Gitzo GT2542S Overview

  • 1Description

The Gitzo GT2542S Systematic Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is part of the smallest series of tripods in the Systematic range. The improved carbon fiber tubing is stronger, lighter, and it's as resistant as its 12-layer predecessor, with good torsional rigidity. It features a flat center disk that can be interchanged for center columns, leveling bases and other components. Carbon "6X" is manufactured using a complex, 3D process, weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes. This tripod can operate at a minimum height of just 3.6" (without a center column), a maximum height of 51.2", and has a load capacity of 55.1 lb.

Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) System
The Anti Leg Rotation 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.
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.
Removable Leg Tips
Removable self-locking rubber leg tips are interchangeable with Gitzo universal accessories such as the big foot, long spike, etc.

Gitzo GT2542S Reviews

GT2542S Systematic Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid tripod I was looking for the lightest possible tripod I could use to get steady shots along with a fluid video head. After lots of research this seemed to be the best option. With the 75mm ball adapter I can fit my fluid head in and it seems to support the weight and have plenty of stability. The only downside is that the top is much wider than a standard tripod in order to accomodate the ball adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WoooW Very cool, light and suitable size, i used with my canon lens 600 mm and carried it easily, easy installation and storage, I'm very happy with it.
