Gitzo GT1542 overview

  • 1Description

The GT1542 Mountaineer Series 1 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 GT1542 has a load capacity of 22 lb, extends to a maximum height of 62.6", and folds down to 21.3" 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 5.9". 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. A ballast hook on the center column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.

    Gitzo GT1542 reviews

    GT1542 Mountaineer Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super light/ super strong i spent a ton of time researching tripods before buying this one- I matched it up with the arcatech ball and am very happy- i considered the Induro as well but wanted the best so went with Gitzo- i used it the other night in light winds and the center pulled out all the way and had no issues - of course bigger and heavier is alway more stable but I had to balance it out and decided this was the best for me and my DSLR / 70-200 or 24-70 - get one before the rebate is over !!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ground Level mech is great! I moved to M4/3 from APS-C for smaller gear and form factor. It is VERY lightweight so you will def want to take advantage of the hook when using. I really love the new ground level mechanism. So quick and easy. I am 6'2 and don't need to extend the column much if at all with an Acratech GP-S head mounted. However, extending the last leg section (to get to near eye-level w/o column) is not recommended if you're going to be in any sort of wind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Solid I almost returned the tripod once I looked at how small it was. something told me not to. I have used it on several sessions and I LOVE IT. It supports my camera with a 70-200mm easily. Awesome product and light as a feather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect height I like the GT1542 for its weight, easy setup and collapse and mostly it is the ideal height for me being 5'5".� The tripod with a ball head and the camera comes up to the perfect height at eye level.� The removable center post is a real plus for getting down low to do flower photography or insects.
