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 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.
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.
I would definetelly reccomend this tripod to a friend.
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.
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.
All in all a very good tripod. There are better but you will have pay a hell of a lot more. Recomended.
The tripod is well constructed and covers all my point in the list to expect from any other expensive brand. The spirit level(s) is an extremely good feature, the three way head allows to shoot pictures from many different angles, adjustable column and legs allows to go down safely without compromising pan-tilt funtion. Solid built, and feels well balanced without being very heavy. Fast to set up and position, the center column is quite sturdy even in bended position.
Absolutely fantastic tripod, would recommend this product to all my friends or anybody bieng a serious about photography and newbies too!!
PS: I bought it from Jessops due to situational convinience ... but Amazon does provide quite a Reasonable & Competitive Prices too, I would have saved some money if I was not travelling this time.
