Only used for few times but appear very sturdy and well made. Will absolutely recommend.

Things that take some getting used to are 1. Having to unlock the legs every time you want to set it up or move it, the simple get around is don't re-lock the legs when you fold up and move to a new location. 2.

Purchased this tripod and a suitable head for travelling, but in the end purchased a second one from another brand. It's a very good tripod, although a bit stiff to operate, but the explorer name belies the fact that with a head you're looking at 2.5kg, which is a heavy lump to lug around with the...

Full flexibility of center column and legs that move without detents make this ideal for all types of nature photography. Slows down the picture taking process with all the possible adjustments which is a good thing since that allows the photographer to survey the entire scene.

It's very durable, easy to use especially for landscape photography - legs adjust to any position. a little pricey

I bought the GT2531EX two years ago and I have used it frequently under different conditions.It was bought to replace the prior Gitzo G1227Mk2 with the center column ripped off and replaced by a Kirk base to best stability and flexibility to reach (near) ground level positioning.

I'm a Gitzo guy so this is my 4th Gitzo in my career which spans over 25 years. I got it for the flexibility with the boom arm and legs which can be set at any angle. I've only had it for a few weeks but so far it is doing the job.

Easy to set up and use, especially in uneven or difficult terrain. Very steady. Cannot be use in salt water. I live near the ocean. For this reason, I deducted one star.
