Gitzo GK1580QR Series 1 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ballhead and Rapid Column Maximum Height 66" Supports 15 lbs. -

The Gitzo GK1580QR Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a complete solution for discriminating users who want exacting placement, premium operational refinement and very low weight to carry. It is ideal for use with a modern SLR and a lens of up to 135mm in any conditions and usually will provide sharp images even with a lens as long as 200mm. The fit and finish are delightful and what you should expect from the industry's top brand; Gitzo means for your tripod to deliver decades of service and offers a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.
The GT1541 leg set is Gitzo's standard-height Series 1 6x carbon fiber model, made from their superior, ultra-thin carbon fiber strands. Beyond the weight savings we're all after, carbon fiber has a tendency to 'eat' vibrations rather than transmitting them, much like a wooden tripod would. The GH1780QR Center Ballhead is from their most modern collection, a PTFE-treated sphere with a large locking knob on the side and a very impressive ability to stay where you put it once locked. It has a quick release system specific to Gitzo and it has a bubble level right at the base of the plate. Altogether, this Gitzo kit folds to just 25", weighs only 3.2 lbs and reaches a comfortable operating height for most buyers.

  • Gitzo "Power Disc" top plate with anti-twist safety screws to affix head/lens collar to disc and disc to monopod stem
