Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber 4-Section Tripod w/ G-Lock

You Pay: $574.90
Product Highlights
  • Extremely Lightweight - 2.2 lb
  • Maximum Height of 58.7"
  • Folds to Only 16.7"
  • G-Lock Leg Locks for Rigidity
  • Reversible/Removable Center Column
  • 15.4 lb Load Capacity

The Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber 4-Section Tripod w/ G-Lock combines compactness and light weight with strength and stability to support up to 15.4 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 GT1542T 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 2.2 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 15.4 lb maximum, the locking mechanism actually increases in strength. With G-Lock, leg locking is stronger, safer, and faster.

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
Ground Level Set
The center column is removable so that you can shoot closer to the ground. Without using any tools, you can remove the center column and secure the upper disc directly to the upper casting using the center column hook
Reversible Center Column
For even lower-level shooting or for macro work, the center column is also reversible for easy inversion
Counterweight Hook
The built-in hook at the bottom of the center column allows you to hang a weight (such as a sandbag or full camera bag) in order to provide additional stability when you're operating with heavy loads, 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. With a single twist of your wrist, you can loosen all three twist locks on a 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

    I recently moved from a Point-and-Shoot to a Nikon D7000. My cheap (<$100) tripod was clearly inadequate, and so I bought this as an upgrade. Web research, especially Thom Hogan's article on tripods and ball-heads, convinced me not to get a middle-of-the-line setup which I would be wanting to replace down the line with something better, so I decided to go for top-of-the-line. I was torn between a travel tripod and something more sturdy (e.g., Gitzo GT2540); as I usually bike to where I will be taking pictures and carry it while I'm hiking, I decided to go for a travel tripod, knowing that this might mean buying a second less-portable/more-sturdy tripod down the line. The Gitzo Traveler had received the best on-line reviews, so I decided on that.The earlier version, (GT1541T) was still available, but the GT1542T has a slightly longer center column, G-locks on the bottom legs, and better reinforced hinge points. It was also substantially cheaper than the first version on [@] (other places showed it as discontinued). So, I went with the GT1542T. I am using it with a Markins Q3T ball head with lever quick release and the Markins D7000 camera plate. The largest lens I regularly use is the Nikkor 4.5-5.6G 70-300mm VR. The weight of head, camera and lens is 13.28 oz + 24.3oz + 26.3 oz = 63.88 oz (4 lbs), and this setup, rated conservatively by Gitzo to 282 oz (17.64 lbs), has no trouble with that. Weight of tripod and head = 35.2 oz + 13.28 oz = 48.48 oz (3 lbs). I also have used it with a Sigma 50-150 (69.5 oz). While it was not as sturdy as I'm sure a heavier tripod would be, I didn't have any noticeable trouble with vibration.I am an enthusiast, and use the setup mostly for birding pictures but also do some landscape and general nature pictures. The build quality on the tripod is phenomenal. It's a gorgeous piece of equipment. The weight and size make it easy to carry on my bike, hiking, and maneuvering to get the best shot. The G-lock legs are easy to quickly loosen and tighten and I haven't seen any slippage with them.With the legs fully extended but the center column fully down, the viewfinder of my D7000 is at 52 1/4", which is too short for me. I'm 5'6", and for it to be most comfortable for me, I need to raise the center column up about 8", putting the viewfinder at 60". With the center column fully extended, the viewfinder is at 65" which would too high for me, but when I angle the camera up to look into the trees, which I often do, that lowers the viewfinder to a height that is comfortable. So, although I probably would have done fine with the shorter center column, I do use it at full length. I realize raising the center column sacrifices stability, but I decided it was worth the trade-off in size and weight and I haven't noticed any stability issues with my gear.The legs reverse-fold nicely around the Markins Q3T, but the longer center column means that either the ball head sticks out past the legs or the other end of the center column sticks out past the leg-attachment joints. I prefer to leave the other end of the center column sticking out past the leg-attachment joints so that the ball head is protected by the legs. Even so, the tripod is still amazingly portable. Folded up with the ball head, it is 20 ½ inches in length.The center column can be fully removed and the ball head mounted directly on the tripod, for weight savings, improved stability, or to use the ground-set feature (the ability to get closer to the ground with the legs at the widest setting). The center column can also be reversed and the camera mounted below to the point where the top of the camera is touching the ground.Although I don't have experience with other high-end tripod setups, I am very happy with mine. (I am also very happy with the Markins Q3T: it was easy to adjust the tension so that it allows me to adjust the camera while staying stable for the shot.)

    After two uses the stopper on the end of one leg fell off and was lost. Pretty poor workmanship. Now the leg will actually get stuck inside the larger piece when folded. To make it worse, I emailed Gitzo three times and all went unreturned. I called B&H and they gave me a phone number for them. Four phone messages have gone unreturned and two more emails also. It appears I have no chance to get this fixed as they won't communicate with me [...] I hate paying premium price for a average product and below average customer service.

    Comments about Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber 4-Section Tripod w/ G-Lock:

    B&H is one of the few websites with all the specs you need to decide what tripod you want. Lightweight, compact and sturdy. What elde could you want? I coupled this with a gitzo ballhead able to hold 15lbs. It held my 1DX and 70-200mm f2 f2.8 is ii usm without issue or sag.

      I have had this model for three years and loved it. So when I decided to increase my capability I didn't hesitate to get one more GT1542T. Its very light and its very strong for its weight. I've packed it in my suitcase on every trip where I wanted to travel light. Easy to set up. Great price for the capability.

        This is my third Gitzo tripod. It together with the series 1 Gitzo head is about 1.5 pounds lighter and several inches shorter than my Gitzo Mountaineer series 2 which I use with the off center Gitzo ball head when weight and size are not major considerations. I've had the latter for about 20 years now and have used it on some pretty rough trips. Still no problems. My third tripod is a series one metal tripod that I got about 30 years ago. My wife uses it quite a bit. Also no problems.

          I never thought I needed a tripod until I got one. This is the best purchase to elevate my photography. Great tripod, very sturdy, easy to use, and lightweight. I don't mind carrying it, which I thought I would. If I don't like a spot I'm shooting, I just pick up the tripod, camera attached, and walk and move. Done. It has really changed the type of photos I shoot, so many options with a tripod. Really glad I finally made the purchase. Holds my Nikon D600 and 80-200mm f/2.8D very easily as well as other lenses.

            I bought 4 different tripods in the past to support my 5d3. None of the previous provide the same overall quality, stability, portability as this GT1542T. I loved this lightweight tripod for my hiking and traveling. I wish I had tried this one before. Otherwise I would not waste money on other brands.

                I wanted a lighter tripod for my Fujifilm X-T1, something that matched the size of this outstanding mirrorless camera and the Fuji lenses I wanted to mount on it, and that I could comfortably travel with. It is perfect, unbelievably compact and light, steady as needed, and easy to set up. The counterweight is perfect for hanging a bag or other weight to increase stability. With the Fujifilm iOS app, can remotely pop the shutter without an ounce of shake. This is a perfectly matched tripod to today's light mirrorless cameras.

                    This tripod weighs only 1.7 lb & its fold length is less than 17 inches. I feel very comfortable to carry this equipment to travel to any destination. Over the past 8 years, I had been carrying a tripod which weighs 3.5 lbs & measures 21.75 inches & a tripod head weighs 2 lbs. when I traveled outside the U.S. On an average day, I walked 6 to 9 hours a day w/ my camera, lenses, a tripod & head plus other tools. As a result, I lost interest in taking pictures & videos. This Gitzo tripod I currently bought allows me a brand new start!

                      Don't waste money buying cheap, buy the the best and save money long run.
                      Tripod is light, stable and the build quality is top notch. Paired with RRS BH40

                        I have owned it for almost 2 years now and not once did I ever second guess my purchase. It is light, it folds small, it is dependable. I hike a lot and shed 4 lbs going to this tripod. It has been flawless with a Markins head with my 5D III and 70-200 2.8IS...rock solid. I have had it in rivers and streams. I have used to find my way across creeks and get me steep inclines. The engineering is awesome. Worth every penny and as always this store rocks.

                        Comments about Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber 4-Section Tripod w/ G-Lock:

                        I looked at a lot of tripod legs, from Manfrotto, Induro, Velbon, and Gitzo. I thought Induro was a very good value, but even their smallest carbon tripods are not under 20 inches, so they were out of the running for a travelling tripod.

                        There have been 3 versions of this Gitzo Series 1 Traveler and this is the middle one. It has two locking positions on the legs, one normal, and one flayed out low to the ground. The only difference between this and the newer GT1554T is that the center column was shortened on the newer model. Thus, it allows the legs to fold over the tripod head and could be a few inches shorter with the head on. Without the head, they are basically the same height, as the center column isn't longer than the legs folded up and back with the center column extended all the way. It is super flexible in arrangement, you can reverse the center column, or even buy a kit that gets rid of it all-together. Gitzo also sells a level that goes around the center column disc.

                        Since the GT1442T is a couple hundred dollars cheaper, I took this one and live with the extra 2-3 inches in total height with my tripod head on. It's still very very short and can fit in a carry-on rollerbag.

                        I looked at a lot of tripod heads and settled on the Acratech GP-S with the normal screw-locking quick release plate. Fits perfectly on this or even the newer GT1544T within the legs. Very stable and the base diameter of the GP-S is just the right size for the top of the center column disc area. Finally I got a RRS L-Bracket Camera Plate, but the Kirk one is great too. Acratech makes camera plates and L-Brackets, as well as Nodal Rails as well. I did consider the GP-SS model, which has a smaller quick release, but it's not necessary, and 60mm is more standard.

                        The GT1542T isn't cheap, but it's so easy to use, extremely light, and it's pretty stable considering how small and light it is. It's a million times better than my 25 year old Manfrotto of course. The only weakness that may be an issue in the future is the click stops for the leg positions. I think it's plastic and maybe break down sometime far away. I wish it were metal.

                          I bought RRS BH-30 to pair with this tripod, it support my Canon 5D3 and 70-200/2.8 IS II, 17-40/F4 very good.

                          this tripod surprised me how light weight it is and I am very happy on my decision to buy this tripod.

                            I have a Nikon D3s with heavy glass and although I wouldn't leave my camera unattended on this tripod, it really helped me out traveling to Europe and having a good tripod to work with without hauling my heavier one. It's very light and easy to fit in an equipment bag. I love that I can go high with this tripod. I'm 5'11'' and it will even go higher than I need.

                                    It is extremely lightweight and transportable. I just used it with a Gimbal head and Nikon 300 f2.8 with absolute stability.I use it for landscape, macro and sport.
                                    The only negative is that the turning gnurls to lengthen/shorten the legs are a little stiff.
                                    Pluses:Lightweight, very sturdy;compact and very easy to take with you where ever you go.
