Gitzo Mountaineer GT2532 Overview

The GT2532 Mountaineer Series 2 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 GT2532 has a load capacity of 48.5 lb, extends to a maximum height of 65.4", and folds down to 25.6" 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 6.3". Its three-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.

A New Gitzo Convert!

By Chas

I shoot architecture and interiors. I have been using Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 Aluminum tripod legs for years...and they have served me well. It was time to replace the Manfrotto legs and I decided instead to splurge and buy these Gitzo legs. I have had my eye on Gitzo for quite some time but held off purchasing them due to the price. I will say, now that I have these Gitzo legs, I am kicking myself for not buying these much sooner. The quality and craftsmanship are simply amazing! If you are sitting on the fence as to whether or not to buy these Gitzo legs, do yourself a 'solid' and take the plunge. These Gitzo legs are truly remarkable. I am now a very happy convert. Thank you Gitzo.

Great tripod!

This is my second Gitzo, using my first with a 100mm bowl and video head. Replacing my old heavy aluminum tripod which finally failed, I use this for real estate photography nearly every day. Happy with my purchase. Gitzos last a lifetime.

I have been a photographer for over 30 years and this is my first Gitzo, been a loyal Manfroto customer but not anymore. This is by far the lightest, compact and most ridge tripod I have even owned. Always wanted to buy one but couldn't justify the cost, boy was I wrong!

Gitzo is awesome for solid hold in all sorts of weather! I cringed at the price of the first gitzo I bought...but now I would not do without! It has gone through rain, sand, waves, dirt... you name it! Simple enough to take apart and clean if need be but built to withstand all of that with a simple rinse off in the shower and allowed to dry if you just keep the legs extended. This won't fit in your carryon bag, but I put it diagonally in my checked bag without a problem.

This is my second Gitzo purchase. My first is 15 years old and works good as new. If you want something to last, Gitzo is the brand to buy.

question

Would this work with Manfrotto 054 Magnesium Ball Head (with Q2 Quick Release)? I used 054 with Manfrotto 190XPROB, they fit well. And would like to know if 054 fits Gitzo GT2532 Mtnr Series2
Asked by: LI L.
The Gitzo GT2532 Mountaineer CF tripod has a reversible 3/8 & 1/4 threaded post for attaching most any ball head or three-way head. I have used several different tripod heads on my GT2532, depending on the need at the time. If the legs are the right size for your use, this is an excellent choice.
