The Gitzo Series 2 Traveler Carbon Fiber Tripod with Series 2 Traveler Center Ball Head is a 4-section compact and lightweight carbon fiber tripod with an Arca-type compatible hybrid ball head. Weighing 4.2 lb, the Series 2 Traveler can hold up to 15.4 lb. The legs fold up 180° around the center column and head, making the tripod's folded length only 16.9" long. It has a minimum working height of 13.8", and when fully extended it reaches 60.6" high. G-lock leg locks add to the stability and rigidity by actually strengthening the tripod as more weight is added to it.

When you are shooting low angle or macro photography, the center column can be inverted or removed to get your camera closer to where it needs to be. At the bottom of the center column is a ballast hook, so you can hang a bag or weight to lower the tripod's center of gravity, thereby adding stability.

Included with the tripod is the Series 2 Traveler Center Ball Head, which features an updated D-Profile quick-release system that accepts both Gitzo C-profile plates and Arca-type compatible plates. This QR system allows the plate to be snapped into the head from above, a faster alternative to sliding in the dovetail plate from the side.

Rapid Center Column
The center-column locking collar above the tripod chassis makes it easy to adjust the column quickly. A grooved design prevents rotation of the column and improves system stability.
Anti Leg Rotation
A redesigned Anti Leg Rotation system means the tripod can be opened 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.
Removable Rubber Feet
The tripod features removable rubber feet. This allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes
Gitzo 6x Carbon Fiber
Gitzo 6x carbon fiber guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity, and vibration absorption properties.
