Product Highlights
  • Supports 5.6 lbs (2.6kg)
  • 4-Section Aluminum
  • 22mm-Max-Diameter Segments
  • Flip Lever Locks

The Giottos MTL 9240B-5011SB Tripod is a compact class 4-section aluminum model paired together with a small 3-way pan/tilt head.  It shares much of Giottos' feature set that is unique to their MTL class of aluminum models.  With 22/19/16/13mm segments, the MTL 9240B-5011SB is made for use with consumer-class SLR cameras with short telephoto lenses, such as an 18-100mm type lens.

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 9240B-5011SB.  It has foam padded upper segments, a bubble level right at the neck of the unit as well as a 3-way level at the quick release assembly, 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 MH 5011SB 3-way head has distinct locks for each axis of movement, with a 'snap-in' quick release system.

All together, this tripod/head combination weighs just 3.23 pounds and collapses to just under 23" (58.2cm), so it can comfortably live on the outside of a backpack.  Its working height is 50.9", so it isn't too much of a 'crouch-down' compromise in the world of travel tripods.

Compact, aluminum alloy tripod with 22mm maximum leg segments and a 3-way pan/tilt head with quick release
Giottos' trademark "Qel" flip lever locks, which can be disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled in the field if necessary
Foam-padded upper leg segments ease handling in cold and carrying upon shoulder
Spirit bubble levels (a circular atop tripod crown and a 3-way level at base of the quick release adapter) help level both legs and base of camera
Compact quick release plate with standard 1/4"-20 camera screw and an anti-twist video register pin
Individual leg angle locks and detachable center column decrease minimum working height
Rounded rubber leg tips
Weight hook at bottom of center column aids stability (must hang you camera bag or other heavy item from it)

            This tripod is an easy setup. It has snapping clamps that allow for quick leg extension and locking in place. Also has a place to hang your bag or whatever. It pulls down underneath the middle section of the tripod. Might be good to steady the tripod in heavy winds

              It's light, compact, yet solid and reliable.
              The only issue I have w/ it is that it seems practially impossible to get the levelers leveled!

                For budget minded photographers this tripod meets your needs. It is a little heavy compared to a carbon fiber tripod but at a fraction of the cost I don't mind the extra weight very much. All of the functional aspects of the tripod are top notch and I have not experienced any problems at all.
