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.
