DetailsThe GK2542-82QD is a carbon fiber tripod kit comprising a GT2542 Mountaineer Tripod and a GH3382QD Center Ball Head. The Gitzo GT2542 series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a lightweight 4-section tripod that reliably supports DSLRs with 200mm lenses (up to 300mm). This professional tripod features Carbon eXact tubing with stiffer and larger leg diameters with a top leg section diameter of 29.0mm and high modulus carbon fiber lower leg sections, making it 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 GT2542 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. Its removable feet enable it to adapt to any type of surface. 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 kit also includes the GH3382QD Series 3 Center Ball Head, Gitzo’s larger size professional tripod head. GH3382QD has a larger ball and quick-release adapter compared to the smaller versions. It ensures strong, comfortable use with heavier equipment. It is rich in features, including a friction control knob located inside the ball locking knob for precise adjustment. It has a 360° Independent panning lock and a ball-movement control lock. It provides uncompromising ball smoothness and is constructed with high-quality, high-resistance steel and aluminium components. The supplied quick-release plate is kept locked with a screw-knob helps photographers keep a straight horizon.
It is supplied with a Arca-Swiss compatible plate (GS5370D), but is also compatible with all of Gitzo's D profile plates and fits most Arca-Swiss style plates from other brands.
This kit is the perfect choice for passionate and professional photographers who want extremely resistant, perfectly balanced and reliable support for impeccable photography, even with heavier kit.
