GK2545T-82QD is the strongest and most professional Traveler tripod/head kit, comprising the GT2545T Tripod and the GH1382QD Centre Ball Head. Traveler Tripods, with the 180° leg folding system pioneered by Gitzo, makes more efficient use of folded space by accommodating the centre column and head in between the folded tripod legs. They are now even stronger with the state of the art “Carbon eXact” tubes, more space efficient with the compact ''Traveler G-lock'', more professional with the smooth and precise heads, and easier to carry with the supplied shoulder strap. Series 2 tripod GT2545T has the largest tube diameters among Traveler tripods. It is much taller than its predecessor thanks to the space efficient Traveler G-lock. Recommended for use with 200mm lenses (300mm maximum), it is ideal for photographers using longer lenses or requires the highest stability. The feet are interchangeable with Gitzo’s optional feet, such as spikes and large feet. The head GH1382QD is engineered and designed focusing on ultimate smoothness and precision of the movement and locking. Despite its slim design, it is fully featured including the friction control knob positioned inside the ball locking knob. The head can be removed easily to attach other heads on the tripod's upper disc, but it is recommended to use the GH1382QD head to ensure perfect fitting of the head between the folded legs.
