Gitzo GT2540F Series 2 Safari 6x Carbon Fiber 4 Section Tripod, Max Height 60", Supports 26 lbs.


About Gitzo GT2540F

GT2540F Safari tripod has an excellent maximum load capacity and great torsion rigidity. GT2540F tripod is the ideal solution: a solid tripod without sacrificing weight.

Gitzo GT2540F Features

  • Ground level set allows you to remove the centre 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 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 rapid reversible column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work
  • The built-in hook 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 centre column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions
  • The tripod upper disc ''Power Disc'' is made of machined solid aluminum and it now features two locking screws, one to lock the head, the other to safely lock the disc onto the column. The ''Power Disc'' gives a rock solid connection of the whole system for additional safety and stability
  • The Ocean-Lock is a special version of Gitzo G-Lock of which it maintains the same outstanding locking performances. Thanks to two special seals derived form the automation industry, it minimizes the amount of water and debris that may enter tubes and locking mechanisms
  • The 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
  • Stainless steel spikes for tripods and monopod, especially useful for soft underground outdoors
  • Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties. It is the highest density tube 100% made of top quality ultra thin (7um) carbon fibers (a 28mm tube contains 1.500.000 carbon fibers)

Great Tripod ever


from El Cerrito  -  Photo Enthusiast

Prefect with my ARCA-SWISS P0. This tripod is much more stable than my previous Manfrotto 055CXPRO4 when I use it in the windy night for long time exposure, and while my 5D3+17-40L is attched vertically with the L quick release. Just firm without even a pixel move! The best solution for travel and daily use, prefect combination of portability and stability. Well, I didn't test its water residence to much, but at the same price of #2 series, why don't buy this one with water and dust residence? By the way, I used a Lowepro DSLR Video Pack 250 AW bag, and this tripod is perfectly to fit in the tripod hold of my bad.


Great tripod! I would buy again!
