The Gitzo GT1544T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Tripod combines compactness and light weight with strength and stability to support up to 17.6 lb. It reaches a maximum height of 55.9" and a minimum height of 13.5". When the center column is removed, and the optional GS1320D adapter disc is used, the tripod can reach just 8.7". 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 6x carbon fiber for structural strength and rigidity as it absorbs vibration. 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 17.6 lb maximum, the locking mechanism increases in strength.

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's 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.
Ballast 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 allows you to quickly open the tripod. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.

        Easy to configure and fold back up into a small bag. Can fit into carry-on for travel, very light weight, yet sturdy and steady. Bought it for travel, but after using it, my old tripod has to go.

              Comments about Gitzo GT1544T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Tripod:

              Incredible build, design and functions. Light enough to be carried on long hikes and especially fits easily into the approved stand-size carry-on luggage, which is the must for travelling abroad. The Gitzo 2541 that I have, and still keep, can't fit into the approved carry-on luggage, and also longer when folded, therefore harder and more awkward to carry around towns and hikes, and also 1/2lbs heavier. The weight might not be obvious, but the folded lenght is about 1 foot longer than the 1544T. Use with the Markin Q3, when folded, it is like one piece without the added length of the ball head. Price with rebate is reasonable for a tripod with this quality. Without the rebate, it would be hard for me to justify the purchase when I already have the 2541 tripod. A must for anyone who wants a smaller/shorter and lighter but still 95% capable compared to the 2541.

              GT1541T replacement

                    I chose this over the 1542T for the shorter center column which will fold smaller with the ball head attached. It makes no sense the shorter center column, less material should cost more.

                    Coming from a Sirui T-025x this is a significant upgrade in terms of functionality, much bigger surface area and much improved stability. The increased weight and folded length are completely worth it. If I had seen them side by side I would have chosen with Gitzo without a heartbeat.

                    Four stars as it is over priced, even with the rebate.

                      I have a larger tripod (RRS 24L) and use this one to travel. I do wish it had the ability like the GT1542 to remove the center column and go lower but besides that it is a great tripod.

                        I bought this tripod for travel abroad. It neatly fits in my suite case. The reason I chose GT1544T over GT1542T is GT1544T has shorter center column so that small ball head can be fit between the legs when it's folded. I am 5.6 ft tall and I don't have to extend center column fully to the maximum hight when I shoot from my eye level. I used it with DSLR and Fuji range finder medium format camera without problem.

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