Good light weight tripod. Three sections for fast set up. The feet of the tripod screw in andOn the third use I noticed a loose foot, screwed it in tighter and found that I'd already lost another foot. For such an expensive tripod this style attachment is cheap for field use.
An excellent choice. A very sturdy tripod. A must have one.
As a tripod it's very sturdy, doesn't wobble at all and I tried different scenarios to check that, even tapping on one of the legs and there are no teethering/wobbling at all. Very easy to use. Tried it in the field and wow is it handy.
Great combination of light weight and stiffness. Quality starts from the box and will not disappoint when you open it. However if you think about traveling then GT1532 will meet you expectations better. But that size finally made my choice towards 2532. Gitzo or something else? Only Gitzo.
The new GITZO GT2532 Mountaineer Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is beautifully made. The 3 (three) leg sections make it very fast to set up and take down. I am using a RRS BH-55 ballhead. This combination is perfect. Make sure you purchase the GITZO GC3101 padded tripod bag to go with it.
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.
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.
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 have used the prior model GT 2531 for 3 yrs,( after using a Manfrotto 190B for 3 yrs) but the following points are valid. AS ALWAYS IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU WANT IT FOR!!!A lighter one would be better for hiking extensively--Sure would!A Heavier one better for studio or Mega-Lens work--Sure would!
