Giotto’s all round tripod and head kits - Two tripods which are great value for money and perfect for your kit.
Giotto’s have added two tripod and head kits to their range. Ideal for those looking to buy their first serious tripod, they offer not only great support, but also great value.
MTL9351B and MH5011 kit
The MTL9351B aluminium tripod and the brand new lightweight MH5011 3-way head make a great all round tripod and head combo.
The tripod legs offer great stability as well as being extremely portable, featuring robust and durable aluminium construction, quick action lever leg locks and foam hand grips.
The tripods versatility is further enhanced by the addition of the 3-D centre column function which can be removed from its vertical position and can be rotated through a 180 degree angle where it can be locked allowing you to shoot at varied angles. This combined with the variable leg angle settings makes this tripod ideal for low level photography too.
