Bought this to replace longer center pole

  • Excerpt: I think the product is very good but the information and instructions that come with it are inadequate. That is a manufacturers issue - not B & H.

As much as I expected

  • Excerpt: I purchased my Gitzo tripod because of it's quality and features. The low level kit enables me to use my tripod nearer to ground level and be able to shoot the images I desire.

Not quite short enough

  • Excerpt: With a Gitzo 2531 not quite short enough. I agree with a previous poster that it needs to be about 1 1/2 inches shorter to take full advantage of the tripod when legs at the maximum spread position. I like it, just wish it was a tad shorter.

A very convenient addition.

  • Excerpt: This allows rapid exchange between gimbal and ball heads for my larger lens, grants lower ground clearance and reduces what I have to carry while maintaining flexibility of lens choice in the field.

Beautifully crafted - a superb accessory

  • Excerpt: Combined with the self leveling 6X tripod, the short center column allows me to lower the Gitzo tripod to about 7 inches off the ground. Using a Hasselblad H4 with the waist level viewfinder lets me work comfortably at a very low point of view.

  • Excerpt: I would give it 5 stars but it's about 1.5 inches too long. With the legs on my GT2531 at their lowest angle and the short column touching the ground there is still 1.5 inched of the center post extending above the locking collar.

just what I needed

  • Excerpt: When I open the performance tripod legs "two clicks", the 60 degree position, the standard center post touches the ground beneath. and I need to extend it above the Saflok plate. I use the short post on a GT2942L, a Series 2 eyelevel basalt.

versatility and speed

Hillsee, B&H Photo
10 September 2008
  • Excerpt: I shoot landscapes, and frequently need a low tripod position for the angles which capture close foreground texture. This column gets me low without having to resort to taking the column out, allowing smooth, fast transition to lower and higher positions, and ultimately more opportunities to capture...
