Gitzo GT0542 Mountaineer

This high-quality tripod is an essential accessory for any professional or amateur photographer. The Gitzo GT0542 Mountaineer tripod is sure to satisfy even the most demanding users. It is a compact tripod with the smallest composite length in the entire series. The tripod legs are made of Carbon eXact tubes, which is a technology that significantly increases the rigidity and strength of the tripod. The Ground Set Level system with a control ring allows you to shoot without a centre pole close to the ground. The quick-release reversible centre bar is a part of the tripod. The legs are adjustable at three angles, and there are also special G-Lock Ultra locks.

key features

  • Top-of-the-line 4-segment carbon tripod
  • With quick centre bar
  • Compact, lightweight and sturdy
  • Legs made of Carbon eXact tubes
  • Ability to position feet at three angles
  • Gravity system locks on the legs
  • Antilocking system against leg turning
  • Ground Level Set system to shoot low from the ground
  • Practical hook for loading
  • Maximum load 8kg

A unique carbon structure

The revolutionary technology of carbon fibre constructed tubes provides greater rigidity and tripod strength. Carbon eXact tubes are unique compared to other methods because they optimise the fibre composition according to the pipe diameter. In practice, this means that pipes with a lower diameter used an HM fibre diameter of only 5mm. At the same volume, it is then possible to retract 40% more fibres in crossed layers, which increases the strength of the tube.

G-Lock Ultra and ALR

The tripod is equipped with unique G-Lock Ultra locks, which delivers perfect ergonomics and strength. It speeds up the handling and prevents the penetration of dirt into the mechanism. The Gravity Lock works with weights, which vertically act on the tripod legs. The greater the load, the stronger the lock.

The Anti-Leg-rotation system is great against unwanted leg turning, to facilitate easier folding and unfolding of the tripod. It works on the principle of locking sleeves, which extends the 4-section tripod in less than 15 seconds.

Ground Level Set and lock

Ground Level Set stands at the end of system development, which allows you to manipulate the centre bar and shoot low to the ground without removing the camera. The result is a simple locking disc located beneath the upper disc, which releases a central rod, while the upper disc with a mounted head and camera remains firmly in place. For users, the benefit is absolutely clear - to accelerate, simplify and streamline work.
