Meet the new kid on the block in Gitzo's popular Traveler tripod series. This tripod is almost identical to the GT1545T, except that they have condensed 4 leg sections to 5, which results in a folded size that is 17% shorter. With a folded length of only 35.5cm and a weight of 1030g, this is arguably the most compact high-quality tripod on the market. It has a load capacity of 10kg, which is sufficient for a pro body with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. With the column up it reaches to 138cm, which is perfect for a person of average height. Due to its compact folded size, it disappears in a suitcase and even fits inside most camera bags. If you’re travelling and weight or space is an issue, this is the ultimate tripod.
September 2015 - The entire Traveler range has just received a major overhaul and now features all the latest tech first unveiled in the Mountaineer series. All Traveler models now have Gitzo's 'Carbon eXact' technology, which is the upgrade of their Carbon 6x tubes. These are stiffer and stronger, which delivers a higher load rating without compromising on the weight or size of the tripod. It also has the next generation G-Lock joints that feature fatter grips for easier locking and unlocking of the joints.
Designed to be as light and compact as possible, these tripods offer amazing stability and height, but fold up remarkably small. This range is recommended for travelling and hiking, which is its obvious purpose, but also to photographers who don’t want to carry a massive load. Traveler tripods have a center-column instead of the systematic baseplate; but you can rest assured that it is a properly designed one, as can be expected from Gitzo. When you need to get that super low-angle, the column can be removed in seconds.
The ideal is to have one of the systematic tripod models for everyday shooting and to have the traveler for when weight or space is an issue.
