The Gitzo GK2545T-82QD Series 2 Traveler Carbon Fiber Tripod with Center Ball Head is a compact support with legs that fold around the center column and Center Ball Head. These reverse-folding legs contribute to the tripod's folded length of just 17.5". It extends to 65.2" high and can hold up to 26 lb worth of gear. With the included short center column installed, the tripod can get down to 13" for macro or low-angle shooting.
The tripod employs Carbon eXact tubing for added strength and stiffness compared to the Carbon 6X tubes. Traveler G-lock is a pared-down version of Gitzo's G-lock, specifically designed for the Traveler tripods to reduce overall size. The rubber feet are interchangeable with a variety of feet including steel spikes for use on different surfaces. Additionally, a shoulder strap is included for easy carrying.
The Center Ball Head is an Arca-type compatible head that has a separate lock for the 360° panning and another to control the movement of the ball. A tungsten disulfide coating on the ball helps keep the ball movement smooth and minimizes stick-slip. A screw-knob lock tightens down on the included quick-release plate and a bubble level helps you maintain straight horizons in your images. To allow for precise adjustments, a friction control dial is integrated into the large locking knob.
