Product Description

Product Description

Giotto's designed the Vitruvian tripods with "reverse technology" legs so that when collapsed they fold through 180 degrees and surround the tripod centre column and head making the kits more compact and easier to carry between locations.

The quick action twist leg locks require only 1/8 turn to lock and unlock. Vitruvian also feature a split table centre column to improve low level photography options and built-in spirit levels to ensure accurate set up. All VGRN tripods are supplied with a head featuring quick release mechanism for fast and easy camera attachment/removal plus a carry bag.

The VGRN8265 is the largest available, with a maximum operating height of 171 cm and weight capacity of up to 9 kg. The VGRN8265 uses seven layer carbon fibre and weighs just 1.72 kg. The MH5501-652 ball head supplied with these legs offers on/off and friction control plus a separate pan lock. It has a quick release plate for fast and easy camera attachment/removal while spirit levels will ensure accurate set up. And it's not just a tripod, simply unscrew the tripod leg, remove the centre column and head, then join them together to produce a monopod. Plus this is the only size in the range that has built-in spiked feet too.

  • Folded height: 40.3 cm
  • Minimum height: 28.6 cm
  • Maximum height without centre column: 147 cm
  • Maximum height with centre column: 171 cm
  • Weight: 1.72 kg
  • Maximum weight capacity: 9 kg

Verified Purchase
I could not return one leg up into storage position without destructive force. The center column slipped down when loaded with 6kg (rated maximum load: 9kg), unless I fastened it with all my not too feeble strength. The friction between a Nikon D800 and the quick release plate is insufficient to keep the camera from rotating. No chance to keep it still in portrait position with a heavier lens attached, no matter how tightly the screw of the plate is fastened. I don't have problems of that kind with my Mafrotto plates.

It is really a pity that I could not test another specimen due to circumstances, but this one had to go back. Without the issues, it would be a really nice tripod.
