Great Tripod!

Adorama
9 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I love this tripod. I specifically selected this tripod because of my interest in macro-photography. I wanted the horizontal arm option. The Manfrotto I looked at only allowed for vertical or horizontal, while the Gitzo allowed for any angle. It's a bit more flexible. Also it's a bit heavier than I expected but, very stable. I debated the 4-section vs 3-section model. I was leaning toward the 4-section because it folds smaller.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly

Rock steady tripod

tazmans, Adorama
22 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Great tripod legs. Rock steady but a little bit of a learning curve to get use to the set up. I was use to just pulling the legs out on all of my other tripod that I have had but this one you have to release a lever to move the legs in any direction. Now that I am use to it, its fantastic.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight
  • Cons: Set up a little slow

  • Pros: Stability, smooth operating legs, lightweight, attractive design, build quality

Heavy for an explorer product

Patrick, WEX
2 April 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this tripod and a suitable head for travelling, but in the end purchased a second one from another brand. It's a very good tripod, although a bit stiff to operate, but the explorer name belies the fact that with a head you're looking at 2.5kg, which is a heavy lump to lug around with the rest of the equipment.
  • Pros: Compact, Good Footing, Locks In Tight
  • Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Heavy, Jerky Movement

Très grande polyvalence...

Duflos De Saint Amand, Amazon
26 October 2011
  • Summary: Une valeur sûre comme la plupart des produits Gitzo, ce trépied est d'une adaptabilité étonnante, peu de situations lui résisteront!!! Par contre, ces capacités demande un temps d'apprentissage pour être capable de le déployer sur le terrain rapidement tellement les possibilités de réglage sont diverses! Enfin, un petit reproche, la version 3 section, si elle présente une rigidité probablement supérieure, est d'un encombrement qui peut être problématique.

Gitzo GT2531EX

vetphot, Amazon
26 October 2011
  • Summary: Absolument somptueux! Sa polyvalence en fait pour moi le trépied universel de rêve! Seul bémol: pour son prix, Gitzo pourrait fournir des embouts à pointe en plus des caoutchoucs livrés de série.
