Gitzo Traveller tripod + ball head
Tripod & head £599-£919, $584-$1099 www.gitzo.com
Gitzo’s latest Traveller tripods are available in three series. The Series 0 (the smallest) and Series 1 tripods have maximum payloads of 10kg, while the Series 2 model (the largest) can hold up to 12kg – more than sufficient for most camera/lens combinations. The tripods can be purchased on their own, or as a kit with one of two new ball heads, both of which are slim enough to fit between the tripods’ folded legs.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: As good as it gets when it comes to tripods.
