The 4-section GT0542 Series 0 Carbon eXact carbon fibre tripod has a more compact 48cm closed length and increased working height compared to 3-section version. This makes it a little easier to fit into luggage, or attach to a compact backpack.
A good solution for anyone needing a really compact, but very strong tripod, where eye-height operation is not essential.
The latest Mountaineers feature a redesigned top casting which shaves weight without compromising rigidity.
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.
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. GT0542 tube diameters: 21.7, 18.2, 14.7, 11.2mm.
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.
Recommended carrying bag for GT0542 with typical head is the GC1101
