Basics Of Gitzo Tripods
If any of you have ever read Thom Hogan’s article on tripods, you’ll understand that finding a decent cheap tripod is darn near impossible. Since I’m only an amateur, but want something light, sturdy and easy to travel, I decided on Gitzo’s GT1541T. Just as advised, it weights 2.5 lb, with the folded length less than 22 in, yet can carry 17 lb gear; what it means in practice is that I can put it in a regular backpack/suitcase when taking the planes, it’s not too much burden to carry during hiking, and it can hold D90 + 70-300mm lens with no problem (+ 1780 head is only 4 lb).
You can use it for vlogging tripod 2018 and other purposes as well.
As far as usability, it is very easy (and quick) to get set up. Stability-wise, it is pretty decent, given the small size and light weight. You can hang the camera bag on the center column hook (which is a nice feature of this tripod), and try not to extend the center column to increase stability.
All the good things you may have read about this tripod are true. Extremely light, extremely compact, extremely rigid, well engineered and well fabricated is how I would describe it. No kidding. When the UPS guy delivered this package, I thought they must have forgotten to put the tripod in the box. Amazingly light. I can easily lift this with my little finger.
