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.

The best there is, hands down. The art of tripod design and manufacturing. Worth every penny.

I almost returned the tripod once I looked at how small it was. something told me not to. I have used it on several sessions and I LOVE IT. It supports my camera with a 70-200mm easily. Awesome product and light as a feather.

i spent a ton of time researching tripods before buying this one- I matched it up with the arcatech ball and am very happy- i considered the Induro as well but wanted the best so went with Gitzo- i used it the other night in light winds and the center pulled out all the way and had no issues - of...

I moved to M4/3 from APS-C for smaller gear and form factor. It is VERY lightweight so you will def want to take advantage of the hook when using. I really love the new ground level mechanism. So quick and easy.

Great tripod but wish the feet were removable like the series two and three.
