The Gitzo GT0542 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a carefully designed 4-section tripod - the most compact in the Mountaineer range, folding down to just 48 cm. This professional tripod features Carbon eXact tubing with high modulus carbon fiber in all leg sections. The lowest leg section has a diameter of 11.2mm, which is 40 % larger than its predecessor, making this tripod stiffer and stronger. The Gitzo GT0542 weighs just 1.12 Kg and extends to a height of 137 cm.

The tripod’s rapid center column is easily removed or reversible, transforming it into a ground level set enabling photographers to capture the broadest range of perspectives. The Gitzo GT0542’s 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. Easily add a wide array of heads and other accessories via the 1/4″ and 3/8″ attachment on the upper disc.

carbon eXact

Revolutionary Carbon eXact tubes are even stiffer to maximize rigidity and image stability. Carbon eXact optimizes the fibre composition for each tube size, using HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre in the narrower tubes to make them stiffer. The tube diameters are also optimized: the final leg section of a 4 section Series 1 tripod is now 22.5% thicker than its predecessor.

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.

leg angle selector with spring

Offers large grip space and features a built-in spring to help speed up switches between the 3 leg angles.

ground level set (with unlocking ring)

Completely redesigned for faster operation, this Ground Level Set mechanism permits to remove the centre column to get the camera closer to the ground. 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 (Patent Pending).

g-lock ultra

Our G-lock system has been redesigned from the inside out; G-lock Ultra is smoother and softer to use, and is designed to reduce dust and grit from getting in.

reversible column

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