Details

The Gitzo GT2542T is a strong, stable yet extremely compact and lightweight carbon fibre tripod, designed to balance uncompromising professional support with ease of transport for travelling photographers. Gitzo’s innovative Traveler design is more compact than a standard tripod structure because the 4-section legs turn 180° so that, when folded, they completely enclose the centre column locking mechanism and the column itself. Despite its short folded length, the GT2542T opens to a practical working height for everyday use.

The Gitzo GT2542T can be used with any head. For those who require extreme compactness, a Gitzo Traveler ball head is recommended, since it too fits within the tripod’s own folded dimensions and enveloped by the legs. The GT2542T legs are made from the same high-performance rigid and lightweight Gitzo 6X carbon fibre tubing as is used on Gitzo Mountaineer and top-of-the-range Systematic tripods, with G-Lock leg locking rings for faster set-up and positioning, and magnesium castings to help keep weight to an absolute minimum.

G-Lock

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.

Rapid Column

The centre 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 centre column for improved stability.

Reversible Column

The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.

ALR

Gitzo have introduced 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.

Carbon Fibre 6X

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).
