The Giottos Vitruvian VGRN tripod kits are an exciting new range of lightweight, compact tripods matched with versatile heads. The VGRN tripods feature Giottos “reverse technology” legs, which are capable of folding upwards through 180 degrees making them more compact and easier to transport. The main tripod castings are made from a forged aluminium alloy for strength and the quick action twist leg locks require only 1/8 turn to lock and unlock. The maximum operating height is 165cm and can hold up to 6KG. The VGRN8255 features a built in monopod and reversible centre column to improve low level photography and all VGRN tripods are supplied with a carry bag. The MH5400-652 ball head supplied features an on/off control and pan lock, a quick release plate and two spirit levels for landscape and portrait use.
