The Gitzo GT1555T Series 1 Traveler Carbon Fiber Tripod is a compact support with legs that fold around the center column and optional ball head. These reverse-folding legs contribute to the tripod’s folded length of just 14″. It extends to 54.3″ high and can hold up to 22 lb worth of gear. With the included short center column installed, the tripod can get down to 7.9″ for macro or low-angle shooting.
The tripod employs Carbon eXact tubing for added strength and stiffness compared to the Carbon 6X tubes. Traveler G-lock is a pared-down version of Gitzo’s G-lock, specifically designed for the Traveler tripods to reduce overall size. Re-designed space-saving rubber feet can be easily replaced if they are worn out. A shoulder strap is included for easy carrying.
