Gitzo GT1544T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber 4-Section Tripod

You Pay: $699.00
Product Highlights
  • Extremely Lightweight - 2.16 lb
  • Maximum Height of 55.91"
  • Folds to Only 16.7"
  • G-Lock Leg Locks for Rigidity
  • Reversible/Removable Center Column
  • 17.64 lb Load Capacity

The Gitzo GT1544T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber 4-Section Tripod combines compactness and light weight with strength and stability to support up to 17.64 lb with absolute rigidity. The Traveler series tripod features the stability and size of a Mountaineer Series 1 tripod, to serve the high-end photographer, bird watcher, or videographer who needs an easily portable support with no compromise in performance.

The GT1544T is composed of advanced 6x carbon fiber, a material that guarantees structural strength and flexion rigidity as it absorbs vibration. This last function is crucial for keeping long telephoto lenses, video lenses, and spotting scopes absolutely stable, and so the 2.16-lb tripod is the perfect support for long-distance nature shots for which the smallest shake means the difference between capturing a bird or other flighty creature centered within the frame and missing the shot entirely.

The redesigned G-Lock leg-locking mechanism also contributes to the tripod's rigidity, achieving a 20% increase over previous-generation technology. Moreover, as the tripod's load approaches its 17.64 lb maximum, the locking mechanism actually increases in strength. With G-Lock, leg locking is stronger, safer, and faster.

G-Lock
The locking mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a 'gravity lock' effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
Rapid Center Column
The center-column locking collar above the tripod chassis makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. A grooved design prevents rotation of the column and improves system stability
Reversible Center Column
The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.
Counterweight Hook
This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with long, heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
Anti Leg Rotation
A redesigned Anti Leg Rotation system means the 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.
Gitzo 6x Carbon Fiber
Gitzo 6x guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity, and great vibration absorption properties. The performance of this multilayer design is unique and inimitable thanks to the advanced aerospace production technology and the exclusive inner structure. It is the highest-density tube that's 100% made of top-quality ultra-thin (7μm) carbon fibers – a 28mm tube contains 1.5 million carbon fibers

            Best fit for mirrorless camera.
            It is impressively light and steady, and the G-lock operation is quick and easy. Now I can bring my tripod anytime.
