About the Gitzo Series 2 Carbon 6x Explorer Tripod 4 Section
Gitzo GT2541EX Replaces: GT2540EX
Thanks to it's unconventional design, the legs can be set at any angle and moved independently while the center column tilts and rotates freely to any position. The Explorer unleashes its potential when used with a Gitzo off-center ball head, a combination that makes it the ideal tripod for creative photographers, looking for unconventional shots: close to ground, upside down or in tight or awkward spaces. Ideal applications are outdoor macro and nature photography, still life and architectural.

G-LOCK G-Lock is the new Gitzo leg locking system. The locking mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a "gravity lock" effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
RAPID COLUMN 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.
REVERSIBLE COLUMN The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.
HOOK This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) fromthe bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with longheavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
LEG ENDS All tripods and monopods in Series 1 and above are provided with removable rubber feet. This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes. (4 sections tripods in Series 1 are excluded because the final leg section is too narrow to fit these ends).
POWER DISC The new tripod upper disc is called "Power Disc". It is made of machined solid aluminum and it now features two locking screws, one to lock the head, the other to safely lock the disc onto the column. The "Power Disc" gives a rock solid connection of the whole system for additional safety and stability.
LEG ANGLES Gitzo tripods feature a variety of leg openings. From one spread of series 0 to infinite angles of Explorer tripods. New series 1, 2 ,3 and Leveling tripods now feature an upgraded upper casting with an additional third leg spread. The three leg spreads allows you to set the tripods at three different levels (high, medium, low). The new low position allows you to take full advantage of the "Ground Level Set".
