The Gitzo GK2580TQR Series 2 Carbon Fibre Traveller Tripod + Ball & Socket Head is a regular sized tripod designed for portability with its compact and lightweight carbon fibre properties. Despite being very lightweight, the Gitzo GK2580TGR tripod does not compromise on strength or stability, allowing the production of consistently sharp images.
This series of Traveller Tripod also offers unparalleled torsion rigidity thanks to its sophisticated G-lock system and newly designed upper casting making it ideal for DSLRs with lenses up to an impressive 300mm. An additional feature of the Gitzo GK2580TQR Series 2 Carbon Fibre Traveller Tripod + Ball & Socket Head is a useful Gitzo display cleaner and convenient anti dust bag for packing and transportation. The Gitzo GK2580TQR is certainly an essential piece of kit for any photographer weary of carting around heavy tripods- the Traveller Tripod is undoubtedly a source of light relief.
This attribute allows the removal of the centre column to save weight to allow the camera to get closer to the ground. The G lock is Gitzo new Leg locking system. The locking mechanism has been redesigned so that it achieves a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. The G-Lock’s special design provides a ‘gravity lock’ effect so that the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
The centre column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column swiftly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation grooved centre column for improved stability. The rapid column can be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.
The ball head has a quick release plate and spirit level. This is a built-in accessory which allows the hanging of stabilised weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the centre column. This tripod comes with removable rubber feet, an attribute that can be easily changed for worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes. The ALR is a new Anti-Leg Rotation system which allows the tripod to be opened in less than 15 seconds.
