Gitzo GK1542-82QD Mountaineer Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Center Ball Head

Gitzo GK1542-82QD Mountaineer Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Center Ball Head

The GK1542-82QD Mountaineer Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fiber in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The tripod has a load capacity of 22 lb, extends to a maximum height of 67.4", and folds down to 25.6" for storage and transport.

The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 10.4". Its 4-section legs are secured with G-lock Ultra twist locks, which feature internal O-rings to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg positions. A ballast hook on the bottom of the center column allows the user to add additional weight, increasing the tripod's stability.

The included Gitzo Center Ball Head is an Arca-type compatible head that features two separate locks; one for 360° panning and another to control the movement of the ball. A tungsten disulfide coating on the ball helps keep the ball movement smooth and minimizes stick-slip. A screw-knob lock tightens down on the included quick release plate and a bubble level helps you maintain straight horizons in your images. A friction control dial has also been integrated into the large locking knob to allow for more precise adjustments.
