Gitzo Safari Collection Series 1 Four Section 6X Tripod GT1542T Product Info

Gitzo Traveler Series 1 4-Section Tripod combines the compactness and light weight of the Gitzo Traveler System with the stability and size of a regular Mountaineer Series 1 tripod. Made for bird watchers using a spotting scope, the Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler Tripod is dedicated to the high-end user seeking for a highly portable support with no compromise. This Gitzo Tripod utilizes a unique leg folding system that folds the legs upside down in order to minimize the folded length during transportation. This minimizes the size and weight of the tripod, while still providing stable and vibration free performance, controlled and precise scope movements with a full size tall tripod for comfortable and long lasting observations. The legs of the Gitzo Traveler Series 1 4-Section Tripod are made 6X carbon fibre tubes constructed with a unique structure of 6 crossed layers that maximizes rigidity, vibration, absorption and lightweight performance, ideal qualities for nature photography and bird watching.

This Gitzo Traveler Series 1 Tripod features rapid-deploying legs that let you set up in as little as 15 seconds, along with the unique G-Lock system that provides a stable base whose strength actually increases when more weight is added. Following Gitzo tradition, even the smallest detail has been taken care of in order to make the Gitzo GT1542T Traveler Tripod the ultimate tool for Bird Watching.

Features of Gitzo Series 1 Traveler 4-Section 6X 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.
  • Rapid Column - The center column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation grooved center column for improved stability.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Legs built with Carbon 6X tubes
