The Gitzo SER.2 Safari Traveler BW Tripod Kit (Carbon Fiber) is an exceptionally lightweight (4.32 lbs/1.96 kg) and compact tripod that's ideal for traveling and birdwatching. It has a maximum height of 5.38' (1.64 m) and folds down to 20.87" (53 cm), with a minimum working height of 12.6" (32 cm). It includes a lightweight tilt head with a quick release plate, and supports up to 8.82 lbs (4 kg). It features G-lock for faster operation and stronger leg locking, as well as Ocean Lock, which minimizes the amount of water and debris that can enter the leg tubes and locking mechanisms. It also has the Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) system which allows you to open the tripod in less than 15 seconds. The ultimate support solution for birdwatchers.

Ground Level Set
This feature allows you to remove the center column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground. Uses existing components: the upper disc with reversible 1/4" - 3/8" bolt and the column hook assembly. Remove column and fix the disk directly to the upper casting using the column hook. No tools needed.

The locking mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a "gravity lock" effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.

Rapid Column
The center column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation grooved centre column for improved stability.

Reversible Column
The rapid column can easily be inverted for an alternative shooting angle or low level macro work.

This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.

The Ocean-Lock is a special version of Gitzo G-Lock, with the same outstanding locking performances. Thanks to two special seals derived form the automation industry, it minimizes the amount of water and debris that may enter tubes and locking mechanisms. The Ocean-Lock is not 100% waterproof--however, it dramatically enhances the capacity of the tripod to withstand extreme environments.

We have introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.

Spike Feet
Stainless steel spikes for tripods and monopod, especially usefull for soft underground outdoors.

Carbon Fiber Tube 6x
Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties. Despite the claims of other manufacturers, the performance of this multilayer design is unique and inimitable thanks to the advanced aerospace production technology and the exclusive inner structure. It is the highest density tube 100% made of top quality ultra thin (7?m) carbon fibers (a 28mm tube contains 1.500.000 carbon fibers).
