The Giottos Pro Series 9314 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod rises to a maximum height of 75.6" and weighs in at 4.6 lb while supporting up to 22 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 9314's three-position leg spreading feature, you're able to shoot as low as 11" from the ground. The three leg sections offer a padded first section and Quick Lever Locks for easy operation and optional spiked feet. The lowest leg has eight 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 two-way control even when not using a head.

          Comments about Giottos Pro Series 9314 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod:

          Short center column great for light and fast set-up without a ball-head: Good! Second longer column does all the gymnastics advertised very well: Good! But only one column top-plate comes with unit so you must buy a second from Giottos Parts and two of the head screws are not captive: Bad! Overall use-experience is outstanding so four stars composite rating.
