As part of the Gitzo series 2, the GT2940LVL Leveling Basalt Tripod Legs is a full-height eye-level tripod that is capable of holding a pro digital or 35mm SLR camera with a pro telephoto zoom lens (e.g. 70-200mm), medium format up to 6x6, a consumer camcorder, or a spotting scope.

Created from volcanic rock, Gitzo has utilized the volcanic-based basalt to develop tripods of exceptional performance, stability, and durability. The basalt, a black lightweight rock, is pulverized, then melted at extreme temperature (2732 degrees F) and combined with other materials and spun into a strong fiber which is used to create multi-layer composite tubing. The result is a non-rotating tube of exceptional performance that meets the demands of today's professional photographers.

Basalt tripods are more durable and better at absorbing vibrations than aluminum models with similar dimensions. These legs are tougher than aluminum, yet they are 20% lighter.

Leveling Column
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. This feature allows for instant, precise leveling, making it perfect for shooting digital photography on uneven terrain.
Anti-Rotation Leg (ALR) System
The Anti-Rotation Leg (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.
"H.I.S." (Hybrid Interconnecting System)
Mountaineer tripods are constructed using a "screw thread and adhesive" dual jointing technology pioneered by Gitzo. Called "H.I.S." (Hybrid Interconnecting System), this construction technique provides greater strength and stability.
Performance Design
Performance design allows the legs to be set individually at 24°, 55° and 90° to cover every angle you want to shoot.
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.
Rapid Column
Grooved Rapid center column for improved stability.
Removable Leg Tips
Removable rubber leg tips are interchangeable with Gitzo universal accessories such as the big foot, long spike, etc.
