strong and Sturdy

  • Excerpt: I use it mostly for landscape photography requiring long shutter speed. My wife has the old version GT-2531. I thought the new 2532 would be very similar to the old one in size and weight. Well, big surprise. The 2532 is a bit heavier and bigger than the old one. It is like the 3-series. I wish the 2532 was lighter and smaller. But the good thing is that it is almost stronger than the old 3-series. The platform for the ballhead is huge and beefy.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use
  • Cons: Bulky

Perfect for person between 65 to 70 inch

  • Excerpt: With plethora of tripods available I have always bought Gitzo carbon tripods. For my height this is perfect. I extend all 3 sections and with the tripod head and camera it comes right to my eye level, no fussing around adjusting the length of one section. And the last section is thick enough that there is no sagging when the camera with the lens attached are placed provided it is below the maximum allowed weight.

Lighten the load

  • Excerpt: I travel through Europe quite a lot in the late summer and early fall. I do carry a tripod wherever I go as I never know exactly when I will need it. In Europe there is no getting around walking a lot. This one is too big to fit into a small bag or backpack(which could be a negative for some) so I do hand carry it but the extra stability I get from it outweighs the smaller "travel" tripods that may not be quite as stable.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight

I like it

  • Excerpt: This is my first Gitzo and my first sturdy tripod. I'm still at the amateur stage of my photography so considering the price I paid for this I was a little anxious at the thought of going too far over my budget. Then I got it out and put my ball head on top. I took my first shot and not only was the picture sharp, it was crystal clear. The longest lens I have is the canon 100-400mm and it works well on these legs. I'm very pleased.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

  • Excerpt: This is my second Gitzo tripod. When looking for a second lighter tripod, I didn't even bother checking out the other brands. I love both of them. I also have a Gitzo monopod.

A tripod for life (nearly)

Simon, WEX

  • Summary: I am a big fan of the Gitzo Systematic tripods, as I have a strong dislike of centre columns. This is because they add weight and bulk, get in the way when setting the tripod down low and significantly reduce stability when raised. Yes I know you can add a short column to any standard Gitzo tripod, but why bother?
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Expensive
