Gitzo Tripod

  • Excerpt: I have not used this extensively but it is extremely solid & yet closes small enough to attach to the side of my backpack. It seems extremely well made.

Absolutely Positively NO Regrets!

16 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I spent a year - yup, one year - wrestling the tripod purchase decision. I'd already picked up a highly one that I thought would do the job but, alas, the workmanship didn't see it through two years.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Light, Lightweight, Multifunctional, Sturdy
  • Cons: None

Rigid and Light

  • Excerpt: I would recommend this tripod for landscapes/cityscapes/portraits. I found it rock solid even for heavy body/lens combinations. Setup is easy. It is light weight for the amount of rigidity it provides which makes carrying it in the field acceptable.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Rigid
  • Cons: Expensive

Very high quality, LS is perfect height

  • Excerpt: As expected, very high quality. Height is perfect for 5'11" to get viewfinder high enough so I don't have to bend over.
  • Pros: Great Finish, Lightweight, Smooth Operation
  • Cons: Price

Wonderful tripod

Robert, B&H Photo
22 December 2014
  • Excerpt: This is an upgrade from a manfrotto C190 - that was a fine beginner tripod (even a bit better than beginner), but the Gitzo feels so much more solid. I also got the wonderfully designed and small footprint arca-swiss monopod P0 (highly recommended), which pairs very well with the Gitzo.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Fits In My Carry-on, Great Picture Quality, Reasonably Light
  • Cons: Price

Just what I hoped for

HistoryGuy, B&H Photo
17 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I was looking for a more solid tripod that was still relatively light weight and transportable. I think this will fit the bill nicely. It's very stable, well-made, quick to set up and knock down. I look forward to using it for a long time.
  • Pros: Easy to Use

As good as advertised

  • Excerpt: This is a very sturdy tripod with modest weight. It is tall enough to be at eye level for at 6 feet. It has a convenient midway mark on the top section so if you need it to fit a person a few inches shorter it is easy to match the legs. It is as steady as other reviewers note it to be.

Bit the bullet

1st timer!, B&H Photo
21 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Finally bit the bullet. Going back and forth between RRS and Girzo. Then I read a couple of threads where these guys did a test comparing the gt3542ls against the rrs. A vibration test and the gitzo was better.
