My review of Giottos MT9180 tripod and MH1001 ball head.

Any trouble with it moving slightly when you tighten it up?

I was thinking of buying the same, but I read some rather poor reviews from some people. I saw one comment about them improving the quality, maybe that's the case?

People liked the legs, but weren't crazy about the ball head. Most frequent comment was that it always shifted while tightening it up. Many also said that over time, it became impossible to tighten it enough to keep it from drifting (though I think this was about their single lever model, not the one you got).

When you tighten it up, does it stay right on the mark?

Thanks.
