Gitzo GT1541T Overview

  • 1Description

The Gitzo GT1541T Traveler 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs uses a unique patented 180° folding mechanism that accommodates a head inside the folded tripod legs, which makes this the smallest folded tripod for its open size and number of sections. In addition, this tripod uses advanced "Carbon 6X" carbon fiber material for its leg construction. This improved tubing is stronger, lighter than and as resistant as its 12 layer predecessor. Carbon "6X" is manufactured using a complex, 3-D process weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes.

The GT1541T is ideal for use with a pro DSLR with a 135mm lens (up to a 200mm maximum), MiniDV camcorders, or spotting scopes. This Series 1 model is the ideal solution for photographers on the move or when space and weight are key factors.

Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) System
The Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) 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.
Ground-Level Set
This feature allows you to remove the center column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground. The upper disk is removed from the center column and inserted directly into the upper casting using the column hook. No tools required.
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.
Hook
Redesigned built-in, spring-loaded retractable hook on the bottom of the center column provides a place to hang a stabilizing counterweight such as camera, sand or water bags. It has also been improved with a self locking system that avoids accidental loss.
Removable Leg Tips
Removable rubber leg tips are interchangeable with Gitzo universal accessories such as the big foot, long spike, etc. They have also been improved with a self locking system that avoids accidental loss.
Rapid Column
Grooved Rapid center column, with locking collar, for improved stability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travels well ! I have used this tripod around the world because it is small but stable. Better to have a smaller lighter tripod than no tripod at all. Even used it with all three legs extended and together as a monopod for a 500mm. Gitzo is the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I only want to buy ONE!! This Gitzo has saved me money! I wanted a tripod to travel with US and EU; wanted strong, wanted light. I've heard it said: everybody buys a second tripod - or wants/needs to upgrade the lesser model they now have. I'm cheap - I decided I only wanted to buy one rather than starting less and later upgrading: Gitzo was the name that kept rising to the top of the list. This unit is plenty strong for my D7000, plenty light and plenty short when collapsed. Does it do what I need? Uh...GITZO! The frosting?... Gitzo giftcard rebate! I so love it when things work out. Thanks B&H!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Tripod for Travel This tripod is exactly what I was looking for. Very lighweight, stiff, and folds down small enough to fit in my equipment case. Very easy to set up and breakdown.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tripod! I needed a lightweight tripod for travelling and hiking - this worked out perfectly. I did some research and decided to get a Markins Q3 Traveller with their quick release plate. This ballhead was designed for the Gitzo Traveller. What an outstanding combination. I own a Nikon DS3 with a few lenses including the 70-200mm 2.8 so I needed something fairly strong. The entire setup is light so I wouldn't trust it in high wind, but other than that it works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my recent trip. With carry on luggage space at a premium, I was able to pack this tripod in the bottom of my carry on and not risk losing it to damage or theft in my checked luggage. Extremely light weight I hardly noticed the extra weight in my bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - definitely recommend! Product is very sturdy, lightweight, and well built. This is the best tripod I've ever owned.
