Overview
  • 1Description

The Gitzo GK1380VQR Vintage Tripod with Ball Head is a visual throwback to Gitzo's decades as a French-manufactured brand (the firm moved to Italy early in the 21st century), with distinctions upon the fittings, finish, and case that veteran photographers and novices alike can appreciate.  It can be safely stated that the current Italian makers know a thing or two about panache, and the Vintage Series 1 tripod certainly catches the eye.  Outside of fashion, this is a modern Series 1 Gitzo capable of fantastic support for your SLR camera of any size as well as telephoto lenses up to 135mm units.

Back in the day, Gitzo was known for compact tripods with a 2-stage center column, which they've slowly done away with over the years.  The Vintage returns that beloved function, and also adds a classic-type Series 1 ball head with their most modern quick-release plate.

Beyond the tripod itself, they've manufactured a special case which reflects Gitzo's functionality and attention to detail.  Inspired by old school golf bags and endowed with classic Gitzo logos, the European-manufactured case is made of tough nylon with Italian 'leatherette' detailing.  It's a practical looker.
