Giottos MTL9371B User Reviews
Shipped timely, great tripod
“This is my first “serious” tripod (i.e. more than the $30 Walmart special). I personally like the levers instead of twist grips to set the height – I can set it up more quickly than the twist grips. Great quality, not quite a Gitzo, but much more affordable. I have no qualms putting my Canon 5D mark II on this tripod (with a Kirk BH-55 ballhead).” – By Scott Robinson
Excellent professional tripod without blowing the bank account
“The Giottos MTL 9371B 3-Section Compact Aluminum Tripod is a great option to consider if you’re looking for a sturdy and well-enough-built tripod without paying a huge sum of money… This tripod is sturdy, flexible, full of options and it’s meant to last. Lest we forget, it’s a lot more affordable than other options out there. Take a good look of this tripod, it may be all you will need for a lot of years to come.” – By Diego Raigoza Nuñez

Giottos MTL9371B Features & Specifications
The Giottos MTL9371B Professional Aluminum Tripod Legs, part of Giottos’ professional-level MT series, has a unique center column design and is versatile and easy to use. With 31mm diameter upper segments and smallest segments of a respectable 25mm, this 3-section tripod is appropriate for all but the most extreme of telephoto lens applications-pretty much anything smaller than a 400mm f/2.8 or 600mm f/4 can be used with confidence on the MTL9371B.
The MTL’s unique swiveling center column mounting design allows it to be used as a lateral arm with angle adjustments, an especially useful combination for nature and macro photography. The column can also be used upside down and reversed. It allows for 360° horizontal and 180° vertical adjustment, without a tripod head needed, and the column can be positioned and set quickly by using the locking knobs.
The top of the center column separates from the main column, and by slipping this short camera platform into the swiveling center column mount you’ll effectively have a universal 3-way head for very low ground-level shooting.
