The Gitzo GT2531EX 6X Carbon Fiber Explorer Tripod uses advanced “Carbon 6X” carbon fiber material for its leg construction. This improved tubing is stronger, lighter, and as resistant as its 12-layer predecessor. Carbon “6X” is manufactured using a complex, 3-D process weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes.
This tripod incorporates many new ideas in tripod design and offers extreme flexibility. It features individually locking legs that can be fixed at any angle from 0° to 90° and a column that will tilt from the vertical, right over beyond the horizontal and lock solidly at any angle.
The GT2531EX is especially ideal for outdoor macro and nature photography, when used with digital SLRs with 200mm lenses (up to a 300mm maximum), lightweight camcorders, or spotting scopes. It offers an excellent load capacity rating of 26.4 lb (12kg) and good torsional rigidity.
