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.
This model is identical to the ever popular GT1545T, but it offers a superior 12kg load capacity thanks to 2-series legs. The folded size is only 5mm more and it weighs a bit extra at 1330g. If you want a traveler tripod, but you feel that the GT1545T is a bit small, then this is the ideal model. We recommend this one over the 1-series if you plan to use a 70-200mm f/2.8 with a pro body or anything heavier.
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.
