Hi there and welcome to my listing. Anyone who knows anything about tripods will know the Gitzo name and that their carbon fiber tripods are some of the best on the market. It is also as fully kitted out as you would need it to be with a Lenscoat shoulder cushion pad (anyone who has walked a long way with a heavy lense on a tripod will swear by this pad) , with Lenscoat padded leg protectors to also aid in comfort when shoulder carrying and also if you are somewhere very cold grabbing bare tripod legs after being in the snow is no fun. I have also put sand/snow feet on the tripod to create more surface area to give it more stability when using the tripod on those surfaces or just anywhere in general and they work like a treat and also fold up well to save space when travelling.This Gitzo tripod is the L version (long) and has four leg sections compared to the normal 3 section and at its full extension with the centre column extended it is well over 7ft tall although i have never used it at full extension or with the centre colum extended. The tripod is in excellent shape and works as it is supposed to with the leg fasteners locking tight without any slip under weight and the leg releases allowing almost ground level angles for photography or video (with centre column removed). It also has a built in accessory hook on the bottom of the centre colum to hold a camera bag or sand bag etc.
For more stability if needed. The Manfrotto ball head and wimberley clamp have some cosmetic wear as you would expect but nothing that affects the performance and they will stand up to anything you throw at them and the ballhead will lock fast with any weight attached at any angle , it really is amazing. To make transporting the tripod around easier it comes with a new manfrotto tripod bag. I have used a nikon 400 2.8 with a 2x teleconverter attached to a Nikon D5 on a wimberley gimbal head on this tripod and it has worked flawlessly.To put it into a financial perspective , to try to build a set up like this new from scratch would cost approx.
