Comments about Gitzo GT-2532S 6X Systematic 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

My wife has the old series which is light,strong, and sturdy. I am surprised this version is heavier and a bit bigger. The ballhead platform is the most different from the old series. It is big and very beefy. It is as strong as (if not stronger) than the old 3-series.

I use it mostly for landscape and macro photography. It is very sturdy and pictures are "sharp". I really like the ballhead platform which offers excellent stability.

I wish it was a bit smaller and lighter. Overall, it is an excellent tripod. Highly recommended.

Comments about Gitzo GT-2532S 6X Systematic 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

I use it mostly for landscape photography requiring long shutter speed. My wife has the old version GT-2531. I thought the new 2532 would be very similar to the old one in size and weight. Well, big surprise. The 2532 is a bit heavier and bigger than the old one. It is like the 3-series. I wish the 2532 was lighter and smaller. But the good thing is that it is almost stronger than the old 3-series. The platform for the ballhead is huge and beefy. I am sure it ensures tack sharp pictures.

Perfect for person between 65 to 70 inch

    Comments about Gitzo GT-2532S 6X Systematic 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

    With plethora of tripods available I have always bought Gitzo carbon tripods. For my height this is perfect. I extend all 3 sections and with the tripod head and camera it comes right to my eye level, no fussing around adjusting the length of one section. And the last section is thick enough that there is no sagging when the camera with the lens attached are placed provided it is below the maximum allowed weight. This tripod is a perfect balance of weight, height and sturdiness for anyone between 65 and 70 inches tall, if it is used on a level ground.

          Comments about Gitzo GT-2532S 6X Systematic 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

          I travel through Europe quite a lot in the late summer and early fall. I do carry a tripod wherever I go as I never know exactly when I will need it. In Europe there is no getting around walking a lot. This one is too big to fit into a small bag or backpack(which could be a negative for some) so I do hand carry it but the extra stability I get from it outweighs the smaller "travel" tripods that may not be quite as stable. My other tripod definitely worked well(not a Gitzo) but one of the legs started slipping not to mention it was not carbon fiber so it weighed a bit more...it never killed me but i with my latest trip and this new Gitzo carbon fiber I did notice a difference in the weight. I needed a tripod that would raise to the right height for me(I am almost 6'3") and be plenty sturdy and one that would fit into my check on luggage nicely. This tripod fit the bill for all of those criteria for me. It has worked great for me at home as well getting projects done for clients. I highly recommend this tripod as a midsize lightweight, extremely versatile option.

              This is my first Gitzo and my first sturdy tripod. I'm still at the amateur stage of my photography so considering the price I paid for this I was a little anxious at the thought of going too far over my budget. Then I got it out and put my ball head on top. I took my first shot and not only was the picture sharp, it was crystal clear. The longest lens I have is the canon 100-400mm and it works well on these legs. I'm very pleased.

                This is my second Gitzo tripod. When looking for a second lighter tripod, I didn't even bother checking out the other brands. I love both of them. I also have a Gitzo monopod.
