With such a good ratio of compact folded length to extended open height, the
Traveler is the ideal tripod to carry with you around the world. Gitzos unique
patented 180 folding mechanism accommodates the head inside the folded tripod
legs and makes this the smallest folded tripod for its open size and number of
sections. Matching this compactness with the sturdiness of lightweight carbon
fiber and good speed in setup makes the Travelers the ultimate tripods.
ALR (Anti Leg Rotation)
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.
Ground Level Set
This new feature allows you to remove the center 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.
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 center column.
Useful with long heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
The center column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to
adjust the column quickly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation
grooved center column for improved stability.
The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low
level macro work.
