The Gitzo SSeries 2 GK2500LVLQR 6X Carbon Fiber Leveling Tripod Kit is a state-of-the-art tripod for location and outdoor applications. Extremely lightweight but stable, this tripod consists of carbon-fiber legs and a very compact, fluid head with features unique for a head this size. Despite a negligible weight of only 6.59 lbs, this tripod can be extended to 67" high and handle a DSLR with up to a 300mm lens, or a medium-sized spotting scope for bird-watching.
The leveling tripod keeps the camera perfectly level, and the low-profile quick-release fluid head, with separate tilt and pan actions and adjustable counterbalance system, provides precise control over camera movement. Thanks to a new compound developed by Gitzo with the strength of magnesium, but with 30% less weight, this lightweight head maintains very good vibration damping qualities. The matte black body and reflection-free surfaces offer good camouflage outside. Gitzo's ground-level set allows shooting as low as 6.3" off the ground.
This is a premium tripod that combines very light weight, solid support, sophisticated features and all the functionality you need, in a beautifully designed package.
