Technical specifications Full list


The Gitzo GT1542 series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a lightweight 4-section tripod that perfectly supports DSLRs with 135mm lenses (up to 200mm). This professional tripod features Carbon eXact tubing with stiffer and larger leg diameters (top leg section diameter 25.3mm) and high modulus carbon fiber in all leg sections, which make this tripod more rigid and stronger than others in its category.
The Gitzo GT1542 weighs just 1.28 kg, reaches a height of 159 cm and folds down to 54 cm. This tripod is the perfect choice for passionate and professional photographers who want a highly-resistant and reliable support.
The tripod’s rapid center column is easily be removed, transforming it into a ground level set enabling photographers to capture the broadest range of perspectives. It also has a reversible column mechanism. The Gitzo GT1542 four-section legs are secured by G-lock Ultra twist locks, with a built-in O-ring that keeps dirt and dust out of the leg mechanism. The tripod’s top spider is newly designed for extra rigidity, and large leg angle selectors provide broader grip-area for leg-angle adjustment. The tripod features a stabilizer hook on its center column to add weight and increase stability when required. A wide array of heads and other accessories can easily be added via the 1/4″ and 3/8″ attachment on the upper disc.
