Gitzo Safari Collection Series 1 Four Section 6X Tripod GT1540F Product Info

Safari Collection Series 1, 4 Section Tripod GT1540F offers an excellent maximum load capacity and good torsion rigidity at a reduced weight. With its 4-section legs, the Gitzo GT1540F Tripod collapses to an extremely compact size. Each leg features the special G-Lock system which ensures that the tripod becomes more rigid and stable as more weight is applied. You can deploy this Gitzo Tripod extremely quickly thanks to the Anti Leg Rotation system, which lets you open the twist locks on all legs at the same time and pull them out immediately. The Gitzo Series 1 Safari Tripod is the ideal solution when space and weight are key factors.

The Gitzo Safari Series 1 Tripod is part of a Gitzo collection specifically dedicated to birdwatchers and outdoor photographers. This premium tripod is completely resistant to natural elements, and was developed for the professional who is looking for ultra stable and precise solutions. The Gitzo Series 1 Safari 4-Section Tripod has special waterproof leg locks, to withstand to extreme conditions, blocking water, mud or sand.

Features of Gitzo 4-Section Safari Series 1 Tripod:

  • Ground Level Set - allows you to remove the center column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground. Uses existing components: the upper disc with reversible 1/4" - 3/8" bolt and the column hook assembly: Remove column and fix the disk directly to the upper casting using the column hook. No tools needed.
  • G-Lock leg locking system. The locking mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a gravity lock effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
  • Reversible Column - The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.
  • Hook - This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with long, heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
  • Power Disc upper tripod disk, made of machined solid aluminum, features two locking screws, one to lock the head, the other to safely lock the disc onto the column. The Power Disc gives a rock solid connection of the whole system for additional safety and stability.
  • Ocean-Lock - a special version of Gitzo G-Lock, maintaining the same outstanding locking performances. Thanks to two special seals derived form the automation industry, it minimizes the amount of water and debris that may enter tubes and locking mechanisms. The Ocean-Lock is not 100% waterproof, however it dramatically enhances the capacity of the tripod to withstand extreme environments.
  • Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) system means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
