The Gitzo GT2543L Mountaineer Series 2 Long Tripod is a long 4-section, Series 2 tripod designed to reach eye-level when fully extended. Sturdy and perfectly balanced, the GT2543L is recommended for DSLRs with 200mm lenses (up to a maximum of 300mm). Features Carbon eXact tubes and larger tube diameters for significant improvements in stiffness. Top leg section diameter: 29.0mm.

The centre column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 16 cm. Its four-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity, and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles. A ballast hook on the centre column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.


Key Features of the Gitzo GT2543L Mountaineer Series 2 Long Tripod

  • Load Capacity: 18 Kg
  • Max height: 179 cm
  • Min height: 16 cm
  • Folded Length: 61 cm
  • Leg Sections: 4
  • Weight: 1.72 Kg

Reversible Column

The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low-level macro work.

Hook

This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod centre column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.

Removable feet

This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sandshoes.

Carbon eXact

Revolutionary Carbon eXact tubes are even stiffer to maximize rigidity and image stability. Carbon eXact optimizes the fibre composition for each tube size, using HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre in the narrower tubes to make them stiffer. The tube diameters are also optimized: the final leg section of a 4 section Series 1 tripod is now 22.5% thicker than its predecessor.

G-lock Ultra

Our G-lock system has been redesigned from the inside out; G-lock Ultra is smoother and softer to use and is designed to reduce dust and grit from getting in.

Ground-level set (with unlocking ring)

Completely redesigned for faster operation, this Ground Level Set mechanism permits to remove the centre column to get the camera closer to the ground. A single simple unlocking ring under the column's upper disc frees the column while keeping the upper disc solidly in place on the tripod (Patent Pending).

Leg angle selector with spring

Offers large grip space and features a built-in spring to help speed up switches between the 3 leg angles.
