exceeds expectations

  • Summary: I deliberately bought a tripod rated for higher weights than I would put on it. The extra capacit means more stability when set for macro work and using the center column horizontally or at odd angles.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality

Heavy Duty, Well Made Tripod

  • Summary: I've only had this tripod for a month, and have only used it for a wedding shoot. This tripod is quite heavy duty and seems very strong. I wouldn't want to take it on a long hike, but for studio or on location work it's great. The case and carry strap are nice extras. This is a quality product and should provide many years of use.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Locks In Tight, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy

Awesome engineering, tremendous value!!

  • Summary: The Giottos 9371 has to be the best value on the planet for this size and weight tripod. The engineering is simply awesome! They've paid attention to the smallest details and its flexibility is unparalleled at any price. Even the carrying bag is awesome (sturdy, well padded, internal zipper pocket, etc.). Before buying, I compared to two "major" brands and decided that I couldn't come close to the same quality and value for even twice the price.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Rugged, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: None

Very solid tripod!

  • Summary: I needed a solid tripod for the studio. I bought this tripod because of it high weight capacity and hight.I have also own the Gitzo Explorer that has the off center fully adjustable mast. This feature kind of spoiled me with it's versatility. So when looking for another tripod I really wanted the off center mast feature. The Giottos center mast is different than the Gitzo but works very well. The tripod is very solid an very well made.

  • Summary: this tripod is great and lighter than i thought it would be. It works very well in all positions. It can get very low to the ground and since the center column comes out it gives more range of pics for macro or any other pics.

Great value, Well built

  • Summary: One out of many tripods (4 Gitzo's, 3 Bogen/Manfrotto's and now this Giottos) Bought on remote location after a Gitzo carbon rapid column cracked. The Giottos MT-9371 is a well-made tripod. Substantial in weight, sturdy, strong, and pretty unbeatable for the money. Is it a Gitzo? No, but it offers a lot of versatility, strength and is easy to operate. Leg locks are solid, as it the center column. I much prefer it to my Manfrotto's.
