OK, I spent many an hour searching overer the web for the best tripod at the "cheapest" price. I eventually settled on the Benro 198M8 tripod and ordered it up from Amazon. I was happy with the arrival of it up until the time I noticed that the rubber tip of one of the legs was rolling around in the bottom of the bag wrapping the tripod. It is what it is on that...I dont know why it was like that, but it appeared to have torn off somehow in the packaging or shipping. I still took a good look at it befoe sending it back, set it up, played with the features and just was not fully impressed. It was not bad, but is was nothing special. I sent it back and decided to spent the extra $$$ on the Giotto's 9360.

Now that I have had a chance to work work the Giotto's tripod for about a week or so, I am very happy. I am 6ft tall, and after putting onthe Giotto's MH-5001 3-WAY pan head (roughly 5 inches high), I can use the tripod without extending the center column quite comfortably. Using a tripod with the column at it's lowest is more stable than if it is extended. I work on an ambulance at night, and this is where I do a lot of my photography, so the stability is wonderful for my extended shutter times. I am way more impressed than with the Benro product. There is a definate construction and quality differance notable on the two favoting the Giotto's.

Now for the cons as described by reviewers on this and other sites.
-Yes it is not the lightest tripod on the face of the planet. As a matter of fact, with the Giotto's MH-5001 head, it weighs in at 8.5 lbs in it's very nice carry carry bag that comes with it. I have it strapped onto the bottom of my "photography" backpack that I take with me hiking/walking for exercise.

I've paired this with a Giottos MH-1301/MH-656 ball head and they are a good match for each other.
The articulated center column mounting is great for positioning a camera at any height and any direction. This is really what made this tripod for me. I was looking at the Manfrotto Pro versions but they really don't have the versatility of this one. I use it a lot for close up work and it it gets the camera close to where you want it every time but it really does need a focusing rail to position the camera precisely for this type of work.
This is a very nicely built tripod - the quality is excellent and it appears to be very rugged. That is probably its major problem - this is a heavy tripod so it's not suitable for mountain hikes etc. I think I would have prefered a lighter MT-9350 or even a MT-9340 but, although these are in the Giottos catalogue, they don't seem to be sold in the USA (but are available in Europe). The much more expensive carbon fiber and lava versions don't seem to be much lighter so I didn't see the point of paying twice the price for these.
It its price, it comes with a nice carry bag, leg spikes, a short center column and 3 position leg angles for really low shots. I don't understand why a previous reviewer wants to use the tripod with the legs fully extended and at their widest position - the laws of physics just don't work that way.

This is a solid tripod with a lot of versatility. The ability to swing the column to a horizontal position is very helpful for macros. The tripod is fairly heavy, but with the weight comes excellent performance. I'm pleased with the purchase.

There are many times you read product descriptions and are somewhat disappointed when the product arrives. Not so in this case. In combination with a quality head (Giottos HH1000-653 in my case)it is a great setup. Certainly there are much more expensive tripods, but I found this one a fantastic combination of features (carrying strap, ability to cantilever the center column, twist lock legs, carry bag, etc.), weight, and portability. The first time I used it was with my Canon 7D with a battery grip and a 100-400mm Canon telephoto lens, and the setup was rock solid and operated smoothly. Of particular usefulness are the available additional quick-release plates; I keep one mounted to both camera bodies and one to the telephoto lens making changes in setup a breeze.

By JESSE HANOWELL on August 24, 2013
This review is solely based on my first impressions of this tripod. I ordered it with the Giottos Large ball Head MH1000-652 and I will also do a separate review on the tripod head as well.

The first thing I noticed was the construction was very solid. As an aluminum tripod and not carbon fiber, some have noted its mass as being an issue. I however feel this is a very light tripod, and dont think it will be a hassle at all to lug around on trails. I mainly do time-lapse photographic movies with a small Canon DSLR rig. ([...] So I needed to get a stable platform in adverse conditions. And I seem to think this tripod will do the trick. I have tested out its stability and concluded that the leg sections even at full extension will be stable, yet I believe that I will rarely need to go to such a height with it. It is far more stable at only a few leg extensions and this still provides an easy height for which to view the scene in the view finder with out having to stoop over.

Having established its stability in standard configuration, I then tested the extended leg configurations by pulling up on the leg cams and trying out the different angles. These all were even more stable than the first. This being a professional tripod, it can even get your camera a few inches from the ground, or a table if doing macro work in the field or studio. Combined with a ball head, one can easily set up the camera at a perfect 90 degree angle to a flat surface for reproduction work as well. The center column has some great features too, and I will get more into them in a moment.
