How do Giottos Silk Road YTL compares with Manfrotto/Bogen 190 series? (and Sirui?)
9 months ago

I’m in the process of buying a new tripod, and buy comparing specs I narrowed my choices to:

  • Giottos YTL-9353
  • Manfrotto (Bogen in US) 190XPROB
  • (or maybe, for is lightweight, Sirui T-2005X even if it has not the horizontal arm feature)

For the specs the advantage goes clearly to Giottos, for its weight, high, features and price, but I couldn’t find a single serious test on the YTL series, and I have not found these Giottos tripods on any physical store near me to test it, so I’m concern on how well it behaves in terms of sturdiness and dampening.

I test a Manfrotto 190 XPROB in a store and even if it has not the same dampening quality as its big brother 055 it seems to be good enough for my needs. If Giottos YTL-9353 behaves at least this well, I’ll order it.

So, can anyone tell me how these models (or series) compare to each other?

(any comparison with Sirui T-2005X will also be appreciated)

Thanks
