The GT2542LS Systematic Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long) with GH2780 Center Ball Head from Gitzo is a B&H Kit consisting of a set of tripod legs - some of the most compact in the Systematic range - and a Gitzo Center Ball Head.

The legs feature improved carbon fiber tubing which is stronger, lighter, and just as resistant as its 12-layer predecessor, with good torsional rigidity. It features a flat center disk that can be interchanged for center columns, leveling bases and other components. Carbon "6X" is manufactured using a complex, 3D process, weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes. This tripod can operate at a minimum height of just 7.5", a maximum height of 62.9", and has a load capacity of 30.8 lb.

The included Gitzo GH2780 Center Ball Head is designed to match Gitzo's high performance Systematic tripods including the GT2542LS. Not only does the head guarantee a high maximum support load, but it also offers many other improved features, such as: smoothness, minimized drift angle, low gravity center, greater tilt angles, compactness, ergonomics and enhanced safety.

  • Gitzo GT2542LS Systematic Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long)

    The long Gitzo GT2542LS Systematic Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is part of the smallest series of tripods in the Systematic range. The improved carbon fiber tubing is stronger, lighter, and it's as resistant as its 12-layer predecessor, with good torsional rigidity. It features a flat center disk that can be interchanged for center columns, leveling bases and other components. Carbon "6X" is manufactured using a complex, 3D process, weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes. This tripod can operate at a minimum height of just 3.7" (without a center column), a maximum height of 59.1", and has a load capacity of 55.1 lb.

    Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) System
    The Anti Leg Rotation system makes it quick and easy to open and close the tripod. Simply turn all of the locking rings at once and the whole leg can be pulled out in seconds.
    G-Lock Design
    The G-Lock mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a "gravity lock" effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
    1mm Gitzo 6X Carbon Fiber Tube
    Gitzo was able to develop a six-crossed multilayer carbon fiber 30% lighter than the previous 1.5mm generation that features the same exceptional performance of stability and vibration absorption and unbeatable quality.
    Performance Design
    Performance design allows the legs to be set individually at 24°, 55° and 90° to cover every angle you want to shoot.
    Removable Leg Tips
    Removable self-locking rubber leg tips are interchangeable with Gitzo universal accessories such as the big foot, long spike, etc.

  • Gitzo GH2780 Center Ballhead - Supports 30.8 lbs (14kg)

    The Gitzo GH2780 Center Ballhead is a lightweight magnesium ballhead that incorporates many innovative and state-of-the-art features. It is designed to match the range of high performance tripods available from Gitzo. Not only does it guarantee a high maximum support load, but it also offers many other improved features, such as: smoothness, minimized drift angle, low gravity center, greater tilt angles, compactness, ergonomics and safety.

    Exceptionally smooth rotation, positive locking and rapid camera mounting are all features common to the Gitzo designed range of ballheads. The graduated base, with independent locking facilities permits perfect panoramic photography. The design of the panoramic base permits the ballhead to be used for table top or near ground level work with or without the use of a tripod.

    Series 2
    Recommended for use with Series 2 tripods.
    Friction Control
    The separate friction control allows you to fine tune the freedom of movement of the head. This allows you to control the head slower and more precise, or faster and looser.
    Safe Lock Disc
    The Safe Lock Disc top plate, composed of a techno-polymer compound, makes it possible to control the locking torque without prematurely stopping camera rotation and ensuring that the camera is safely and effectively locked in place.
    Spring Lock
    The SADL (Spring Assisted Double Lock) combines two locking systems in one. It maximizes both locking power and ball smoothness. A high friction metal guarantees a high efficiency lock, and the PTFE bushing - controlled by a pre loaded spring - maximizes smoothness and control.
    Bubble Ball
    The Bubble Ball is produced as a completely round hollow sphere, with an ultra thin wall, for an incredible weight reduction. The Bubble Ball also features a perfected PTFE treatment that further reduces the surface micro roughness.
    Extended Tilt Range
    This head offers independent pan and tilt locks with 360° pan movement, +100/-18° tilt movement, and a graduated engraved panoramic base.
    Supplied with a 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw.
