Gitzo Carbon Fiber Tripod (GT3542) with Manfrotto Ballhead Swiss Arca Head
Gitzo Carbon Fiber Tripod with Really Right Stuff BH-55 Head. The GT3542 Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fiber in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The GT3542 has a load capacity of 46.3 lb, extends to a maximum height of 63.8", and folds down to 21.3" for transport. The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 5.9. Its four-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity, and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles. A ballast hook on the center column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability. Manfrotto 057 Magnesium Ball Head with MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate. This 057 Magnesium Ball Head from Manfrotto features an integrated Arca-type clamp and a MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate. Arca-type compatible quick release plates can be attached or removed from the clamp by tightening or loosening the clamp's locking knob. Within the recessed surface between the clamp's jaws is a retaining pin, which prevents an installed quick release plate from accidentally sliding off when the clamp is opened. The 057 Magnesium Ball Head with MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate has a load capacity of 33.1 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8-16 mount. Toward the ball head's base is a secondary locking knob that controls the ability to rotate the head 360°.
An additional knob opposite the secondary locking knob can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements. Finally, a two-position slide-switch at the base of the ball-and-socket joint allows it to be tilted down to either a 90° or a 103° angle before it is locked into place using the primary locking knob. The ability to tilt the ball-and-socket joint down to angle beyond 90° can be used to quickly level a camera placed on this 057 Magnesium Ball Head without having to adjust the tripod the ball head is connected to.
Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate, which measures 2.8 x 2.2 x 0.4".
