  • Series 2 tripods cope with most loading requirements and offer easy portability. They have good torsional rigidity and will take an SLR with lens up to 300mm, semi-pro DV camcorder or spotting scope.
  • The 4-section version of this design saves 9cm on the folded length of the 3-section version, and is 1cm longer when extended.
  • The Upper Disc now stays attached to the Ground Level Set locking collar. Turning this releases the centre column and the Disc can then be replaced in the casting for ground level operation.
  • The centre column has an anti-rotation groove with a spring-loaded hook at the bottom from which to hang a stabilising weight. This can be removed to allow the column to be inverted for macro or ground-level shooting.
  • Large leg angle selectors click automatically into place, and are easy to grip allowing three different angles to be set.
  • Carbon eXact tubing, developed fom Gitzo’s famed 6X type, uses different size filaments depending on the diameter of the tube. The result of this is that tube diameters can be made larger for the given section to improve stiffness: for example the thinnest section on the GT1542 model is now 22.5% larger than its predecessor. GT2542 tube diameters: 29, 25.3, 21.7, 18.2mm.
  • The rubber feet can be removed, for replacement with spikes or cup feet.
  • Supplied in a recyclable textile drawstring anti dust bag.
  • Recommended carrying bag for GT2542 with typical head is the GC3101
