Gitzo Mountaineer Tripod Series 3, 4 Sections GT3542
Series 3 is the most rigid in the Gitzo Mountaineer series of Gitzo carbon fibre tripods. Scaled for professional equipment, including medium format cameras and DSLRs with 300mm lens (400mm maximum), the Carbon eXact tubes and new design features of Series 3 Mountaineer tripods offer increased rigidity yet reduced weight. Habing 4 Sections allows the photographer to pack smaller and travel faster with a closed length of only 54cm despite the excellent 21kg payload.
The latest series of Mountaineer tripods maintain the lightweight characteristics of preceding Carbon 6X models, but are even stiffer, thanks to the fibre composition of our Carbon eXact tubing and tube dimension optimisations that include larger diameters of lower leg sections.
New Mountaineer tripods feature G-lock Ultra, a redesigned version of Gitzo tripods signature leg lock system G-lock. G-lock Ultra has even more comfortable operation and reduced risk of debris entering the tubes and locking mechanisms. It is fine-tuned for the smaller differences in tube diameter between leg sections ofCarbon eXact tubes, contributing to increased stiffness of the legs.
The Ground Level Set mechanism, which lets the photographer remove the centre column to get the camera closer to the ground, has been completely redesigned for faster operation. A single simple unlocking ring under the column's upper disc frees the column while keeping the upper disc solidly in place on the tripod, with no need to unscrew and re-fit the upper disc and hook as in previous versions.
