Giottos MTL8371B User Reviews

Finally Stable
“I like it a lot. Lighter than I thought it would be, as stable as I could hope for, (I shoot with a Canon 5D, often with a flash and with a variety of lenses up to my Canon 100-400mm f4.5 L IS with a 1.4 extender tube on it, and even my 185mm macro extended out on the lateral arm, (which I love the versatility of.) It would be fool hardy not to be careful of leg position for tipiness, but with due care this is stable. I love it. I believe there is always room for improvement, so no 5 star, but I have no reason otherwise to short it out.” – By R. P. RIBEYRE

Giottos MTL8371B Features & Specifications

The Giottos MTL8371B Professional Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs is a very versatile but yet still economical tripod. The unique center column can be used as a lateral arm with angle adjustment, which makes it especially ideal for nature and micro photography. It allows for 360° horizontal and 180° vertical adjustment, and the column can be positioned and set quickly with the locking knobs. The column can also be used upside down and reversed.

The leg materials are made of French-made high-strength carbon fiber tubing commonly used in aerospace engineering, and yield exceptional stability for its weight. Carbon fiber materials are very shock and vibration absorbent, but still relatively lightweight. The carbon fiber used for these legs is made from only 6 layers, and the spiral grain is visible on the surface, giving it its high-tech look.
