Gitzo Traveler Series 1 5-Section 6X Tripod Kit w/ Quick Release Product Info
Gitzo GK1580TQR5 Series 1 Traveler Kit 5-Section 6X Tripod w/ Quick Release Head combines the compactness and lightweight of the Gitzo Traveler Tripod System with the stability and size of a regular Mountaineer Series 1 tripod. The Gitzo 5-Section Traveler Tripod Series 1 is unmatched in terms of performance and stability, and recent upgrades make this superior performance more clear than ever. The improvements to the tripod are substantial: compactness and light weight have been pushed right to the limit, while at the same time stability and torsion rigidity are amazingly increased, especially in the column locking assembly. The Gitzo Traveler 5-Section Tripod is dedicated to the high-end user seeking for a highly portable support with no compromise.
The tripod head included with the Gitzo Traveler Series 1 Tripod Kit includes a quick release adapter. This Gitzo Tripod Head combines light weight and compact size with the innovative features you'd expect from a top of the range tripod head. The ball is the revolutionary Gitzo patent pending "Bubble Ball", PTFE treated and mounted on PTFE bushings. Apart from the dramatic weight reduction achieved, this beautiful sphere guarantees an exceptionally smooth operation.
Specifications for Gitzo Series 1 Traveler Kit Five-Section Tripod:
Maximum Height (with Center Column Down):
Features of Gitzo Traveler Collection Series 1 Tripod Kit w/ Ball 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.
Leg ends - removable rubber feet allow you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes.
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.
