The Giottos Pro Series 8383 Carbon Fiber YTL Silk Road Tripod rises to a maximum height of 72" and weighs in at only 3.5 lb while supporting up to 17.6 lb. Eight-layer carbon fiber construction maximizes its strength-to weight ratio. 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 has a ballast hook at the bottom to add stabilizing weights. Thanks to the combination of the column and the 8383's three position leg spreading feature, you're able to shoot as low as 7.0" 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. However, the included short column with patented AutoSafety Lock can be used for limited two-way control even when not using a head.
