The Gitzo company has been on the market for almost 100 years and has more than 60 years' worth of experience in manufacturing tripods, tripod heads and support systems. These days Gitzo is a global leader in its field and produces high-quality and elaborate tripods, among them the Gitzo GT2545T from the Traveler series. As the name suggests, it is designed primarily for professional photographers who travel all around the world. All tripods from this series are extremely lightweight, exceptionally compact and perfectly manufactured. This tripod is suitable for lenses with the focal length of 200mm to 300mm and comes without a tripod head.
Carbon fibre tubes produced with Carbon eXact technology are the most advanced on the market. This technology provides great structural strength, resistance to bending and an excellent ability to absorb vibrations. One pipe with the diameter of 28mm is made of up to 1,500,000 carbon fibres the size of 7µm each.
Gitzo GT2545T Traveler closes by turning the legs by 180°. That means the centre column is stored between the folded legs which makes the tripod significantly shorter when closed. That's why it is a wonderfully compact tripod that is easy to carry. The legs have rubber tips which can be switched for spikes when you work in snow or sand. The short centre column lets you take photos close to the ground and the tripod comes with a shoulder strap.
The tripod has unique G-Lock locks. This mechanism has been completely redesigned and is now 20% harder and makes operation faster. The Gravity Lock works with the weight that pulls on the tripod legs vertically. The greater the load, the stronger the lock.
