          Comments about Giottos MT-9271 Classic Aluminum 3-Section Tripod Legs:

          Purchased to replace an old 400 series Gitzo. I tried to go lighter and quicker by purchasing a monopod. I found myself relying on the vibration reduction system of the lens and too many times was disappointed with end results on images I had been excited about. The Giottos MT-9271 gives the support I missed especially when shooting with my 400mm and weighs about half of what the Gitzo weighed. Like the Gitzo, the legs spread and the camera platform can be positioned close to the ground. It also has sufficient extension in the legs to allow for setting up on the side of a mountain. And it does all this for less than $ .

            I have used this tripod a couple of time so I am still getting use to it but I can tell you that I really like be able to go from the ground all the way to more than seven feet tall is just awesome as I said I am still getting use to but I am sure after a couple more shoot with this tripod I know is going to rock. I use this tripod to shoot video and pictures at this point more video than pictures

            Comments about Giottos MT-9271 Classic Aluminum 3-Section Tripod Legs:

            If you're looking for maximum stability at a reasonable price, this could be your answer. It's big and bulky so not the best if you want to travel light but the payback is absolute rigidity and a standard of build that will see it through a nuclear strike, let alone the rest of your life.With a ball head mounted, the MT 9271 enables eye-level viewing for anyone up to 6 feet 6", even with the centre column down.Someone here mentioned a plastic centre column. It is NOT plastic, it is metal like the rest of the construction.

            Comments about Giottos MT-9271 Classic Aluminum 3-Section Tripod Legs:

            As a part of my job, I work with professional photographers a lot and have admired the quality of their gear. You can tell that they've owned a lot of their stuff for years and, although it has taken a beating, it all works just as well as it did when it was brand new. I feel like the Giottos MT-9271 is one of those pieces of gear. The only part I could see not lasting a lifetime is the plastic center column.

              Heavy Duty, tight fitings. There is nothing about this tripod that looks like it is going to fail with daily use. Rock Solid. I use it outdoors with a Gitzo G-065 Monitor Platform to create a wind proof, 'wide wheelbase' laptop stand. The front leg is tilted out further than the two legs that are close to me. You cannot knock this over. I put a velco strap around the laptop which has a sunhood over it to keep it from blowing to the ground.

              Comments about Giottos MT-9271 Classic Aluminum 3-Section Tripod Legs:

              This is a solid heavy duty tripod, with a 32mm upper leg. The large leg twist locks feel good in hand and work flawlessly. This is a big tripod I am 5'9" and with the legs fully extended I would need a step stool, and that's with the center column down. Great finish on all tubes and castings as well. If you are looking for a solid tripod this could be it. If you plan on hiking with a tripod, then it might be a bit heavy. If you are just making short treks from your car then it is worth the extra poundage, very stable. The lowest leg setting is around 10 inches, low enough for ground shots. If you buy this tripod get the short column MTC281 to get low. I had my 70-200 f2.8 on it shooting a boat race in 20mph winds, very stable.
              I spent a couple of weeks looking at many tripods and picked this one sight unseen. I could'nt be more satisfied its great.Its not made in Italy but Giottos design and quality is still outstanding, a great value.

              This tripod has everything i was looking for: solid professional build quality/features, ample height (fully extended and with the head it's taller than me). It's big and heavy so it won't be doing any traveling with me but for local shoots it's the perfect piece of equipment to have along. I compared this tripod against all of the others in the NY store, particularly the most popular pro brand (the other italian brand) and frankly I don't see what makes that other brand so expensive because they have no advantage over the Giottos (for similar size and features). The case, straps and even the little tool kit are all nice extras that many other brands don't include

                I use this tripod for most of my Landscape photography. I really like it how it gets low to the ground (with the short center column) to allow me to photograph big foregrounds. It also works great for my Aurora work as well. It is a little heavier the it's carbon cousin but, for the money it is fantatic.
