At review time, I consider the ultimate tripod to be the Gitzo GT3542LS . But, there are times when I need something smaller and/or lighter. And for these times, I need the ultimate "travel" tripod. The Gitzo GT1542T Traveler Carbon Fiber Tripod is what I consider to be just that.

I've had this tripod for about a year and a half now and it is in pretty bad shape.The stopper at the end of one leg fell off during a shoot, since I was in the forest, I was unable to find the stopper. Without this stopper dirt, sand, and water can freely get into my tripod leg threads.

    Flimsy Construction

I have several tripods (Gitzo, Manfrotto, and Induro), but I needed a truly lightweight and compact tripod that could bear the weight of my D700 and 5-pound lens and be easy to carry in luggage or in a small back pack.
