With that out of the way, let's proceed.

Great quality, not quite a Gitzo, but much more affordable.

It is a mid priced tripod with excellent qualities.

The Giottos MTL 9371B 3-Section Compact Aluminum Tripod is a great option to consider if you're looking for a sturdy and well-enough-built tripod without paying a huge sum of money.

In this review I will give you my experience with this tripod and list its pros and cons, however, I do seriously recommend going to Giotto's official site and check the specs of this tripod so you can make an informed decision if this is the tripod you need.

Here is a crash course of the things to keep in mind when purchasing a tripod that's not the $30 plastic and flimsy stuff you can get at Walmart:

- Pro tripods come in aluminium or carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is a lot lighter but a lot more expensive as well.

- Pro tripods require you to purchase a ball head and/or a panhead in order to use your camera with them, although it's not necessary it makes things easier when handling the camera. This tripod for example, doesn't require you to buy a ball head in order to attach a camera to it, but I do recommend you get one.

- The two main types of tripod heads are: ball heads and pan heads. Ball heads usually give you more flexibility as to how you set the camera angle wise, they're easier to operate and usually it's all you'll need for stills. Pan heads are also an option but their movement is limited (up and down, left to right and you can switch from vertical to horizontal position easier than a ball head). From my experience, the pan head is usually better for video or if you shoot stills of things in constant movement, the ball head can also do these but doesn't offer as much control as a pan head. Ball heads are perfect for everything else.

This is my first "serious" tripod (i.e. more than the $30 Walmart special). I personally like the levers instead of twist grips to set the height - I can set it up more quickly than the twist grips. Great quality, not quite a Gitzo, but much more affordable. I have no qualms putting my Canon 5D mark II on this tripod (with a Kirk BH-55 ballhead). If it came with a bag, would have given it 5 stars.

Sturdy, robust and easy to use. Coupled with Giottos MH2300-657 Head, the combination, so far, is my favorite camera tripod to use whether doing panoramics in Maine's mountains or along the Atlantic coast. Easy setup and very stable for those long duration shots of the night time stars in the Texas Hill Country or New Mexico sunsets.

This is my most recent of approximately 10 different tripods throughout my career. As solid a tripod as I have ever purchased, or even seen for that matter. A little on the high side in terms of price, however, it is quite obvious where the expense went. Quite happy with it, and would gladly suggest it to any photo enthusiast.

This tripod has some weight to it. I'm thankful that I finally made the choice to upgrade from the tripod I was using before. I needed something solid for the weight of my 5D Mark III and this is it. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
