The Systematic Series 2 GT2542S Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo is a great choice for those looking to travel light, but still get outstanding performance. Systematic tripods are very strong and stable, yet offer excellent flexibility of use.
The Series 2 has a unique modular system that can be quickly transformed into different configurations, in as little as 15 seconds, and the same tripod can support both photographic and video equipment. Despite a negligible weight of only 3.8 lb, this tripod can be extended to 51.2" high and handle a DSLR with up to a 300mm lens, or a medium-sized spotting scope for bird-watching.
The Series 2 is constructed from 6X carbon fiber. It has an Anti Leg Rotation system (ALR), G-Lock, and brushed matte black finish for improved locking performance and minimized reflectivity. A wide selection of accessories allows you to keep growing your system according to your future needs, whether they are still life, macro, outdoor, sport or wildlife applications.
- Anti Leg Rotation
- This tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
- For a strong, fast, and safer locking mechanism, G-Lock's special design provides a 'gravity lock' effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock becomes.
- Made of 6X carbon fiber
- Leg Ends
- With removable rubber feet, the Series 2 allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet.
- A built-in accessory that allows you to hang a stabilizing weight, like a full camera bag or a sand bag, from the bottom of the tripod head plate. This is helpful when using long, heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
