Giottos MTL9271B User Reviews
“This has no problem scaling over my own head at max height, and still remains stable. Build is very good with this tripod! The quick release levers are miles better than the twist-n-lock varieties and make it a joy to use. The tripod also has 3-various degrees of leg adjustment, altering the footprint of the legs. At the widest setting, you can get this tripod quite low to the ground very easily! Very versatile…” – By Invertalon

Giottos MTL9271B Features & Specifications
The Giottos MTL 9271B Tripod is a professional’s size 3-section aluminum model, made for use with larger and heavier professional camera setups. It shares much of the unique feature set that is inherent in Giotto’s MTL class of aluminum models of various sizes. With 31/28/25mm segments, the MTL 9271B is made for use with flagship professional SLR cameras and large ‘fast’ telephoto lenses, such as a 300mm f/2.8 lens. The MTL 9271B has simple and easy to operate flip lever style locks.
There’s not too much in the world of tripods that Giottos doesn’t think to incorporate into their best models such as this MTL 9271B. It has foam padded upper segments, a bubble level right at the neck of the unit, flip-lock levers which can be attended to in the field if needed, and an included tool kit which has a special short column attachment that allows an impressive minimum operating height.
The MTL 9271B gives a 5’3″ working height, meaning that a 6′ tall person will have their SLR’s viewfinder at eye level when the legs are fully extended and the column completely retracted. When collapsed it is 28.3″, and it weighs under 5 pounds.
