Features of Gitzo Safari Collection Ser.2 Tripod Kit w/ 2-Way Fluid Head:

  • 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.
  • 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.
