Gitzo developed the revolutionary Levelling tripod for photographers who need fast set up and levelling accuracy. Inside the Levelling tripod’s upper casting is a special free-rotating ball, similar to those normally used in our ball heads. The center column passes through this ball and can both be moved up and down, and be inclined in any direction at any angle up to 15°. The inclination and vertical movements are completely independent. This patented system is extremely useful for panoramic, outdoor and wild life photographers or for bird watching because the Levelling system allows the camera or scope to be set perfectly horizontal easily and quickly when working on uneven ground.
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: Remove column and fix the disk directly to the upper casting using the column hook. No tools needed.
G-Lock is the new 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. 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 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.
The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.
The tripod upper disc is called “Power Disc”. It 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.
Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties. Despite the claims of other manufactures, the performance of this multilayer design is unique and inimitable thanks to the advanced aerospace production technology and the exclusive inner structure. It is the highest density tube 100% made of top quality ultra thin (7μm) carbon fibers (a 28mm tube contains 1,500,000 carbon fibers).
