This tripod is near the top of the price range for aluminum models and an interesting alternative to Manfrotto's popular 055-series.

The basic design is aluminum with 4-section legs that don't rotate. Compacted and without a head, it's just short enough to fit in carry-on luggage. Another significant feature is a trick center column that can be mounted upside-down or off at an angle. The latter requires loosening both control knobs, raising the column until it's no longer obstructed by the bottom section, adjusting the angle of the top section, refitting the column, and tightening both knobs. Manfrotto's version of this feature does not have an angle adjustment; it's 90-degrees only.

The Giottos package includes a basic set of tools and a very short center column replacement, but no bag, strap, or spikes. With the column replacement fitted, it's possible to attach the camera directly to the tripod without a head, though with limited adjustment of the vertical angle. Lower mounting positions that would otherwise be obstructed by the bottom of the full column also become feasible.

This is a heavy rig. It's 5.2 pounds without a head, about a pound of which can be attributed to the adjustable center column hardware. With a decent ball head, the whole thing is close to 7 pounds. Most travel tripods are nearer to five, and the difference is noticeable.

In some areas, this tripod excels. The legs extend smoothly, as do the leg hinges and the tabs that control the leg angle. The foam leg grips appear and feel high in quality. The angle lock for the main column has metal detents, so no matter what odd angle you choose or the weight of your camera, it'll never slip down once tightened.

I purchased this hoping it's flexible column tilting abilities would substitute for a panning head.

If you have unlimited time to fiddle, change columns, and try "stuff" you can get pretty close. But there are "notches" in the tilt adjustment so you can't really get just the right angle.

After adding a panning head, I am extremely pleased with the performance of this tripod. It is quick to set up, it can swing out for macro and copy work. And it's well constructed. Even after a couple sessions standing in the middle of a creek, the legs are working smoothly (though the water was only about 6" deep, and did NOT come up over the first joint, and I dried the lower leg on my pants before closing it up.)

The separate tool kit is nice, with the wrenches you need to tighten legs and change stems, plus it holds the "stubby" shaft when not in use. (I leave this home when I go hiking though - no need to lose it.)

I do find that if I haven't used it for while I have to stop and think about what set screw needs to be loosened to change something like the head. I have also not had any luck finding spare parts so I can be ready for the inevitable "oops - dropped it" in the woods. But that is not limited to this line - few companies seem to make parts readily available anymore (that concludes the "old-guy whining" part of this review.)

In short - It does what a tripod is supposed to do - it HOLDS MY CAMERA STEADY. I've used it in wind, on ice, and in my studio. It's never failed to work well and without much extra fuss. I'd probably buy it again if I was looking for a new tripod, even knowing I'm going to drop another $125 on a head to go with it.

P.S. Looking for the best head to go with it?

The only problem is the weight, travel involved hiking in the mountains. The tripod is a excellent platform. Easy to adjust and use.

I am a serious amateur photographer and had a list of requirements for a tripod:
- a tripod that stood about 54 in. without the column so that I can take long exposures of streams, etc.
- the column to move horizontally for shooting down.
- locking levers for adjusting the legs
- rubber feet
- about 4 lbs.
- less than 24 in. when collapsed
- sturdy build
I bought the Giottos MTL9360B and am delighted with it. It has all that I wanted, feels really solid, and is well designed.
