GITZO MINI TRAVELER – Strong, small, carbon fibre tripod… BUT HOW MUCH?
I’m here with Francesca from Gitzo
who is going to tell us about this really cool neat little Gitzo tripod. So
Francesca tell me a little bit more about this then. Ok, you know Gitzo has
always been a pioneer in it’s field and this time has created a very great
product – the Mini Traveler. It weighs only 265g so it is meant to be used with
CSC cameras or compact cameras and it’s able to hold 3 kilograms of
payload. It is fully CNC machined so it is really reliable and the aluminum
structure is the best achievable. The legs are made from carbon fibre – the
same carbon tubes that we use for our full-size tripods and they are really
stiff, robust and lightweight. We have it available in two colour versions
– the classic look of Gittzo or the full black – very modern and perfect for
the new mirrorless on the market. And it also features dual innovations. The first
one is that the pull and fix leg angle selector and you only need to
pull and release the leg to achieve the best angle possible that can fit
perfectly your surfaces. Of course for a better fit to
most surfaces the rubber feet are well shaped for the best performance.
The second innovation is they’ve had the brake so you can see
that there are no knobs on the overall tripod in fact the brake it’s in
between of the head and the spider casting so you just have to unscrew and
move the the sphere and you can lock very easily also during shooting. So
it is available starting from October and the price point is at 199 Euros.
– So it holds three kilos? – Three Kilos payload – and can you take the head off?
– In the packaging is included an allen [hex] key and you can detach the head. It is very
easy to do be detached and you can also use a standalone legs. The legs
are able to hold 25 kilos so a great result, but also you can match
these legs with your prefered head, so we suggest to use it with
smallest centre ball head by Gitzo on the travel series. – That’s
great it looks it looks really neat like Francesca said it’s the same kind of
quality carbon fibre that you know we’ve come to expect from Gitzo tripods and this
head is really nicely engineered it goes from being sort of very loose and in
just that a turn all of a sudden it locks and it’s very sturdy on there and
it holds 25 kilos if you’re just using the legs and you’re just using kind of
1/4inch thread underneath. That’s really impressive
I really I want one of these! Francesca thank you very much.
