Gitzo 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.

Top notch

By Aaron
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-27

Fantastic tripod, probably the best money can buy in this category. Incredibly stable, there is something in the design that makes these so stable, which I cannot really point to. I compared it to older mid range CF tripod, at a similar size, and the Gitzo was significantly more stable. The head is well made, and locks like a vault; there are some odd things with its design though, like no locking for the knobs (you can unscrew them completely), or the somewhat flimsy friction knob. The claims about the special ball coating doesn't really translate to smooth rolling. Overall it's a very solid, and tough ball head that can probably withstand lots of abuse; a professional head I suppose.

Not true, with 8.7 min working height.

stated Minimum Working Height 8.7 / 22 cm not correct, given the ball head on center column, it's at least 17.5 off the ground, assume lowest setting on leg. Item is great, but not for me, which needed for low-level position, 8.7 would be great. However, haven't figure out how yet, and calling B&H not getting response.

Amazing rigidity for the size and weight. Only issue is the cost.

I was looking for a sturdy tripod to mount my camera with some of my larger lenses and the Gitzo GT2545T has filled the requirements very well.

Excellent quality

I purchased this tripod hoping it was light enough for travel but robust enough for all around use. Both are true, extends high enough, stable, and packs small. Excellent, excellent tripod!

Great Design!

Overall I'm very happy with this tripod. It's very solid and sturdy with great fit and finish. It's quite compact for the height and durability. The twist locks work great and leg sections are easily disassembled for cleaning. My couple minor gripes: when using the short center column the tripod does not close as compactly with the legs reversed, I understand why this happens with the leg widths, but just wish it wasn't that way. The ball head locks super tight and I really like the separate pan and ball dials, and that there is friction control on ball head; however the friction control seems to go from very loose to very right quite easily. I think it will just take some getting used to, especially since I shoot a lot in the dark at night. The benefits, for me, outweigh the couple small issues and I expect to be loving this tripod for many years to come.

the best one you can get!

Does the weight of 2.95lb includes the weight of the head? Thanks!

The weight of the tripod including the head is 3.95 pounds. I did not remove the head to see what the weight is of the tripod alone. This is a good tripod with a good head.

Which L-Bracket is compatable for a Nikon D750?
Asked by: Steve
There are several manufacturers making L-Brackets for the D750, but none that design them for the camera with the added grip. Check B&H for Kirk, Sunwayfoto, and Sirui. You can still use these grips in that instance, but it does change the geometry of how to mount the grip on the tripod for vertical shots.

Has anyone used this with A Mamiyd RB67? Will this travel tripod be able to handle the weight of a medium format camera?
Asked by: James
I just gave my Pentax 645z medium format and Pentax HD 28-45 f/4.5 lens (significant amount of glass) on my Gitzo Series 2 Traveler GT2545T a workout. The seven lbs gear (plus filters, strap, battery) functioned seamlessly on the strong yet lightweight tripod. I did not extend the legs or riser beyond halfway to full extension out of concern for stability (shooting 15-second long exposures), so nothing to report about performance at the higher sticks extension.
