Three Reasons to Travel With a Gitzo Tripod

  By Ryley Smith

 

Finding the right travel tripod can be tricky. You don’t want to buy a cheap one that will break and need replacing over and over, but you also want to make sure you are investing in a tripod that gives you everything you need. Well, search no more because there are three reasons why the Gitzo GT2545T Traveler Series 2 Tripod is the perfect travel tripod. 

Lightweight and Portable

When travelling you want a tripod that is easy to take with you. The Gitzo Traveler Series 2 is exactly that! Thanks to its carbon fibre design, the tripod weighs only 1.33 kg (2.9 lbs), making it surprisingly lightweight for carrying on trips. It also has Gitzo’s 180° leg folding system, which allows the legs to reverse-fold around the center column, making it only 44.5 cm (17.5 in) when packed. Along with a shoulder strap for comfortable carrying, it is the perfect travel tripod!

Excellent Build Quality

The carbon fibre build that makes the Gitzo Traveler Series 2 so light is also what makes it super strong and durable. Using Carbon eXact gives the legs superior strength and stiffness, while the Traveler G-lock, a travel-size version of Gitzo’s G-lock, ensures the overall security of the tripod. It also has specially-designed rubber feet for grip, but are easily interchangeable with Gitzo’s optional feet, such as larger feet or spikes, so you can be set up for shooting success!

Versatile

The Gitzo Traveler Series 2 has a 1/4″ and 3/8″ top attachment, so you can easily attach heads or other accessories for your different shooting needs. With an extending height of 154.5 cm (5 ft) that can hold up to 12 kg (26.5 lbs) of gear, you can set up your biggest lenses or smallest kits however you want to create your shot! Also included is a short center column that gets down to 22 cm (8.7 in) for low-angle or macro shots. From setting up a long shot to photograph wildlife, to getting close to capturing the flowers below, the Gitzo Traveler Series 2 is ready to go!
