The Gitzo GT2540LLVL Series 2 Carbon Fiber Leveling Tripod uses 6x carbon fiber material for its leg construction. This improved tubing is stronger, lighter and as resistant as its 12 layer predecessor. Carbon 6X is manufactured using a complex, 3D process weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes.
This Leveling tripod has a ball joint-mounted center column designed to let you get your camera perfectly level simply by adjusting the column inclination, instead of having to set each leg individually. An adjustment of 15° in any direction is possible using the leveling feature.
The GT2540LVL is a remarkably rigid 4 leg-section tripod that offers eye-level shooting, and is capable of holding most camcorders, 35mm or medium format gear and even most lighter field 4x5 cameras.
