Features

Ground Level Set

This new feature allows you to remove the centre column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground. Uses existing components: the upper disc with reversible 1/4' - 3/8' bolt and the column hook assembly: Remove column and fix the disk directly to the upper casting using the column hook. No tools needed.

G-Lock

G-Lock is the new Gitzo leg locking system. The locking mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a 'gravity lock' effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.

Reversible Column

The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.

Hook

This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod centre column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.

Power Disc

The new tripod upper disc is called 'Power Disc'. It is made of machined solid aluminum and it now features two locking screws, one to lock the head, the other to safely lock the disc onto the column. The 'Power Disc' gives a rock solid connection of the whole system for additional safety and stability.

Ocean-Lock

The Ocean-Lock is a special version of Gitzo G-Lock of which it maintains the same outstanding locking performances. Thanks to two special seals derived form the automation industry, it minimises the amount of water and debris that may enter tubes and locking mechanisms. The Ocean-Lock is not 100% waterproof, however it dramatically enhances the capacity of the tripod to withstand extreme environments.

ALR

We have introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.

Spikes

Stainless steel spikes for tripods and monopod, especially usefull for soft underground outdoors.

Carbon Fibre Tube 6X

Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties. Despite the claims of other manufactures, the performance of this multilayer design is unique and inimitable thanks to the advanced aerospace production technology and the exclusive inner structure. It is the highest density tube 100% made of top quality ultra thin (7m) carbon fibers (a 28mm tube contains 1.500.000 carbon fibers).
