Giottos tripods are the bread and butter of this 20+ year old photography company. Though these tripods all share common characteristics, like one-handed leg adjustment, tough construction, interchangeable ballheads, and safety locking mechanisms so your camera doesn't fall free during an upside down or sideways shot. Other than that, each Giottos tripod is almost a unique piece of equipment. With these high-powered photography tripods, you can have your choice of size, adjustment style, and features, from bare bones Q-Pod mini-tripods to hulking, 8 segment video tripods. Giottos builds each of their photo tripods out of either lightweight carbon fiber or tough aluminum, and they come equipped with either lever locks or twisting leg locks, both of which can be adjusted with one hand. Some tripods by Giottos have geared center columns that can be cranked up or down, and still others have legs that can adjust to three different angles. When you add in Giottos tripod accessories like quick release ballheads, these tripods take on even more versatility. Whatever your photography needs, you'll be hard pressed to find a more stable and limber shooting platform than a Giottos photography tripod.
