Gitzo Series 2 GK2580QR 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Kit with Ballhead and Rapid Column Maximum Height 64" Supports 26.4 lbs /12 Kg -

The Gitzo GK2580QR Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a complete solution for discriminating users who want exacting placement, premium operational refinement and minimal weight to carry. It is ideal for use with a modern SLR and a lens of up to 200mm in any conditions and usually will provide sharp images even with a lens as long as 300mm. The GT2541 leg set is Gitzo's standard-height Series 2 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 GH2780QR 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. You can also adjust the friction of the ball when unlocked, allowing you to track moving subjects with autofocus without needing to constantly worry about keeping your hands on the gear. Altogether, this Gitzo kit folds to 26.4, weighs only 4.1 lbs and reaches a comfortable operating height for most buyers.
