Gitzo GT1830 Series 1 Basalt 3-Section Tripod Leg Set, Maximum Height 66.14", Supports 15.4 lbs


About Gitzo GT1830

The Gitzo Series 1 Basalt 3-Section Tripod features the 6X carbon fiber tube, made of a unique structure of 6 crossed layers that maximizes rigidity, vibration absorption and lightweight performance. 6X tube has a high density structure made of top quality ultra-thin carbon fibers (7mm or 0.007 mm).

Built-in Anti Leg Rotation is now a feature of the whole carbon fiber range. Mountaineer tripods have been further improved with features and details that increase performance, versatility and quality.

Gitzo GT1830 Features

  • Ground Level Set: 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: Remove column and fix the disk directly to the upper casting using the column hook.
  • G-Lock: is the 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. It provides a "gravity lock" effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Leg Ends: All tripods and monopods in Series 1 & above are provided with removable rubber feet. This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes.

Questions about this item:

Gwen p  I don't plan to put heavy lens on this tri pod but want one that I can do macro flower photogaphy and get low to the ground. i'm a small person so can't handle a heavy tripod. What about this one?
DAVID D  I returned the tripod as it would not support a 500mm lens that I had just purchased. I thought it would but when I recieved it I found that it would not support it well enough. That said the tripod was light and would have served me well with smaller lens. The service from Adorama was great by the way. David
