Giottos YTL 8314 overview

  • 1Description

The Giottos Pro Series 8314 Carbon Fiber YTL Silk Road Tripod rises to a maximum height of 75.6" and weighs in at only 3.7 lb while supporting up to 22 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 8314's three position leg spreading feature, you're able to shoot as low as 9.4" from the ground. The 4 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.

    Giottos YTL 8314 reviews

    Pro Series 8314 Carbon Fiber YTL Silk Road Tripod is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tripod Excellent finish, light weight with 180 degree center column cantilever and 360 degree horizontal rotation. It makes macro setup a bit easier in many circumstances. It is 2 pounds lighter than my previous tripod. The only negative is one of the let sections had to be tightened before I could use it. I have taken a few macro shot with it and it made setup very easy. If it weren't for the loose leg section I would rate it a 5 star.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Qualified Recomentdation I bought this for the long hicks to waterfalls and for use with my Canon 600 MM F4 8# lense. I am 6'5' and wanted the quick click leg stops. I hate Gitzos screw type and lost a camera into the water because of a gitzo tripod. I also wanted a tripod taller than 60 without using the center column. This was the only tripod fitting my need. It als only weighs 4.2 pounds whicxh is 2# lighter than my gitzo. This tripod id rated for 22#. No way will it hold that. I had to use locktite on two of the 3 screws to tighten the head with my 600 and 1Dx because the screws kept loosening up. I have finally wrapped gaffers tap around the top brackets. This is what happens when you try tomake a fancy tripod top that does everything in the world. It never does any of those thing to perfection. I would by this again only because it is the only tripod built for a 6'5er. I also had to tighten the quick cliks several times to keept the legs fron getting shorter from the weight of the camera and 600mm lense. I did finally get it tight enough.
