The level of finish of Giottos YTL tripod is a level finish of a Rolls-Royce.
Smart design and high quality +++++
Large companies have much to learn from the designer of this tripod.
I feel lucky I purchased it.
Okay, so it's a good idea, and I thought that just maybe the other posts complaining about the sloppy quality were random, but no, the legs are very flexible, the tripod arrived with all three legs so loose that I could easily slide them by hand in the locked position. Also, the rubber feet are just cheap tube caps so they flex and slip on any kind of smooth surface. The articulated cantilever column is what I really wanted but the whole system just has too much flex and it was visibly moving with only a 5DMKIII and a 24-70.

Save your money unless you want to use this with a tiny little camera, and you are willing to be very careful and patient with every shot, and/or the narrower collapsed profile is a major issue that you absolutely must have.

My cheapo $100 aluminum Slik 700DX only weighs about a pound more (I weighed them side by side) and is so much more solid right out of the box it's embarrassing.

So I'm still shopping for a really great travel... Read more
I expected better from $450 tripod legs. When it arrived I opened it up and extended the tripod. Before I get too into this let me state that it's a goregous tripod. BUT extended and locked I applied minimal weight to it and the legs did not remained locked and slowly slipped closed. The instructions stated that if you turn the adjust lock more than 45 you void the warranty, so I just turned them 45. The legs were stronger after that but again if I applied weight (albeit this time more weight) again they slide back retracted.

I have contacted Giotto service and asked for advice on how to solve this issue. Have not yet heard back. I will update after their response.
