Gitzo Mountaineer GT0542 Overview

The GT0542 Mountaineer Series 0 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fiber in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The GT0542 has a load capacity of 26.5 lb, extends to a maximum height of 53.9", and folds down to 18.9" for transport.

The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 5.5". Its four-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles.

question

Once the center column is removed can I install the Gitzo G-2020 ballast hook in its place?
Asked by: Michael W.
We are not sure what you are asking. If the column is removed, there is no place to attach the head, let alone a ballast hook. So that we may best assist you, please email us at [email protected].

Can this tripod hold a 75mm video bowl?

Can this tripod hold a 75mm video bowl?
Asked by: Richard
We're afraid not. For Gitzo tripods that can be adapter to use a 75mm Ball Tripod you need to look at the Systematic Series 3, such as B&H # GIGT3543LSUS, with the adapter that is B&H # GIGS3321V75. Tripod - https://bhpho.to/2xTeoSZ 75mm Adapter - https://bhpho.to/2G78CBq
