About this item

• A good ratio of compact folded length to extended open height, makes the Traveler the ideal tripod to carry with you around the world. Gitzo's unique patented 180-degree folding mechanism, accommodates the head inside the folded tripod legs, and makes this the smallest folded tripod for its open size and number of sections. • Matching this compactness with the sturdiness of lightweight carbon fiber, and good speed in setup makes the Traveler the ultimate in tripods. Traveler tripods, now feature a new upper disc in a safe lock material that cuts vibrations, and improves the grip between tripod and head. • The upper disc can also be fixed directly to the tripod top casting, thus eliminating the center column. This new feature is called "Ground Level Set", and allows for low shooting positions and further weight savings. Traveler tripods come with a convenient anti-dust bag for storage and packing. • The Traveler is the most compact carbon fiber tripod in the world. When opened, it is as tall as a standard Gitzo tripod, but thanks to its ground-breaking 180-degree folding mechanism, it is 25% shorter than standard when folded. It is an excellent choice for compact digital cameras and DSLRs, or even for lightweight camcorders. • When used with an SLR or DSLR, the Traveler is ideal for 135mm lens, and can be used with lenses up to 200mm. Series 1 offers an excellent maximum load capacity with good torsional rigidity at a very low weight. A Series 1 tripod is the ideal solution for photographers on the move, or where space and weight are key factors.

Key Features

  • Ground Level Set: This feature 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.
  • ALR - 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 leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
  • 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.
  • 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.
