The Giotto's Silk Road YTL Series features a new, totally unique Y-shaped centre column, bringing a totally new dimension to tripod design -meaning legs can be stowed in a much more compact way, allowing a space saving of 30%.

Every year, TIPA editors vote for the best photo & imaging products introduced to the market during the previous 12 months. TIPA editors take into account innovation, the use of leading-edge technology, design and ergonomics, ease-of-use, as well as price/performance ratio.

'The TIPA Design Award for the new Silk Road series is a real coup - not only recognising the expertise of the design team, but confirming Giotto's tripods as one of the leading brands in the photographic market.'
