The GK1542-82QD is a carbon fiber tripod kit comprising a GT1542 Mountaineer Tripod and a GH1382QD Center Ball Head.
The Gitzo GT1542 Mountaineer series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a lightweight 4-section tripod that perfectly supports DSLRs with 135mm lenses (up to 200mm). This professional tripod features Carbon eXact tubing with stiffer and larger leg diameters (top leg section diameter 25.3mm) and high modulus carbon fiber in all leg sections, which make this tripod more rigid and stronger than others in its category. The tripod’s rapid center column is easily removed, transforming it into a ground level set enabling photographers to capture the broadest range of perspectives. It also has a reversible column mechanism. The Gitzo GT1542 four-section legs are secured by G-lock Ultra twist locks, with a built-in O-ring that keeps dirt and dust out of the leg mechanism. The tripod’s top spider is newly designed for extra rigidity, and large leg angle selectors provide a broader grip-area for leg-angle adjustment. The tripod features a stabilizer hook on its center column to add weight and increase stability when required. A wide array of heads and other accessories can easily be added via the 1/4″ and 3/8″ attachment on the upper disc.
The GH1382QD is a perfectly balanced, versatile tripod head engineered to ensure the ultimate smoothness and precision of movement and secure locking. Supplied with the short, Arca-Swiss compatible plate (GS5370SD) and also compatible with all Gitzo’s D profile plates and most Arca-Swiss style plates by other brands.
The GK1542-82QD carbon fiber tripod kit is the perfect choice for passionate and professional photographers looking for lightweight, reliable support.
