 way head quality it feels rubbish compared with the tripod.
The head does not default to 180 degrees in landscape nor to 90 degrees in portrait position.
The bubbles in the head are so tiny you keep missing them when trying to line up.
The head certainly does not appear to be Giottos quality.
All other tripod heads I have had all default to the correcy alignment.
I suggest just buy the tripod and get a better head.

3.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable tripod but room for improvement 9 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
This tripod was my first heavy-duty one, replacing an old lightweight one.

I find the tripod easy to use. The legs extend easily, and the locks hold very firmly. So far, I have used this tripod standing on concrete, wet sand, and grass; it has performed admirably, and has allowed me to get some good shots. Even in quite windy conditions, the tripod has remained very stable. I have only used it in the basic layout, and have yet to experiment with opening the legs wider, angling the centre post or inverting it.

However...

While the tripod is good, the acccompanying head is a disappointment. The quick-release D ring in the back is often a bit too quick to release. Unless you are using the camera in landscape mode, I find the D-ring will not hold the camera in place (particularly if using a zoom lens). If you do get the ring tightened enough to stay, the D-ring will then not return to the flat position, making it impossible to attach the plate to the tripod. My suggestion is to ignore the folding D-ring and take a hefty screwdriver with you instead - it save you mangling the edges of your coins!

Also, be aware that the matching Giotto's bag will hold the tripod, but will only take the head if you unscrew one of the handles on the head, which adds to the time needed to set it up.

Overall, a reasonable tripod and head, but with definite room for improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the range 17 May 2010
It took me about a month to review and consider all (read top 5 brands) tripods on the market and finally I stopped at Giottos. Its a real value for money. At the beginning I wanted to go for a Manfrotto with a horizintal positionable center column but after having holded it in my hand I decided to look for something else cause it didn't convinced me to be sturdy enough. After receiving Giottos MTL9351 and having played with it a couple of times I was surprised how fast it is to set up and position and the center column is even more sturdy in bended position as expected - you just need to bu sure that all the bolts and knobs are tightened and in their positions.
I would definetelly reccomend this tripod to a friend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value! 11 Feb 2011
I have always used Manfrotto, nice but damn expensive. So this time I'd try another brand. A friend recommended Giottos. So I went for it. I am pleased with it except (and this is why I only gave it 4 stars) as someone commented the head does not when switching from portrait to landscape go to a default position & the bubble levels are a tad on the small size. I'm not bothered as my 7D has a level built in. The build quality is good. And if you need a very low height, this goes right down to ground level. Great for macro work.
All in all a very good tripod. There are better but you will have pay a hell of a lot more. Recomended.

I needed a tripod that was adaptable, lightweight and to be used for both still and video so I bought this as a used item. It arrived in original packaging complete with all tools and instructions - as new. I've not used this seriously yet, but played with it. Versatility is amazing, controls and clamps are simple to adjust and very firm when tightened. You can easily adjust the angle of the height tube by nearly 180 degrees so you can set up to see around corners, pillars and other obstructions. The height tube can be removed so the legs can be set at a low angle, almost to the floor (useful to view under obstacles)and it can also be fitted upside down for close up or macrowork. Each leg angle can be individually adjusted to suit all types of terrain. Rotation can be either by head rotation and/or tube and both are very quiet (for sound recording on video), both can be locked. Overall I am very pleased with this tripod and would recommend to a serious amateur or even a professional.
