Lightweight Support for Your DSLR

The Gitzo Mountaineer Kit S1 Carbon 4-Sec Ball Head QD 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 fibre in all leg sections, which make this tripod more rigid and stronger than others in its category.

The tripod weighs just 1.28 kg, reaches a height of 159 cm and folds down to 54 cm. This tripod is the perfect choice for passionate and professional photographers who want a highly-resistant and reliable support.

The Gitzo Mountaineer Tripod Kit's rapid centre column is easily be 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 broader grip-area for leg-angle adjustment. The tripod features a stabiliser hook on its centre 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.


Best Ball Head for Gitzo Mountaineer Tripod

The 82QD Series 1 Gitzo ball head is a medium-sized professional tripod head designed for Series 0 and 1 Mountaineer tripods. It weighs just 500 g and safely holds a 14-kg load. Standing at 11.2 cm, it’s still compact enough to fit between the folded legs of Series 2 Traveler tripods. Despite its slim design, the Gitzo Ball Head packed with features, including a friction control knob located inside the ball locking knob for precise adjustment. This model features 360° independent panning lock and provides uncompromising ball smoothness since it’s constructed with high-quality, high-resistance steel and aluminium components. The supplied quick-release plate is kept locked with a screw-knob and a bubble level helps photographers keep a straight horizon.

It is supplied with the short, Arca-Swiss compatible plate (GS5370SD), but is also compatible with all of Gitzo's D profile plates and fits most Arca-Swiss style plates from other brands.
