About the Gitzo GK2520FT

The GK2520FT Safari kit is extremely lightweight and compact. This kit is the ultimate solution for birdwatchers looking for a regular size tripod that combines lightweight, compactness and transportability.

Gitzo GK2520FT Features

  • Ground level set allows you to remove the centre 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
  • G-Lock 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
  • The centre column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. Series 2 is built with an anti-rotation grooved centre column for improved stability
  • The rapid reversible column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work
  • This built-in hook 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 centre column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions
  • The Ocean-Lock is a special version of G-Lock of which it maintains 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 Anti Leg Rotation 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
  • Stainless steel spikes for tripods and monopod, especially useful for soft underground outdoors
  • Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties. It is the highest density tube 100% made of top quality ultra thin (7um) carbon fibers (a 28mm tube contains 1.500.000 carbon fibers)
