I bought this tripod to replace a Gitzo metal tripod. It was a shorter tripod to keep the weight down so I had to do a lot of bending over. I also had to use both the long and short center posts with it and swap the ball head all the time.
Great tripod. Solid, light, and easy to carry. I'm retired and try to do landscape work. This tripod helps me get out and be creative.
I use this tripped for a **mm spotting scope and it is a wonderful combination of stability at high magnification and light weight.
We have 2 other Gitzo tripods. They perform flawlessly for us in our outdoor photography. They set up quickly when it counts. Wildlife moves fast and the shots can be lost if you take too long setting up. No problem with these tripods. Legs extend and lock in seconds.
My wife has the old series which is light,strong, and sturdy. I am surprised this version is heavier and a bit bigger. The ballhead platform is the most different from the old series. It is big and very beefy. It is as strong as (if not stronger) than the old 3-series.
I use it mostly for landscape photography requiring long shutter speed. My wife has the old version GT-2531. I thought the new 2532 would be very similar to the old one in size and weight. Well, big surprise. The 2532 is a bit heavier and bigger than the old one. It is like the 3-series.
With plethora of tripods available I have always bought Gitzo carbon tripods. For my height this is perfect. I extend all 3 sections and with the tripod head and camera it comes right to my eye level, no fussing around adjusting the length of one section.
Highly durable and extremely rugged. I'm an ornithologist by trade, and that means I take my gear out into some nasty habitat. The Gitzo Mountaineer has never let me down. I do recommend purchasing the spike foot set if you do any outdoor work.
I travel through Europe quite a lot in the late summer and early fall. I do carry a tripod wherever I go as I never know exactly when I will need it. In Europe there is no getting around walking a lot.
