Giottos Classic Series 9213 Aluminum YTL Silk Road Tripod
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.

Giottos MH-1301 Pro Series II Medium Ballhead with MH-656 Quick Release
The Giottos MH-1301 Pro Series II Medium Ballhead with MH-656 Quick Release System is a medium-sized "socket & ball" head that has been carefully designed and manufactured to precisely position the camera easily and securely.
In order to cut back on its weight, this head features a hollowed out heavily anodized aluminum ball. The body shell (socket) follows a slimmer and lighter structure design, yet offers increased hardness. Three separate knobs provide optimal security and convenience. In addition to the main locking knob, it also features a friction control knob, and a separate locking knob for pan control.
The attached MH-656 is a clamp style quick release system that is compatible with plates that fit the Arca Swiss standard. It comes with horizontal and vertical bubble levels, and anti-twist reversible tabs on the plate to prevent slippage when using the head in a vertical position.
