Gitzo GT0542 overview

  • 1Description

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 17.6 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.

    Gitzo GT0542 reviews

    GT0542 Mountaineer Series 0 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shaves a pound or so off earlier model This is a pretty solid platform for a lightweight tripod. Height is acceptable (I'm 5'9) and stability is good. The seats for the leg posts are the heaviest part - very durable, but probably weigh as much as the rest of the tripod combined. A lighter material would not seem to compromise durability much, while making a big difference in total weight. But is isn't bad, even if it wouldn't put a smile on an ultralight backpacker's face. But a pound is a pound, and this is much better than my carbon fiber monopod for overall utility at a comparable weight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from high quality stuff I bought this alone with 3542T to take advantage of rebate program. The build quality is very high. The leg seems thinner than traveler 1544 I had, but quality is higher with the same load rating. I will use this as traveler 1544 replacement which I lose it in Zion. and GT3542 for long exposure and beach stuff. I recommend it for the price and quality.
