Gitzo GT1542T Features

  • Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties.
  • Despite the claims of other manufactures, the performance of this multilayer design is unique and inimitable thanks to the advanced aerospace production technology and the exclusive inner structure.
  • It is the highest density tube 100% made of top quality ultra thin (7µm) carbonfibers (a 28mm tube contains 1.500.000 carbon fibers).
  • Groud level set: This new feature allows you to remove the centre column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground.
  • G-Lock is the new Gitzo 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.
  • The centre 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 centre column for improved stability.
  • The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or lowlevel macro work.
  • The built-in accessory hook 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.
  • Gitzo has introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each legat the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.

Travel Me Some World

I took a long time to figure out this purchase. I did a boatload of research and read a lot of blogs to come up with this purchase. For my needs, this set of legs was the best balance of weight, load capacity, and cost. I have a six week long photo trip planned for the second quarter of 2012. I wanted to graduate from my Slik CF714 which served me honorably but was getting a bit too large for convenient handling. This Gitzo was perfectly sized for my needs.

I wanted to graduate from my Slik CF714 which served me honorably but was getting a bit too large for convenient handling. This Gitzo was perfectly sized for my needs. Although extremely hard to explain without a photo, the only thing I would encourage potential buyers to think about when considering this set of legs is the unique way Gitzo locks the angle of the legs. It is a spring loaded system which required two hands to operate/adjust rather than the one handed need for the 4-5 other tripod legs I own.

Perfect Travel Tripod (Almost)

By

I have several tripods (Gitzo, Manfrotto, and Induro), but I needed a truly lightweight and compact tripod that could bear the weight of my D700 and 5-pound lens and be easy to carry in luggage or in a small back pack. After seeing some strong recommendations for this tripod in the blogs or webcasts of several professional photographers that I admire, I made the investment when this model was offered at a big discount. Even on sale, this is a relatively expensive tripod, but it has proven to be worth the investment. Pros are : 1. At 2.2 pounds and only 16 inches when compacted, it is the perfect size and weight when traveling on aircraft, hiking or back packing; 2. Carrying capacity of 15 pounds is adequate for most of what I do with a tripod; 3. Surprising maximum extended height of 58"; 4. Very stable, despite its slender leg sections and light weight; 5. High build-quality. There are two minor Cons: 1. Non-reversable center column is too long for very low work; 2. 4-section legs. Overall, this is a real winner and was perfect for my purposes.

Great tripod, extremely impressed.

I was hoping for the best and I was not disappointed. I love the way it folds down to under 17 inches. It's light and will fit nicely into my smaller piece of luggage. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Serious hiker

As a hiking enthusiast who loves photography, I wanted a lightweight and compact tripod to carry through our National Parks. I'm happy to say that this does not weigh down my backpack and fits very nicely into my checked suitcase during travel. I made the jump to a professional tripod for a family vacation to Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point in UT. The weight hook comes in handy to add stability on windy days. Easy to open and fold back up with solid construction. I'm very happy with this tripod.

Get what you pay for!!!

Great Tripod! I bought this for a trip to the Grand Canyon and beyond. On the way back out one of my walking poles bit the dust (pun intended), and I opened this up - tied the legs at the bottom and kept walking. It did great for that too and is no worse for ware, still a solid tripod.

nick g  Carol, thanks so much for your help with my tripod question!
Shopper  Has anyone tried putting a head other than the Gitzo Magnesium Center Ball Head for Series 1 Tripods on this, and if so, were there any issues? Can the head be easily removed? Thanks for taking the time to reply!
YIN L  I use the Markins Q-Ball Q3 Traveler with this tripod and do not have any issues. The diameter of the ballhead matches perfectly with the base of the tripod. The ballhead can easily be removed with unscrewing the ballhead from the base.
