The GT2542 Mountaineer Series 2 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 GT2542 has a load capacity of 39.7 lb, extends to a maximum height of 65.7", and folds down to 22" for transport.

The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 5.9". Its four-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring 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 angles. A ballast hook on the center column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.

      Comments about Gitzo GT2542 Mountaineer Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I needed a lightweight weight tripod. I use this tripod with a gimbal head and a 200-400mm lens. It gives a solid support even with the weight of the gimbal head, lens, and camera body. I'm sure I'll get years of use from this product.
