The 4-section Gitzo GT0545T is the first Series 0 Traveler tripod. The use of Carbon eXact carbon fibre tubes enables a narrower top tube without a very narrow smallest tube, maintaining surprising rigidity. With improved G-leg locks this results in a compact tripod weighing under 1kg, with a useful working height and a huge 10kg load capacity.
The GT0545T has 4 section legs which are have 2 angle settings. At the lower setting the supplied short centre column allows a very low shooting postion. This is quickly attached by unscrewing the top platform of the main column, sliding it down, inserting the short column and re-attaching the platform.
The Carbon eXact tubing uses High Modulus carbon fibre, resulting in a thinner but stiffer tube wall. This allows larger section tubes to be used on all models (e.g. the bottom tube of the 5-section tripod was 8mm, and is now 11.2mm diameter). So the Travellers are extremely rigid as a result. The GT0545T tubes diameters are 21.7, 18.2, 14.7 and 11.2mm.
Larger Gitzo tripods have had G-Locks for some time. The strength of this lock design actually increases with downward pressure. The Travellers have an adapted version of this which is more compact, and which has improved grip and reduced the folded length, and increased working heights compared to their predecessors.
