New Tripod - Gitzo G2220

Just bought a used Gitzo 2220 online. A fantastically versatile tripod, especially useful for my macro photography. The main feature is an articulating arm which can extend and be moved in all directions. Perfect for ground level photography and getting to spots where tripod legs usually get in the way.

The G2220 has been upgrated a couple of times by Gitzo with various carbon fibre models. They are not that much better and it meant that I could get the tripod for cheap.

Here is a quick review by another user which demonstrates the versatility of the tripod.
