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

You Pay: $574.90
Product Highlights
  • Load Capacity: 17.6 lb
  • Max Height: 58.7"
  • Min Height: 8.7"
  • Folded Length: 16.7"
  • Leg Sections: 4
  • Weight: 2.2 lb
  • G-Lock Leg Locks for Rigidity
  • Reversible/Removable Center Column

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:

    This is a very nice tripod. I was coming from a Slik U212, an original TiltAll, and a Manfrotto 190xProB, so nothing stellar. But the Gitzo 1542T is strong and built well. It's very easy to use, and I like the leg locks. Two things that bother me a bit are 1) that the head platform unscrews a bit too easily (because of the ground level feature), and 2) the leg angle unlocks appear to be plastic (although probably a very strong resin). The carbon legs scratch a bit easily, but I was shooing in a cactus garden, so I suppose that comes with the territory. Overall, an excellent tripod.

      Light weight, compact, easy to unfold, steady. What else can one ask for? It is not comparable to heavier tripods in terms of steadiness, but it can hold a D810 and 70-200 2.8G without problem. The center column can be reversed for low level shots. I am 5'6", and I need to extend the center column about half way up to shoot without having to bend down too much. I wish the legs can be adjusted to more than 2 angles, but overall the tripod is functional and useful for backing and long hikes.

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

          I did a large amount of research before choosing this tripod. I narrowed it down to this tripod, GT2542 Mountaineering Tripod, and the GT2542S Systematic Tripod. My two main concerns were weight and stability. The mountaineering tripod would give me a slight height advantage and the systematic tripod would offer the most stability, however, these tripods would weigh 3.7 and 3.8 pounds respectively [without the head] or around 5 pounds with the head. This traveler tripod is 2.2 pounds without the head and around 3 with the head.I found myself rarely taking my previous tripod out of the hotel room when I travel because of how heavy [5 pounds] it is. I have hiked around all day with my the 5 pound tripod before and it gets heavy especially when you have other gear with you. If you have a car and weight is not an issue then I would recommend the Mountaineering or Systematic tripod, however, if you're traveling internationally, you are most likely going to be walking a lot. I have yet to travel with this tripod yet, but the extra 2 pounds I shaved off is going to make me more willing to carry it with me.I did go to B&H and looked at the tripod in the store. B&H's aisle for tripod has a laminate flooring and is not idle for testing the tripod out; the tripod did slide around. This made me research tripods further before going back to picking this tripod out. When I did receive the tripod in the mail and tried it at home and outside, the tripod didn't slide around and was pretty stable. I would like the tripod to be even lighter to compensate for the weight of the head. With the head added on, it did feel a bit heavier than I would like it to be for a travel tripod especially for the price being paid for it.Another thing I have to pick at is the folded height of the tripod. When folded, it becomes a little over 20 inches with the head attached. Unless you have a big backpack, you wouldn't be able to fit this into it. That's something I'm disappointed about. It is compact, but not as compact as I would like it to be.Carbon fiber material reduces vibrations compared to aluminum and other metals. The tripod is pretty stable and has a hook on the end of the center column for you to hang a weight or bag there to provide for extra stability. Although the traveler tripod doesn't provide as much stability compared to the other tripods, it is pretty stable for what it's worth. I was able to put my Canon 5D Mk III on top with a 24-70 lens and feel confident that the tripod won't flip over.The tripod's locks seem a little flimsy and annoying if you had to clean it out. It is definitely not element proof and seems like dirt and water can easily seep in.I would recommend the tripod, but I wouldn't consider it a perfect traveler tripod.

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

          I researched this tripod for over a month because I was hesitant about the price even though all reviews kept pointing to the Gitzo. I thought my Manfrotto 055XPRO legs were the best of the best but I needed a compact tripod for airline carry on. And I wanted to continue using my Manfrotto Magnesium Hydrostatic Ballhead, I didn't want to invest in another ballhead. I was leary the weight difference wouldn't be significant enough for the price. Answer? Why have I been lugging around a 5 pound tripod for 6 years? Why have I been using a tripod with 3 complicated clip locks, yet I never realized those locks were complicated until I discovered the Gitzo twist legs. I made sure I used the Gitzo before writing this review. EVERY-OUNCE-COUNTS! The legs are still able to flip and compact with my Manfrotto head attached and the whole kit is still MUCH lighter and far more compact than my previous set up. Extremely lightweight, very compact, easy to set up, very durable and sturdy. My first test photos were at night at the beach and it withstood the wind with legs in the water waves crashing on it and all images tact sharp. Buy it, you won't regret it. You get what you pay for.

          This tripod is very compact and light weight. I bought it for an upcoming China trip. I have been using a Gitzo 1001 aluminum tripod and this carbon tripod feels lighter and more sturdy. The legs open and pulls out smoothly. No complaints except the price!

          This item is terrific for a short old lady, and I suspect for many others! I just couldn't carry my old tripod around any more. I have yet to test the limits as far as how close to the ground it can be used, but then again I can't get that close anymore, either.

          This Tripod is about weight savings. The bonus is you get a sturdy tripod for the light weight. Normally it's a compromise but I'm happy it in this case it was a win win.

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 bought this tripod for traveling, it is working out great. Sturdy, solid yet light weight and short enough to strap to the side of my camera backpack. The legs open easily and quickly. I would buy it again.

                      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.

                        Landscape photographer switching to lightweight Fuji system. More than meets my needs for weight and stability. Legs extend in seconds and it converts to ground level with no tools in about a minute.

                          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!
