The Giottos Pro Series 9384 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod rises to a maximum height of 71.7" and weighs in at 4.4 lb while supporting up to 17.6 lb. But that's just the basics. It has a center column with a unique cantilevered design that allows it to tilt 180 degrees in its yoke and rotate 360 degrees. It also has a ballast hook at the bottom to add stabilizing weights. Thanks to the combination of the column and the 9384's 3 position leg spreading feature, you're able to shoot as low as 7.0" from the ground. The 4 leg sections offer a padded first section and Quick Lever Locks for easy operation and optional spiked feet. The lowest leg has 8 calibration marks at 2.0" intervals to make precise leveling easy.

Note: This listing is for tripod legs only. Your choice of tripod head is available for separate purchase. However, the included short column with patented AutoSafety Lock can be used for limited 2-way control even when not using a head.

      Comments about Giottos Pro Series 9384 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod:

      This is my first tripod and overall I think it will do the job. I got this for long exposures and night time photography and think it will handle my set-up nicely. With the Y column, be prepared to only have three places to be able to put the center column back down it you use the extendable arm. Those spots are marked on the tripod but look to be painted on. So no idea how long they will last. That is really the only thing I don't like about it. And the instructions don't really help if you want to put in the short column. For that you need to email giottosusa.
