    Not available at B&H or Adorama? Reviews hard to find? Stupid low price for carbon fiber?

    At first glance, I'd pass. Try to save up for a proper Manfrotto system at least.

    Those are Chinese knock-offs of Giotto tripods at a fraction of the cost. They look very similar from the outside but that does not mean they are the same quality and as sturdy. I would not buy one of those before trying it out to see if it would be suitable for my needs.

    Sorry to hijack the thread. But has anyone got one of these tripods?

    [ame=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Giotto-GTMT-9340B-Section-Aluminium/dp/B001AZ77Q4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1242131373&sr=8-2]Giotto GTMT 9340B - 4 Section Pro Aluminium travel: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo[/ame]

    It works out at $101.12, i know it's one of the cheaper Giotto tripods, but it's all i can afford right now.

    Regards,
    Jamie.
