About Gitzo GT1544T

The Gitzo GT1544T Series 1 Traveler Tripod is a strong, stable yet extremely compact and lightweight carbon fibre tripod, designed to balance uncompromising professional support with ease of transport for travelling photographers. Gitzo's innovative Traveler design is more compact than a standard tripod structure because the 4-section legs turn 180deg. so that, when folded, they completely enclose the center column locking mechanism and the column itself. Despite its short folded length, the GT1544T opens to a practical working height for everyday use.

The GT1544T can be used with any head. For those who require extreme compactness, a Gitzo Traveler Series 1 ball head is recommended, since it too fits within the tripod's own folded dimensions and enveloped by the legs. The GT1544T legs is made from the same high-performance rigid and lightweight Gitzo 6X carbon fibre tubing as is used on Gitzo Mountaineer and top-of-the-range Systematic tripods, with G-Lock leg locking rings for faster set-up and positioning and magnesium castings to help keep weight to an absolute minimum.

Nice tripod. Worth the price.

I deliberated for a long time over what tripod to get that would be compact enough for travel and hiking but still hold the weight of a 5D mk3 and various lenses. I only use tripods for a few kinds of tasks, but when they're needed they're needed, and its important to have one that won't be a bother lugging around given how little I do use it. I knew I wanted the twist lock legs from experience, so I eventually settled between a few different Gitzo models and a Benro Travel Angel as my budget choice. I think the Benro would be perfect for most people, but the decreased overall circumference of the Gitzo and the minor weight differences really make me glad I went with it. I think if it were any bigger or heavier I wouldn't be inclined to carry it with me, which would defeat the purpose of having it. I bought a Markins Q3t head for mine, which is designed for Gitzo travelers. The head is great and the tripod still folds up nice and compact. I like the 1544T over the 1542T due to the fact that the tripod ends up having a shorter overall length when closed. If you want a larger, more substantial head (which may be overkill on a travel tripod anyways) go for the 1542T as a larger head won't prevent the tripod from compacting nicely.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Charley G  Can the center column be completely removed so you can shoot without it, say for a maximum low level shot?
DANIEL M  The center column is reversible. When I need to get the camera lower, I simply reverse the column, holding the camera upside down, and adjust the legs to get the necessary height. So, yes, the column is removable, but the actual screw mount for the tripod head is on the column, so reversing it is the only way to attach the actual camera. Its actually not a bad setup though, and is a quick thing to change around. The biggest inconvenience is that your camera is upside down so accessing menus on it is tricky in tight spots.
