Not the lightest, not the quickest to set up or take down, but topnotch quality and the best one tripod does all solution I've seen. I use it for video and stills. I keep a video head on it but the flexibility of the off center column allows me to do anything a still head would (not as quickly,...
Only used for few times but appear very sturdy and well made. Will absolutely recommend.
What a sweet tripod. For year I have wanted a tight to the ground adjustable to any elevation tripod. I purchased a used Benbo.,it was great but I was frustrated setting it up. Felt I was wrestling a Octopus!!! The Explore is so easy . One lever adjust at any angle to u level ground is awesome.
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.

This tripod is so awesome. It gets into any place you can think of. It's light and its sturdy!
This is currently my favorite tripod for all-around work in the field. It is tall enough to use for landscapes (though it could be taller), and it is extremely flexible for macro work with flowers. It is light enough that you can carry it all day without really noticing it.
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.
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.
A landscape photographer primarily, I use a tripod for most of my images. I have tried a number of metal, wood, and carbon fiber tripods. I turned to Gitzo because of its reputation and my experience with its bigger units when I shot only large format.
