Gitzo GT2542L Series 2 6x Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs, 4 Section with G-Lock, Max. Height 68", Supports 26.4 lbs.


About Gitzo GT2542L

Recommended for lightweight camcorders, spotting scopes and DSLRs with 200mm lenses, up to a 300mm maximum. Excellent maximum load capacity and good torsion rigidity, available in 3- and 4-section models at standard and eye level heights.

Series 2 is the ideal solution for photographers that are looking for a solid tripod without sacrificing weight. All series 2 tripods (geared version excluded) now feature a new magnesium upper casting for a further weight reduction and a new third ultra low leg spread to take full advantage of the Ground Level Set. Series 2 tripods are also provided with the new Power Disc for a safer head lock.

Gitzo GT2542L Features

  • Anti-Rotation Leg (ALR) system makes it quick and easy to open and close the tripod. Simply turn all of the locking rings at once and the whole leg can be pulled out in seconds
  • The 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 Power Disc features two locking screws, one directly for the column and one for the head. This assures a rock solid connection of the whole system. This machined aluminum disc also includes the Safe Lock material, which cuts down on vibrations
  • Completely redesigned aluminum upper discs and bolts features a safe lock material which reduces vibrations and improves head locking. The High-grade stainless steel bolt design prevents it from dropping inside the column when adjusted and makes controlling the tread length stress-free
  • Ground-Level Set allows you to remove the center column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground
  • 1mm Gitzo 6x Carbon Fiber Tube features exceptional performance of stability and vibration absorption and unbeatable quality
  • Performance design allows the legs to be set individually at 24 deg., 55 deg. and 90 deg. to cover every angle you want to shoot
  • Redesigned built-in, self-locking, spring-loaded retractable hook on the bottom of the center column provides a place to hang a stabilizing counterweight such as camera, sand or water bags
  • Removable self-locking rubber leg tips are interchangeable with Gitzo universal accessories such as the big foot, long spike, etc
  • Grooved Rapid center column with locking collar for improved stability

Questions about this item:

spencer w  can the center column be removed and replaced with center plate?
Andrew R  This tripod features Gitzo's "Ground-Level Set", which allows you to remove the center column and reassemble the tripod head without the column in place.
Shopper  Does this tripod REALLY allow for ground level set? I have taken it apart several times and do not see anyway to remove the center column and re-attach the head directly to the tripod.
JAY G  I have removed the center column and it does really allow for ground level set. Keep in mind that you are not at ground level to the extent that your head and camera are above ground!! :-)
