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 Tripod:

    I've used Gitzo level three tripod with a RRS BH-55 ball head for about ten years. I'm getting too old to lug around my Nikon gear, so I am switching to a Fuji X-T1 system and needed a lightweight tripod. This fits the bill perfectly and matched with a RRS BH-30 gives me a kit I can carry.

      Comments about Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I bought this to replace my GT1541, which is an amazing tripod in it's own right, but the smaller GT1542T will pack better for travel. I use the (older but still great) GH1780, low profile, center ball head. I actually prefer the longer center column on the 1542T vs. the short column on the 1544T because i use the GH1780: it doesn't fit between the legs like the traveler ball heads do. But the low profile nature of the GH1780 is preferable in my opinion. I shoot with a Nikon D810 w/o battery grip. My favorite lenses are the: Sigma 20mm f/1.4 ART, Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8, and Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 VR. The GT1542T and GH1780 support those combos very well. I use my camera bag as ballast, hung from the built-in spring loaded hook, on the bottom of the center column. I am very pleased with the GT1542T, despite it being an older design.

      Comments about Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I've had this tripod for about a year and a half now and it is in pretty bad shape.The stopper at the end of one leg fell off during a shoot, since I was in the forest, I was unable to find the stopper. Without this stopper dirt, sand, and water can freely get into my tripod leg threads. I tried purchasing Gitzo's replacement feet, but they simply slide right off the end. They don't stay on the end of the tripod legs at all. To make matters worse, there are no threads on the inside of the leg, so I'm basically stuck with a broken and weakened tripod. This seems like a huge oversight for a $ tripod.With that being said, the tripod is light and the leg locking system is very simple to use, if the threads don't get caked with sand and debris. It's also fairly easy to clean.Ultimately the stoppers are a huge problem with this tripod and I regret purchasing this model, as there is no threads to allow me to purchase replacement stoppers.Not sure if I would ever buy another Gitzo after this experience.

            I researched for quite awhile and everything pointed to this set of travel tripod legs if you want top of the line. They are very sturdy and amazingly light. Will fit easily in carryon luggage or on the side of a small camera bag. They are not inexpensive but having another Gitzo tripod I knew the quality of this manufacturer. Stop looking and buy a set. I will use it for everything from a 70-200 to a wide angle. Great for hiking too.

              Comments about Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Tripod:

              Just used the GT1542T with an Arca-Swiss Monoball for slow shutter speed photography in Big Bend National Park and I couldn't be happier with the results.

              I shoot with a Canon 5D + 24-70mm L lens 90% of the time. The Gitzo / Arca Swiss is able to support this weight (~ 5 lbs.) from any position.

              My other tripod / head combo - a Manfrotto 055XPROB + the Manfrotto 222 hand grip style head - is great for a lighter weight camera / lens combo, but it cannot steadily support the weight of my 5D / 24-70mm in every position necessary. The 055XPROB is also too heavy and cumbersome to haul for 5-10 mile hikes.

              Great: weight and function.
              Not so great: price tag.

              Alas, you get what you pay for. I have zero regrets and 100% confidence using slow shutter speeds going forward.

                  Comments about Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Tripod:

                  I do a lot of flower photography and this tripod has been great for hiking to the flowers with a heavy DSLR and Lens and taking pictures. The tripod is sturdy, lightweight, and has a nice option for shrinking its length for packing by folding the legs backward. I own both the RRS BH-30 and Markins heads, and both heads work well on this tripod. There are a few significant limitations of the tripod. First, it is poorly designed for use without the center post, which I do often to get low to the flowers. After removing the top and bottom pieces from the center post and re-assembling them to the tripod apex in a tripod-without-center-post configuration, the whole thing is tricky to get tight, and the bottom piece has no well-defined area on the apex to register itself too. It's just hokey. The second limitation (in any configuration) is that the plate doesn't have a set screw to prevent the ball head from rotating. Larger tripods all have one, and there is room for one, but Gitzo didn't include one in the design. This is not an issue for point and shoot cameras, but a severe issue for DSLRs on this tripod. As a result, your ball head will be coming loose all the time. There's an opportunity here for RRS or Markins to solve the freely-rotating head issue from the ball head side.

                      This is an outstanding travel tripod. It also has an easy way to remove the center column for ground level shots, like flower macro. Expensive, but worth it. Don't cheap out and get an imitation....being able to remove the center column is something I've only seen with Gitzo.

                      I bought the GT1452T tripod to support a Kowa TSN-663 Spotting Scope for birding. I needed something very compact and lightweight to take along on my bike or when traveling. I am totally impressed by the build quality, ease of use, stability, and compactness/lightness of this tripod. It is quick to set up, has ample height (with angled scope) and is amazingly steady for the weight. Coupled with a Gitzo 2180 Fluid Head and mounted with the mentioned Kowa scope, the whole thing weighs only about 5 1/2 lbs. Not cheap but worth it.

                          Tripod is very light yet stiff and stable. Folds compact but there is a similar model with a shorter central column that allows it to fold around the head as well, if that matters to you (it is fine for me).

                            Exactly what I was hoping for. A perfect tripod with to travel with and to have as a backup. When carrying around a full size tripod isn't an option, this is what I want to have in my bag.

                              I am totally pleased with my new Gitzo GT1542T legs. It incorporates many features that I think are so user friendly. 1. It's ability to go low without requiring an extra purchase of a short column. 2. It's build, fit and stability. 3. The spring lever locks that allow leg angle adjustment. 4. Its compact size. 5. The $ rebate from Gitzo.To complete the unit I added a RRS ballhead and camera L plate for my Fujifilm XT1. It's a sweet unit.

                                The first tripod I ordered was the Slik SL700DX. It had awesome reviews and weighted at only 7 pounds. When it arrived, I was shocked at how bulky and heavy the tripod was. I returned it without hesitation. I than ordered the Gitzo 1542T which had a $ rebate and it was everything that I had expected. Well designed, compact and portable. I use my Canon 5D Mark III to take pictures of friends and family, but always frustrated how the pictures would turn out when asking other folks to take for us. This will be the solution to that problem. Easy to setup and easy to use. Looking forward to using it more.

                                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.

                                      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.
