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.

      Comments about Gitzo Systematic Series 2 GT2542S Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I was looking for the lightest possible tripod I could use to get steady shots along with a fluid video head. After lots of research this seemed to be the best option. With the 75mm ball adapter I can fit my fluid head in and it seems to support the weight and have plenty of stability. The only downside is that the top is much wider than a standard tripod in order to accomodate the ball adapter.
