The Giottos Classic Series 9213 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod rises to a maximum height of 73.6" and weighs in at 4.4 lb while supporting up to 22 lb. But that's just the basics. It has a reversible center column with a unique triple-beveled, Y-shape that not only defeats torsion but allows the legs to fold down 30% closer to the column for a more compact form factor. It has a ballast hook at the bottom to add stabilizing weights and thanks to the combination of the column and the 9213's three-position leg spreading feature, you're able to shoot as low as 5.9" from the ground. The 3 leg sections offer a padded first section, quick lever locks, and an option to install 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.

      Comments about Giottos Classic Series 9213 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod:

      I use 2 of these tripads with the Nikon D800 and Nikon D4 with 500mm prime lenses. They perform just like the more expensive "professional" models with out the "professional" price.
