Gitzo GC5210 Reviews

GC5210 Tripod Shoulder Strap is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from well-designed and well-executed I tried to fashion my own tripod-carrying strap out of shoulder straps I had laying about, and velcro pieces. It didn't work very well. This Gitzo strap, on the other hand, is very well thought out. I love the fact that you never have to remove either end from the tripod -- you just unclip the leg bundling strap, and then you unfold and use the tripod as normal, with the strap still attached. So you won't lay the strap aside and leave it behind when you pack up -- it stays conveniently attached to your tripod. Re-cinching the legs is a simple matter of inserting a single tongue into its clip -- and off you go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GC5210 Tripod Shoulder Strap by Gitzo Every other day I hike 10 to 15 miles round trip through the mountains and valleys of the Pacific Northwest. The kit I carry is a digital camera, 3 lenses and my Gitzo 6X tripod. The camera and lenses are in a pack, but the tripod has been switched from shoulder to shoulder until I got the Gitzo strap. It's a very durable professional quality product, easy to install and fits a wide range of tripods. The use of the strap has freed up both hands for scrambling up and down hillsides and taken away the aches in my shoulders and neck. I highly recommend it for those who travel the back country wilds on day excursions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent aid for outdoor photographers I purchased this strap to complement my Gitzo 3541LS systematic tripod. I wanted a simple way to improve portability while hiking trails with my tripod and this product delivers. A couple of nitpicks means that I couldn't quite justify a 5 star rating, but it is an easy 4.5. Installation was easy - the strap attaches to the tripod via upper and lower loops. The top loop is meant to fit around the center column, but since my systematic pod has no column, I instead looped mine around the top of one of the legs and secured it under the hook on the underside of the platform. The loop itself is a braided nylon shoelace so I'm a little nervous about long term durability, but so far so good. The bottom velcro loop is much more robust and fits around the bottom of the uppermost leg section, just above the G-Lock. Its underside is rubberized and when pulled tightly it is fairly secure. There has been a slight tendency for this strap to ride up the leg, so to prevent this I have installed a leg warmer (LensCoat) right above the lower strap. When the tripod is collapsed and closed, a sturdy strap and pinch buckle holds the three legs together so they don't flop around or droop when carrying the pod. The underside of the strap is a grippy fabric with firm padding and ridges to prevent slippage. The strap is broad like a golf bag strap to distribute the weight across the shoulder. Balance is good with a ballhead (mine is a BH-55) but don't expect to carry it with a camera attached. There is a small zippered accessory pouch large enough to hold some business cards or a couple of flash cards. I store my cable release in it since I use it only when I'm using my tripod. Aside from the seemingly light duty upper loop, the strap is made from high quality, durable nylon and neoprene. Plastic clips and buckles appear well made. All in all I am happy with this tripod strap. It does what it is intended to do with mimimal bulk and fuss. The strap keeps my hands free for shooting and my shoulders comfortable! Summary Pros - simple, compact, improves tripod portability Cons - questionable durability of upper attachment, lower attachment tends to slide (but this is fixable)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best design but certainly useful I have a Gitzo 1 series tripod which I used to carry in hand during day trips. My fingers started hurting enough after a couple of hours, prompting me to buy this strap. Pros This strap is definitely useful in that you can carry it around your shoulders or across. This way, you hardly feel there is a tripod you are lugging around the whole day. The material of construction is definitely very good. There is even a small pocket in which you can carry credit cards (if you fear your pockets getting picked), a small cell phone (definitely not the iphone), keys, etc. Lastly, the trap is designed such that you can pretty much use it with ANY tripod, not necessarily Gitzo. Cons The strap with velcro which goes around the center shaft keeps slipping up. This is very irritating. I am sure they could have designed this part better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gitzo Tripod Shoulder Strap Doesn't rest on the shoulder. Wants to slide off your shoulder making it very cumbersome

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice strap but... doesn't work great on the gitzo traveler: GT1541T

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not well balanced with camera attached Very well made. This strap is built to attach to the tripod's vertical column. My 3140 systematic doesn't have one so I made due by attaching to the top of one of the legs. It works well for carrying the tripod without a ball head and camera but with the camera attached the balance is not right and it doesn't sit well on the shoulder. The adjustment isn't adequate under this situation. I'll have to get a center column and see if things improve although I doubt it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shoulder padding is pretty cushy Good for hiking, especially over elevation changes and rugged terrain when freeing up hands really helps balance, mobility. Padding is comfy. Quick release makes it pretty fast to set up tripod and then hook strap back up when finished shooting. Wish the strap length was adjustable but wrapping it in various ways controls length pretty easily.
