Giottos VGR8265 overview

  • 1Description

Giottos' VGR8265-M2N Carbon Fiber Tripod/Monopod with Arca QR Ballhead delivers what every photographer is looking for--a solid professional tripod that folds down to a manageable size. This carbon fiber support will extend to 67.3", but its minimum working height is less than a foot--11.2", and it folds down to 16.3" for storage and transport. Although it weighs just 3.7 lbs, it can support up to 13 lb. The included quick-release ballhead has bubble levels and is Arca-compatible.

Plus, one leg of the tripod combined with the center column converts to a full-size monopod that extends to 69.2" and collapses to 28.9". The 5 leg sections use a quick twist-lock design, and the tripod has spiked metal feet for use on rough terrain.

    Giottos VGR8265 reviews

    VGR8265-M2N Carbon Fiber Tripod/Monopod with Arca QR Ballhead is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good feet - Not so good head I have yet to take my new tripod into the field but my initial assessment is that it is relatively light (compared to my Gitzo aluminum Studex 320) and very rigid for the small load I will be applying. It is a nicely compact unit that expands to more than adequate height. The ball head is another matter. The tension knob is located too near to the 90 degree slot that facilitates portrait orientation and interferes with my hands when I attempt to tighten the friction. To avoid this I am purchasing an L bracket for my camera so I will not have to cantilever the weight of the camera; the weight will always be centered over the center of the ball. Also, the leveling indicators are hemispherical rather than cylindrical which makes them less precise and they are located on the knobs rather than on the base. The materials and construction is top notch but the design flaws of the ball head causes me to rate this package as a 3.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lightweight with a lightweight price Bough this for landscape and adventure photography out in the back country. Love the weight and how sturdy it is. Also didn't expect it to come with a travel case. The monopod feature is a big selling point when weight can be an issue hiking in to a location. Only used it a handful of times but so far its awesome!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from very limited use The tripod is light weight, but not very sturdy.it can not be used for vertical photos. the first day I used it, the head fell off, and down a cliff. I contacted customer service at Giottos, but they did not reply to my inquiry.. I think for the price, it is not a very good tripod
