Bill B - 2/10/2017 This tripod is exceptionally lightweight due to its construction materials. The weight was one of my key factors in purchasing as it suits my needs for low weight items to trek up hills and mountains with in search of landscape images. I was surprised by the rigidity of the overall unit given the small diameter tubing used in its legs, this rigidity must be due to the new carbon fibre used in the legs of the tripod. The low mass of the unit isn't an issue on site as the hook on the main column does allow the attachment of a bag or sack to be filled with local stones or sand for example and then to be attached to further increase the mass when needed for example on long exposure shots.

The legs are easily extended using the twist to lock/unlock nature of the design while the range of leg spread is more than adequate with a nice spring back on the final extension to engage the locking movement rather than pushing them back manually.

The tripod loses one star on its design from me as in my opinion a tripod costing this much really should come with a bubble level built in instead of having to buy a matching unit from Gitzo as an accessory, also there are no grub screw locks on the column top to secure the tripod head in place which is more of a worry.

It also loses one star in it functionality as the centre column loses some functionality to my previous Giottos MTL 8361B which allows the arm to be extended horizontally as well as vertically. However overall this is a well made, rigid and lightweight tripod which is well suited to the backpacking photographer and offers a good midway point between a travelling tripod and a studio or field based tripod, and I can recommend it as such.
