Gitzo GK2545T overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy a lightweight, stable, and smooth support system with this GT2545T Series 2 Traveler Carbon Fiber Tripod with Center Ball Head Kit from Gitzo. The setup offers a 4 lb 4-section tripod system with an Arca-type compatible ball head, a load capacity of 26 lb, and a height range of 13 to 65.2". Also, thanks to a reverse-leg design, the addition of the ball head does not add to the folded length of 17.5".

  • GIGT2545T Traveler Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod

    The Gitzo GIGT2545T Traveler Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a compact support system with legs that fold around the center column and optional head. These reverse-folding legs contribute to the tripod's folded length of just 17.5". It extends to 60.8" high and can hold up to 26 lb worth of gear. With the included short center column installed, the tripod can get down to 8.7" for macro or low-angle shooting.

    The tripod employs Carbon eXact tubing for added strength and stiffness compared to the Carbon 6X tubes. Traveler G-lock is a pared-down version of Gitzo's G-lock, specifically designed for the Traveler tripods to reduce overall size. These Series 2 legs will accept a variety of interchangeable feet and come with removable rubber feet. A shoulder strap is included for easy carrying.

  • GH1382QD Series 1 Center Ball Head

    The Gitzo GH1382QD Series 1 Center Ball Head is an Arca-type compatible head that is an ideal match for Traveler Series 2 and Mountaineer Series 0 and 1 tripods. It stands 4.4" high, holds up to 31 lb, and weighs 1.1 lb. The head has a separate lock for the 360° panning and another to control the movement of the ball. A tungsten disulfide coating on the ball helps keep the ball movement smooth and minimizes stick-slip. A screw-knob lock tightens down on the included quick-release plate and a bubble level helps you maintain straight horizons in your images. To allow for precise adjustments, a friction control dial is integrated into the large locking knob.

Gitzo GK2545T reviews

GT2545T Series 2 Traveler Carbon Fiber Tripod with Center Ball Head is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! Fantastic Build! I use this as my main travel tripod for Nature/Wildlife photography. I needed something heavy enough to handle a D810 with 400-600mm lenses. While the specs say it can handle 26 pounds, I really think 30-35 pounds is more likely. Build quality is the best I have ever experienced in 30 years, and every single part is replaceable. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the fact that for some reason GITZO didn't include a simple hook on the bottom of the center tube. I sometimes use that to hang additional weight to stabilize the set up in extremely windy conditions. Maybe GITZO has a replaceable part for this???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gizto GK2545T-82QD Very expensive but once you use it you understand the thought that went into the design and the quality of its' build may just about justify the cost. I chose the larger series 2 traveler judging that the extra .7 inch and .8 lbs would be worth the extra stability over the series 1. One very minor issue is that it is designed for a right-handed person in that the toggles to adjust the angle of the legs push to the right which is not natural for a left hander. Alas such is the life of a southpaw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent tripod kit. Superb ball-head. I've recently added the Gitzo GK 2545T-82QD to my Gitzo tripod collection (series 3, 4, and 5 Systematics). Used correctly and within it's limitations, this kit should serve you well for many years to come. The ball-heads' friction control works very well. Gitzo quality through and through. If you order accessories for this kit, such as a center-column hook, the correct part number is Gitzo D104214. Do not order the G2020 hook, as this part does NOT fit the GT-2545T. The G2020 fits only the older Traveller series 2 columns. The GC-2202T bag is well constructed, and beautifully designed and finished. Well worth the asking price. I would also recommend that you get the spirit level which fastens to the center-column,,, that part is identified as GLEVEL2. This spirit level will help you level the tripod for accurate horizons with your videos and pano's. I'm not crazy about the feet (I prefer rubber-capped spikes), but these are OK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable and incredibly stable, but where's the hang hook? I purchased the head and tripod separately, legs first. At the time I purchased the legs, I wasn't completely sold on gitzo's new ballheads, figured I could keep using my RRS BH-30 - a mistake, the tripod cannot fold to its most compact form with the RRS head mounted. I wouldn't recommend getting these legs without the GH1382QD head, they really are meant to be used together. And the head that comes with this kit is definitely worth using. Smooth, stable, with useful friction adjustment. It handles my 70-200mm and 100-400mm zooms noticeably better than the BH-30 (unsurprising given the extra 10mm of ball diameter relative to the BH-30). As for the clamp, well, it's a screw type release, so slightly slower to use than the RRS lever release clamps I used prior. I wouldn't say I prefer it to the RRS clamp, but it doesn't feel inferior, either - gets the job done and works with my RRS plates after removing the retention screw. Worth mentioning that while the gitzo clamp can be removed, the bottom of the clamp is shaped differently than my RRS clamp - without additional custom hardware (that doesn't exist - yet), the RRS clamp and gitzo head are not compatible. The legs are very close to what I was looking for. Very stable, the difference in maximum height stability between these legs and my late-model series 1 mountaineer is significant. The new leg locks are more compact than the outgoing locks, which allowed gitzo to use longer carbon tubes - relative to the outgoing model, the new legs offer a greater maximum height for the same folded length. They also take fewer rotations to lock/unlock, and are partially sealed from the elements when locked (water/dust can get into the lock itself from the bottom of the leg lock, but O-rings block entry from the top). Cons: no hang hook at the bottom of the center column, what gives? I pulled the hook from my old mountaineer, gitzo part # D0703.04 if you want your own. Only two locking leg positions, could really use a third.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest! GITZO GT2545T Series 2 Traveler Tripod Kit The new GITZO GT2545T Series 2 Traveler Tripod with Center Ball Head is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It is beautifully made. It is easy to set up and take down quickly, making it great for landscape photography. ( I wouldn't shoot without it.) It will support 22 lbs. , which is amazing considering how compact it is when folded. Get the really nice GC 2202T Padded Tripod Bag and you're all set for any application. Also, the included GITZO GH1382QD center ball head complements the tripod perfectly. You can't go wrong with GITZO products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from you get what you pay for Purchased for wildlife and landscape photography. The minute I took it out of the box I knew why Gitzo tripods are consistently used by the pros. The build quality is second to none. Height was perfect! At 5'8 I can even use without the center column extended which will maximize stability. I have only used the tripod a handful of times but it will be my go to everyday and travel unit without a doubt. The adage you get what you pay for is so true with Gitzo products. Don't hesitate you won't be dissapointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, folds small, Strong for its weight. I’ve packed this tripod on Multi day canoe camping trips on rivers and day hikes in the mountains and in canyons. It is light, compact, and sturdy for its weight. I’ve used it with lenses up to the Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6 on a D500 Body.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautifully Engineered But Offensive Odor This really would have been my ideal tripod for travel photography - except for one thing - it's odor. Gitzo uses something in the construction of the tripod that has a very distinct odor. Sort of a mix between an industrial solvent/lubricant and a perfume. In any case, for my sensitive nose, I found it to be offensive and not something that I would want strapped to my camera backpack or transferred to my hands and my expensive camera gear. I presently own another Gitzo tripod, a Slik tripod and have owned Velbon and MePhoto tripods in the past. None of these exhibited any obvious odors - so it was real disappointment that the GK2545 had this odd issue - at least for me.
